Learn Medici history!
Odette_T, Dec 2022
This tour was informative and interesting! It helped that our tour guide is the “last Medici” and is a history teacher gallivanting around telling us stories of the times.

Great Walking tour of Florence
Phil_B, Jun 2022
We had a great time, Marcelo was informative, funny and endearing. He shared so much knowledge with us and the pace was good. After visiting Florence before, there were so many buildings we passed and never knew anything about them, and now we do. My only wish was that I did this on day one and not our last day, because he gave so many other places to explore. Highly recommended!
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Dear P. thank you for your review. Your opinion is always very important. We are glad you enjoyed our tour and our guide Marcello😊 We hope to see you in the future for new experiences! Kind regards Accord Team

A splendid De Medici-tour through Firenze
Sabine_DF, Aug 2021
Our tour was beyond any expectation! We had a fantastic guide, Lisa, and we were, moreover, very lucky because no one else had signed in for this tour, so we got a private tour! Lisa walked with us from Piazza San Marco to the Palacio Pitti and built hence in a very structured and clear way the story of the Medici family. For every question we had, she had a clear answer. She talked very well English and was always concerned about our well being (shade/sun!) and our well understanding of her story. Just wonderful! For more than two hours we were under the spell of the Medici family and Lisa! She was splendid from the first till the last minute! As a teacher of guides and tour leaders, I can say that she would graduate in our guides training cum laude! Congratulations, Lisa, you're doing perfectly!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you so much for your kind words. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. The Medici walking tour is a wonderful way to get to know the most important ruling family of Florence and we are very happy that you enjoyed it. We will inform Lisa of your feedback - we're sure she'll apprecciate. We look forward to meeting you again in the future!
