So yes. I know. The price may seem very high... But the experience is priceless! Viola, our guide, was just perfect, very warm and smiling: she was able to share her knowledge of the history of this place wonderfully well and make this visit fascinating! It was like, my daughter and I, with a Florentine friend (well-versed in history, the friend...). Thanks Viola!

It was an interesting tour and very entertaining despite the heat. It seemed a bit shorter than I had booked, but overall it was a good fit. It is important to know that there is not soooo much to see at the top of the palace, more wall paintings and ceiling decorations. Access to the lower area is free.

Really good tour with Jack who speaks fluent English without an accent. He also conveys his knowledge in an entertaining and lively way that maintains one's interest, without it becoming boring or long-winded in any way. We had another tour on the same day with a different guide, which was very boring. We have used get your guide several times, both in Paris, Rome and now Florence, and all guides have a great deal of knowledge. But there is a very big difference in how they convey their knowledge. But as mentioned above, Jack was absolutely top notch.
