Must do tour! We were very impressed with both tour guides for this package. Both were professional, very knowledgeable and passionate about there work in sharing the art treasures of Florence.
We visited several museum afterwards after these tours and remaked how much we missed by not having a guide to give us the background, history and story of the art, artist and time.
The late morning and late afternoon tours were perfect for us. Time to have a nice breakfast and walk the streets, an afternoon break to enjoy lunch and relaxing before an interesting immersion into moreother Florence art.
This was very informative. It was worth doing rather than walking it on your own. The guides were very friendly and helpful.
This was so worth the money! Skip the line, which was substantial when we arrived, was so awesome to just be ushered in ahead of everyone else. They were so organized and the Guides were informative and funny and enthusiastic. My husband and I commented on how much more enjoyable a museum was when someone took you to all the major pieces and explained them. 90 minutes was about as much museum as I can handle at one time so that was perfect. I would skip the lunch part and just get lunch on your own as you are walking to the next museum. So easy to do that since there are thousands of bistros
Thorough and to the point with interesting side notes. Enthusiastic guides.
Just right length of time with enough time between th e 2 tours to have a lovely lunch and to wander around . The guides were very informative and enthusiastic altogether an enjoyable day
The guide Angelino was so passionate about the paintings and the statue of David. He made us really understand the renaissance period and the genius of the artists. The 2nd guide helped us to see the genius of Leonardo da Vinci showing us how to look at the paintings as they were meant to be seen from lower down looking up. We also came to understand the role of the Medici family in promoting these talented artists. This knowledge really enhanced the pleasure we had of looking at everything else Florence had to offer. Money well spent and an experience never to be forgotten.
This was an amazing tour! It is split into 2 parts, at 11:30am and 4:30pm. We had 2 different guides, both were brilliant in weaving historical information about Italy, culture and technique when explaining the art work at these museums.
We find it is so much more helpful to have a knowledgeable person take us through the museum and give us the history that goes with the art! Loved it!
Great tour and tour guide, would definitely recommend. When I booked I thought these were two consecutive tours, but there is a break in between the Accademia and Uffizi. Not a problem, because we had a marvelous lunch in between. Our guides provided all the highlights to both museums.
This was a great experience. Both guides were knowledgable, gave great insights and made the experience a real treat. Plus, we were able to skip the long lines at both museums.
This tour was awesome! The "skip the line" feature is great, but even better is the in-depth knowledge shared by our guide, Monica, who ensured that we saw all the major works and also shared many subtle details. Worth the money.
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the art, politics, history, and culture of Italy during Michelangelo's life. She was able to "paint" a picture for us about David that made me appreciate this sculpture even more than I ever dreamed of. She pointed out every detail and took the time to walk us entirely around the sculpture. To see David from this perspective was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy!
The Uffizi Gallery Tour was VERY good! We were lucky to tour at a time when there were very little crowds, which allowed us to take the time to really see the artwork up close and in detail without being rushed. The guide was very good: full of information, facts, stories. She knew her art!!
Outstanding!!! Prior to making a reservation, I read most of the reviews about these tours, everything said was true. It is a "must see" places to visit. So much history to absorb but because of the guided tour it gave us a lot of info about the art and the artist. Both guides for both tours were highly knowledgeable and entertaining which was an added bonus. Thank you.
Well, in November there were no lines to skip, but still worth going for. Our guide at the Uffizi was a marvellous character who had us all stiffling our giggles when she told off the security guards for being too noisy. Both tours were just the right balance of information and light hearted banter. One slight niggle was the Uffizi tour started at 4:30 and didn't finish til 6:15, and on that day the Gallery closed at 6:30 giving us just 15 mins to do the remaining 80% that we hadn't seen.
