Lovely! The highpoint of our trip was the opportunity to see the David sculpture for ourselves. With this early access option, we essentially had the place to ourselves for pictures and to enjoy it in all of its wonder. Later, the Gallery was absolutely packed and I know we would have been surely disappointed if we had been that crowded. The light breakfast after the tour was a nice treat. Effectively just a pasty and coffee, but enjoyable just the same. I highly recommend!
What a phenomenal experience! Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone going to Florence.
Tour guide Lucia was passionate about her description of David and the way Michelangelo could see the way to approach the large piece of marble. The breakfast was a very pleasant addition.

This was an excellent tour. Being able to have early access made all the difference. By the time we left, it was so crowded. Our tour guide I think her name was Julie was excellent. She told us many interesting facts.
Definitely worth it to see David up close without the huge crowds. When we first got in there were a handful of people milling around but within about half an hour there were huge crowds all clambering to take a photo. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable.
We had a great guide who was extremely knowledgeable and has a great deal of love and passion for the Art and Florence.
We were running late and Luisa left our tickets at the front desk which the guards at the front were aware of, via the CAF Travel group office. We were escorted to the small group and were able to catch up quickly. The David itself is amazing, but the other sculptures that were included were just as amazing in their own right. The tour started early, at 8:15 which gave us the opportunity to see the art in a quieter, more intimate setting. Incredible way to start the day! After that we went to the chocolate cafe to enjoy our Cappuccino and pastry. I highly recommend this to all that visit the Accademia.
Early morning entry to skip the line and beat the crowds took us straight to David ahead of the surge. Our guide was wonderfully knowledgeable and passionate about all she shared with our small group of 6. Worth the money and early arrival!
A great trip with a knowledgeable host
We had a wonderful tour guide, who was passionate about Michelangelo and the Accademia Gallery. She was engaging, and she did a great job explaining the history of the key sculptures, and keeping it interesting. The tour was the perfect length of time, and we were one of the first tour groups to get in. Worth doing this tour if you want to visit the gallery.
Our tour was held late August 2017. Viatour booking is easy with lots of good info to help you decide. The guide met us on time at the appointed place, then we went right into the museum without waiting. I can't say enough about how impressed I was with our guide! She spoke excellent English, was very knowledgeable and passionate about Michelangelo! Before she started her talk we had some time to look and take in our first impression of the statue David. We had almost an hour with her including Michelangelo's other marble work. The breakfast voucher had a map so we could find the shop which was close by and covered a nice choice of items. All in all I was very pleased.
