The best way to visit - very well organised,, knowledgeable and helpful guide. good value for money.
Our guide, I don't remember her name, an older lady with gray hair, was eccentric, hilarious, and knew her stuff! Absolutely worth it. Her background stories were intriging. I wish I had her as a tour guide throughout my entire trip!
This is a wonderful tour and our guide had a great deal of knowledge, he was easy to understand. i would recommend this tour.
Excellent tour of the Accademia Gallery, passing a couple hundred people waiting in line to enter! We ended with a viewing of David and The Prisoners. Our Guide was very knowledgable and passionate about Michelangelo's works; she was a joy to have lead us! Our first booking with Viator and certainly not our last! Our cruise ship changed the itinerary, including our date in Florence. One quick request and Viator easily changed our tour date so we wouldn't lose out. We're very happy with the whole experience!
Our guide turned what would simply have been a stroll past Michelangelo's David into a truly pleasurable experience! This was DEFINITELY worth the cost; we'll being traveling with Viator from now on!
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.
