“CAF Tour including Uffizi in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Despite the rain this was one of the best days in Florence. Our guide, Angelo, was fantastic - so knowledgable with a great sense of humour. If you go to Florence ask for Angelo as your tour guide - you'll want to take him home for dinner! Thank you Angelo from Patricia and David (St.Ives, Cornwall) x x

“GOOD TOUR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We did an afternoon tour with guide Angelo. Although it rained the whole time, he made it fun. He was entertaining as well as knowledgeable. The views were great and the walk through to the Uffizi Gallery where we had timed entry tickets, was interesting.

“Fascinating tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I just returned from Florence and had to laugh when I read the review which complained about the CAF PM Tour which supposedly had too much history from a reviewer who wanted more current cultural information. Perhaps that reviewer should have visited the Chamber of Commerce given that Florence was founded in 59 BCE and its history is the reason for the tour! In any event, the tour my wife and I just completed was very educational , enjoyable and well-run. Our guide, Angelo, was an expert in Art History and pointed out many fascinating details of the history of Florence. When we finally got to the Uffizi Gallery he really shined by focusing on the most important works and educating us without talking down. The tour was most enjoyable and well worth the time. I would strongly recommend it.

“You will be enlightened!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I took a full day tour of Florence with this company. The morning half was good - we crossed the river & saw panoramic views of the city, followed by a visit to the academia gallery. Our guide was knowledgeable & gave us a lot of information about Michelangelo & his works, particularly the highlight of academia - the original statue of David.

But it was the afternoon half of the tour, which was the pièce de résistance, all thanks to our guide - Angelo. He made everything come to life through his knowledge, mannerisms & passion. His tour of the Uffizi gallery was nothing short of enlightenment as he took each painting, carefully told the story around it & also explained the evolution of painting techniques through the ages via these masterpieces. Time just flew by & everyone wished it didn't have to end.

The next time i'm in Florence, I'll definitely want to take more tours guided by Angelo.

“Wonderful Siena and Sangiminiano Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We took a Siena and Sangiminiano Tour last 9 March and we enjoyed it very much! The drive is not so long and it's very pleasant, our guide on board ( her name was Alissia) had a great personality, she was very informative about Tuscany and Florence, but without being boring, she was very prepared and helpful on everything! Siena is a splendid city and we learnt a lot about its history and art thanks to the local guide. We were also given free time for our lunch and shopping and then we drove to this lovely little town on top of a hill: Sangiminiano is amazing and it would have been a shame to skip it! Honestly we really enjoyed this tour and we think it's absolutely worth the price!
