Both on time, some queuing but not too bad. Guides were excellent

We were delighted to be able to Skip the Line at the Accademia and Uffizi Gallery and the guides were very informative. Will recommend it to my friends when visiting Florence.

Excellent tour. Both guides were very good with lots of information. It was very crowded at both places and this was a good way to get through both museums and see everything you need to. One piece of information would be helpful though because even with the skip the line you are going to have to wait in line at the Accademia. There is always a line even for groups.

A great tour, with such knowledgeable guides, Federica for Accademia, and Deborah for Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio. A must with skip the line otherwise you wait for hours.

This seems to me to be the only way to see both of these fine buildings - the lines outside for tickets are daunting. We met first at the Accademia where our fantastic guide introduced us to the work of Michelangleo. I didn't catch his name but he was enthusiastic and knowledgable and a delight to be with. Of course the David was splendid as were the other pieces of art. Initally we were to meet at 4:30 at the Uffizi but due to an early closing we met at 2:45 - I think this might have been why it was so very crowded according to our guide. Our afternoon guide was a young woman who knew her art and passed along her enthusiasm. The pieces we viewed were wonderful, but what surprised me was the beauty of the building itself and the fabulous views. The tour also benefits from the use of audio whisperers so you can wander a bit away from the guide while still hearing him/her. Skipping the line and spending time with a guide who knows the art is well worth it.

We really enjoyed this day. The 2 tours were split so it gave us time to do our own things in the middle of the day. Our tour guide was informative and friendly.
