Fabulous experience. Valentina, our guide in Academia, was excellent. Explained history and clarified everything for us. Thank-you to her! Marcelo , who talked us through the important areas of the City, was truly incredible. Extremely knowledgeable, witty and engaging. He gave us a lot of facts and combined that with interesting history. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was excellent value for money. Certainly would encourage me to return. Thank-you!

Celia at the Academia was terrific.

Celia at the Academia was terrific. The Guide for the walking tour was very knowledgeable but it was distracting because he'd interrupt himself mid sentence to speak to a pretty girl walking by, such as "May I share your lunch?" Hard to follow along and disorienting to an English speaking tourist trying to follow his accent.

Both guides were informative and passionate!

This was a 2 part activity. For the Accademia visit, we were guided by very knowledgeable Lori, who was a fountain of knowledge. Then for the walking tour, we were kept amused by our guide Marcello, who seemed to know everyone in Florence. Top marks for both!
