This was a full day tour----the morning included the Accademia with a focus on the sculpture of David by Michelangelo led by Angelo A. and the afternoon focused on works in the Uffizi Museum led by Mike (?). There was a lunch break between the two. Both seem to be art historians, but they certainly have the ability to bring... More

Fantastic tour given by our guide Angelo. It is by far one of the best tours I've been on. It is creepy and informative and overall a great night out that ends with some really really good gelato. Don't miss out!

This is the way everyone should see an art gallery. Even tough the place is super crowded, with the headset and a very knowledgeable guide, you focus on the art, not the people around you. We had Charles, who must be some kind of art historian. He was so knowledgeable I was amazed. Just like the Gallery, which only displays... More

We have just had the most amazing day in Florence! Morning was spent with Francesca who was so knowledgeable about the city and kept the pace ideal and kept quite a big group moving. The afternoon spent in the Uffizi with Antonio was excellent. We had been before on our own but we saw so much more in the hour... More

The gallery was alright. Given that the gallery was after we had already seen the sights in Rome, it was lacking in wow but not crowds.

A must see! Best part of my journey. Job well done. I took the morning & afternoon tours. The tour guides were knowledgable and very enthusiastic. Tour starts at 9 am and it is skip-the-line. You are given a wireless receiver with earbuds. Not high quality sound. You need to concentrate on what you hear. You walk with a group... More

We did the city wonders full day tour of Florence with Claudia and really enjoyed it. Claudia was helpful and knowledgable and gave a great introduction to Florence, both the history and local advice on things to do and getting around. She particularly was very knowledgable about the art history and gave great insights, which meant we got so much... More
