Despite the tour operator suffering a tour guide going ill mid-tour they still managed to resolve the problem and provide a tour to all customers by combining groups (resulting groups were still small enough to enjoy the experience). The owner of the company helped by resolving the problem of access to the Duomo and Baptistry for all visitors and this showed that they care about their customers and can be trusted to try their best to resolve any problems. Highly recommended as a service provider.

A very complete visit, I recommend it. Julia, our guide, was very nice, attentive to the group and magnificent in terms of knowledge about Florence and its cathedral complex. It is wise to hire the tour that leaves you satisfied and feeling that you have taken advantage of the time.
