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.

Both were excellent. Tour. Both tour guides were excellent and again they afforded us opportunity to see what should not be missed. The guided tours meant that we escaped from having to queue for hours. Tours guides interacted well with our teenage daughter making her experience ever so much better

Loved seeing the my two favorite Floence museums again. Even better this trip because we made Viator tours in advance, and so missed the lines. The guide was terrific.

Our guide for both parts to this tour was called Silvia. She was very knowledgeable and interesting and her passion for art was evident. We had longer at both venues if we wanted it after our guide had finished her explanations. Michelangelo's, 'David', is mesmerising and we were shown an interesting range of masterpieces at the Uffizi Gallery. Thoroughly enjoyable.

The skip the line was an easy way to make the most of visiting the Accademia and Uffizi in one day. Our guide was informative and her knowledge extensive.

Sandro did an excellent job of this tour in providing us with the information in such an easy manner to understand. He was very entertaining and extremely passionate about the topic area. The only thing was the "Skip the Line" was nottotally honest in that we stood in the Accademia entry line for about 45 minutes before entry to receive only 45 minutes of guidance.
Silvia was excellent on the Uffizi Gallery Tour and we didn't wait in any line for entry there. She again was fascinating with her grasp of topic areas and presented them with such passion.

Even on a very busy day, extra cruise ships in town, we were able to get in easily to both venues.
Be mind full that you should not take large back packs as you will most likely have to "check them" and collect after the tour.
