Great
This is a wonderful tour, but if you are in your 80s, it is a bit too much walking up and down stairs.

I had a Florence in a day tour with my girlfriend. We showed up to the meeting point 3 minutes late and absolutely no sign of the tour group anywhere. I gave the group benefit of the benefit of the doubt as some tours state a meeting time but actually start 15-30 min after. 15 minutes post meeting time, I decided to call the Walks and Devour tour office and they had told me the tour group had left, with them waiting 10 minutes max. That was impossible since my girlfriend and I were frantically pacing around the meeting point with no green flag in site. They told me to meet them outside the Galleria Academia as the group had an assigned time there and that I would just be missing that first portion of the tour. I waited for two hours there with my girlfriend asking every tour group with Walks of Italy stickers if they were my group, to no avail. I called back and the office offered me to reschedule the next day, at the expense of $35 per person said they couldnt do anything about the rescheduling fee since I called outside the 10 minute grace period. There were also numerous times lots available later that day but for only one spot - to which, they could not accommodate an additional person. I was able to squeeze the tour in first thing in the morning the next day. Turns out, we got there well ahead of schedule, found the tour guide, checked in, and saw the tour group actually left 15 min prior to the tour time. They had a check list of all the people in the group - didnt bother to call missing tourists. I wasted a lot of time in Florence scared my vacation would be wasted time. Please book with a different company. Ive done many tour groups and none have ever left with an incomplete group without checking in with them - Walks and Devour tours will!

Our tours run rain or shine so please dress for the elements. We also ask you to please remember hats and sunscreen if you are taking this tour in the summer as it might be very hot.
Do I get to enter the Duomo on this tour?
