Giacomo is THE BEST! Terrific education and knowledge. You can tell how he cares about his city and about you getting the most information and interest. His English is excellent! And he's patient with questions. We had the very best tour and explanation.

The tour was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history and it was truly incredible to learn all about Michaeloangelo’s David.

The tour turned out to be a private tour because no one else booked it that day. And it was phenomenal. The guide Francesca Ciappi was very nice and explained everything to us wonderfully. If we go through that area again I would hire her for sure.
