Both on time, some queuing but not too bad. Guides were excellent
We were delighted to be able to Skip the Line at the Accademia and Uffizi Gallery and the guides were very informative. Will recommend it to my friends when visiting Florence.
Excellent tour. Both guides were very good with lots of information. It was very crowded at both places and this was a good way to get through both museums and see everything you need to. One piece of information would be helpful though because even with the skip the line you are going to have to wait in line at the Accademia. There is always a line even for groups.
A great tour, with such knowledgeable guides, Federica for Accademia, and Deborah for Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio. A must with skip the line otherwise you wait for hours.
Fabulous - our tour guide added so much to the tour -- a definite must
This seems to me to be the only way to see both of these fine buildings - the lines outside for tickets are daunting. We met first at the Accademia where our fantastic guide introduced us to the work of Michelangleo. I didn't catch his name but he was enthusiastic and knowledgable and a delight to be with. Of course the David was splendid as were the other pieces of art. Initally we were to meet at 4:30 at the Uffizi but due to an early closing we met at 2:45 - I think this might have been why it was so very crowded according to our guide. Our afternoon guide was a young woman who knew her art and passed along her enthusiasm. The pieces we viewed were wonderful, but what surprised me was the beauty of the building itself and the fabulous views. The tour also benefits from the use of audio whisperers so you can wander a bit away from the guide while still hearing him/her. Skipping the line and spending time with a guide who knows the art is well worth it.
We really enjoyed this day. The 2 tours were split so it gave us time to do our own things in the middle of the day. Our tour guide was informative and friendly.
5 Stars. Tour guides were outstanding. Content and length of tours, just right. Would recommend to all first time visitors to Florence.
Not to be missed, this was seeing the David and the Masters work in the Uffizi will be with me for the rest of my life. Our guide was great and would do this tour again.
Met our guide Antonio at Galleria. He was passionate about art, sculpture and he bought the statues to life. He is an asset to Firenze. Then onto Uffizi where we met Laura our guide who took us round to all the galleries where we saw all the famous artworks. Both Galleria and Uffizi have large queues well worth using this approach to skip the line to save time if on a city break.
What a wonderful experience in art history!!! Our guide was so informative and engaging.l...would easily recommend this and do again!
These tours were exceptionally good, with wonderful guides who were full of information, very clearly explained and made everything so interesting, could have gone on for hours. We loved them both.
It is a good option to skip line. Lunch is good. The guide was very good in Uffizi and poor in Academia. The tour to Academia has been delayed and not extended for that time. I would suggest to buy those tours separately.
Very knowledgeable art historians as guides. Excellent tour of the best works.
Wonderful tours of beautiful galleries. We enjoyed having free time between to grab lunch, shop, and explore more of the city. David, at the Accademia, exceeds expectations as does Birth of Venus at Uffizi!
Excellent in every way. It was easy to find the group when we arrived at the designated meeting place and both of the tour guides were wonderful!!! We were able to by pass the long lines to get into the museums and the sound system allowed us to hear everything that our guides were telling us. These tours made our trip even more wonderful! I would recommend these tours to anyone visiting Florence.
Meeting was good and the guides excellent for both. They are must do activities. The tours are pretty short so do them over two days so that you can stay in the galleries after the tour. Each gallery could easily take a day.
Nice that it was broken up so there was time to enjoy Florence for lunch and shopping. It would be too much to do both museums back to back. The guides were fun and educational. The skip the line was definitely quick at the Uffizi at the Academia, it was about 75 minutes, but the other line of people who did not reserve there was a wait of about 3-4 hours.Great way to get a taste and understand and see the masterpieces like the David.
A definite must if you want to see the highlights of the museums in the most efficient manner.
Excellent guides who were very knowledgeable and a great lunch included
