Impressive art collection. Very informative historic information. Most see.
Eddie_L, Mar 2023
I really enjoyed all the historic information given by the guide. Wonderful art collection. A most see!
Michello at Uffizi gallery saved the tour.
Lauren_M, Mar 2023
Unfortunately our first part of the tour of the accademia was a bilingual tour of Spanish & English. Reading the description we thought we were getting an English only guide. It was impossible to follow as information was rushed. 2 stars. Uffizi was a different story, Michello( I hope I got his name right, he was a history teacher) was absolutely phenomenal, the knowledge, stories and his enthusiasm was amazing. If you could book him for the Uffizi gallery tour you could never go wrong, he is the only reason this tour got 4 stars. He is 5 stars
Fun for all, not just art lovers!
Angela_A, Feb 2023
The museum tours were fun and mostly informative—to be honest we couldn’t hear much of what our guide was saying during the Accademia tour. I’d recommend having them use mics in the future! At Uffizi we were the only ones and our tour guide was as entertaining as he was knowledgeable.
Amazing galleries with some of the most important works
Jessamy_P, Jan 2023
Two amazing galleries with some of the best renaissance artworks and sculptures. A must see for anyone coming to Florence. As always, tours may seem a bit rushed given how much you can see in these galleries, so might be a good idea to also set aside time later to see more or to remain behind to explore more
A really FUN tour of art?
Daniel_J, Oct 2022
Our guide was an art history graduate and it was quite evident, in that she covered 200 years of art in chronological order. She was so informative, insightful and even funny as we learned about the art, artists and the culture if the times. It was good to be rich.
Must see experience
Susan_B, Oct 2022
Both the Accademia and Uffizi were wonderful experiences. Our tour guide Laura was very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended!
Great way to do both museums in one day!
Valerie_L, Oct 2022
We don’t normally do tours, but because we wanted to see these two museums and only had one day, this worked out very well for us! We did Accademia in the morning and uffizzi in the afternoon. We had our own lunch and shopping time between. Both tour guides were so sweet and told great stories about the artists and the art. Learned some really interesting information! Highly recommend!
2 great tour guides. Very...
bruce_p, Sep 2022
2 great tour guides. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Could tell they truly enjoy art and history.
Awesome fun learning experience!!
Maria_D, Jul 2022
Our morning guide was informative with a great sense of humor. We learned many new facts about the artists and their sculptures. The afternoon guide was informative and engaging.
Enjoyable, yet disorganized
Tracy_M, Jul 2022
The tour of each museum was very memorable and informative. The meet up at each museum was very disorganized and confusing. The first tour started late, which had us scurrying the make it to the next museum in time. Seeing the statue of David in person made it worth of of the trouble.
Great tour
Viktoriya_A, Jun 2022
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and delivered information very well. I believe that the tour is the way to visit these two museums unless you are an expert in arts.
Well worth doing
Amanda_M, Jun 2022
Guides brought the experience in both the Accademia and Uffizi Galleries to a higher level. So friendly and knowledgeable. Skipping the long queues in the heat was appreciated too!
Small group, excellent experience
Temara_B, Jun 2022
Our audio tours of both the Galleria D'Accademia and Uffizi were excellent - our small group of 7 experienced both learning a lot and seeing all the main pieces. Thanks for a fantastic morning.
Osteria dei Baroncelli 👎
Paula_C, May 2022
Tour guide’s were excellent. Viator/CAF not organized. Reservation was made at Osteria dei Baroncelli restaurant in Florence. Rude/horrible service. 35min given for dinner, while eating came up and cleared table stating done
Nice way to see main 2 museums in Florence
Stephanie_R, May 2022
We chose the option for a 9:30 tour of the Academia (1.5 hr) then 3:30 tour of Ufizzi (1.5 hr) to give ourselves a mid-day break. I recommend that, as you can get museum fatigue if you don't have a break! Both museums were beautiful, and both our guides were very knowledgeable about the art and history. Worth the money to have someone lead you through and touch on the most important pieces, and there was the ability to stay longer after the official tour if you wanted.
Get a guide!!
Jennifer_A, Apr 2022
The Academia and Uffizi are not to be missed if you go to Florence! They are both spectacular! My 3 stars are not the Academia or the Uffizi, but the tour itself. Upon arrival to Academia, we located the tour operator, received our tickets and waited in line for entrance. When I asked the tour operator about a guide, she stated we did not purchase a guided tour. Which is obviously not the case with this tour. We then paid 5 euros for 4 of us to have the audio headset. When we arrived at Uffizi, we had a guide but the headsets did not work. The guide was absolutely incredible!!! She talked to our small group and is very knowledgeable about Uffizi. Unfortunately some of our group members were not able to hear all of her accounts of the art. So 3 stars for the tour, but don’t miss Academia and Uffizi!
Skip the line is WORTH it!
Crystal_R, Mar 2022
Skip the line really is a must ! These sites are very popular with tourists and to get the most important highlights of them a tour guide is essential.
Great Tour
Joyen_G, Feb 2022
Tour was great! Our guide Laura was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun with her detailed knowledge of the artist, painting, and sculpture. She explained in details each piece of art which made learning fun! It makes me want to learn more about the artists and their work. Thank you Laura! From the ladies of Hawaii!
Great Day!
Amanda_Z, Dec 2021

Seeing the suffixing was very enjoyable. Our tour guide was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable on the exhibits and local history. I would definitely recommend the tour to avoid long lines and to gain valuable insight into the unique exhibits.
