Frederico pretty good but had a hard act to follow in Granny Rosalind at the Academia
really liked it. it was quick and we looked at all the important things.
Fantastic guide, full of knowledge. We had a great tour and learnt much about the history of Siena and the Palio.
Great tour and GREAT GUIDES. Both were very knowledgeable and made the experiences wonderful learning experiences. We were impressed with how ameable they were to stop and answer questions in spite of the big crowds. In fact, they both made us feel as if the crowds weren't there!
Really fantastic! :-) So enjoyable and informative - definitely the way to see the museums!
Ulysses was great and knowledgeable...enjoyed the tour...we did have to wait at Accademia about 1 hour although we had skip the line but it was not their/her fault it was just being in Italy during June and high tourism
Perfect way to see two of the main attractions of Florence. Short, sweet and to the point! I really liked how they broke up the tours with a 3 hour break in the middle to get something to eat and relax a bit. It is a bit hectic finding the tour guide.
The tour guides were great. Shared a lot of good information. Made the tour most enjoyable.
It was amazing! Our tour guides were very informed and spoke very good English. Can't imagine seeing this beauty without the help of an expert!
Good value and excellent, knowledgable guide. The Accademia was pretty much limited to seeing David. There being able to skip the line was one benefit, but our wonderful guide also gave us background a perspective that made the tour a good value. At the Uffizi, the works are so varied and are so extensive that a guide was essential to give meaning to what we were seeing. We would definitely book again. The on-line booking was simple, quick and hassle-free. Our group was small enought to allow good interaction with our guide.
The only way to visit these locations as the guide helps to give a lot of information and guidance.She was great at getting us a good position for taking photos and we enjoyed being part of a small group.All the guides in all our tours were always easy to find.
Enjoyed our tour of the Academy. However our tour of the Uffizi with our guide Aveni was AMAZING!!! One of the BEST tours I have ever had. Aveni was a wonderful guide. I am a University lecturer and Aveni was stunning with his audience engagement and his knowledge. We all learned so much. We have been travelling in Europe for a month and Aveni's tour of the Uffizi will be one of the highlights of our month in Europe. Aveni is a stunning guide. We were very lucky to be part of his tour. Well worth the money.
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.
