Great tour - so informative and entertaining too. The fact that it was a small group only 8 people made it a lot easier to get around the city and a much more personal experience as well. Would definitely recommend this to all first-time visitors to Florence. Even the torrential downpour half-way through didn't dampen our enthusiasm and enjoyment!
A wonderful way to hear about the history and visit highlights of this beautiful Rennissance city. Guide was knowledgeable and excited to share her city.
My husband and I attended the morning walking tour and skip the line Accademia tour with Antonella yesterday. She really showed us the best of the hidden gems of the old city. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and humour ensured all 6 participants had a wonderful few hours. As we watched the large tour groups wander aimlessly through the narrow streets looking bored, I could only imagine the text-book style information delivery they must be getting. Antonella on the other hand, with her 6 participants could stand us on a corner and point out every detail of the 12th, 13th and 14th century buildings and others of course before we went for a closer inspection. One of the best tours weve done so far this trip. Thank you Antonella.
Highlight of our visit to Florence. Our guide Ana was excellent, very informative, clear and interesting. Small group of 8 which made it more personal and Ana was happy to answer any question asked. Really enjoyed the different perspectives she showed us.
Seeing the David is a must in Florence. Seeing the real thing is very special, even though there are several copies around the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us down some interesting out-of-the way streets in Florence before our Skip the Line view of David at the Accademia. Once inside as the museum limits the number of people inside at any one time we felt at ease and not at all rushed, pushed, etc. Everyone seemed reverent in the presence of this great work of art.
Our guide, Laura, was informative and very patient in answering all our questions. She also provided a few on-point recommendations. The tour was worth the extra money and made our experience much more robust.
We had a wonderful tour with only 8 people in our group. Our guide was enthusiastic, funny and very knowledgable. In addition to the well-known sites, she also showed us some things that are less visited but still very interesting. We highly recommend this tour which ends with a visit to see David in the Accademia Gallery.
We really enjoyed this tour. Antonella was very passionate about her city and this made the tour. Warning - The skip the line at the Accademia didn't really seem to work as the queue for skip the line was as long as the normal queue. Antonella seemed to get us through the queue faster,mutha others, however we had a 12pm time allocation and we gained entry nearly 30 mins after this time. Despite this wait we rated it 5 stars.
This tour was great! We had an awesome tour guide, Antonella. She made the trip. :
Guide was amazing and full of art history. Worth the money. See and learn so much in a short period of time.
SkIpping to the head of the line was a great time saver.
Great tour. The guide, Antoinette , is very knowledgable about the history and culture of Florence . It was just the right amount of time for the tour.
Tour guide was very informative. Walking tour was very interesting. The Accademia Gallery was great and the tour guide was excellent with her knowledge
Even though it rained we really enjoyed our tour. Our guide did her best to keep us dry.
Great tour for our first day in Florence! Tour guide was excellent.
This was such a great tour, the tour guide Antonella was fantastic she was so informative and good at making it all come to life with her stories. The highlight of course was David what an amazing statue but learning all the history of Florence and how it all came about. I wouldn't have seen half as much of Florence if I had not taken this tour.
Tour guide (katarina?) was great! She showed us some smaller churches with fantastic art that would be hard to find if you didn and #39;t know where to look! Ending at the museum was perfect because we kept exploring!
Our guide was terrific. Her enthusiasm kept all of us, who were jet lagged and weary, full of excitement at what was to come next. I think that the plan for the tour was superb also.
Good walking tour. Many good points about the history of the city were explained. The David in the Accademia is a must see...
This was a fabulous tour! Antonella was sensational! As we walked through the streets she gave a very unique perspective and history on the changing of the people, the buildings and the culture throughout the centuries of this ancient but yet still so beautiful city! She even recommended trying the traditional Florentine street food, lampredotto, although a very different food selection, I was not disappointed! Thank you for contributing to the wonderful memories made while visiting!!
We had very limited time in Florence and so this CRASH tour was ideal. In December there are fewer tourists and so we were not shoulder to shoulder with the mobs that can be in Florence.
Great guide who showed us many new things even after living in Florence for a year!
This was my first tour with Viator. Our guide was excellent, and I learned a lot about Florence, even after 5 previous visits. Our guide had much interesting information to share. The size of the group was just right. I will book with Viator again.
Great trip. Saw everything we wanted to see which was a lot. Easy pace and very informative. Great back ground history to put everything in perspective.
Katerina, was knowledgeable, organized and answered all questions! !
Next time we visit Florencia, we will surely book her for another tour!!
