Our tour guide, Leonardo,...

Our tour guide, Leonardo, was a gem. He was personable, knowledgeable, and and all around great guy. We even bumped into his dad while walking through the city! Overall, we loved the tour and the tour guide and would recommend it to whoever wanted to visit the David.

Francesca M was great! She was right on time and where the company said she would meet us. She was very knowledgeable without being overwhelming. I would 100% do the tour with her again!

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY

DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY. They left us waiting in the hotel lobby for a tour operator that would not show up because they are not paying their guides. Use AIRBNB experiences for a much better time.

Dear Kim thanks for taking the time to write this review. I believe you mistook our company Keys of Italy for some other tour operator. We have always paid our guides and they are very happy to work for us. Furthermore, we did not have any departing tours on the day you mentioned. We really don't understand the reason for this negative feedback, however, as customer satisfaction is our utmost priority, we would like to investigate this further. I would really appreciate if you could send an email to tours@keysofflorence.com with more details about your booking. Kind regards, Edoardo Pescucci Keys of Italy Tour Manager

New Appreciation for the Arts

Our guide, Francesca, was great. She was very informative and I learned how to distinguish between medieval, baroque and renaissance art. Of course, everyone is there to see The David. I have a much better appreciation for Michelangelo's masterpiece and art in general after the tour. Take the "skip-the-line" option. The lines are long as advertised.

David is BREATHTAKING but I feel the tour was too expensive and too short
jonathane129
, Jul 2019
Don’t get me wrong, the skip the line part is great! But the tour was only an hour, not enough time to appreciate and learn about the other works in the gallery. But learning about David and the I Fish I’d works was WONDERFUL! Very interesting... But all of the sudden the tour was over mid way through her sentence (I don’t even remember her name)

Dear customer, Thank you for your feedback! We are really sorry that you couldn't full enjoy your visit at the Accademia. Concerning the time, in the description of the tour it is specified that its duration is 1 hour. We will be glad to see you soon in Florence again. Have a great day! Keys of Italy Team

Our guide Annette was simply amazing. Her knowledge and enthusiasm were contagious. Even my daughters with little art interest (who were not looking forward to the tour initially) rated this excursion one of the highlights of our 10 day trip. It was such a huge advantage to skip the lines and be directed smoothly through security and into the museum. Annette was so engaging and even helped us fund a cab at the end of our Accademia tour. Lovely and organized experience. Highly recommend !!

Seeing The David was in of itself, amazing but we had a fantastic guide that made the experience even more memorable. Leonardo was full of information both about the exhibit and Florence in general. Highly recommend.
