An excellent guided tour.

Giovanna was an excellent guide. She did not over burden us with facts and figures. Her humour and balance and pace was really excellent. It was so much better having her than just turning up to see David.

We booked this tour last minute to get tickets in to see the David and it was so worth it! Our guide was very informative, and gave us great suggestions for the rest of florence as well as history of the sculptures and pieces.

Our guide was fantastic. Would have preferred to meet in front of the Academia rather than across town.

This was such an amazing experience. Laura was extremely knowledgeable and explained things that I never would have known had I not done this tour. She was extremely nice and very easy to understand. I would rebook this a million times over! Thank you Laura!

This was a rubbish experience. The departure point was NONEXISTENT. My husband and I searched for it for almost 40 mins and we couldn’t find it. I asked for a full refund and they wouldn’t give it to me. SAVE YOUR MONEY!

Dear Sarah, we are sorry you weren't able to find the meeting point and join the tour. We run that tour every day, in fact we also ran it on the day of your tour, and the other guests actually found the meeting point and enjoyed the tour. We waited for you for 10 minutes after the tour starting time, but then had to begin the tour as there were other people waiting. We could not reach you, you had all our contacts, including the guide's cell number, but you sent a message to the guide at 5pm saying you couldn't find the meeting point and asking for a refund (please note the meeting point was at 12:45pm, more than 4 hours before). You surely (or should) understand that it is quite difficult to grant a full refund under these circumstances. If you had lost a train (or a plane), would you pretend a refund just showing up hours after the train had left? We are always at disposal to help our guests, but to do so we need to communicate with them in order to find the best solution. Sending a message 4 hours after the tour starting time, just pretending a full refund because, you say, you didn't find the meeting point, does not really give us the opportunity to help you. We obviously cannot tolerate words like "trash experience" or "departure point nonexistent", as you did not experience the tour and the meeting point is clear and was found by all the other participants. You are more than welcome to try our experiences, so that you will then have all the true elements to judge and review them, but until then we invite everyone to read the other reviews on our tours, to have a more complete perspective on the quality that Florencetown delivers on them. Best regards Edoardo

It was a very good. I did not realize how fast 1.5 hour passing. It was too fast but not in a bad way. Time went fast because it was very interesting and entertaining.

Everyone may know the statute of David but, until I took Fabio's tour of the Accademia, did I fully appreciate the beauty, nuances, and vision employed to create David. Fabio gives a perfect historic and artistic background to this marvel. Highly recommended!!

Great way to visit the David!

Our Guide, Ricardo, was fantastic. It was an entertaining and informative walk from the meeting place to the Accademia. He was extremely knowledgeable and passed along many tips about Florence along the way. We had see the David on previous trips but this was the best tour yet.
