    Giacomo was a very knowledgeable and energetic guide who brought the Duomo and the less appreciated Baptistery next door to life for me. Had a great time with him explaining more subtle details from the origins of the marble in the facade to the three virtues everywhere to the original doors in the museum… thank you Giacomo for doing justice to the work of the masters :)

    Only way to experience Duomo

    My wife and I recently had private tour of Duomo with a great guide Giacomo. He was incredibly knowledgeable and brought so much to the entire tour. Without the information Giacomo provided the experience would have lacked greatly. I kept hearing people ask each other “what is this?”, knowing that Giacomo had just explained it in depth to me made us super happy. Entirely seamless tour, no wait in lines and an amazing guide.

    Andrea Baldacci was outstanding

    What a wonderful experience, our tour guide Andrea Baldacci was truly excellent. He took us through The Baptistery of St. John first, the Cathedral and then the museum. It was a three-hour private tour that we didn't want to end. We learned so much, Andrea was kind and enthusiastic, engaging and spoke to each one of us answering our questions and teaching us so much about Florence and its history. His understanding of Florence's history was outstanding, an expert. Eleven stars out of 10. Thank you Andrea.
