Our guide, Guido, was fantastic. He spent a few moments before the tour finding out a little about us and really made a point to highlight things that be of interest.

He was very knowledgeable, energetic and fun. I think the true test was that our 17 year old son, who has been pulled along on many tours, was enthusiastic and told us later that it was the best tour experience he has ever had!

Dear Client, Thank you for your 5 star review about our Tour of Florence with our guide Guido. I will certainly share your comments with him. Our team of Italy guides share with us the same passion for their job and are very happy when clients finish the tour with a smile on their face. I Warm regards, Monica

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and took her time to explain the sites and even adjusted the tour for us to see additional sites. David was the highlight.

A little disappointed given the cost of the tour. The highlight was certainly seeing David by Michealangelo however we arrived nearly 45 minutes early at the museum - time which could have been spent seeing more of the sights en route and having deeper explanation of symbols, architecture etc. During the tour we did visit some beautiful sights particularly the churches visited were spectacular, but there was little information forthcoming when walking between the sights. This was a semi private tour and not such good value for money. It was a little lacklustre. We were told more on an earlier free tour.

We booked the Skip the Line: Small group Florence Renaissance Walking Tour with Accademia Gallery prior to our visit to the city. We received notification several days prior to the tour that it might be cancelled due to lack of reservations. Confirmation of cancellation was not made until 1 day before the tour was scheduled. This did not leave any time to book a different tour. The company lists their cancellation policy as 100% cancellation fee if within two days. Would be nice if they held themselves to these standards as well. We did the Accademia Gallery with purchasing advanced tickets and didn't have to wait in line. We also found some wonderful free walking Renaissance tours as well.

Dear Russell, We are sorry to read you are not satisfied with our services. As you didn't mention neither your tour date nor booking number we can only offer a general reply. If then yo would like to contact us directly we can verify what occured and provide a more precise reply. It looks like you booked the tour via a reseller - we don't know what information you were given at the time of booking or if you read all the info provided. Our small group tour requires a min of 4 people to operate - our Operations Dept check the bookings situation several days prior each tour date and in case the min num of people has not yet been met they notify the customers in advance. In these cases we always specify that sales are still open and we can wait until the day before tour date to see if the situation changes. Alternatively we offer joining the tour on another date or upgrading at an extra cost to a private tour just for you. At this stage you always have a choice - to cancel immediately if you don't want to wait or wait until the day before in case we receive more last minute reservations. In case the tour does not confirm due to lack of participants and you cannot reschedule we notify the reseller to issue a full refund. If you have any issues regarding the reseller's policy it's best if you address this with them rather than on supplier's page as the payment was not made to us. As previously stated by our policy if a tour is canceled for operational reasons you are entitled to a full refund. It is of course up to anyone if they want to book tours operated legally by a licensed tour operator or if they prefer to join the so-called "free" tours which usually are not so free and in most cases do not have the necessary licenses... We remain at disposal Best regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept

Antonella took us on a discovery walk around a beautiful city. Why were the statues unfinished at the entry to the gallery where David stands? Which of the statues in the town hall square are genuine originals? Antonella can tell you this and many more interesting facts. Throughly enjoyable and interesting tour.

Anna was our tour guide on June 24, 2019. She led us on a great walking tour of Florence, sharing great information about all the sites and important locations. She was very passionate about Florence, about art and about the history of the city, which made it really meaningful. And her introduction to the David was excellent as well. She was warm and kept the group moving at a good pace in light of the heat. Definitely worth the investment!

Dear Michele Thank you for your feedback. I presume you are referring to the tour that operated on 22nd June Saturday - our guide Anna was your tour guide on that day. I am very happy the tour was wonderful and I have already forwarded your comments to her. Thank you for the recommendation! Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept

We were a group of 4 doing the 3 hour walking tour of Florence with a skip the queue to see ‘David’. Our guide was Laura Amerighi and she was fantastic. She gave us so much information and history of Florence. The 3 hours went bye so quickly even on a day with cutting cold winds. We felt Laura’s enthusiasm of art and Florence was catching. She is a valuable advocate for Florence and it was lovely to have a guide who loves her job and inspires tourists to love her city. Laura is definitely the best guide we have had during our tour of Italy. A great way to see Florence!

We took the Florence Walking Tour with skip the line Accademia access on 9/16. Overall the tour was adequate, but honestly we learned more about Florence on other tours we took ( one was a food tour and the other a guided tour of the Uffizi). Our guide was good and skip the line access to the Accademia was nice, but I feel like we spent a fair amount of time walking down streets getting to the next talking stop without any commentary along the way.

Dear Client, Thank you for providing your feedback. We understand that overall you are satisfied with the tour and the skip the line option to see Michelangelo's David at the Accademia Gallery. Our tour is an introductory tour to the city so of course it includes a bit everything - if you attended more specific tours like a guided Uffizi tour or a tour dedicated specifically to local food then of course those tours were bound to be more specific since they concentrated on one subject. The guide that accompanied you on the tour is one of our most experienced guides and has conducted many tours for us for many years now. Perhaps you simply expected a different type of tour. In any case we will mention your comments to our guide and will discuss if any improvement is needed. Best regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept

Antonella F. was a marvelous tour guide -- friendly, funny, engaging and passionate about the beautiful city of Florence. We booked this tour because we couldn't get online tickets to the Galleria dell'Accademia, but it was much more than a skip-the-line experience. The walking tour was very interesting and Antonella showed us things we wouldn't have found on our own. After our stroll, she took us right in to the museum and gave us a great foundation for appreciating the phenomenal David and the other works in this great museum.
