We had a great guide who gave us a lot of information about the history of the palace and of Venice since the palace was erected. He was especially well educated in art history and pointed us to the most interesting spots. We would have missed many of them without his help. Besides the statues and paintings, we were most impressed with the building itself and its history in connecdtion with the history of the city. We were truly impressed to see for the first time the original painting of Machiavelli which is so well known from the title cover of his most famous book. We were very grateful for the competent guide.
We were the only 2 on this tour so they called to change or cancel - we upgraded to add on Siena - so pleased we did. It’s a long day and you start at 0830 at the coach station out of town ( very easy to get to on tram) then visit walled cities, Siena, Saint Gimignano and stayed for a great lunch of cheeses, ham, bread pasta and wines. The wine is very well explained and the lunch was excellent but you see none of the process or cellars, Which was disappointing. Never the less I would recommend the tour. The guide was great and lots of free time in each city.
Our tour guide, Julio, was absolutely fantastic! The driver, Raul, was absolutely fantastic! This tour was worth every penny. The drive was beautiful, all the locations we stopped were breathtaking. The winery lunch was delicious, and really exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed all of the information that Julio gave us and we also enjoyed the quiet alone time we were given to explore each destination. Julio has a difficult task of speaking to people in three languages, he was excellent. Very personable and warm.
A perfect day! Our guide was kind snd the tour very well done and organised. Each place with the exact time for enjoy and not get bored. And the lunch was amazing! I did the trip with my 2 years old son and he also enjoyed it and the guide brought a seat for the van and lunch for him as well. Excellent experience!
The walking tour was amazing! Eduardo gave us a great introduction into the history of Florence. He knew how to get and keep the attention of all of us (2 adults and one child) and managed well to include our son into the tour. Eduardo was very nice and we enjoyed the tour very much!
