DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY

DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY. They left us waiting in the hotel lobby for a tour operator that would not show up because they are not paying their guides. Use AIRBNB experiences for a much better time.

Dear Kim thanks for taking the time to write this review. I believe you mistook our company Keys of Italy for some other tour operator. We have always paid our guides and they are very happy to work for us. Furthermore, we did not have any departing tours on the day you mentioned. We really don't understand the reason for this negative feedback, however, as customer satisfaction is our utmost priority, we would like to investigate this further. I would really appreciate if you could send an email to tours@keysofflorence.com with more details about your booking. Kind regards, Edoardo Pescucci Keys of Italy Tour Manager

New Appreciation for the Arts

Our guide, Francesca, was great. She was very informative and I learned how to distinguish between medieval, baroque and renaissance art. Of course, everyone is there to see The David. I have a much better appreciation for Michelangelo's masterpiece and art in general after the tour. Take the "skip-the-line" option. The lines are long as advertised.

Missed the tour

We didn’t get to the tour until 3:12 for a scheduled 3:15 departure but our tour group had already left to go in. We were suppose to meet them at 3 but we got lost and didn’t judge correctly the amount of time it takes to get to the Accademia. My advice is don’t be late.

Dear benn126 thank you for taking the time to write this review. We investigated further into the matter, and both the guide and our booking officer who was at the check-in are sure the tour left right on time, at 3.15. As you pointed out, you were supposed to meet the group at 3pm, which means you were more than 15 minutes late for the tour. I am sure you understand we cannot be held responsible for this whatsoever, therefore think a 1-star review is very harsh for something over which we have no control, which is your punctuality and ability to follow instructions written on the voucher. I would be grateful if you could send me an email with more details about your bad experience at tours@keysofflorence.com and I remain at your disposal for any further clarification.

David is BREATHTAKING but I feel the tour was too expensive and too short

Don’t get me wrong, the skip the line part is great! But the tour was only an hour, not enough time to appreciate and learn about the other works in the gallery. But learning about David and the I Fish I’d works was WONDERFUL! Very interesting... But all of the sudden the tour was over mid way through her sentence (I don’t even remember her name)

Our guide Annette was simply amazing. Her knowledge and enthusiasm were contagious. Even my daughters with little art interest (who were not looking forward to the tour initially) rated this excursion one of the highlights of our 10 day trip. It was such a huge advantage to skip the lines and be directed smoothly through security and into the museum. Annette was so engaging and even helped us fund a cab at the end of our Accademia tour. Lovely and organized experience. Highly recommend !!

Seeing The David was in of itself, amazing but we had a fantastic guide that made the experience even more memorable. Leonardo was full of information both about the exhibit and Florence in general. Highly recommend.

The exhibition was really fascinating and informative, description of musical instruments and of David showed great insight and knowledge. The only thing is would have to say negatively is the cost was really high.
