Our guide was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and had lovely sense of humour, which made our tour all the more enjoyable.

This was a very good tour. The gallery is busy, but we definitely got the most of it in the time we were there. The guide was very enthusiastic about the art and that made is so much better. The headsets are excellent and allow you to listen easily.

We were met by Paolo who was extremely friendly and organised throughout. We were given a fantastic insight into this beautiful city and their knowledge of the Academia Museum was extremely good. I would highly recommend this if you want to know more about Florence, we thought it was well worth the money!

Tonight I went on an amazing tour of Florence in the dark. Angelo made it entertaining, interesting and had some wonderful dark stories to tell about Florence from 1200BC - a lot of it documented in their histories - I won't spoil it for you - but there were Florentines who were not very nice. Also we heard about WW2... More

At first I thought it was fairly expensive but we were able to skip the queues (or at least dramatically reduce waiting times) and we were shown the most iconic and beautiful works whereas we may have otherwise got bogged down trying to look at everything. The descriptions and stories were very interesting and entertaining. Both tour guides we had... More

While we were unable to enter the Cathedral due to Easter the rest of this tour was excellent. Our guide was knowledgeable and even created a wonderful sense of anticipation as we worked our way towards our meeting with Michelangelo's David.

We signed up for a family tour of the Colosseum which boasted of skipping the line and catering to children. After several delays we started very late, the guide radios did not work making it impossible to hear our guide. In addition, an hour into the tour we were at the back of the line waiting to get in. Keep... More
