Skip the Line: Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery Tour
Reviewed by: Sherri B, August 2014
Two great tours and we had wonderful guides. Rosalind (@Academia) has 30 plus years experience and is a master story teller. Seeing David in person was worth it's weight in gold.
The Uffizi was also great. However, it was very crowded and sometimes difficult getting close enough to the art that was being described. William was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed seeing many famous works of art.

Two fabulous tours of two very important art galleries/museums. In the morning, Sue (I think that was her name - she is an older women with a British accent, I think she may have been an Art/History teacher - she was quite passionate about the history of what we were seeing), took us through the Accademia tour and regaled the group with a great deal of Michelangelo history. I enjoyed her detail and passion very much. In the afternoon, William, provided us with an extensive art lesson on some of the very important paintings hanging in the Uffizi Gallery. Both guides gave me the information/knowledge to really appreciate, understand and translate the meaning of the works of art that I was viewing. I recommend this tour and Sue and William.

This tour, although very long, is worth the sore feet! The guide was very informative and enthusiastic which made the journey round the museums very enjoyable. The statue of David became one of the highlights of our holiday! I would say the price is spot on, it's worth it just for the queue jump!

It was a long day but we really enjoyed it. The guide was knowledgeable and took time to answer questions. I came away from those tours with a better understanding of the art and it's development given historical events at the time the art was created.

Great tour with two spectacular tour guides. These tours are a must when you are in Florence. You will need a good camera for all of the pictures you will be taking.
