Florentines make the best guides - knowledgeble, passionate, funny and loads of fun - both guides enhanced what was an already spectacular experience.

Excellent tour guide-wish it could have been longer. Each place deserves it's own 3 hour tour.

Excellent tour. It was great to be able to skip the long lines. Beautiful art with interesting commentary and tidbits of history. Not too long, but ample time to explore on our own too.

Impressive collections of art in both galleries. The guide for Accademia was very good (forgot her name). Alex (guide for Uffizi) was absolutely terrific with such helpful explanation of the historical background. She was captivating and we wished we had more time to stay in the museum (but had to run off right away to catch a train). Very nice first introduction to these amazing collections. Definitely will come back.

We were lucky enough to have the same guide for both, Michael, and he was informative and charming, and very patient. I would strongly recommend visitors to use your service - without it I don't we would have had the energy and know how of navigating the entrance process. It's not that the Italians are not well organized - for they are - but the sheer number of people trying to get in. Even in mid-October, Florence was packed.

Uffizi tour guide was exceptional and edcucational. Other tourists not in our tour were listening to her.

Well, the 'skip the line' tour needs to be re-named to 'join a shorter line, but still wait'...it took us a very, very long time to get into the Accademia...although frankly, once I saw the stature of David, I would have stood in line longer. The Uffizi also had a very, very long lineup of people who were 'skipping the line'...it was a joke among the travellers. Our guide was fantastic at the Accademia - we felt we had an entire art education...loved it.

Tour Gide very very knowledgable and a true lover of the arts
A must for the proper information and ability to ask questions.
Small group as well

Both guides knew their stuff in terms of art history and shared excellent facts about the pieces we were seeing. Fast paced tours and while nice to have more time to explore other parts of both certainly focused on high points. Both guides did a good job of moving us around among other tours to get the best vantage points possible. Both guides we are also easy to understand and best to keep up with them so near the front of the tour to get the best reception possible on the ear phones. Suggest you bring your own double ear plugs if only single ear plugs provided as this helps block out background noise from other guides and the public. A lot of visuals to absorb but well worth the cost of the guided tour just to skip the long lines plus having an explanation of what you were actually looking at. Would recommend to others but be sure you get a guide that has a good grasp of the English language if that is the tour you have selected.
