The tour was excellent, great value. I found our guide, Ilaria to be knowledgeable and fun, providing the most interesting parts of the Duomo history and drawing me in the fact that this Duomo has been and is the soul of the city. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to learn about the Duomo without diving into many details and purely historical facts.

The tour was great, the guide was knowledgeable and nice. The only observation I would make would be that the meeting spot should be more clearly marked and signaled in the information given. We waited for a bit in the wrong place before asking around and reaching the right spot.

Jose was an excellent guide and very passionate about the subject. We enjoyed the experience immensely and was amazed by the architecture of the Duomo. The audio guide went off from time to time which is understandable given the stone construction of the building and the group moving through it. All in all very value for money and highly recommend Jose as an excellent guide
