Fantastic tour! Well worth the money for the experience. I’m a person who usually likes to do things by myself but I am SO glad I did the tour. You learn so much you just couldn’t on your own—from history to practical tips. Selvia our guide was amazing! She went above & beyond. After the tour, she helped me with a personal problem like a friend, taking me to a local pharmacy. This is the tour you want! Ask for Selvia!!!

tour in French. The guide Marie adapted the order of the visits according to the time of the climb to the dome. Her comments were relevant and she insisted on the essential points, eg in the visit to the museum. We were a group of 6. At the end she gave us lots of other tips about Florence

A real pleasure to have a guide in this magnificent Italian city, especially for this beautiful cathedral (Duomo) up to its summit with a view of the city of Florence. An ideal choice to avoid the queues and the usual hassles ( tourist traps - bad restaurants / ice cream parlors / museums or places to visit)
