My wife and I booked various group and private tours (food, wine, historic walking) while visiting Italy this past March, all of which we enjoyed and all of which came highly recommended on this website. HOWEVER, the Uffizi and Accademia tour we went on with Bernardo through Touring Florence was by far the most informative and enjoyable of any tour we went on.
We are not art afficianados by any means, but we wanted to see the Uffizi and Accademia based on what we had read while researching things to do in Florence. Based on the initial reviews from this site, we decided that we would give this company a shot. We hit the jackpot! Bernardo's passion and knowledge of the pieces we observed created a desire in us to learn more. He is entertaining and educating all in one. I felt as though I had paid for an unstuffy, energetic, art history lesson, rather than just a plain tour of Florence's best museums.
Fadi, who also runs tours, as well as the business side of the company, was great to interact with as well. From our initial email communication, to our greeting in Florence prior to the tour, to the his goodbye in Florence at the end of our tour, Fadi was always prompt, genuine, and professional.
These guys have a great thing going, and we can't wait to give them more buisness.
