Excellent guided tour with Elena. Straight in with no delays. Very informative tour by a happy guide with a great sense of humour. Many thanks . It made the Ufizi a pleasure when we would otherwise have been overloaded with the vast quantity of art.

The Boboli garden is huge and it would take at least 4 hours to visit it completely but it deserves to be visited because it is enchanting

Very nice for kids, maybe better in spring. Very modern toilets, many drinking fountains.

It was an excellent tour with an excellent guide Martina

Very nice people and remember to eat before going!
