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.

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.

Excellent

We were a group of four and had a tour with Guide Rossella Caggese. She was so knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions we had, even those out side the Medici Family!!! Her English was excellent. She also recommended a wonderful place to eat when we were done. It was HOT, bring a hat, good walking shoes, and water!!!
