I really enjoyed the tour. The prize was The Last Supper but all the other places we went to was enjoyable. The bus was nice and comfortable. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgable. I reccomend it for a nice overview of Milan.
This was an excellent tour package. The gentleman who gave the tour of "David" was one of the best tour guides I have ever had. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and made David come to life. His English was exceptionally easy to understand. In the afternoon we went to the Uffizi. The tour was good - but not nearly as good as the morning tour. The lady's English was good and her knowledge adequate, but her presentation was somewhat dull and lacked enthusiasm. I gave this tour a 5 because of the morning guide - seems to me the name is somewhat like Ansul - but know that is not correct
Two great tours and we had wonderful guides. Rosalind (@Academia) has 30 plus years experience and is a master story teller. Seeing David in person was worth it's weight in gold.
The Uffizi was also great. However, it was very crowded and sometimes difficult getting close enough to the art that was being described. William was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed seeing many famous works of art.
Two fabulous tours of two very important art galleries/museums. In the morning, Sue (I think that was her name - she is an older women with a British accent, I think she may have been an Art/History teacher - she was quite passionate about the history of what we were seeing), took us through the Accademia tour and regaled the group with a great deal of Michelangelo history. I enjoyed her detail and passion very much. In the afternoon, William, provided us with an extensive art lesson on some of the very important paintings hanging in the Uffizi Gallery. Both guides gave me the information/knowledge to really appreciate, understand and translate the meaning of the works of art that I was viewing. I recommend this tour and Sue and William.
This tour, although very long, is worth the sore feet! The guide was very informative and enthusiastic which made the journey round the museums very enjoyable. The statue of David became one of the highlights of our holiday! I would say the price is spot on, it's worth it just for the queue jump!
Very quick walk through both museums, just enough to see the main points
It was a long day but we really enjoyed it. The guide was knowledgeable and took time to answer questions. I came away from those tours with a better understanding of the art and it's development given historical events at the time the art was created.
Our guide William was exceptional. He was full of enthusiasm , passion and knowledge.
We signed up for the lunch between tours and it was a fantastic restaurant, we went back and had dinner there also before we caught to train back to Venice.
One issue was the employee that was supposed to be waiting for us to escort us to the restaurant after the 1st tour was a no show. We had to find it on our own with a map she left with us which was doable , but we were waiting a while wondering where she was.
Great content. We only thought the guide at the accademia could have been less concerned with historcal facts and more concerned with the actual art.
We had a great time. Both guides were very informative and gave great background to the pieces of art that we viewed. Both museums were extremely busy and the skip the line was worth it, but we did have to wait to enter both museums because it was so crowded. If we did not have the skip the line tickets, I do not think we would have gotten into the museum.
Wonderful way to visit these two, most interesting museums in Florence. We liked having time in between the two tours to walk around the city, eat and shop.
Great tour with two spectacular tour guides. These tours are a must when you are in Florence. You will need a good camera for all of the pictures you will be taking.
If you only have a short time in Florence make sure to visit these museums.
Nice guided tour of the two museums. Sylvia was excellent. If I did this again, I would not select the lunch option. That comes after the guided tour of Accademia. That tour doesn't cover the whole museum. You would be better served to spend another hour or two going though Accademia on your own. The tour of Uffizi doesn't start until 4:15, so you have plenty of time to stay at Accademia longer. Eat a big breakfast or eat a late lunch.
