I took the tour in Spanish and found both guides to be very helpful. I appreciate the small group your setting as well.

What can I say? David is worth waiting for....even with the 'skip the line' tour. Guides for both museums were excellent...very knowledgeable and pleasant.

We got really lucky here. Our group was small, maybe 18 people and both the Accadamia and the Uffizi were practically empty. The David is even more wondrous in person than in photos and you can get really close and walk all the way around, admiring the genius of Michelangelo. Don't miss visiting the 'workshop' while there. It's fascinating. After looking at the David, go back to the beginning and look again at the early works, the Torso etc. It's amazing to see the progression
The Uffizi is a gem, everywhere you look is a feast for the eyes. I came mostly for the Botticellis and they did not disappoint! Seriously, brought me to tears. Again, I had a totally unobstructed view thanks to no crowds and our guides timing.
We also walked the Bridge of Sighs - there were just three of us! Imagine! With no one else around it was easy to imagine what it must have been like to take that walk as a prisoner. The tiny corridor, the cells with no light, the heavy iron bars all contributed to the feeling of impending doom.

These two places came to life for me with the way our tour guide explained the various areas that we got to see. If history had been taught to me like this at school I would have had a much better education. Of course to see and hear the background of Michelangelo's David and his background was extremely interesting but even more so for me was what we learned of the Medici's and their influence on Florence history. It was good to have a break between tours which allowed time to refresh the senses before commencing the Uffizi Gallery tour. Totally recommend!

Both sites were well organised despite the obvous crowds. Both our guides were very good and explained well what we were looking at without getting too involved. For people wanting detail they were able to discuss any of the matters raised. We totally enjoyed it and certainly recommend both tours.
