Dead artists brought to life!

This was a great tour and well worth doing. We (four friends)were part of a mixed group of twelve. Our guide was excellent, explaining the significance of some of the main sights of the city and many that we would never have chanced upon by ourselves. She prepared us for what we would see in the Accademia Gallery providing relevant information about the various exhibits (e.g. Michelangelo’s statue of David) and recommended different areas to visit which enhanced our visit there. It was a definite advantage to be able to fast track into the museum so all in all we would definitely recommend this tour.

This tour was full of information! The guide knew his stuff and I feel like I got to know the history of Florence. A lot of the tour is outside the museum which was cool but I think we would have liked more time in the tour in the muesum. Overall, we enjoyed the tour!

Chiara was an excellent guide around Florence. Very knowledgeable and helpful little tips about things to see and do. Definitely worth using the Skip the Line to see David. Don’t buy the fluffed up Gelato - full of gas. Tip of the day from Chiara !
