    Great experience to view the most important works (including David) with a guide and to obtain information about the history and political relationships in Florence.

    Our guide was really great and engaging! However, it was not obvious that admission to the museum was not included - that took us a bit by surprise! It was not in the description and only noted very far down the web page. While we appreciated our guide's knowledge and recommendations following the tour, the price didn't seem entirely worth it once we added the cost of admission we paid onsite. If you're looking for a relatively quick tour with a more in-depth look at Michelangelo's David, you would probably still enjoy this tour very much! If you already know the general history of David, you might consider visiting on your own or another tour option.
