Another fabulous tour where we felt so enlightened after the experience. I have never been on a Viator tour before, but will now make it a "must do" on all our European trips!
Great and knowledgeable guides. Concerned for welfare of group. Absolutely personable to answer questions. Would take tours with this company again.
Wonderful tour. The guide was excellent, and showed us all the important art works.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. William our local guide for the Accademia was brilliant, bright and very cute! It was fabulous to see the Accademia and then have plenty of time to wander the wonderful Firenze streets, find a fab little trattoria which we did at Trattoria Gabriella for a delicious lunch and then meet up again for the Uffizi tour. I feel bad but I have forgotten our beautiful guides name at the Uffizi but she was excellent as well. It was easy to find the reps at both places, both guides were excellent, both places we skipped the line easily, my only criticism was at the Uffizi we had a group of 8 so were not given headsets. Even in a small group in this gallery you really need the headsets.
Loved our tour guide ! Statue of David was AMAZING. I learned sooo much.. We didn't make the Uffizi Gallery.
Very convenient and thorough tour of both museums. It was great skipping the lines, and our guide was very passionate about the art, spoke good english, and provided a lot of commentary. The break in-between the tours gives ample time to eat, shop, explore more in Florence. Highly recommended

Amazing! The David in person was surreal. The way Elvio described the statue and the history surrounding David, it was more than just another tour!
A superb "hitting of the high spots" of both of these museums. The tours were well-organized and our tour guides were excellent! The break between the two museum visits was very helpful, giving us time for a little rest and relaxation. It was a wonderful bonus to be able to "skip the line!!"
This was a fabulous chance to hear all about the art from a guide who was knowledgable and entertaining. Beautiful art. A must on the to do list while visiting Florence.
The ONLY way to see Uffizi and Academia for the first time. Excellent tour guide, passionate and interesting.
We never would of been able to visit the Accademia and Uffizi without this tour. I love how we could skip the line. Others in our group were not able to do this because they did not plan in advance. The tour guides were very informative. I only wish we had more time to spend in the Uffizi as our tour started at 4:30PM and it closes at 6:45PM. We just got a tip of the iceberg there. I loved both museums and would highly recommend to anyone who is short of time or just wants to skip the line, to do this tour. We hope to get back to Florence sometime. It is a beautiful city with a lot of culture!!
Fantastic tours! Loved that I had time to enjoy one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The process of finding the tour guides was quite simple and I skipped right through the lines. I had Marcello as my guide on the Accademia tour and he was honestly THE best, funniest, most informative and knowledgeable guide I've ever encountered!!! You'll want him as your guide :) would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Firenze. FABULOUS all around, thank you!! Felicia, USA.
was a very nice tour company. our train was late and we almost missed the first half of the tour but the company gave us the tickets to skip the line anyway, very nice. if you want to see all of the uffizi though, there may not be enough time so watch the clock if you are planning to do everything
This tour is wonderful!! The tour was divided into two sections - morning at the Accademia and afternoon at the Uffizi. This was perfect for a relaxing day with time to enjoy lunch before "part 2." The guides were outstanding! You could live in Florence for years and never see all that there is to see. This two-part tour gave a great overview of some of the highlights. The Accademia tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. The tour guide at the Uffizi was especially talented . . . she was obviously well-educated in the arts and had a wonderfully entertaining way of imparting some of her knowledge. After each section of the tour, we could stay as long as we wanted to view other sections of the museums. This is a MUST for anyone visiting Florence. This was not our first trip to Florence, but this is the best tour we have experienced in the city! Highly Recommend! One thing I forgot to mention in the other reviews was that we had headsets so that we were always able to hear the tour guides while looking at the items she was discussing. This made all the tours very comfortable and enjoyable.
