This was a complete disappointment. The guide had no knowledge of Florence and everyone on the tour left before it was over. Also we were left deserted in Florence and the guide refused to help. She tried to take us as far as possible from the way back. The information she gave was factually wrong and she claimed we were wasting her time in wanting to see the Cathedral which we paid for. She also refused to show any art at the Accademia and claimed we were wasting her time. She took us to places and claimed they were of value but they were the wrong places. She went to the wrong side of the Church. The beautiful side was on the otherside and she didn't know anything about Florence. She also knew she was awful to us and kept asking us to say it was OK. We all ran from her and when we were alone had a lovely time. Except for the fear of trying to get back to the station as she gave wrong information would not help and tried to get us lost.
