This tour was fantastic! The "skip the line" is a little deceiving at the Accademia, since there is a line for people without tickets, and a line for people with tickets the tour groups, so we did end up waiting about 30 minutes to get in. The other stops along the way were very interesting, and we really enjoyed this tour!

Excellent tour. Guide was well-informed & very personable. The route took in all we expected, & we had free time in the Accademia at the end. Highly recommended.
The guide was extremely knowledgeable and did a great job despite a sore throat. The sites are marvelous, and it was great to have some insider knowledge. The David was as amazing as I thought it would be, and the guide's knowledge on the gallery was fantastic. It was so good, I booked the afternoon tour of of the Uffizi with the same guide.
This tour provided great insight and perspective to Florence. The guide was very knowledgeable.
Best guide we had of seven in Italy. She knew it all and shared it with us. Terrific!

Great guide. She did a great job. Took us to places too new to be in the tour books, new castle that opened up in Florence.

This was a great trip. Though it was raining that day, I did not feel upset thanks to the wonderful guide. She spoke very good English, and she seemed to be dedicated to explaining things to us. I am sure we would not have learned as much without her.

Fantastic tour guide was interesting and informed. The headphones worked great in crowded and noisy places.
Donna M Canada
Our guide was fantastic. She knew her history, was passionate about her love of Florence, and brought the stories to life. She had outstanding interpersonal skills. We only had a short time in Florence, and this walking tour was the highlight. The six adults in our party were unanimous with their accolades about the tour. Thanks!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very informative and exciting. The whole tour is done by walking through Florence, but the city center is small enough that it didn't seem like we were walking a long distance. It also was good to get in the group line for the Accademia, which made the wait to see David a lot shorter.
We enjoyed this walking tour. Our guide was very informative and gave us a lot of history about Florence.
Also the skip the line for the museum was wonderful.
This was a fantastic way to discover a great deal of interesting information about the history and significant structures of Florence in a relatively short time. Michaela was well versed in this information, and she knew all the spots from which to obtain the best perspective of the features we were being shown. The visit to the Accademia and its iconic statue of David was a real treat. The chance to look at the detail of the sculpture from the back - veins, sinews, slingshot straps, and the huge rock nestled in his right hand ready for loading - was a revelation that would never have occurred to me beforehand. And the history of the sculpture !! A great tour.
Great walking tour. Saw lots of off the beaten track sights. Great guide. Recommend it

Very good informative tour with highlight the Florence hidden jewls as the guide described the not so flaunted Florence sights.Excellent description in the Academia.
The highlight of this gallery is Michelangelo's David, a 17-foot masterpiece carved from a single block of marble. The sculpture is so perfect that you can see the blood in the veins ! The guided tour was useful to observe all the intricacies of this piece, like the attention to the nails and the over-sized hands. The gallery also has four of Michelangelo's slaves in the Non-Finito unfinished style where you can see the figures pushing their way out of the stone. There is also a section with more marble sculptures by other artists and a musical instrument gallery displaying instruments crafted by Stradivarius.
There was no real Skip-the-Line access, we still had to wait out in the rain for about 15 minutes while the tour guide went to see what she could do. Some of the regular line folks got in earlier than us, but then they may have been waiting for a long while.
A good way to get orientated with Firenze when you have little time in the city. Our guide was knowledgeable.
Our day started out HORRIBLE !!!!! We were late for the tour because nobody in Florence would help us find our meeting point. We went to the information center we were were greeted by the rudest people I have ever experienced !!!!! I stayed on the phone with Viator customer service who did everything they could to guide us and help us. Our tour guide Sara came back to meet us so we could pick up the tour from there. Sara was a wonderful tour guide and we enjoyed the remainder of our tour.
There were 6 of us, and our guide. We nimbly moved through all the promised sights getting lots of good info about how history related to the art we were looking at. Sometimes hard to hear.
Very good tour of the essentials with an extremely knowledgable guide who was very passionate about her city and the art we saw. Yes recommend. Thank you from Australia.
