Loved this tour. I did extensive research on deciding which tours to attend while in Florence and picked this one because of the small group size, early access to see Michelangelo's David and walk to the top of the Dome. Charles, our guide, did an outstanding job! Very knowledgeable about everything we saw and the history along with the history of Florence. Access to see the David before the crowds was outstanding! The walk to the top of the dome was a bit daunting but doable and the view was outstanding. I would highly recommend this tour.

Vanessa, our tour guide, was truly exceptional. The detail and excitement she provided in her explanation of the David and Duomo gave us the best appreciation possible for both. She provided great insight on Michelangelo's life and the creation of the statue, as well as the architecture and artwork within the Duomo. You could tell she really loves her job, and it made us love the tour.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I missed the start of my tour. The company was gracious enough to rebook me later that day. Consistently impressed with quality of tour guides who are attentive, gracious and offer much education.

Viola was a wonderful guide and extremely knowledgeable! We were able to see and learn so much in a short period of time. David was even more impressive in person :).
