The guides did an amazing job hitting the highlights of both museums and gave us the history and biography of the artists as well. The break in between allowed us some time to take in the area between the museums as well as the piazza with the statues outdoors. Very glad we took this tour!

Our tour guide for both the Accademia and Uffizi Gallery were amazing and really knowledgeable about everything we saw.

Our first guide was very knowledgeable and explained what led up to the David. The guide at the Uffizi was superior. She was helpful with directions and gave great detail on the art that we wouldn’t necessarily see

Both of our tour guides were fabulous and really knew the history of the art. The Uffizi is very large and our tour guide there did a great job of pointing out the really important works. Really like having the break between the two galleries and we used that time to walk around Florence including the Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and the Piazza della Signoria.

The tour guides were outstanding. There was some organizational difficulty at The Uffizi but the tour guides worked it out and we had an excellent tour.

Loved the tour of both of these and pleased we booked the skip the line because the queue is massive for these attractions. Both guides were informative and passionate about the art and gave a good background history for total novices like us.

Our tour guide Debora was extremely knowledgable! The fact that she was an art historian helped her to give us great insight into the paintings and sculptures as we talked about them. The little known details were extremely interesting. This was a great tour and one I would recommend to everyone!

I recommend these tours, partly just for the ability to skip the regular lines, which were huge, and the weather was scorching hot 37 (Celsius, 98 Fahrenheit). Getting into the Uffizi was especially fast. Seeing the sculptures of David and of the Rape of the Sabines makes the Accademia tour well worth it. At the same time, the Uffizi is overall far superior in the number of deservedly famous works.

I want to start with Accademia. Was a great tour seeing David up close and personal. First there is no skip the line. There is a shorter line for group reservations that will get you in on the time mentioned. Only take a bottle of water (16 oz) with you. Our guide Rubina was excellent. Uffizzi is enormous. You will be exhausted during the afternoon. A lot of walking. Our guide Andrea took toooooo much time at the beginning and many of us (around 8) participants were forced to leave the group because of other tours. Overall, good choice to jam two important museums in one day.

My wife and I spent 24 hours in Florence on our way for a weeks break in Siena. We’ve used Viator many times before and they’ve always provided a great service so we decided to maximise our relatively short time in the city by booking the Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery tour. As usual, the tours and the guides were excellent and we’d particularly like to mention Antonio who led us on the Accademia tour. Antonio is clearly a very proud and passionate Italian whose knowledge, story telling and sense of humour are exceptional. We had a great time and learned a lot - Thank you.

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!

Excellent and amazing tour of both Galleries. Our guide was so knowledgeable. We really enjoyed this tour!

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

Great tours, paying a little extra for skip the line is a no brainer. Our tour guides were great

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. So worth it. It was simply amazing. Highly recommended!!!!

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!
• Submitted 15 Jul 2018
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!!!
