This was outstanding - our guide was professional, very passionate about the art and history of the Accademia and very, very knowledgable....highly recommend this tour.
Really great service. The guide was a delight and added greatly to the art experience.
Our tour guide made this trip truly wonderful. The instructions on where to meet were a little scetchy. Was instructed to meet at Door 1. That's not true. Door 1 is on the otherside of the building and no one meets there. Just follow the crowd and meet where everyone else does.
This was very informative! what we liked most about this tour was that was got a pretty thorough walk through with descriptions and all with our guide, but then were free to roam the gallery on our own as part of the ticket price! David is amazing of course, but there is much more that is worth seeing in this Gallery!
Our docent rates as one of the two best we have ever ever had in all our travels. He was absolutely mesmerizing. He told stories about Michelangelo and contemporaries that made it all come alive. Our docent was humorous, knew his subject, and had a unique ability to bring all of his Michelangelo stories together into an understandable context.
I know there are copies of Michelangelo's David everywhere, but there was something special, almost religious, in seeing the original, and seeing first hand all that went into it. This tour and our docent are most highly recommended!
Although i thought I knew already everything about The David, the guide knew even more. He was a great storyteller. I loved that he knew even more about Michelangelo's other sculptures. Because of the ear-things I could wander around and still hear him talking, that was nice. Afterwards you can spend more time watching everything yourself and visit the other expo in the museum. Worth every dime! Skipping the line while seeing the line outside made me feel very lucky ;-)
excellent tour from start to finish - our guide, Angelo was both entertaining and informative and very passionate about the subject - the audio worked really well and although there were lots of other groups, Angelo managed to find great viewing points for us . well done would recommend this tour to everyone.
Very well organised with clear instructions of where to meet. Some of our party were late arriving due to unforseen circumstances however the staff couldn't have been more accomodating and helpful and we were all able to go on the tour together. The guide was very informative, spoke very good English and having the headphones was especially good as one of our group is hard of hearing and also you don't have to be crowded around the guide to hear what is being said. It was great not having to queue and walking in past the huge queues of people. We have used Viator before on a trip to Rome and would use them again.
wonderful ! our guide was both enlightening and passionate. highly recommend this tour especially when you arrive and see the line !!!
The guide was outstanding and one must not go to Florence without seeing the David...highly recommend
OMG to see David in person! It was fabulous. Our guide once again was great giving us an account of Michaelangelo's life. Was very fascinating. Was great to see the expression on people's faces when they first see David. Skip the line is great no waiting and great guide!
Very informative and interesting visit, with a good knowledgable guide
The tour was very informative - our guide was knowledgeable and we now have so much more information on the paintings than just walking through the galleria on our own.
Excellent tour guide was both informative and entertaining. Well worth bypassing the lines. Would not see Accademia without a guide and here again Viator has been an excellent company for the many tours we used them for.
The guide was excellent. We did not have to look far to know where the guide was, as they found us when we were looking at our paper work as there to figure out where to go. We felt like we learned a lot after. Thank you for this service.
Well worth the money, not only to beat the queue but to have such an informative guide.
We had an exeptional guide with insight into the art and the personalities of the artists.
The experience was very positive. Unlike my experience at the Uffizi, here I got what I expected, and the guide was interesting and passionate about the subject.
Very interesting tour, lots of knowledge as valuable as the David statue via a teriffic guide. thanks.
Our guide, Maria Grazie was excellent and showed great knowledge and passion on our tour. She explained in great detail Michaelangelo's methods, moods and skills as well as the history of David and we were holding back tears when we saw him............an excellent tour!
