Magnificent David
Simone_P, Feb 2023
Loved everything and the build up to David . Martina was a great guide , friendly and very informative. Thank you
Martina was an excellent tour guide. I would highly recommend.
nicholas_g, Jan 2023
We met our tour guide Martina just outside the Academia. We had a very small group. Martina was extremely knowledgeable about art, sculpture, the artists & history enriching our museum experience. She was pleasant to listen to. I would highly recommend this tour.
Perfect first-time tour.
Bradley_B, Jan 2023
Perfect tour for first time in Florence. Our guide, Martine was terrific! She brought Michelangelo to life!

Regina_E, Jan 2023
Our group of 4 had a great time with Martina our guide. She made the 1.5hr tour fun and interesting.
Great statue, even greater guide.
Anne_T, Jan 2023
Anneke was so endearingly enthusiastic about her subject, so proud of her hometown, and so knowledgeable about Renaissance art in general and Michelangelo’s David in particular. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She made a cold, marble statue come alive and she helped me to understand the context in which this masterpiece was created. Please promote her and give her a raise!
Quick without skimping on the important details.
Gary_W, Jan 2023
Martina was an amazing tour guide with a wealth of knowledge. She did an amazing job building up our knowledge to fully understand the time periods and appreciate the art.
Excellent Option
Christine_O, Jan 2023
Martina our tour guide was fantastic! We were unable to make our original tour and they were so accommodating and helped us reschedule. Was the perfect amount of time, Martina shared information we would not have gotten otherwise and at the end you’re able to continue to look around on your own. Highly recommend!
A worthwhile experience and a good value.
John_C, Jan 2023
Martina was an excellent guide with good knowledge of our language and the subject matter. She was very enthusiastic and fresh in her presentation.
liza_b, Jan 2023
The tour was fantastic. Martina our tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, and attentive to our questions which were not many as she provided a lot of history and info throughout the tour. We certainly recommend this tour.
Great experience
Gabriela_A, Jan 2023
Martina was the best She gave us a very good explanation of the gallery and she was very professional
Remarkable tour guides make the experience special
Joshua_C, Jan 2023
Martina was a remarkable tour guide - the knowledge she possesses! Her command of the artisan history was so helpful in gaining context of the time, the people, the history, and the art. My only hope: that we had more time.
Martina was Wonderful!
Juan_B, Jan 2023
Martina was wonderful! Her eyes sparkled as she talked to us about Michelangelo, Botticelli, and others. Martina is a young, beautiful Florentina who fluently speaks Spanish and English (she mentioned other languages too). Ask for her!
Great tour!
snegley317, Jan 2023
Great experience! We had to miss the guided tour due to cruise departing earlier than expected so we had to get the tickets only and do a quick tour on our own. The guide was waiting on us and retrieved the tickets and made sure we knew where to go!
Wise to pick this tour.
Stacey_H, Jan 2023
Martina was our guide and she knew her history and enjoyed sharing and teaching us. She shared about the art and history of Florence and I learned many new things. The David in person is even more astonishing. We did get to skip the line and that is a big benefit.
Tour of the David Accademia tour
Lynda_V, Jan 2023
Ginny ( sorry if that the wrong spelling) was a fabulous guide. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very engaging. Didn’t rush the tour, happy to stay back and answer questions. Highly recommend this tour
David is way cooler in life
Adam_K, Jan 2023
Our guide was able to explain so much of history and answer all our questions about different art and of course David. This place is amazing it will take you at least another hour to view additional areas after tour. Really cool shop at end too.
David! Skip the line! Great tour!
Maribeth_K, Jan 2023
Seeing the David was a must-do for our short time in Florence. With this tour, we skipped the long line to get into the Accademia, and our tour guide Martina, was very knowledgeable, and spoke English clearly. She explained everything about all the art in the gallery, highlighting the different periods represented. She did a great build up to seeing the actual David sculpture and told us everything about it. The length and time of the tour were perfect. Highly recommended!
Seeing the David and...
Angela_G, Jan 2023
Seeing the David and getting the context and history of the art. Martina was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide
The best way to see the world's best sculpture
Cory_a, Jan 2023
This tour is really the only way to see the David. It's far more inspiring to get the full history behind the sculpture and have an expert explain the details of it. This tour was well worth it and a must do if you want to see the David.
