The tour hit all the big highlights quickly. A great way to start your time in Florence and find out what lesser known spots you’d like to return and explore, while also checking off one of the busiest (David). Claudia was fantastic! Knowledgeable and considerate - keeping us in the shade and sharing lots of tips for visitors. Our 7 year old enjoyed the tour, but our younger two kids struggled. It was a lot of walking, standing, and history that went over their heads. Best for older kids. 6 and under will just end up making themselves a distraction. Lol. We still made the whole tour and all of us had fun seeing the David and surrounding museum.

The walking tour was pretty basic, but the guide was nice and well informed. Maybe start earlier to beat the heat.

Our guide Valentina was great! So knowledgeable and made the experience much better. Definitely would recommend if you want to know the history behind Florence. The skip the line tickets were also much needed to avoid the long lines.

Very poor tour, mostly because of the guide. She was boring, never heard anything interesting about anything in Florence, mostly complained about the weather and the weather and the sun and the system. Total waste of money.

Skip the line is great and David is incredible

The walking tour takes you through several areas of the town center to provide history and context of the walk to the Accademia gallery. The guide was fun and gave great facts and information. During high season, there still is a bit of a queue to get in even with the skip the line (it's by time slot). Note that the tour notes a 90 minute trip but that was really just getting to Accademia. We still had about a half hour after that for queueing in the line and then going through the David exhibit. Plan to budget at least 2 hrs. The David itself is remarkable and worth the wait. Headphones are provided to assist with hearing when crowded. There are a ton of people there so this is well worth it.

They are not accommodating

Careful booking this tour if you are limited time. The tour will NOT wait for you even if you are less than ten minutes away. As was our case. The streets of Florence (although beautiful) were very hard to figure out. It was easy to get lost. We texted the tour guide right before the trip started and they did not respond. We were not that far away so we texted again. Still no response. A kind lady called the company for us as she spoke Italian and they told her that they were not waiting for us. We then offered to walk to the first “stop” and meet the group there and they said no. They basically were not helpful. I do realize that their policy says to arrive 15 minutes early, but like I said- we contacted them to say we were lost. It turns out that we’re we’re just around the block and could have run to catch up, but AGAIN- they didn’t respond and help us. We asked to take a later tour and they didn’t have one that day, needless to say- I was extremely dissatisfied. I have purchased many tours with friends and family using Viator, but in this case my recommendation is- Do not take this tour.

Tour guide did not provide any useful or historical info or places and ended 30 min early. The skip the line ticket only got you into the line for skip the line entry and still took about 1 hour total to get in. You are better off buying your own ticket and skipping this tour.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and helpful. Stephanie walked us through history, architecture and art is an accessible way despite some rain and crowds. I had expected a few less people for a semi-private tour, but with the headsets we had no trouble hearing. It was a delight seeing David again. He hasn’t changed since last saw him 42 years ago. :) Thank you!
