Tour guide was great; however part of our group was late so we lost 20 min at the start of the tour. Then we waited 20-30 min in line for the church even with skip the line tickets, and finished 30 min before the time for the cathedral climb. So the actual tour of the academia was only 30 min, and more time would have been nice. The duomo climb was great , views incredible!

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Taking this tour allowed us to get much more out of the experience then I would have gotten otherwise and Freddy was able to point out many details and nuances I would have missed. We ended the tour climbing up the duomo and the bell tower and had some great views of Florence. Highly recommend this tour.

We were a group of 3 travelling in January 2020 and lucky enough to be the only ones on this tour. The bonus of travelling in winter and booking small group tours. Chiara was our guide for our tour. She was amazing. Full of stories and interesting facts. She even climbs the Dome with you and tells you about the stories depicted in the paintings.
