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.
The Viator connection in Florence were wonderful in that I had mixed up the dates of our reservation and they took care of it on the spot with a smile! I would recommend them again. David was the highlight of the Accademia and our tour guide was helpful but seemed a little unsure of herself. The tour guide for the Uffizi was a different person. He was outstanding and made this museum come to life! it was great that these 2 tours were several hour apart from each other to break up the day!
both tours were excellent. the guides were knowledgeable and engaged the participants. they related art to history and the present. well worth the money.
very expensive, but well organised and the 2 guides made it worth it
Antonio was a great tour guide full of knowledge about Florence history. He made our wait in front of the museums much more interesting.
Wow, we knew there was a lot to see in Florence but really had no idea how much. Both our guides for the Accademia and Uffizzi Gallery were knowledgeable and entertaining. Our guide in the afternoon at the Uffizi Gallery had a great sense of humor and set expectations well focusing on Florentine/Italian history and artists. We definitely recommend this tour with the lunch.
Apart from a little mix up as to the Accademia meeting point the whole experience was excellent.The tour guide Antonio was interesting, knowledgeable and had an excellent command of English.
These tours were great! Seeing the David was really special. We thoroughly enjoyed these two tours and highly recommend them. Our tour guide, Jessica I think that's her name, was extremely knowledgeable and we really appreciated her guidance.
This tour was amazing! Of course the Accademia has the main highlight: David. But the Uffizi is huge and the tour is longer than expected, plus you'll get a chance to see more famous paintings. I definitely recommend this one!

Great guides. Being able to schedule both locations at different times worked out great
Our tour guide Asandria? was fantastic! She was so knowledgeable spoke wonderful English and went above and beyond to make our tour a memorable experience! She made the tour:
Skipping the lines was great and I really liked the headsets used so that we could stand comfortably near without having to crowd around the guide to hear what was being said. I would have liked a little extra time in the Uffizi Gallery after the guided tour....would suggest starting that one 30-60 minutes earlier that would still leave plenty of time to wander the Accademia and get lunch before meeting at the Uffizi. Overall, great tours with interesting guides.
Very informative. Enjoyed skipping the lines! The guide was great!
On all of our tours in Italy this was in the top 2, great tour and great guides!
The tour was very good, helped me save time to skip the lines, and the guides were excellent to provide a lot of interesting information related to great works of art.
Especially enjoyed the tour of the Uffizi. Our guide was so knowledgeable and was excellent at imparting it. She brought the gallery alive. It would be better if the Uffizi tour was in the morning so you could stay in the gallery for longer and see some of the other paintings.
