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!
Very nice to get in before the crowds. Gained a greater appreciation of the David than we imagined.
Great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable.
The best thing about this tour was getting in the museum early before the crowds took over. It was an incredible experience to stand with David with almost no one else there. The guide was ok, but you really didn't need guiding and the real value was just being there early. We did take advantage of the breakfast voucher afterwards and it was delicious and near by. I would do this again in a heart beat and would recommend it to anyone who asked.
My guide was lovely. She really made the offerings in the museum come to life. It was a memorable tour.
What a wonderful day! This was our first day in Florence so it set the tone for our entire trip. We were met in front of the Academia by our guide and were able to enter swiftly and efficiently. After a few short moments discussing some of the other art in the entryway we got to turn the corner and see the David. Our guide had lots of good information to share. It might have been nice to have a few moments to take pictures before many others entered the gallery before the information was given, but it was still just a great experience. Afterward we took our vouchers and had croissants and coffee at a nearby cafe. It was nice to have early access and a peek at the beautiful art with good information and secrets about the pieces to boot. Highly recommend!
