    We had a great tour at the Accademia Gallery! We initially booked a small group tour but ended up on a private tour which was absolutely fantastic! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and kept our interest and attention throughout. It was such a great experience! Without our tour guide we wouldn’t have had the same experience to really appreciate the art and significance.

    Enjoyed the tour. We got to go, even though there was only two of us. The meeting point was surprisingly hard to find. Florence street numbers are confusing. We called and the guide met us outside the Gallery’s entrance. Very pleased. Thanks so much!

    We arrived on time, no guide! I texted the company to report this and a guide was eventually sent. 25 minutes after we were instructed to arrive a guide showed up. Thank goodness! She did her job, spoke very good English and I would tour with her again. But will I take a risk with and book the company again? Not likely.
