Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Skip the Line: Florence Accademia Gallery Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We arrived for our tour and found our tour guide without too much issue. The Gallery was extremely busy and the non-group line was over a 3 hour wait. We met our tour guide about 15 minutes early, got in line and were let in (with our guide encouraging the guards) only about 10 minutes past our tour time. Not bad at all as they were limiting the amount of people in since it was so busy. I was a bit unsure about having a guide for such a small Gallery but it was well worth it. There were many facts and nuances I would have missed and knowledge makes things more interesting and I found it better to admire the genius at work. Highly recommend a tour. Your time after traveling so far is well worth it.
Another awesome Viator experience! Our guide Ida was great, I loved skip the line and the wonderful explanations Ida gave us of Michelangelo's amazing David. If I had to do it again, I'd do it this exact same way!
Really great guide, got in very quickly despite the crowds. Had a great time exploring the rest of the gallery, after being introduced to some key artists/artworks, Michelangelo and David included.
Our guide, Sylvia, was wonderful. Definitely worth it to participate in this tour. You get in to the museum within 15 minutes, bypassing very very long lines. Sylvia was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. We all learned so much from her. A truly enjoyable experience.
You can opt to see the museum on your own but all the knowledge that we gained from our guide was wonderful. We were able to appreciate the statue of David so much more.
Second time taking this one. I actually just used the tour to gain front of the line access to the museum. I didn't take the tour this time. The museum is small and you don't need a tour to see the main attraction. We waited about 30 mins past our start time, which I thought was lame.
We only had a few hours in Florence and I had to decide between visiting the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia Gallery. Based on the recommendation of a friend who had been to both, I booked this tour to see the Accademia Gallery. It did not disappoint. The Statue of David was breathtaking and the guide was great at providing us with the highlights of the other pieces while still allowing us the freedom to explore the museum on our own.
Great tour. Loved seeing David... truly a magnificent work of art. My twin boys were in awe of the detail. Very knowledgeable guide (William).
guide was excellent,went in as a group as promised. beat the lines
A a wonderful tour with a very knowledgable guide who explained all the details of the period. Highly recommend this tour. The sculpture of David will bring a tear to your eye, amazing.
This was so much better than just walking off the street to see "David". Guide was interesting, well-informed, and enthusiastic! - all traits we expect on a tour!
This was a wonderful tour. We enjoyed it very much. Thank you Viator!!
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and did a superior job guiding the group through the museum. She politely answered questions and was patient with everyone who stopped along the way to take an extended look at some piece of art. I was very pleased with her perspectives of The Statue of David and the unfinished works of Michelangelo. I highly recommend this tour!!!!
Very clear guide with interesting information, you can go around the rest after the guide has finished.
The guide was exxcellent and very knowledgeable. I wish that they had spend some more time showing and explaining some of the other exhibits in the museum. they only discussed David.
Monica as trip guide is wonderful. she speaks perfact English and showed us a lot of details and interesting stories.
we will surely suggest this trip to our friends.
Our guide was enthusiastic and provided us with good background of florence.she made the tour very interesting and enjoyable. Her passion for the sculpture of David was fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend this tour
Our tour conductor was excellent, she was very passionate about Michangelo and that reflected in how she conducted the tour and made it all very interesting. We are so glad we decided to do the tour.
The normal queue was horrific even before the season starts...was good to have a skip the line...again guide was excellent, spoke fluent English very knowledgable. I will strongly reccommend these FLorence Viator tours to others.
Our guide Sylvia was tremendous!. Really made the experience. Threw this one on as an add-on one morning, and it was the best tour of our trip.
What an incredible tour. Viator really made my first visit to Italy quite an experience. Stephano was a fantastic tour guide! What a fantastic day.
