This was an amazing tour. Led by Camilla, she was extremely knowledgeable. This ended up being a private tour so the four of us got a personalized tour with in-depth insights shared by our guide. Do note that the tour takes you to the Bapistery, Museum and the Cathedral. Our tour started around 9:15 and finished around noon so we ended getting a bit of extra time. The ascent to the Cupola is on your own and we had entrance tickets for 12:30p.m. So overall, the activity is 4+ hours, so keep that in mind.

Our tour guide was at the meeting point on time. He had our tickets to visit different parts of the complex and he reserved the time to climb the dome shortly after the end of our tour (the tour started at 9 am and the time to climb was 12:30). Our group was very small (5 people), so it was very easy to interact with our guide. We visited all the buildings. Our tour guide definitely loved Florence, and he explained the history of each of the buildings and pointed the most important works of art. It was a comprehensible tour at our pace - exactly the type of tour I like! Thank you very much for the wonderful experience!

Great guide. Easy to find. Would have missed so much if we had not had the guided tour of the baptistery.

Federica, the tour guide made this so enjoyable. The tour of the baptistry and external tour of the Duomo was very good but the museum tour surpassed even that.

Our guide was very knowledgeable. While in the cathedral, don’t forget to take the stairs to the underground area (not part of the guided tour). I found it fascinating to see what has been uncovered.

Tour guide was well-versed, easy to understand and suited tour to our pace. Lucky to have only a total of 6 people. She clearly explained how and when to access the Giotto Bell Tower. Can't think how it could have been improved. Thanks!

Our tour guide was phenomenal. She gave a very in depth and interesting tour with a lot of valuable insight that helped us enjoy our entire visit to Florence, not just the cathedral complex. We really enjoyed the small group tour, with just 4 people total include my husband and I. Overall, I will highly recommend this tour to friends and family. Please commend the tour guide, she was truly excellent. There was also a local representative who met us at the meeting point and was very friendly, warm and helped suggest nice places to eat during our visit.

We had a most pleasant afternoon visiting the Baptistery and the Duomo. Our guide (Maurizio) was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and provided very detailed explanations, as well as answering our questions in detail. It was a very worthwhile experience.

Meeting place was TERRIBLE;very difficult to find. The name of the bakery is frequently covered up by delivery trucks and when the name is covered by the umbrellas. It would be much better to arrange the meeting place for the column with the cross on top, that is located just next to the smallest building of the Duomo complex. The tour was a little too long and boring, but overall it was very good, and I would recommend to friends.
[Tickitaly responds: Thank you for your comments on the meeting place - we've tried to make that clearer.]

The tour could have been completed in less time. While it was very interesting, the pace was incredibly slow. The guide was however, very knowledgeable.

Where do these reviews come from?
About two weeks after you have used your tickets we send an email asking you for your feedback on tickitaly.com and on the individual attractions that you visited. We ask our customers to give us and our tickets a rating out of five stars and to write a short review - all of these reviews come from people that have bought tickets from us.
Why are there more stars awarded than reviews?
Many of our customers opt to award stars rather than write a review.
Why do some reviews have a ? instead of stars?
Some reviewers opt to write a comment but don't enter a star entry. These are sometimes positive and sometimes negative - we include these reviews in the listings after the starred reviews, but we don't include them in the overall ratings.
Where is my review? I can't see anything in the list?
Each review is checked by our staff in order to avoid posting inappropriate content or personal details, and to see if the customer has had a specific problem that needs to be addressed. In most cases these reviews go online with their star rating and any comment that has been made. In the cases that there is an issue that we have to address, such as refunds or specific complaints, we flag the review for response. In those few cases, any star rating is immediately taken into account in our ratings but the actual review is only posted once we have resolved the issue or had an opportunity to respond. Any editorial comment will be clearly highlighted like this: [Tickitaly responds: .....].
Are these reviews real or have you faked them?
All of the reviews and star ratings have come from people that have purchased tickets from us. We are very proud of the service and products that we provide, but obviously we aren't perfect and sometimes things go wrong. Once we have addressed any problems that a customer has had, we will process the original review (although we reserve the right to fix minor typos like ticketitaly).
If a review contains offensive language, abuse or personal insults, we'll publish the stars but omit the text.
