Loved our guide and skipping the main line!

Meeting spot is directly across from the museum, so very easy. Our guide, Francesca was friendly, energetic, and enjoyable. She made our short wait in line go quickly with introductions and the tour was very well designed to give us what we wanted most (Michaelangelo!), orient us to the rest, then turn us loose to enjoy what we wanted (for us it was the instruments gallery). She also gave us a great tip for our last day in Florence. We had wanted to see Galileo’s tomb in the church of Santa Croce but it looked like no tickets were available on line. She assured us we would be able to get in without a long line and tipped us off that it is the most beautiful interior of any church in Florence. Thanks to her we had a great visit to Santa Croce!

Enriched my visit and made it more memorable

Our guide (on June 16 11 am group 2 English tour) was lovely. She was friendly, smiling and laughing with us a lot, helpful with answering questions, and really knows her stuff! Her tour was thoughtful, interesting, and you can tell she’s passionate about art and art history. I learned so much and it made the visit so much richer, deeper, and more meaningful. It certainly made the visit more memorable and I will always keep with me that experience and what I learned. It really makes you appreciate even more the history and culture of Italy. I highly recommend it!

The tour was very informative as well as entertaining

Francesca was amazing, articulate and very knowledgeable. As she guided us through the Galleria dell’Accademia she gave us a great overview on the various works of art, particularly the David, where she spent the most time speaking about the sculptor Michaelangelo and his masterpiece. She provided a detailed account of the Renaissance period and the art history of that time. The tour was exactly what we had hoped for and would definitely recommend it to others.

Purchasing this ticket was the right call!

We purchase our tickets ahead of time and WOW did it make for a great experience! We went to the pick up location, got our tickets, then crossed the narrow street and went right into the museum. Did not have to wait on the long line or stand in the 100 degree weather. This is a must!

Wonderful and informative tour about the life and art of Michelangelo

Wonderful tour, very fascinating and I learned several new things about both Michelangelo and his piece David. I did feel bad though that half the tour group left as soon as we saw the David. Stick it out for the full tour! It was worth it
