Bennie, our tour guide, was punctual, professional, and knowledgeable. After meeting, we walked through the Duomo museum to learn about the construction and history. The skip-the-line allowed us to walk through the cathedral before ascending to the top of the dome. It was a workout but everyone made it (ages 20-75). Highly Recommend.

We did this tour and the Florence City Bike tour with Andrea as our guide. He was EXCELLENT - very engaging and a great story teller. We had been to Florence before, but it was wonderful to tour the city with a local.

The group sizes were reasonable - enough that you nobody was falling behind and all questions anyone had were answered by Andrea.

I highly recommend both tours and the skip the line feature made a big difference when visiting Florence in the summer!

We have now done 3 tours with Fat Tire Tours and we look forward to touring with them again in the future.

From start to finish this was a fantastic experience. There were just 5 of us, which made it even better in my opinion. Our guide Andres was simply wonderful. His knowledge, friendliness, sense of humor, and overall fantastic personality added so much value to the afternoon. We explored the museum before entering the cathedral, once inside we bypassed everyone and received wonderful special attention from staff. The climb itself and everything we learned along the way was brilliant, and enriching. The skywalk was breathtaking, but the view from the very top is awe inspiring. I can not recommend this tour highly enough!! This was one of the highlights of my visit to Firenze!!!

Truly a memorable experience. A knowledgeable guide - Francesca ( sorry if I got this wrong) took us on a renaissance history lesson through the excellent museum, the baptistery and up the dome stairs. We had a delightful and informative commentary in lovely accented English. Not to be missed. Worth every cent.

When I first booked this I thought it was quite expensive but you absolutely get what you pay for. Bernadetta, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and made the experience so much more interesting than if we’d just climbed the dome on our own. 100% recommend this tour.

Fantastic experience. We learned a lot about Florence and the Duomo. The climb wasn’t too difficult and the view was certainly worth it. If you are afraid of heights and/or claustrophobic this maybe isn’t the tour for you. We were a few minutes late due to a train snafu, but were still able to meet the group. The tour guide was very accommodating and we were very grateful.

This is the 4th tour we've done since we've been in Italy and Vanessa was our favorite - even our teens loved it. Other tours we took were very dry and info heavy but she made it interesting for all of us. The view from the climb was spectacular but be sure to take some water, you have to wear a mask and your mouth will get very dry on the climb.

This tour was amazing! Not only is the Duomo a fantastic experience, the climb to the top of the Dome provided a fabulous view of the entire city. The climb is quite a hike but the pace is slow so is manageable. We also stopped at about half way so that gave us a breather. Being at the top is worth the climb! The tour guide was fun, interesting and knowledgeable.

Was looking forward to this experience during my time in Florence. Has been lovely looking up at the grand Cathedral, but quite something else to stand at its highest point and look out upon it and the city. Highly recommend for anyone who loves the iconic Duomo, and doesnt suffer from fear of heights or close spaces.

Thank you Jess It's impossible to exaggerate how impressive the view from the top of the Duomo is - especially getting up there with one of our fantastic guides

This was a great tour. Our guide Vanessa was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The Duomo is definitely worth seeing with or without the climb but seeing it from the top inside and then the view of Florence from the very top outside is breath taking. The climb - almost 500 steps - is not that difficult. My husband and I, both in our 60’s and only moderately fit, were able to do it without any issues. The circular stairwell is tight and not well lit but reasonably well ventilated. We stopped a few times on the way up which made it manageable. Once on the uppermost ledge outside you can see in all directions and our guide had more interesting information for us. We loved this!
