I learned so much on this tour. Lots of walking bring good shoes.
We learned so much about the rich history of Florence on this tour. It was split into two tours, with the morning beginning at the Accademia Gallery. The tour allowed us to skip the long lines so worth it and seeing David at the Accademia was amazing. We walked through Florence a bit and had a quick visit at the Duomo. The second tour was at the Uffizi Gallery and it was very helpful to have a guide highlight some of the special pieces and rooms. Glad that we were able to see the two galleries on a gorgeous day in Florence.
All locations easy to find as described on viator voucher. As described we were in a small group guided by a very instructive and knowledgable guide with communication through radio headsets which are a must in the busy areas visited. Both museum tours were very good taking you through the main highlights along with very good background supplied by the guide Alessia. There was also a short walking tour from Academia in to the city centre on the morning tour. I found that the background provided by the guide enhanced my experience of the museums in particular. Being part of the tour also meant no long queues to negotiate. Afternoon tour left you to carry on your visit to the Uffizi if required. In short good targeted and instructive visits to 2 of the main museums in the city along with general background to other tourist sites along the way.

I highly recommend the Florence Walking Tour w/visits to the Accademia and Uffizi. Yes, you really do skip the lines and you head to all the right places the Uffizi has 100 rooms, so this helps! Our guide, Emily was phenomenal! She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, personable and above all passionate about the city and artwork. This showed as she guided us throughout the day. Thank you Emily for a fantastic and very memorable day.
I enjoyed 'The David' and Beatrice's enthusiasm towards all things Michelangelo! Equally Ciara was great taking us around the Uffizi in the afternoon.Both were very knowledgeable and keen guides who gave us a real feel for Florence and its masterpieces.
Accademia and David was amazing! The tour of Florence was fun and exciting . The guide kept us interested on the walking tour. The Uffizi gallery was good but i do not recommend two tours in one day , very exhausting.
Excellent experience capturing the highlights of the historic center of Florence and skipping the long queues. Both our guides, Angelo and Paul, were very knowledgeable and engaging taking into account the group's needs and background.
We had the best time on our tour of the Accademia and Ancient Florence! Our tour guide was very animated and colorful! He brought history to life in his telling of Michelangelo and Ancient Florence. I forgot his name, but I do remember he said he was part Italian and part Australian and had grown up in Australia.
Our tour guide for the Uffizi gallery was also entertaining and knowledgable about the art and artists we saw. One word of warning, DO NOT TAKE THE STAIRS! Use the elevator or your legs will be talking to you normally, I could handle a few flights of stairs, but the stairs in the Uffizi are no joke!

This tour is well with every dollar spent. The only way to come close to well preserved historic gems and enjoy the I magnificence personally. Had a excellent and very knowledgable tour guide that shares so much - something that will take you years to read in books was shared a couple of hours!
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!
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.
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.
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.
