We enjoyed the tour of both the Accademia and Uffizi Gallery. Well worth visiting with beautiful artwork that we all enjoyed.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. She taught us so much about the amazing art and sculptures that we saw. She definitely enhanced our experience, we would have been lost without her. We highly recommend this tour. Thank You!

We only had one day to spend in Florence unfortunately... but this tour of the iconic works of art in the Academia and Uffizi Gallery helped us make the most of our time in the city. We bought the lunch option and the restaurant was excellent, adjacent to the city's majestic St. Mary's Cathedral. We had about 2 hours between the morning and afternoon tours, so we took in the Cathedral... an amazing experience.

It’s definitely worth taking the Skip the Line tour of Florence’s Accademia and Uffizi Gallery’s. You will see the highlights of the museums with the guides’ thorough and knowledgeable description. There is time for both photos and contemplation when you view Michaelango’s masterpiece, David. Browsing the museums on your own after the end of the tour is an option in both museums.

the tours were great, very informative people. we started our tour of the uffizi gallery late so we didn't get to see all of it. but our tour guilds knowledge of art was from schooling and passion. I wish we could have had more time with her. The tour guild at the Accademia showed a love of art not just a job but a passion

This was a fantastic tour-- very well organized, and I loved having headsets for the noisy rooms we were in. I have nothing but kind words for our tour guide, Titziana, as well. She was clearly deeply knowledgable about all of the art we were seeing and of their history and the characters behind them. Her expertise truly showed and made me (a previously non art-lover) super excited about the works we saw. Highly recommend going on this tour if all the other guides are as good!

Wonderful tour! The guides were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject matter. They made sure everyone's audio equipment was working. I learned so much more with the guided tour than I would have on my own. Worth it!

Guide was well versed and able to answer any and all questions posed by the group members. Radio worked well and even though the attractions were crowded - our tour group managed to have time to see the art and linger if we wanted. Very well coordinated tour.

Fantastic! The tour guides were absolutely splendid and super knowledgeable. The lunch in-between was pretty darn good too! Generous portions, good quality, and nice wine! I would absolutely do this again. I just wish I knew that I could have brought my larger, better camera into the Accademia. That David is unreal!!!

If you want to see Florence and only there for a few days. Skip the line with this tour. Very informative and it shortens your wait so you have time to do things on your own later. Long day only b/c its seperated for lunch. You can opt for the paid lunch in the tour or do it on your own. Easy to find the meeting point. Don't be intimidated by all the people. Find your group and it will work out and be worth your time and money invested.

Our guide for the Accadamia was very knowledgeable on the museum. His detailed descriptions especially of the statue of David was much appreciated. He presentation of the info was vast and easy to understand. The Uffizi gallery was spectacular with the Bottecelli and DaVinci works.

Thoughly enjoyable. We took this tour as it was our 1st visit to Florence and needed an introduction to both the Accademia and Uffizi. The Accademia is the smaller of the two but contains Michelangelo's David. The Uffiz is huge and you only get chance to see the highlights. You'll need to revisit.

I enjoyed this tour a lot! You learn a lot about the artwork and the statue of David. Our tour guide was Larisa, she was fantastic! She was funny and made you want to listen to her talk forever. I had a total crush on her, shes a lot of fun.

Our guides were both knowledgeable. We could always hear them well and enjoyed the insight they offered into the art. It was also nice having lunch included. It wasn't anything fancy, but the food was good and it was one less thing to worry about!
