    It was fine.
    Stacey_S, Mar 2023
    This tour was fine. I would choose a different tour if I was to go it again. Our tour guide had a thick accent so I caught most but missed some too. She told us about the music room, the paintings and David. This museum is small. Maybe book a tour that does both.
    Take this tour! You’ll love it.
    L_S, Mar 2023
    This was a great way to see David. Our guide explained so many things that we wouldn’t have known if we went to see on our own. Walking right in and not waiting in line was great as it gave us more time to do other things in a city filled with so much art!
    Julia was a very thorough...
    Janet_M, Mar 2023
    Julia was a very thorough guide with her in depth information of the history of Michaelangelo and his David sculpture. She painted very clear pictures of who he was and what his life was like. Her English was excellent and her descriptions of the sculptures were intelligent. We learned a lot.
    Would Highly Recommend
    Kimberley_H, Jan 2023
    Our tour guide, Julia, was very easy to understand and was also very informative. The focus of our tour was on David and the amount of time was just right. We enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend.
    The best way to see David
    qw7jh7bzzd, Dec 2022
    Our Lovely tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was the perfect amount of time — not too long, never boring, and we had plenty of time to take photos and see the artwork up close
    Great 1 hours experience focusing on David
    Chng_F, Dec 2022
    The one hour tour focusing on David. Our guide Julia is really good, who inspire you to pick up the book on MichelAngelo and David.
    We paid $50 per person...
    rmnbd9z4hf, Nov 2022
    We paid $50 per person for 6 of us so we wouldn’t have to stand in line AND we had to stand in line outside of the museum. I felt taken advantage of.
    Tour guide was humorous...
    Cassandra_A, Oct 2022
    Tour guide was humorous and fun. Knew quite a bit about the museum Highlighted hus favorite arts of work in great detail
    Amazing gallery, good tour
    jim_b, Oct 2022
    This was a good tour. Based on what it looks like it would cost to just buy tickets for entry yourself - the extra cost to skip lines and have an informative guide felt worth it. We liked it, very good.
    Perfect Tour!!
    Angela_M, Sep 2022
    The tour was excellent! The meeting location was easy to find and we did not have to wait in line at all. The tour guide was incredible and his English was perfect! He added so much history and depth to the tour and made this an amazing experience for us! Highly recommended!!
    Great tour
    Johnny_B, Jul 2022
    The Birth of Venus, La Primavera & other Botticellis were the highlights, a very knowledgeable tour guide.
    A good, easy tour
    Mick_L, Jul 2022
    The tour was good and the guide was knowledgeable. We'd never seen David and this was our aim for the tour. The location to meet up was easy, right across the road. There are a few seats, a toilet and water to buy. You can also leave big bottles (mine was metal) which can't be taken in. You get to skip the line which is a big part of the value. It was hot so this was really good with 3 kids. Our guide was good and interesting. My only negative was that we got through security, walked in, went around a corner, sat down and David was at the end of the corridor. It was a bit of an anti-climax to see it. I'd rather either have an intro in another room and then walk around for the big reveal. There is not much else of interest in the museum though. A bit of art, some busts of Michaelangelo and some musical instruments. I did like seeing David and it is impressive. So it was a good tour but I wouldn't say 'wow, definitely do it'.
    Great tour
    Dawn_B, Jul 2022
    Seeing the David. Also our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. I would highly recommend this tour.
    Florence is a mad house, and given that, tour was well done
    Richard_K, Jul 2022
    A little hectic, but that's Florence in the summer. Well organized and presented by Rosa, who was knowledgeable. Easy to find, which was great with all the crowds around.
    excellent tour
    Elizabeth_S, Jun 2022
    The tour was well organized and the guide was informative. She explained the art in the context of the history.
    Not worth the cost- terrible audio devices
    Sarah_P, Jun 2022
    Terrible audio devices that made hearing the type guide above all the background noise very difficult. This was also not a small tour- even the guide remarked how big the group was- around 20+people. Save yourself most of the cost and find a vendor to purchase the skip the line tickets- also, you'll still stand in line... just a shorter line. About half of this group returned our devices back and did our own thing on this.
    Not worth it!
    Monica_B, Jun 2022
    The whole process was a mess, we waited 20 min for our guide and then had to stand in a long line. There was confusion in the group about tickets and ultimately we gave back headsets and went on our own. Also “small group” means up to 30.
    Jenny is super fun,...
    Nilce_A, Jun 2022
    Jenny is super fun, knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Florence and the marvelous art created in it. She is incredibly nice and charming. She answered all the questions and made sure what we were learning was understood. Will definitively pick another tour in the fire as long as Jenny is leading it!
    Excellent museum
    Todd_M, Jun 2022
    This museum was so interesting and so exciting to see Michelangelo's sculpture of David. Our tour guide was excellent and knowledgable.
    Nathaniel_H, Jun 2022
    A little chaotic getting the tickets and set up, but our tour guide Rosa was amazing. Knew everything about the David and was so good with our kids. Really enjoyed the tour with her.
