Do better in the future.
Steve_B, Sep 2023
Guide seemed a bit new at this. Hard to follow, with her words, and physically; keeping up in a crowd.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing ACCORD for your experience in Florence and for taking the time to write us this review! We are sorry to learn that our guide was unable to make you feel comfortable by fully adapting to your pace. Finding a balance between wanting to show our guests as many points of interest as possible and time constraints is a constant concern for us, and for that reason we appreciate your feedback. We are committed to reevaluating the itinerary and promise that your next ACCORD experience will not disappoint! Sincerely, The ACCORD Team
It was a total bust.
Randy_M, Sep 2023
Unfortunately I couldn’t understand what she was saying. Her accent was so strong that I could have enjoyed on my own better. She told another 4 people who were from Brazil and she said she didn’t have enough ear pieces. Then she never gave out ear pieces. My wife knows Spanish and was able to communicate some with her. It was a total bust. This is our 6th-7th tour in Italy so we’re not inexperienced.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Dear Customer, We are sorry to hear that you were not able to enjoy the experience. It is unusual that you couldn't follow our guide's voice, as she is a native English speaker and holds a license issued by the municipality of Florence, with many years of experience. We wonder if, when our guide switched languages, she first asked for the consent of all tour participants, and if you mentioned that it would be a problem for you. Did you try asking for the earpieces again? We are surprised by this information since our guides always strive to find the best solution for all tour participants. We regret that we couldn't make your visit more enjoyable. We are available for any further information or clarification. Best regards, The ACCORD Team

Sejal_S, Jul 2023
The tour guide was nice but we couldn’t understand her at all due to thick accent. In addition, we lost her 4 times in 2 hrs :( She never looked for her group and keeps walking like she’s in her own world
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Dear Sejal Shan, First of all, thank you for the time you dedicated to us with this review, as it helps us verify the quality of the service we provide. We have looked into who the guide was that accompanied you, and I can agree with you that they are a very kind and knowledgeable person. We are sorry to hear that you couldn't fully enjoy their valuable input as I can assure you that your guide is also an English language teacher and translator. We also apologize for the difficulty you experienced in keeping up during the tour. We take most of the responsibility for this, as in our efforts to offer the most comprehensive, complete, and unique experience, we try to include as many attractions as possible in the tour, which may sometimes push our guides to keep up with the time constraints. Once again, thank you for your review, and we look forward to welcoming you again for some delightful experiences. In light of what has been said, I hope you could kindly reconsider your review and add a few more stars. Best regards, ACCORD Team

It was.very difficult to understand because.of his heavy accent but he was very nice and informative.
Enjoyable experience
Gmerice_W, May 2023
I really enjoyed this tour but I’m giving it four stars because the itinerary for the tour has changed and the description hasn’t been updated. There were a few stops that are no longer included in the tour, including the stop for gelato. Once the tour guide announced the tour was ending, I asked about the stop for gelato and she told me that was removed from the tour.
Must do tour
Julie_C, May 2023
A great way to explore Florence! Our guide Isabella was very knowledgeable on the history of Florence and the monuments along the walk. We’ll worth the taking the tour if you are short on time and/or understanding the layout of the old town.
Very impressive buldings...
Rick_S, May 2023
Very impressive buldings and bridge crossing. Tour guide very knowledgeable, however a little too much info for me.
A very enjoyable tour

Natalia was a wonderful guide. She brought the city to life with stories of the history of Florence. She gave us lots of information about the places we should visit, and some suggestions about shopping and dining.

Florence for beginners
Justine_P, Jul 2019
We enjoyed the tour but didn't feel we learned enough and the IT didn't work very well. A more leisurely pace with more general information about Florence would certainly have made the tour better for us.
Pleasant guide
Marko_S, May 2019
Very pleasant guide tour. Time is passing quick, so should be a bit longer tour. However very satisfied with Firenza. Hope will come again.

Riyana K, Aug 2016
Tour guide was super friendly. Very informative and thorough. Her English we very understandable. We saw amazing things in Florence but most importantly enjoyed walking through the lesser used side alleys that open up to more amazing monuments. Highly recommended if you have good shoes and 2.5 hours :P Our tour ended on opposite direction of where it started. However it is so hard to get lost in the city center. Just use the Duomo Cathedral as a landmark and it is easy to navigate We all got free Gelato at the end.
Not as good as our Rome day tour...

Not as good as our Rome day tour. Could not hear the guide, her English was OK but not great and she did not explain things in a way that was easy to understand

This was a good way to start our trip to Florence. It got us well oriented, and didn't overwhelm us with information. Our guide didn't seem very interested, however.
