Ismael was awesome! I had done research from home and almost booked with a different company, I am so glad I took my time a found Walks. The evening tour at Accademia was really amazing, there were very few people and Ismael made it a great time, he was very knowledgeable and it was fun, I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you.

The tour was good and Greta was a great guild but the "after hours" part was a bit misleading. It seems that the museum was still open late on Thursday and we could have purchased a ticket on our own which would hav been much cheaper (our fault for not looking into it a bit more). This is one museum that can easily be done by yourself. We use Walks of Italy 3 times and overall were very happy with them.
The tour was great! I really liked that it was not too long, but covered many interesting topics.
Thank you so much we had two tours with your company in Florence and three in Rome. All of them where terrific. You are doing a great job of finding great tour guides and the size of the tours are prefect. Thanks for making a wonderful time of our trip to Italy.
We enjoyed it very much.

We loved our tour! The evening was the absolute best time to see David. Our guide was extremely informative and knowledgeable.
Angelo was great! Really entertaining and tied it all together. Context and perspective is most important in fully appreciating art. My family really got a lot out of the experience. Thx
My only wish was that it had been longer! The guide was great, and we appreciated the after-hours calm.
