Michelangelos 'David'...what else can be said. You turn the corner in this very unassuming building that was once a convent and there he stands. It was the most amazing site to see. The tour guide was knowledgeable but a bit pushy. We were able to stay after the tour was over to enjoy at our leisure. The wait was long to enter but well worth it. Don't settle for the replica...take this tour and see the masterpiece in person. We went in July 2016.
Great tour, the tour guide was brilliant. She gave loads of information about the gallery, the art, history and Florence. Some great tips about what else to see and do, the tour was actually over 2 hours long but seemed a lot shorter as everything was so interesting and the stories she told us really brought the Medici family to life. There was only 5 of us and I would not hesitate to do this tour again!
Our guide went above and beyond. We learned more than I expected to! Our guide was very funny as well. Her insight was amazing and to not have to wait in line, was a great experience. Saves so much time in a city where there is so much to see!
As we waited for our tour we saw the excellent guide we had at the Uffizi the day before. Sadly, we were not in his group. Our guide, I think her name was something like Fredrica or Francesca, was superb.
Another great trip made very special by memorable by your excellent guide.
Very knowledgeable guide in Helga! Paying extra to skip the long lines in the summer months was definitely worth the price.
This tour was just the right length of time. Our guide took us around the museum and explained several areas and works of art. I never felt rushed or like we lingered in one area too long. It was a good value, especially to skip the lines because they were crazy long and it was very hot outside.
Wonderful guide. Disappointed that we still had to wait in line for 30 minutes.
Amazing! A MUST SEE when in Florence. The David is ah inspiring- the prisoners are fascinating. This museum was a highlight of our trip. Friendly and knowledgable guide.
Fantastic tour. So much historic, priceless art and artifacts. My favorite tour of my trip. I will never forget it. Guide did a good job of keeping the tour group together and interpreting the art facts and background for us. So glad I did the tour, rather than visit the gallery on my own.
Excellent experience!! Our tour guide, Elisa, was outstanding. This tour exceeded our expectations and made the trip to Florence a lifetime memory. The description on the webs site was accurate! Arriving at the museum we immediately found someone who directed us to Elisa.
Great tour. Very crowded in the Accademia, so definitely worth having the guide .
The museum was very busy. It was great to go right in. Our guide was passionate and knowledgeable.
This was a great tour. The David is amazing and the guide gave us a lot of information about it. She did a wonderful job walking us around the Gallery and explaining special pieces. She answered many questions throughout and even gave the group extra time.
Our tour guide was wonderful. She really took the time to explain a lot of the history and smaller details of what we were seeing. It was a great experience.
Amazing! We arrived at the front of the Accademia, met the tour people and were looked after brilliantly. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowlegable. She explained many of the displays on the way to Michelangelo. Once in the main hall she gave us expert information then allowed ample time to observe the magnificent statue. Our guide provided us with information and insights that we would not have had if we had done the tour by ouselves. Whole heatedly recommended...but don't forget to book early.
Guide was very knowledgeable and gave us the details of the highlights of the Accademia.
Our guide was absolutely phenomenal! He was very insightful and kept the entire tour engaged and interested.
