Overall the tour was good for visiting the two famous galleries . We started the first part of the tour to The Accademia reasonably promptly and the guide was knowlegable so we were very happy with the coverage. Then it was a quick walk across the main squares to the Uffizzi

Dear customer Thanks for sharing your feedback, that is so much important for us both to improve and for feeling gratified! We are glad that overall you have enjoyed the visit of the two main museums of Florence, about that we would like to clarify a couple of points of your review: 1. The walking tour: what you have defined a 'quick walk' is 1 hour walking tour through the three main squares of the town, filled with a lot of information. 2. The waiting time at the Uffizi: normally we do not wait that much because we have a fast access but sometimes it might happen (during the peak of the high tourist season) that there are other groups with a reservation before us, at which point we need to wait a few minutes. However, the waiting time in these rare cases is never that long and the line moves pretty fast (we still have the fast access !) 3. Plus, of course, we have our guides beforehand assigned to our services (we could never find a guide at the moment ahah). The operators just spend some minutes to organize the group's access by splitting it in smaller ones (following a museum internal rule). Lastly, we understand that you felt tired because the tour is very intense but, on the other hand, you knew it would be like this when you chose it and you did because probably did not have enough time and needed to concentrate all in one day. Imagine if the guide stopped at every painting! Of course he/ she needs to make a selection of the most popular ones, otherwise the tour would never finish by the scheduled time (and you would feel even more tired) - you would need three days to admire every single work of art! For this reason we wish you to come back in the future and enjoy  We do hope you will get a chance to come back and enjoy Florence longer :) Kind Regards Ciaoflorence Staff

This tour lacked deep understanding of the galleries. The tour started 30 min late, and half of it was in Spanish (probably because not enough English speakers signed up for the EN tour) which wasted a lot of my precious time in Florence, repeating everything said in another

Dear customer Thanks for your feedback, please let us clarify something for you and for the other travellers who read. The tour does not start late but all the customers are kindly requested to to be ready on spot about twenty minutes earlier for checking - in to make us able to start the tour on time. When the tour is given in two languages everything said must be explained in the same quality and quantity in both the languages by our guide. We give a great importance to that. The guide just says the same things in English and Spanish. All of our tour guides are well selected, professional and old in this job, we are not used to receive this kind of comment about them. We are sorry if you had a different feeling and did not enjoy. We strongly hope that you will have the opportunity to come back in the future and change your mind. Take care Best Regards Ciaoflorence Staff

We did the all day tour and it was well worth it. Three different guides for three different stages worked well. All were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The walking pace was a stroll and relaxing. The guides tended to hunt out shade when they could. The meal was ok – two

We had such a great time with Elvis - he was the most gracious host! He went above and beyond for my family and agreed to see us for a tour last minute, despite the fact that his day was coming to an end. He was professional, fun, personable and helpful. He is an amazing

We did the morning tour of Accademia and Uffizi in the afternoon. Wow the statue of David was amazing as was the rest of the tour. The skip the line is well worth it even though we had to line up for a bit at Uffizi but it was a very busy day(certainly not the tour company’s

Dear customer, Thank you for your review, we highly appreciate. We work with passion every day and we are very happy and grateful when customers leave such a nice comment. Sorry to hear about the headset, we do the sound check before starting the tour and the tour guide has some extra radios on him/her to be able to change it in case there might be anything wrong with it, it is a pity that you had not informed her. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again! Sincerely, Ciaoflorence Staff
