Awesome guide who helped me see and appreciate things I would otherwise have walked straight past. I wouldn't go to these museums without a guide for that reason, and I would never stand in the lines to get in anyway. Ridiculous waits. What a madhouse - Accademia especially. My only criticism is that when it is so very crowded at the meeting point there really needs to be more clarity about which guide you are supposed to meet. There should be a sign or something raised up saying where you are to assemble with clear "Skip the LIne" labels. I don't know connections between companies so having another company name displayed on a shirt - if you can see that even - means nothing to me. We struggled to find our spot, as did other people and there was quite a few frustrated people running about. That was common at a few meeting spots, but exacerbated when it is so crowded - and hot.

Tour Guides were for both the Accademia and the Ufizzi superb. So knowledgrable, so happy to share that knowledge and answer all questions. They provided insights into the artists themselves as well, which enriched the whole experience even more. Very professional tour withh expert guides.

We were so glad we took this double tour. Both our guides were very good. However, the second tour at the Uffizi with Rosalynd Pio was sinply AMAZING. We felt as if we were living in the times she described!! I would advise everyone to take this tour because it communicates the spirit of Florence to you! Thank you Rosalynd!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and was very thoughtful about giving participants a chance to ask questions, stop for restroom breaks, and other activities that made people comfortable.

Accademia tour fell short and did not live up to its expectation with exception of David. The tour guide we felt was informative ,but Dull.
Now the Uffizi tour was Brilliant from the onset and the Guide complimented it as he was Superb

Very nice staff great job! Except I wouldn't go again in August too hot and there isn't any A/C in these museums.

Both tours are great. Each tour is not long yet informative. The guides are knowledgeable are engaging without being annoying. The break between the two tours gave us time to relax and rest. Perfect!

A wonderful day that was very well organized. The guides were very well informed and friendly. Skip the line worked so well, we were quickly taken into the museums. It was good that there was a break during the day between the two museums, allowed for a relaxing lunch (recommend Cavellinos). A very enjoyable day.

I and my companion enjoyed the 2 musuims so very much. Especially the David. There was just the right amount of time inbetween for lunch and a gelato. Thank both of the guides for us.

Fantastic. Our guide was brilliant, so knowledgeable and fun. I've been to so many art galleries and museums over the year but it's only on this trip I've tried doing it with a guide and truly it enhances the experience tenfold.

Our guide was so knowledgeable she cld have been a professor of art history. Amusing anecdotes, deep information and insight into the works of art, artists and the history of Florence. If was Elvis I would have tipped her with a Cadillac! She was awesome !!!
