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.
Perfect tour package for a one day visit to Florence. A must for understanding and appreciating the art history of this region. Wonderful, fun learning experience for any age.
You need to have a guide on both tours. Uffizi guide was the greatest
Excellent tour , very knowledgeable informative and witty guides who were able to add a little local colour and sense humour . We had limited time to explore both galleries and the tours picked out the highlights with some free time in both as well .would highly recommend .
Our tour guide was very knowledgable. She knows her stuff. We couldn't get enough of the history behind the artwork.
Giving 5 stars for mainly the Uffizi tour--our tour guide was the best guide of any tour we EVER took. Really explained the art in a way we could understand, showed us what to look for and it was really wonderful. I wish I could remember his name, Elvio?? Everyone applauded him at the end, never had that happen on a tour! Other guides were somewhat boring, but experiencing the David statue made up for it!
Very good, the local guide was extremely knowledgeable and insightful. Visitors should schedule additional time afterwards to check out some of the galleries they had to rush past -- there is not enough time during the tour to give everything its due. If you are not in shape to climb tall staircases, take the elevator and save your energy for the long, wonderful galleries.
The tour of the Academia and The Uffizi was excellent. The guide was extremely knowledgeable in history and art and kept our group well entertained. Access to the galleries was very easy, and not having to queue made entry very easy. A highly recommended way to get the most out of these Florence highlights.
Excellent way to visit the galleries and worth the expense.
The two "necessities" of any first visit to Florence -- which were on our list because it was my wife's first visit to the city. Both the guide for the Accademia tour (an older gentleman) and the guide for the Uffizi tour (a younger woman) were excellent -- knowledgeable and patient (with managing a decent-sized group in very crowded museums) and resourceful (because the crowds were such that each of them had to vamp for almost 30 minutes while we waited on the tour-group line to get in, and both had lots of both personal and museum-related stories to share).
David was spectacular and seeing and understanding some of the world's greatest masterpieces with our very eyes was a dream! We highly recommend this tour!
