Our small groups also respect the sites visited by keeping numbers down in overcrowded galleries and sites. And lastly, we want to actively contribute to the preservation of the art and sites in a real way. And we include you in our mission.

Wonderful Tour of Renaissance Art
Patricia_K
, Jul 2022
If you are visiting Florence, this tour is a great way to see the great works of art of the Renaissance without wandering around lost at the Uffizi! The art is truly awe-inspiring! Our tour guide, Cossetta, was very knowledgeable about the history of the art and the beautiful city of Florence. Highly recommend the skip the line option!!

First time in Florence, first in Italy and I wanted to get an ultimate experience of the city. I loved this tour!!! Yulia is an amazing tour guide. I loved the small group setting, I loved that it being hot, she was so considerate of taking breaks, I loved that she was full of knowledge, and I loved going through the tiny streets. I highly recommend this tour. You get the best of the Academia and Uffizi and learn about the city itself. Thank you Viator! Thank you Yulia!

Our guide Yulia was so informative at the Accademia and Uffizi galleries and points in between while walking around Florence. Her knowledge and perspective of the art she showed us was so spectacular. We are visiting Florence because my daughter is an art major, and she wanted to see and learn more about these two galleries. Our guide definitely was all we could have hoped for, and then some. I highly recommend this tour. We never waited in a queue for long to enter either gallery. It was amazing.

Our guide Julia was outstanding. She knew so much about all the masterpieces and brought them all to life for us. It was a wonderful experience. My only suggestion would be a 10 min coffee break as this tour is long , very intense, and a lot to take in.

Rafael did a great job of sharing the history of Florence and the masterpieces found in the Academia and the Uffuzi. He took his time and never made us feel rushed. Grazie!

NOT GOOD
Vivian_R
, Jun 2022
The tour guide was hard to hear and understand. She did NOT wear the microphone correctly so we either could NOT hear at all because it was too far or would get feedback from it being too close. 'Skip the line" lines were long & didn't move very fast (other lines seemed to move passed us), we had problems with our tix @ Uffizi, we did NOT get our water/gelato or souvenirs as advertised and when I asked tour guide about it she had no idea of what I was talking about!

Guide was most knowledgeable. Was told small group - less than ten. Actually was twelve and we had to wait at museum because did not have enough tickets - seems there is confusion between booking agency and tour guides - need better communication

Mediocre Tour Experience
Elinor_K
, Jun 2022
Our tour was fine, but I would not recommend the experience to a friend or do it again. The tour went on longer than advertised despite us asking out tour guide to expedite the experience a bit. She was a bit forceful in making us take picture at almost every painting we stopped at.

We signed up for a small-group “skip the line” tour. Unfortunately, the organisers over-subscribed the tours, meaning each guide had approx. 12-15 in a group, making it a less personal experience (we were advised it would be no more than 10-12 and was originally advised our group would be seven-strong). It was horribly unorganised; we waited over 45 mins in 29C heat as streams of people headed into the Accademia in front of us. The guides had no idea what was going on in the scrum outside of the gallery (not their fault), other than the concept of “skip the line” doesn’t always mean what it says on the tin. We were lucky to have a good, if large, group of people. The guide was knowledgeable regarding art history, but it was clear he was extremely angry at the situation he was placed in by the organisers. TLDR: avoid this company at all costs; book ahead and do it yourself.
