We were visiting Florence for one week. City Florence Tours organized for us the tour of the importent places. And Marco and Giacomo did it with perfection. Marco is a very reliable and helpful organizer and Giacomo a highly knowlageable guide, who explains the many subjects with passion and is never dull.

Finally we got a chance to see the David. We had a semi private tour that turned out to be private. Our guide, Galya, was very knowledgeable and had a good feeling what we wanted to hear and learn. I very much recommend it I take this tour since it will be a very different experience to just showing up and looking at a statue.

We booked a guided tour of David and the Accademia on our first day in Florence and it was wonderful. Alessandra with City Florence Tours was our guide and she was very knowledgeable. She walked our family through some historical parts of Florence and then through the Accademia. Our teenage girls throughly enjoyed their time with Alessandra.

Very simple to meet up with our guide Frederica (I believe that was her name, aka "Freddy") and stroll through the streets of Firenze and on to see David. All was handled professionally, thoroughly, and pleasurably. Highly recommend City Florence Tours!
