Kiara was our tour guide. She was knowledgeable as well as friendly and charismatic. Sometimes you get a tour guide that knows a lot but is boring as heck....This was not Kiara. She was delightful. She knew so much about the area, the art, the history and the buildings. I honestly am NOT an art person. I went on this tour because my husband drug me along. I found myself really enjoying it and I am so glad he insisted we go.

Could not find them in designated meeting point!

We scheduled a Uffizi, David and walking tour, we were at the location and there was no tour guide there. We attempted to reach Viator for 30 minutes with no way to reach them. We have requested a full refund and will update this review with the results. i am very concerned that I am out the approx 250 Euros! Not cheap!

Dear Cristina_M, We are terribly sorry you missed our service, as we can only imagine the disappointment! However, we did run the tour on the day of your service, so we are not sure why you were not able to find us. Could you have gone straight to the Academia rather than our meeting point? That unfortunately happens pretty oftne, our guests assume we meet in front of the site rather than our meeting point, which is always close by but in a quieter spot where we are more visible. We are terribly sorry if this happened to you, and would appreciate receiving more information, so please feel free to reach out to us at feedback@walks.org with any further information you may have. Looking forward to hearing form you. Kind regards,

Pia was great and very knowledgeable. We started at the Accademia Gallery with skip the line entry, so we were able to avoid the long lines and caught the highlights - eg David. We then walked through Florence where Pia provided a lot of great history and background of the various buildings and ended at the Bridge for lunch on our own. We then continued with skip the line entry to the Uffizi and a great tour of the masterpieces before she left us on our own to tour the rest of the museum. Would definitely do it again and highly recommend Pia.

RELAXED TOUR, DEFINITELY YOUR $$$ WORTH

Elana was our Art Historian. She made Michelangelo and the Renaissance painters come alive. I especially liked that she discussed getting at the soul of a block of marble and of the canvas, not just a chisel to stone or a brush to canvas. VERY knowledgeable and friendly, those who dont know much about Art will feel comfortable

Tour guide was excellent and we enjoyed the tour but was not happy that we did not go into the Duomo and was not made aware of that until we got to the Duomo. The Duomo was one of the key things we wanted to visit in Florence.

Hello juanrapozo, Thank you for your feedback from your recent Florence Day, we appreciate that you took the time to share your thoughts with us. It is fantastic that you enjoyed our tour and thought that our tour guide is excellent, that is music to our ears! This experience does not include entrance tickets into the Duomo as our guides discuss it from the outside, but I can completely understand if you were disappointed by not entering it. We state in the description of this tour that we pass by the Duomo, but we will take your feedback on board and see if we can improve this description for future guests. We hope to see you on another walking tour very soon, as we would love to really wow you next time! Warmest regards, The Walks Team

We had a great tour of Florence with stops inside the Academia Gallery to see the exhibits including Michaelangelo's David. We also had a great tour inside the Uffizi Gallery and walked the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Our guide provided great information which made us comfortable to explore Florence on our own after the tour.

Our tour guide, Matt, was extremely knowledgeable about Firenze’s history, buildings & art, both sculpture & painting. He was very pleasant & led at a good pace keeping the group together well - not easy in a crowded city. An extremely worthwhile tour.
