Our tour guide, Leonardo, was a gem. He was personable, knowledgeable, and and all around great guy. We even bumped into his dad while walking through the city! Overall, we loved the tour and the tour guide and would recommend it to whoever wanted to visit the David.

We were NOT told we needed a proof of vaccine card to enter the museum. We traveled all the way to Florence from the USA and PAID for the tour in advance only to be denied entrance. We obviously were vaccinated and have the card. We needed the card to get into the country. I had a scanned code on my phone but it was not accepted. This is NOT the guides fault. I’m sure he did a very good job. This is the fault of the company for not putting the fact in writing before the tour.

Dear Delayne, I do understand you frustation about this but unfortunately in this pandemic situation in Italy is mandatory show vaccination proof o negative Covid-19 test made maximum 48h before. This is mandatory for any activities since begin of August 2021. It is written on our product page and I remembered you at the phone we we spoke. I am sorry that the museum won't let you in, but is a rule and we all have to follow it. As you guide told you on yesterday, we as agency will be more than happy to help you to reschedule your tour. Do not hesitate to contact us for any further needs or questions. Regards, Keys of Italy team

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY

DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY. They left us waiting in the hotel lobby for a tour operator that would not show up because they are not paying their guides. Use AIRBNB experiences for a much better time.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2019
Dear Kim thanks for taking the time to write this review. I believe you mistook our company Keys of Italy for some other tour operator. We have always paid our guides and they are very happy to work for us. Furthermore, we did not have any departing tours on the day you mentioned. We really don't understand the reason for this negative feedback, however, as customer satisfaction is our utmost priority, we would like to investigate this further. I would really appreciate if you could send an email to tours@keysofflorence.com with more details about your booking. Kind regards, Edoardo Pescucci Keys of Italy Tour Manager

New Appreciation for the Arts

Our guide, Francesca, was great. She was very informative and I learned how to distinguish between medieval, baroque and renaissance art. Of course, everyone is there to see The David. I have a much better appreciation for Michelangelo's masterpiece and art in general after the tour. Take the "skip-the-line" option. The lines are long as advertised.

Missed the tour
benn1126
, Oct 2019
We didn’t get to the tour until 3:12 for a scheduled 3:15 departure but our tour group had already left to go in. We were suppose to meet them at 3 but we got lost and didn’t judge correctly the amount of time it takes to get to the Accademia. My advice is don’t be late.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Dear benn126 thank you for taking the time to write this review. We investigated further into the matter, and both the guide and our booking officer who was at the check-in are sure the tour left right on time, at 3.15. As you pointed out, you were supposed to meet the group at 3pm, which means you were more than 15 minutes late for the tour. I am sure you understand we cannot be held responsible for this whatsoever, therefore think a 1-star review is very harsh for something over which we have no control, which is your punctuality and ability to follow instructions written on the voucher. I would be grateful if you could send me an email with more details about your bad experience at tours@keysofflorence.com and I remain at your disposal for any further clarification.

David is BREATHTAKING but I feel the tour was too expensive and too short
jonathane129
, Jul 2019
Don’t get me wrong, the skip the line part is great! But the tour was only an hour, not enough time to appreciate and learn about the other works in the gallery. But learning about David and the I Fish I’d works was WONDERFUL! Very interesting... But all of the sudden the tour was over mid way through her sentence (I don’t even remember her name)

Dear customer, Thank you for your feedback! We are really sorry that you couldn't full enjoy your visit at the Accademia. Concerning the time, in the description of the tour it is specified that its duration is 1 hour. We will be glad to see you soon in Florence again. Have a great day! Keys of Italy Team
