Giacomo was fantastic and had amazing knowledge of not only the Medici family, but also of art and other aspects of Florence and Renaissance history. He made several excellent recommendations for further excursions off the usual tourist lists and freely gave us some additional time when he saw our interest. He delivered all with a true passion and is a credit to his craft as a tour guide.

Really beautiful and engaging experience, our guide Ilaria spent more time than expected to tell us about the city and its history. Nice, clear, engaging and very well prepared. We will definitely do other tours! It deserves a lot to go beyond the surface of self-guided tours and really get to know the history and monuments.

Very pleasant tour, received a lot of info. Only downside: not clear on site that sights (eg cathedral and medical Chapels) were not included in Tour. We thought we were going to visit this and had to pay an entrance fee on the spot but this was not. Nice to take the tour during a stay in Florence.

Interesting.

I had problems with the app immediately solved by Francesco of Vox customer service. The guide provides some information of the monument but I expected more details. However, it was useful to orient myself as soon as I arrived.

Amazing tour!

My guide JULIA was incredible. She had such in depth art knowledge and was patient and we'll respected in the museum by staff. I highly recommend Julia!!
