Our guides were amazing. In particular, Antonio who was our guide at the Accademia was outstanding. Our time together flew by. He was funny, insightful and always very interesting. I did not think it was possible to spend two hours in just two rooms and learn so much.
Anthony A., USA
Both our guides (Frederica for Academia and Simone for Uffizi) were both very personable and knowledgeable and we gained great insight to the amazing works of art we saw. We would highly recommend these tours as you learn so much more about what you are seeing then you ever will just reading placards. The skip-the-line part was simply a bonus.
"Both guides were very good, especially the Accademia guide. My wife and I do indeed feel these are must do tours when visiting Florence."
