Reviews of Group Tour of the Centre of Florence and Uffizi Gallery

There were only 3 couples In my group. 1 from the USA me from the UK and the other couple were Spanish. Our tour guide Angels was amazing.
She changed from Italian (her native tounge) to English to Spanish and was fluent in each language. Easily understandable and seemed to have a genuine enthusiasm for her work and explaining all of the interesting things we saw in great detail.
The tour went through Florence city on a mini bus where we saw the medieval gates. Up to Michelangelo's Hill. We got off the bus for half an hour to look at the amazing view over the city. Pictures were taken. On the far left hand side you can even see a big stretch of the medieval wall still standing!
Then I t was back on the bus to the centre where we walked around having lots of important and interesting sights history explained to us. We passed the churches and cathedrals and finished the day at the academia Galleria to see the statue of David.
Lots of art work was explained to us with the techniques used and we were given a brief history of Michelangelo. Very, very interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Walking tour of Michelangelo's David
We had an excellent walking tour of Michelangelo's David and a surprising bus tour to the top of the city. The view was amazing and was worth the cost of the tour if you only did the bus tour. Our guide was the best! Her name is Eleonora and she was extremely knowledgeable about her beautiful city and very passionate about what she does. She speaks, Italian, English, Spanish perfectly and even a little French. If you take the tour you won't be disappointed and if you have Eleonora as your guide, then sit back and relax for the perfect tour.

Excellent tours worth spending money on.
Good value for money...since we booked 2 tours, we had a discount and had a free florence afternoon walking tour and drink (though it had to be cancelled due to bad weather). They offered tours that matched our to-do-list whilst in Florence and we really enjoyed every bit of the tour. Group size was perfect, tour leaders were really helpful and friendly, tour guides in localities visited really explained well, time well spent and followed. Really recommend!
