  • The beauty seen in the Accademia Gallery brought me to tears. Our guide Fabio was knowledgeable, professional, and kind. I loved this tour.

  • The tour organizer ran around looking for more people to add to our group, so our group kept expanding. he provided us with head sets that failed to work within 2 minutes after entering the Gallery. Our guide while knowledgeable spent an inordinate amount of time on the various art works. However a trip to see the David is a must

  • Did get to skip the huge lineup but still waited about 49 minutes to get in. After seeing David you are on your own.

  • We LOVED the David, as many people do. And our tour guide was pleasant and knowledgable. But the crowds were terrible and the tour group too big. It was hard to hear and our earpieces didn't work well. Please consider over-the-ear earpieces or better speakers.

  • Recommend it to any one who is interested in the good arts. The statute of David is really magnificent and imposing. Even though the tour was only for one hour the lady guide did her best to give us a fair description of the various artifacts. As a negative comment I would point out that the guide was late for almost 10 minutes.

  • Can't go to Florence without seeing the statue of David. It is quite impressive. The tour was short but skipping the lines make it worth while. The tour guide was knowledgeable and answered all the questions.

  • It was hard to find the person who was leading the tour and our 16 year old did not have a ticket, even tho we had paid for it. Just a little confusing, but worth getting in without too larger a line.

  • Getting into the Accademia Gallery without a two hour wait made this tour worthwhile. And while the tour guide was very knowledgeable on the art in the gallery, the radios worked poorly and my husband just gave up listening to her. The tour itself covered the art thoroughly but the gallery was so crowded, it was difficult to get to appreciate it. The guide was so soft spoken, it was difficult to keep up with her - also she only raised her arm and it was not easy to follow her.

  • The radio sets make a fundamental difference with the quality of any of the tours. At the beginning of this tour, 1/3 to 1/2 of the group could not hear the tour operator and the response I was given was to let the company know almost as if they had no control over the headsets. I cannot believe the company is allowed to continue giving a tour that people cannot hear.

  • The tour was good. But for our family we would have enjoyed purchasing tickets ahead of time and walking through the museum on our own.
