Marzia was a fabulous guide on our tour of the Uffizi and Academia. We learned a great deal about the art as well as the history of Florence and Italy. We really enjoyed our tour.

Our Uffizi and Accademia Museums tour with Alessandra (if I remember her name correctly) was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable being a professor at a local university with a PhD. Looking back, I can't imagine trying to navigate all of the amazing artwork in the two galleries without her expertise. We would have missed out on so much!

Our flight was canceled twice and we could not make it for our tour. I tried multiple times to get in touch with Viator to let them know we wanted to cancel or reschedule. They never picked up the phone line and did not answer any of my emails. They charged me for the tour.

During the week that we visited Florence the Accademia was free to the public but closed to tour guides. As a result, our combined Uffizi and Accademia Walking Tour had to be limited to the Uffizi. Fortunately our tour guide did such an excellent job that our disappointment was minimal. His history training was apparent as he responded early on to a question from a member of our group and seeing our response, he decided to orient the tour accordingly. The examples he showed us in numerous paintings and the historical connections clearly demonstrated for us the transitions from medieval to Renaissance art. His explanations of the original building added to our enjoyment. All in all, it was a wonderful morning.

Excellent tour -- just the right amount of people in the group, length of time of tour and information provided!

Our small group tour of the Uffizi and Accademia was exactly what we had hoped for. Our tour guide, Francesca, was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about Florence, the two museums we visited and the art we viewed there. We had 9 people in our group which helped to move through the very crowded museums. Having skip the line access was absolutely essential to avoid a very long wait in the lines that formed outside the museums. It was also very helpful to have earphones to hear our tour guide so that while she was telling us about a particular painting, we could walk around the room and look at other pieces of art but still hear what she had to say. It was also crucial to have a well informed guide who could point out the most prominent pieces at the museum as there is a lot to see. Francesca also provided us with the history and other information about Florence as we walked between the museums. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you are lucky and get Francesca as your tour guide!

Our guide was able to make the most efficient use of our time... showing us all the most appealing works of art. For each one she possessed a depth of knowledge that she was able to communicate to us (novices in the subjects). My wife and i were thoroughly impressed by this tour... especially due to our experienced guide.

Giacomo was a consummate tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and interesting. I feel like I splurged a bit and that I got what I paid for. My mother had said beforehand that the art was the most interesting and important part of her trip to Italy, and so I am extremely grateful to have taken this tour.

Having access without waiting in...

Having access without waiting in lines at the museums is definitely an advantage. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting history of the art and artifacts we observed. Walking between the two museums provided an opportunity to see some of the other historical aspects of Florence and added significantly to the experience.
