The tour was a great way to experience the Accademia and the Uffizi Galleries, plus include a short sightseeing walking tour of Florence. Our guides for the walking tour and the Uffizi were knowledgeable and engaging. Although informative, the walking tour was very rushed, and it seems more time could have been spent on that aspect of the tour. Unfortunately, at least 45 minutes was lost at BOTH of the museums, standing in line to gain entrance. This is probably beyond the tour operator’s control, but losing one and a half hours (out of a 6 hour tour) to simply standing in line was disappointing.

La Accademia gallery is amazing, the David by Michelangelo just perfect, our tour guide was Valentina, she is great, speaks English and Spanish, and a lot of knowledge transmitted, book a tour with her. Uffizi gallery is just impressive, if you love art or just want to visit one of most visited galleries in the wold this is the place for you, our tour guide was Oksana, she was amazing, her knowledge about Florence arts, the history of the city and few other recommendations make your visit just great, her vibe and energy makes the tour really interesting, definitely book a tour with her, for sure we will comeback, thanks Oksana!.

Paula our guide was great, she was very well informed and did her best to keep the experience as smooth as possible. Just keep in mind that if you come during the high season there’s a possibility the schedule can change (like it did with us). Our entry to Academia got delayed, but we were able to go later. Just keep this in mind and avoid booking any more activities on the same day.
