Booked on the spur of the moment whilst having a drink in Florence, about an hour before it started, we turned up to the meeting place a few minutes from central Florence and was greated by Leonardo, who is truely fantastic, he was funny and knowledgable and made the trip extra special for for daughter, keeping her entertained and laughing throughout, the tour takes you on a great route around the city, which you would never get to see on foot, with plenty of time to stop, look around the main city attractions without feeling rushed, we were dropped off at a place of our choice at the end. Great experiance and would highly recommend, just make sure you ask for Leonardo
This was a wonderful tour! The tour guide was prompt, attentive, very informative and truly took interest in what we were interested in hearing more about and seeing more of. She took the time to learn about our interests and catered some of the covered discussions towards our interests and had multiple follow up questions to make sure we were seeing the items she was pointing out and talking about. She also took the time to discuss area restaurants and other areas we could visit related to our interests for the remainder of the day. The pace was perfect and covered everything we expected. Truly a treat and a wonderful tour!
The tour was good in general but I'd prefer it if the lunch was a bit earlier. We were taken to a leather shop before lunch and everyone was already very hungry as we started the day at 7am. The museum visit was short but given the duration of the tour, I think it was appropriate. The guide gave us plenty of information on where to go in our free time.
We were a group of 3 travelling in January 2020 and lucky enough to be the only ones on this tour. The bonus of travelling in winter and booking small group tours. Chiara was our guide for our tour. She was amazing. Full of stories and interesting facts. She even climbs the Dome with you and tells you about the stories depicted in the paintings.
The sites were amazing and we hardly had to wait. The tour guide was very nice and Incredibly knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend. However, the climb was much more intense than anticipated. Wear sneakers for the narrow spriral stairs. If you are claustrophobic at all, skip the climb. But definitely see Il Duomo and the David.
