This tour was great! We saw the major monuments and had a chance to go into both Galleries in one day.
This was the perfect tour with very knowledgeable guides. We didn't spend any time in lines and our guides expertly guided us through city streets and the two museums with wonderfully detailed explanations.
The tour was just what we were looking for, although the lines where a bit long because there were a lot of tour groups entering the museums. However, while we were waiting, the tour guides provided historical content, they were quite knowledgeable. I suggest to anyone going to Florence, get there early so that you can find parking and get to your meeting point on time.
Terrific tour! Both guides were excellent. Made the visits to these outstanding attractions trul memorabl.

Tour was excellent and our guides were friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. Loved the individual headsets and a great size for the group. Definitely recommend this tour if you're looking for the highlights during your visit and a great pair of tours. The break in the middle to have lunch was a perfect length of time to grab a sit down mean and wander in the market for a bit too. Definitely recommend this.
Frederika was our tour guide for the morning tour of Accademia and Florence highlights. She was FABULOUS - - so well informed, engaging and warm. Patricia was our tour guide for the afternoon tour of the Uffizi again - - Fabulous - - really knowledgeable and engaging. Both went out of their way to make sure everyone was accounted for at all times and that we were all getting our questions answered. The groups were about 20 people each which was fine - - after the tour guides, the headphones were the other key factor in making this such a worthwhile tour. You didn't miss anything that was said and could wander around within reason and still hear the narrative. This tour was without a doubt and ESSENTIAL component of why our trip to Florence was so rewarding.
This is a good option for seeing many of the sights of Florence in one day, avoiding the long lines.
As it happened, I wasn't able to make the morning portion but did join the afternoon group for the Uffizi. The guide, Paulo, I think I recall, was highly knowledgeable of the development of Italian art and what informed the evolution in subjects and techniques of the succession of artists, sharing fascinating insights on pieces which set new directions in art, and all in a thoroughly delightful way with infectious enthusiasm.
Excellent way to see the best of Florence. Guide was very informative. We had time on our own at the Uffizi once the tour was over which allowed us to go back and view the highlights and take pictures. Highly recommended especially if you don and #39;t have a lot of time in Florence.
These were great excursions and very enjoyable. The guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. A word to the wise on the Uffizzi: bathrooms are very scarce!
If you have only one day to spend in Florence, this is the way to do it. I now know you can't really take in all the sights and culture in one day so you need help in sifting through the important highlights. Both our guides were very professional and personable. Their knowledge of the history and art was deep. I know we saw the tip of the iceberg at Uffizi and simply have to come back for more.
Showed us the David, saw the highlights of the Uffizi, Duomo, and the city itself with recommendations for food and Gelato. Very knowledgeable guides! I will say, this does not include climbing the Duomo tower.
Best experience ever thanks to our guide Paul Costa! If you book, make sure to ask for him!
We booked this tour on-line and was impressed at the delivery. It is as good as advertised. Meeting point was at a well-recognized public place. The tour organisers were efficient and punctual. There were 24 of us. Angelo, our guide for the morning session, was instantly liked by all with his fascinating tales of Florentine history, his familiarity with local landmarks both major and minor, and his visible passion for the city. Angelo's narration was free-flowing, engaging and continuous -- a veritable encyclopedia of Florence. I hope Viator is able to retain guides like him. The afternoon session at the Uffizi was with Federico, who also gave us an impressive guide through the Museum.
This tour was amazing.Our guide was fabulous,lots of great information and a beautiful city to enjoy. Very comprehensive, Very much recommended! The history and art was truly breathtaking.
Wow, the tours were amazing! Both tour guides were excellent. They knew the subjects well and made the tours both very educational and entertaining. Without taking the tours, there is so much that would have been missed. I highly recommend Viator.
My friend and I loved this tour. My favorite part was the Uffizi Gallery and the statue of David. It is truly a must see. I would highly recommend this tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable.
Fredricka was AMAZING! She was so knowledgeable and very friendly. I love the City Wonders tour group and would highly recommend this tour to ANYONE.
Our morning guide, Chiara couldn't have been more knowledgeable on the first part of the tour through the Accademia and walking through the city. She was very engaging and had great knowledge of Florence. Our guide through the Uffizi was phenomenal. His knowledge and love of art made you see each work as a story as opposed to just a painting or statue. He encouraged the group to ask questions and make comments to make it a great experience and a great experience it was. I would highly recommend both parts of the tour.
Very friendly and informative guides. Showed a genuine passion and love for the city, combined with a great sense of humour and knowledge of their subjects. Really worthwhile. Would do it again!
