The best tour ever! Manuel was a very nice Guide, who had a lot of Knowledge! The licensed guide, Manuele, knew the city very well and told us a lot of interesting facts and history hidden in the city! He even gave us a list of things to see and do in the city apart from the tour! I can 100% recommended this tour!

Tour was great and guide was very knowledgeable as most are. But, like all of my tours with GYG in Italy (3 in total) the directions to the GYG office are terrible and very hard to find. If you use GYG, you must give yourself a lot of time to plan on getting lost.

Camilla was a wonderful guide

Excellent tour. A bit hard to figure out the place to meet but we managed. Our guide, Camilla was fantastic. Worth the climb and money for the experience and view.

Very great tour with our guide named “Analisa”. But there were too many steps to reach the dome. Splendid panorama of florence.
