Our day was fantastic. The guide Emanuella was very knowledgeable and friendly, showing us around Florence and the Accademia Gallery. Raphael took us through Uffizi. Holy shit he had a ton of amazing, detailed information to share. It was fantastic. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to get a lot of Florence into a day.
Trato personalizado y excelente, nos ayudaron también enviándonos a alguien a la estación de Florencia para que nos acompañara al punto de encuentro. Guía estupendo, visita muy organizada para ver lo mejor de Florencia y sobre todo muy completa incluyendo Uffizi y la Academia. Preciosa ciudad que se disfruta muchísimo más con guías tan profesionales, los agentes locales Mytour merecen mucho la pena
