Arrived at both museums and the tour guides were easy to find. We had the same guide for both museum's and what a fantastic man he was. He was knowledgeable and really loved what he was showing us. I would of liked more time at the Uffizi gallery and maybe the tour would of been better doing the Uffizi first. Overall I would definitely recommend this tour. Can't wait to go back and do the Uffizi at our leisure.
The tour included two different museums and two different guides. We were with Rosalind in the morning at the Accademia. The information she gave us was invaluable and helped us enjoy the museum so much more. She was most informative but was too anxious about people taking pictures in the museum. The afternoon tour of the Uffizi was wonderful with Valerie. Again, we learned so much from her...great history and fun stories as well. We would recommend both of these tours without reservation.
Great tour guides with deep knowledge of Florence and the art. Outlet Uffici guide was Emma and the Academia guide was Simona. The logistics went well including skipping the long lines as promised.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery. Both guides were professional and knowledgeable and obviously passionate about their work. Would recommend both of these tours
A truly wonderful experience! Money well spent! The guide was informative and entertaining. A must do in Florence!
We had the greatest tour guide. I lived in florence 30 years ago and this was awesome. Our guide gave is all the great down and dirty history from old Florence
My wife and I participated in this tour on Thursday, June 5, 2014. I can only hope I have the Guides names correct but I believe it was Rita or Rosa, a British woman I presume from the warm reference to kids as Brats who took us thru the Accademia and Angelo (I think) who took us thru the Ufizzi Gallery. The incredible knowledge and passion both exhibited for the subject matter was complimented by their warmth and wit. Fabulous experience especially with them!
Excellent value. Skipping the very long lines at the museums was well worth the cost. The group guides were well informed and easy to communicate with. A great day in Florence.
Great informative stories, good tempo, could be a bit longer as so much to see. Thanks.
We had a combined tour, but the two museums were separated by several hours, which was the only way to go. Too much standing without a break is hard on the back and feet. We had a different guide in each museum, and they were both fantastic. I especially loved the British lady at Accademia (Rosalind?), but both clearly knew their stuff, with stories behind the stories, and were able to present it to us in an informative and fun way. I would definitely do a tour with either of these ladies again.
Our guide Antonio was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the Accademia and Uffizi galleries. His enthusiasm was infectious and made for a fascinating and enjoyable tour. Highly recommended.
It is worth the money to skip the line. It was well organized and the tour guides were knowledgable. I would also get tickets in advance for Domo as we waited for 45 minutes there.
The tour guides were knowledgable and and made the tour fun, especially the British woman from Yorkshire who ,ed the Accademia tour. She was a hoot! Both the Uffizi and the Accemademia have long lines to get in. This is indeed a great way to skip the lines.
Worth it... The guides spoke good English and we're very learned..especially the one who showed us the Uffizi gallery ...
Very well done. Both guides were excellent. Anna was especially good.
These galleries are both amazing! The tour guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining as well!
Both tours (Academia and Uffizi) went as planned. The tour guide for the Uffizi was Jan. He was the best guide we have ever had. However, there were so many guided tours for the Uffizi that the normal ticketed line went must faster than our line. I will use the Viatour service again.
Antonio was a delightful tour guide!! His deep passion for the art he was describing was apparent. He helped us to look for things we wouldn't have otherwise have noticed. His stories were very entertaining and he was personable and pleasant to spend the day with. We were in awe of the vast amount of knowledge he imparted to the group. We didn't have much time in Florence, and we felt we saw the most important things in Florence while we were there. Antonio had many background stories about the artists and in particular Michelangelo, which really made the art we were witnessing come alive. Antonio was a colorful character, and we enjoyed our tours of both galleries.
Fabulous guide. A British woman who must have been a retired professor . Learned a lot!
Helpful informative not only described the works but also informed about how the artwork fit within the politics economy and culture of the times
Great to be able to skip the queues and enter with no fuss or bother. worth the expense! Both tour guides were interesting and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend.
Enjoyed the guides and the history they gave the group. The break between tours is great to sit at a restaurant and enjoy a leisurely lunch.
GREAT TOUR ALL WENT ON TIME VERY INFORMATIVE GUIDE GALLERIES WELL WORTH VISIT
Each of these tours is a must if visiting Florence. Our guide Valeria was fantastic. It was her first day giving tours in English and we would never have known had she not told us herself. Her vast amount of knowledge about the subject matter coupled with her sense of humor made each of these tours fun and engaging. My husband and I have been to Florence many times, but this was a first for our teenage sons. We were all equally charmed by Valeria and her descriptions of the art and sculpture in front of us.
