      Thanks Medici family
      The Medici Chapel is a beautiful example of Florentine art and architecture. The tombs of the Medici are spectacular to see.

      Made of Tuscany Ruined our Vacation
      This company ruined our Tuscan vacation. I booked for 4 people e and arrived at the meeting spot a half hour early. No one had us on their list. I asked the people in pink shirts and blue shirts at the check in, I asked every bus driver, no one had our name and none of them had ever heard of Made in Tuscany. When I finally got through to the office to ask what had happened ( the office called me back after all the buses had left and we were there alone),the woman on the phone hung upon me. The reason we came to Tuscany was to visit Seina, Chianti and San Gimignano. We were leaving the area the next day so couldn't book another tour. We were devastated. The company said they would refund my $360 but that didn't make up for the fact we didn't visit the areas we came for. The company then blamed it on someone else, they said they had contracted withanother carrier ( they never told me) and the carrier's system dropped our names. They never took responsibility. We brought my niece and nephew and this company ruined a $9k trip and the memories we hoped to make. There are plenty of tour companies, DO NOT USE THIS ONE! Read less

      Beware! I purchased tickets on this site. The money was taken from my account immediately, yet I have never received confirmation. I have chased and chased and just get ignored. Lesson learnt 🤬

      The best placenta to visit in Firenze, even better than Ufizzi. Don't miss The opportinity to explore the gardens.

      Amazing hidden gem of fabulous frescoes
      A must-do place to visit while in Florence. This amazing religious estate offers a taste of life for Dominican friars but, more impressively, a wide range of amazing fresco paintings in their dormitories, of which a large number are by Fra Angelico (15th century). To really appreciate the skills and time put into these pieces, you really must visit the Church and the dormitories. In addition, there are lots of other unique historical treasures, including 15th-century manuscripts used for music. A must-do place to visit.

      Not what I expected
      If you have plenty of time and are into walking on gravel and up hills do visit. I stupidly thought it was a garden not just trees and statues.. Seem to take forever just to exit.

      Not a wine tour
      Not a wine tour, it is a walking tour of sights with a stop at a wine shop at the end! You also have to drink the wine at this location in a plastic glass. If you are looking for a wine tour ie tasting wine at different locations then this is not the one be warned.

      Just average
      Vanessia was very knowledgable but went too fast and was hard to understand when she wore her mask.

      Medicis departed in Mannerist glory.
      Architecturally, in this case more is more. Today's billionaires couldn't do better. This is an excellent example of Michaelangelo's mannerism, the style that followed Brunelleschi's more restrained interpretation of Roman architecture. The surprise was that in the side room, good old Lorenzo the Magnificent had a modest sarcophagus decorated with unfinished works by Michaelangelo. His descendants were treated better. Mike left for better opportunities in Rome before the work was finished. His design for the grand chapel wasn't constructed until much later. We couldn't get skip the line tickets ahead of time but there were only six people in line when we got there in mid-morning.

      Don’t book if you expect facts and highlights from the book. Great historical tour (but our second).
      Please be aware when you want to book this tour! It’s not at all what they promise. Despite a very professional tour guide and visiting some beautiful historical places… It had almost NOTHING to do with the novel or the movie. We had a history tour the day before and this didn’t ad any value on top of that. I normally don’t post comments like this and try to solve this with the touroperator. But they take days to respond and don’t acknowledge the fact that maybe 5% of the tour is about the book/novel.

      The tour only took us to Palazzo Vechio and when we were supposed to go forward on the footsteps of Robert Langdon the guide told us that there are only 10 mins left and we don't have time. She lost a lot of time in every room of the Palace and we had 1 tourist who didn't know English so we had to wait on every explanation for the Spanish translation as well.

      Fascinating tour in beautiful surrounds
      As lovers of Dan Brown’s Inferno, it was fascinating to see the real life scene of the book and movie. Eleanor was very knowledgeable about the history of the Palazzo Vecchio and the Medici family, and the works and life of Dante Alghieri. We thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour as our introduction to Florence.
