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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
This tour was amazing. The tour guides were very good. Not to miss this tour.
Great collections and a reservation with a tour company is a must to reduce wait time. An in my case, it was really nice to know what I was looking at.
The Skip the Line tickets saved us a lot of time with the queuing and the guides were very impressive in both their knowledge of the exhibits and English
Very enjoyable day
Great tour. Our guide Rebecca was very knowledgeable and clearly pretty passionate about the museum and its pieces. Definitely recommend!
What an awesome tour! We had two different guides, a lady in the meaning and Marchello for the afternoon tour!
Both were animated and had great sense of humor!
They made the tour so worthwhile!
Great tours, both of them. Great tour guides, with great English. Skipping the lines is awesome and the lines were incredibly long. This is the only way to go. Lunch, well it wasn't special, but it was filling!

Excellent tour! I was very happy we had a guide. Meeting our guide was a quick process. After we met we had to wait in line to get our tickets but our guide handled everything. It was nice having a guide - I was concerned it would be information overload but she explained a lot of key pieces and I left feeling very satisfied and knowledge. Sometimes in crowed rooms it was hard to find her. It would be nice like some of the tour companies to have flags so you can always find your guide. Our guide was a historian and full of knowledge. She was wonderful!
Wonderful tour! Great tour guide and excellent food and wine! Only complaint is that the bus ride is EXTREMELY bumpy. New shocks on the bus are definitely in order. Those with car sickness should avoid this tour due to the bumpiness and twists and turns.
Elena was superb. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Uffizi, Florence, Art and history. She is passionate and seems very interested in her job and the tour. She is patient and takes her time.
We had different guides with completely different styles for each segment, and yet each was thoroughly enjoyable, informed, and accurate with their historical details. We were very glad that we signed up for this tour with a nice break for lunch. Thank you!!!
we had 2 different guides, one for the Academia and another for the Uffizi. Both spoke perfect English and both were absolutely fantastic. The young, enthusiastic woman for the Accademia gave us a wonderful taste of the museum away from the room with the David and the Slaves. She built up interest and energy and anticipation before we entered the room with David. Really fun and very informative.
