My fiance and I took two half day tours the same day. This was the morning tour, and the tour guide was excellent. If you had a question, she had the answer, and could ellaborate on the answer. There are so many things to see in Florence, that you could walk for days and not understand all you were seeing; consequently, a tour gives you the heads up. This tour gave us a lot of history and information about Florence, as well as the highlight, for us, of going to the Accademia Gallery and seeing the David in person.
Skipping the line for any museums in Florence means waiting 20-30 minutes versus over an hour as an individual without prior purchase of a ticket. So, you definitely skip the line for a shorter line!

excellent guide but headphoned would have enhanced it. Long wait to get into Acadamia in spite of guided tour.

It was very nice to be in a small group, Nicoletta was very knowledgeable, passionate about art and personable as well as accommodating (e.g. asking if we wanted to stop anytime). Plus it was nice that we had paid to skip the line rather than queue!!

The guide on our tour was fantastic, very knowledgeable about Florence and the paintings in the Accademia. Finishing up inside the gallery is also very good for those of us who wanted to see more.

Beware that there is not clear sign at the meeting place, the lady will eventually show up and lead you through the town. The tour was nice but the guide had interrupted herself several times to let visitors of the church (not on our tour) know that camera flash should be used. I appreciate her passion about her city's treasures but her work dedication should probably come first. There are church attendants to take care of other things. Otherwise, it was a rather comprehesive tour of Florence.

The walking tour was a great way to get oriented in Florence. It is a very busy city especially during holidays and we were able to learn about and navigate the city with the help of the tour guide. It was also so nice to skip the huge line for the Academia
