Not worth it if you know Italian culture
Christine S
, Sep 2019
Although the guide, Elise P, was very knowledgeable, this was not really what I was expecting. I booked the tour in January when the website description gave the impression we would have access to the Medici corridor, not just follow its route from outside. I now realise the corridor is not currently open to the public, but I did not feel this was made clear at the time of booking. Elise told us a lot about Florentine history, art and literature, but I already knew most of what she told us, and we have both walked this route many times before. Overall, therefore, an expensive tour which did not add much to what I already knew. Good however if you are new to the city. Obviously the option for the Pitti Palace or Boboli gardens would also be good if you do not know the city.

Both the tour and the guide were very good. The guide spoke excellent English and knew his history. Very informative.
