This is definitely a do not miss tour! We were one of the first groups into the museum and were able to view the David before anyone. Walking up the corridor seeing the David standing alone was breathtaking. Simply amazing. When we were leaving, there were throngs of crowds and tours surrounding the David making it hard to even be near it. Our guide Ciro was equally amazing as he was very informative.
Great and professional guide! We were the very first to enter the Accademia!
Excellent to view David with no crowd! Guide was most informative.
the only way to see the great sculpture works by Michaelangelo with less than 30 people in the room. It lasts just 20 minutes or so then the crowds pour in. Guide was very knowledgeable. Breakfast was down the road after the tour. Did not eat the breakfast.
Well organized and super-informative. Nothing was more spectacular than being among the first to be able to enter the nearly-empty Accademia and see the most magnificent David at the end of the gallery--in his own splendid alcove. Lucia our art historian guide was excited, informative, not-rehearsed and passionate about the information she was sharing with us. The breakfast at a cafe 2 blocks away was wonderful, and included coffee cappuccino, espresso, or Americano, a glass of water, a croissant and a chocolate.
The tour guide was great - very knowledgeable and interesting in his explanations. The main benefit of this tour, though, is getting in the museum before the crowds. That is priceless. It was such a great experience to really get to walk around The David and stay awhile in quiet thought without getting shoved and moved along. If you can budget it, I would not do the Academy any other way.
Great to be the early tour. Our guide took the group directly to the David and worked backwards. We had David with a minimal crowd. I can't see why folks wouldn't book this when traveling so far. The lines to get in at 8:30 were long!! We wlaked right by just before our tour time.
Highly recommended! Guide was very knowledgeable and it was great to skip the lines in the heat. Our small group was the first in so we had David all to ourselves. Highly recommend!
Wonderful tour! Short and sweet and allows and up-close look at the David before the masses swarm. Fantastic and informative guide.
Outstanding! Our guide did a fantastic job of getting us into and through a very crowded gallery, and she was extremely knowledgeable. The breakfast was excellent!
