The guide Angelino was so passionate about the paintings and the statue of David. He made us really understand the renaissance period and the genius of the artists. The 2nd guide helped us to see the genius of Leonardo da Vinci showing us how to look at the paintings as they were meant to be seen from lower down looking up. We also came to understand the role of the Medici family in promoting these talented artists. This knowledge really enhanced the pleasure we had of looking at everything else Florence had to offer. Money well spent and an experience never to be forgotten.Reviewed by: H M, February 2014
This was an amazing tour! It is split into 2 parts, at 11:30am and 4:30pm. We had 2 different guides, both were brilliant in weaving historical information about Italy, culture and technique when explaining the art work at these museums.Reviewed by: DEV S, February 2014
We find it is so much more helpful to have a knowledgeable person take us through the museum and give us the history that goes with the art! Loved it!Reviewed by: Gary M, February 2014
Great tour and tour guide, would definitely recommend. When I booked I thought these were two consecutive tours, but there is a break in between the Accademia and Uffizi. Not a problem, because we had a marvelous lunch in between. Our guides provided all the highlights to both museums.Reviewed by: Christy C, January 2014
This was a great experience. Both guides were knowledgable, gave great insights and made the experience a real treat. Plus, we were able to skip the long lines at both museums.Reviewed by: John L, January 2014
This tour was awesome! The "skip the line" feature is great, but even better is the in-depth knowledge shared by our guide, Monica, who ensured that we saw all the major works and also shared many subtle details. Worth the money.Reviewed by: John M, January 2014
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the art, politics, history, and culture of Italy during Michelangelo's life. She was able to "paint" a picture for us about David that made me appreciate this sculpture even more than I ever dreamed of. She pointed out every detail and took the time to walk us entirely around the sculpture. To see David from this perspective was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy!
The Uffizi Gallery Tour was VERY good! We were lucky to tour at a time when there were very little crowds, which allowed us to take the time to really see the artwork up close and in detail without being rushed. The guide was very good: full of information, facts, stories. She knew her art!!
Gave 1st class talk and very informativeReviewed by: MG B, December 2013
Outstanding!!! Prior to making a reservation, I read most of the reviews about these tours, everything said was true. It is a "must see" places to visit. So much history to absorb but because of the guided tour it gave us a lot of info about the art and the artist. Both guides for both tours were highly knowledgeable and entertaining which was an added bonus. Thank you.Reviewed by: Martha O, December 2013
Well, in November there were no lines to skip, but still worth going for. Our guide at the Uffizi was a marvellous character who had us all stiffling our giggles when she told off the security guards for being too noisy. Both tours were just the right balance of information and light hearted banter. One slight niggle was the Uffizi tour started at 4:30 and didn't finish til 6:15, and on that day the Gallery closed at 6:30 giving us just 15 mins to do the remaining 80% that we hadn't seen.Reviewed by: morganicky, December 2013
