This was okay, the person meeting everyone did not seem legit at all and made my husband and myself feel a bit uncomfortable like it might be a scam, they were not wearing any identification/clothing for the tour agency and was chatting with someone walking down the street. Our guide was very nice, it was a bit hard to hear her even though we had the headphones. The museum was very crowded and very very loud!! Half of the museum was closed for updates. We have a 2 year old daughter and have been on other tours where we felt welcomed and not made to feel like a nuisance… I cannot say the same for this particular tour. The price should be lowered since half the museum was closed.. and the contact person working for get your guide should be wearing something more appropriate like a get your guide shirt or vest… not street clothes..

Alda is a very passionate guide and her love of art is infectious as she guides you through both the technique and details of the sculptures. Rather than simply seeing a sculpture for the sake of seeing it or adding it to your list, this tour takes you inside the mind of Michelangelo and shows the tangible evidence of his genius. You may have looked at David before; now you get to see it in exquisite detail and appreciate both the work and Michelangelo in a new light.
