    Very detailed and informative tour with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide! Highly recommend the tour. Make sure you're well rested though as the tour is several hours and covers a lot!

    The price is too much for the galleries and you don’t get the time in return inside the galleries. Things were rushed and both the galleries were not shown properly. Accademia gallery was shown in English and Spanish language so it came out in a haphazard manner. I personally could have stood in the line and have spent the whole day in the two galleries. Accademia 12 euro ticket plus 10 euro audio guide could have been bought rather than spending so much amount of money with CiaoFlorence. Not a good experience at all!
