So much to see and so little time. Our guide did a great job of explaining the historical background. Uffizi was very crowded so it was hard at times to keep up with the tour. All in all a great experience.
The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and easy going. They kept the tour amusing and engaging throughout the entire time.
The morning and afternoon tours in December were an appropriate length for my husband and me as well as our two young adult children ages 19 and 21. Patrizia did an amazing job with the morning portion of the Accademia as well as the Florence walking tour. Angelo A. was awesome with the afternoon portion at the Uffizi. He gave us a new found appreciation for Italian art! A must for to complete your experience of beautiful Florence!!!
Good guide. Knew his stuff and was good at managing the crowd.
WOW! Who knew it would be a walk with a tour guide to awaken my curiosity of art history. I knew David would be magnificent, but whew. Our tour guide really knew how to lead you in to see him. Patricia was great and very knowledgeable. The group was not too large and we learned so much. Lorenzo at the Uffuzi Gallery was also a great tour guide, taking us to the most important works of art. Highly recommend this tour company!
An excellent tour. Angela, the guide was first class, knowledgeable, perfect English and was easily understood.
We had a terrific tour guide and best of all was that we got to skip the line at the two greatest art institutions in Florence - and believe me, the lines are LOOOOONG in the summer. We saw the best of both museums and due to the splitting of the tour into a morning and afternoon session with a lunch break, we also had time to explore the galleries more thoroughly on our own.
Great tour and we managed to see through everything given the short time we stayed in Florence
Great tour, wonderful guide, seeing the statue of David is a wonderful and moving experience
this is a great way to see everything. the tour guide was very knowledgeable.
Excellent and very informative. Sara our guide was awesome! In addition to being very knowledgeable about the pertinent history and culture, she had the pride and passion of a true Florentine. Highly recommend.
Don't bother to go with any other tour company. They were excellent. Professional, very, very informative, knew so much information... Amazing. 10 out of 10. Highly recommended

Great experience. Couldn't have been any better. We had wonderful guides Vanessa and Paolo. We wouldn't have been able to get through everything in the short time we had without the tour. Thank you.
Our morning guide, Angelo, was very informative and entertaining. You will not be tempted to check your watch with Angelo! Not hard to tell he loves what he does. The walking was not strenuous nor long. It was great to bypass lines and be given such informative insights. We were able to spend a great amount of time with David, which was a bonus we were expecting to be whisked through. Angelo's knowledge of Michaelangelo and his creative genius was superb. Our time in the Duomo was sufficient, as many have said, the exterior and its story seem more impressive. After a wonderful lunch break, we went to Osterio Vecchio Vicolo, a superb meal. Very close to the end point of morning tour and start point for afternoon tour. Beatrice was our afternoon guide for the Uffizi. This gal was most passionate about her art and invited us to suspend our preconceived notions and invited us to enter the images in a different way. A true art connoisseur! It was a delight to learn from her and absorb some of her passion.

Nice, easy walking tour of Florence. Lots of time built in to enjoy the sights and take pictures. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about both the art and the neighborhoods. I would highly recommend as a good way to get an overview of the important city landmarks.
I was blown away with the knowledge of both guides and all the amazing history and art!
This is the best way to see a lot of Florence in one day. The skip the line tickets are really worth it and the tour guides were amazing!
Great walking tour of Florence. We started the morning off going to the Accademia Gallery where we saw Michelangelo's David as well as several other pieces done by the master. From the Accademia we visited Florence's Duomo and got a tour of the inside. After seeing the Duomo, we walked to Piazza del Mercato Centrale to rub the snout of 'Il Porcellino', Florence's Trevi Fountain. From here, we visited Piazza della Repubblica before ending at the Arno River next to the Uffizi Gallery. After the morning portion of the tour, we had about an hour and a half of free time. This is a good time to grab a bite to eat. My wife and I got pizzas at Osteria Vecchio Vicolo to refuel for the afternoon portion of the tour. In the afternoon portion of the tour, we were given a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery. Once the tour was complete, we were given time to leisurely walk through the Uffizi Gallery or leave and enjoy another part of Florence. Overall, this was a great tour. Bring your walking shoes as you'll need them.
I really like these tours because the guides were natives of Florence and very passionate about their town. Having a guide in the Uffizi was wonderful as we were taken to the most important, impressive pieces and were told why they were important. We were then free to roam the gallery and take in the rest of the museum.
Make sure you have a map showing the meeting location church as it is NOT the Duomo.
Our guide was fantastic and was brimming with so much knowledge about Florence since she was a local. With so much overwhelming things to see in just a few hours, it was interesting to understand the specific history of a few of the pieces of art that we would have never known on our own. With the headsets on you could always wander and listen as she told us wonderful history without fear of not being able to hear the guide or be right next to her. This is the way to go as I saw some other tours that did not have the headsets. Besides the MUST SEE Uffizi and Accademia Galleries which were unbelievably gorgeous, it was wonderful just walking the streets and hearing wonderful history that we would have never known on our own. Once we had the walking tour it gave us an overview of where we wanted to explore later on our own since this was our first time in Florence and Italy. I highly recommend all of the Viator tours since we had six while in Italy and all of the guides were extremely knowledgeable and fun.
