Our 1st visit to Florence and we were not disappointed - all of our hopes were surpassed and our Italy XP experience contributed

For our day trip we had 2 guides - one lady for the morning and a different lady for the afternoon session. Both were 1st class but the one who did the afternoon session was absolutely outstanding in terms of enthusiasm, product knowledge and preparedness to answer all questions in a manner that held her audience spellbound.

The amazing statue of David was the highlight for sure.

We were very happy with this tour from start to finish. Our morning guide for the Galleria dell'Accademia and walk through historic Florence was excellent and she was well spoken and informative throughout. She was so excited to show us David. The Tuscan lunch was good and a nice break. The afternoon started with a bus ride to Fiesole and I did take away a star for this because we were not able to get off the bus. There was commentary throughout the ride which was good. We had a different guide for the afternoon portion who was equally great throughout with a wonderful sense of humour. She pointed out the most important paintings and why. The day was a long one, a little over 9 hours, but well worth it. We would definitely recommend this tour.

The tour was extensive and covered all of the major highlights

A very extensive day tour however it was broken up between a morning and afternoon session with 2 different guides. The guides were very good and enthusiastic however some confusion on how to get back to the starting point to join the afternoon tour.
