    Our tour guide Rosa was amazing! She was so informative and passionate about art history. Getting to the meeting point was also easy and staff was so nice! A lot of information in a short time and loved we were able to explore other areas in museum after tour concluded.

    The Accademia Gallery tour was very educational. It has a nice variety of art, including a great musical instrument section. I really enjoyed seeing the unfinished works in marble. It was also quick enough that my feet and legs did not get overly sore from standing still on the hard surfaces. We went through on our own at the end to see the things the guide did not discuss. We started our tour late because the guide waited for a group of people who never showed. People are asked to arrive 15 minutes early, so if they do not show or call, I don’t think they should wait. We ended up having to wait longer because of the number of people in the museum. I think she was rushed because of the delay and had a group right after ours. Our guide was good, but she made a big deal at the end about giving her a good review and don’t personally like that.

    Disclaimer: I am posting the same review for Uffizi and Accademia galleries. Both my wife and I are not interested in art, but a visit to Florence is incomplete without seeing one of these galleries. They are completely different and depend on your interest, but since we are not into art we were confused which one to choose, but eventually ended up going to both :D. In a nutshell, the Uffizi has a lot of paintings and they present them in a chronological order, so it's nice if you want to see the evolution of art in the Renaissance era. The Accademia is basically Michelangelo's David, there's nothing else worth going for. The Uffizi (again, for those not interested in art), in my opinion, is a waste of time if without an audio guide or a tour, preferably the latter. You will need someone to select the main paintings, highlight their details, and tell the stories behind them. But the Accademia can be done on your own because 90% of your time will be staring at David's veins.
