Reviews The Original David Tour Italy Accademia Tour Tripadvisor Reviews


"Walking Tours of Florence are wise and well informed. They have a fresh accessible style which makes it fun. The recipe seems to be the more you enjoy the more you learn. And it works."

“Dear Elisabeth,
Many thanks for your informative and insightful guidance during our visit to Accademia. I learned a lot about Michelangelo, and his beautiful sculpture of “David” that I noticed during earlier visits. Thank you so much."

“(The guide was) Very knowledgeable, interesting and enthuasiastic. Her brief histry of Michelangelo’s life and the description of the unfinished sculptures made the experience of seeing the David all the richer. Excellent tour – just the perfect amount of background and detail.”

“Delightful guide. She knew a lot of facts and interjected humour in with her comments. She was open to all our questions and was cheerful and friendly the whole tour.
We hit the highlights with all the information we needed to get a great overview of your fabulous city. Small groups meant that we had more access to the guide and didn’t have to wait for a lot of people. I will definitely recommend you to friends and internet sites.”

"Guide’s knowledge was amazing and she presented the information very logically and in a compelling way. I loved going by the Duomo first to get that perspective and building to David himself. Your tours are fantastic and the audio link really helps the experience – also thank you for restaurant recommendations! Really enjoyed the Zio Gigi restaurant – thank you! Will look forward to more of your offerings when I travel. I will book one of your tours in Venice and look forward to it. Thank you! Your reviews are well deserved!”

“Christine was knowledgeable, attentive to the group + very enthusiastic about the Piece. She brought the David to life + made the tour very worthwhile. This was a very worthwhile tour. One can easily see the beauty of the piece but the tour calls your attention to the details, artist and political situation. A class Act!”

“Fabulous – kept kids attention whole time – very informative and professional. We loved Tanya!”

Karen Autrey
The Original David Tour


“The two tours (Uffizi and Accademia) were well worth the cost. They provided enough depth to let me learn and see highlights in very large museums. Otherwise, it would have been truly exhausting and overwhelming as a first-time visitor. I would truly recommend your tour to others. Sylvia was our guide for both tours. She was outstanding. Very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. She made the art come alive and brought enough background of art history and knowledge of the artist to make it extremely fabulous!”
