Good information and good guide

The tour to Academia Gallery and walking tour with Francesco was fantastic. He was very good with his knowledge and answering questions. Thank you. There was too much talking with the second guide in the third part of the tour at Uffizi though. Just a little introduction would have been enough. Too much talking takes away from appreciating all that Uffizi has to offer.

A wonderful tour with an excellent city guide

The tour consists of three parts. A 60 minute tour of the Galleria dell'Accademia where you can admire Michelangelo's David in the original. After a lunch break, you continue with a city tour in which you get to know all the important historical and architectural highlights of the city. The day is rounded off by a 2-hour tour of the Uffizi Gallery. I took part in the tour on July 20th. participated and am really enthusiastic! The city guide led through the day with a lot of charm and expertise, was always able to answer questions well and also told one or the other anecdote. A big advantage is that you save a lot of time by the guides buying the tickets in advance (included in the price) and walking through the express entrance as a group. The tour is highly recommended if, like me, you have little time in Florence.
