We went on this tour at the end of December. The beginning of the tour was ok with an Italian guide providing Italian and English translation. We went to the top of Florence and were given some time to take photos. We were then told that as there were so many Italians in another

Hello Thanks, we highly appreciate your feeback and we would like to respond that: the waiting time at the entrance of any museum is not under control and everybody needs to respect it, in some periods of the year the city gets overcrowded and even the fast line joined by the people who have a reservation (us) moves slowly. Moreover, we do have the Special day in Florence option available for sale every day (except Monday) that includes both museums Accademia and Uffizi with lunch and it is one of the most appreciated activities we offer but that is not what you have reserved, you just bought the first half of it and we do not feel responsible for this. I remain at your full disposal and we wish we could welcome you again in Florence and have the opportunity to show you more. Kind Regards Antonella

Did this tour and was impressed with the details and knowledge provided on the tour. No fault of the company but was just not impressed as much with our Florence tour with others more as a city. Would have liked to do a food tour rather than sightseeing if I could do differently

We found this a great tour to see Florence best galleries. The museums are amazing and the knowledge of the guides we had were great. We got a little annoyed as the language translation was in Spanish and English so you tended to zone out the Spanish which made you miss the

Dear Andrew, We're really glad that you enjoy the time with our guides and that you enjoyed your stay in Florence. On the other hand, we would like to let you know that, as you can see on our website, all of our tours are confirmed in English and Spanish, so normally the bus tours are bilingual, but in the museums each group has an "individual" guide which only speaks English or Spanish. And yes, it is a tour that is given in two parts because we give time to eat to all the customers, it could be a bit heavy to do the whole tour without giving the necessary time for them to eat. Furthermore, you're right, the meeting point is outside the train station, the agency with which you booked had to have communicated to you about this. The meeting point that we are currently using is the one that has granted us the municipality, so we can not do anything but stick to their directives. We are in continuous contact with local authorities to improve the situation, and fortunately starting from November we will be assigned a new meeting point more suited to the needs of our customers. Best Regards, Ciao Florence Staff

This was really two half-day tours with a lunch ticket in between. Both halves were very interesting, but a very long wait at the Accademia Museum made it impossible to take full advantage of this site and still have time for a relaxing lunch before the afternoon tour. It was

We had several guides, but Larissa was specially bad. She guided us through the Uffizi gallery, and constantly suggested that we should leave because it was very boring. She mentioned that husbands would divorce their wives for making them visit the gallery. The tickets were

Responded 18 May 2018
Dear Madame, thank you for your feedback. We are extremely sorry for not having met your expectations, we will take your commentary into serious consideration in order to improve our services. However, let me take advantage of your report to express our point of view. All our professional guides are carefully selected by our manager, who examines their language skills as well as their attitude and passion about their profession. Moreover, all of them have already passed an official examination in order to get the certification to exercise their profession as an official tour guide. I am sorry if you did not find Larissa's sense of humour appropriate to the context, I am sure she was just trying to be nice and to familiarize with the group. Anyhow we will tell her to avoid this kind of innocent jokes in the future and to stick to the artistic and historic contents only. Since you are not mentioning other issues about her, I assume that you have at least appreciated her language skills and her knowledge. Regarding the price of our Florence full day tour, I think you should also consider all the services included in the package, that is to say Accademia and Uffizi tickets with reservation (€16 for the Accademia and €24 for the Uffizi), 2 bus trips to such panoramic spots as Piazzale Michelangelo and Fiesole, Florence tour guides at your disposal for the whole day, walking tours and a typical Tuscan lunch. The price is balanced according to the wide range of services offered. As for the lunch, it is served in a typical "trattoria" located in San Lorenzo district, just besides the Duomo Square. Actually you did not pay $18 per person but €11. In fact, morning and afternoon city tours are also sold separately at respectively €55 and €67 (so €122 in total), while the combination of these 2 tours with lunch included is €133. You may agree with me that €11 is a quiet reasonable price for a lunch consisting of bruschettas, 2 different kinds of pasta, a dessert and water and wine included. I am sorry if you did not appreciate the quality of the restaurant, which is actually rated with 4 stars and a half on Tripadvisor. I would like to thank you again for your feedback and I wish you all the best. Regards, Veronica
