Our guide Caterina was super knowledgable (I think she has a Phd in Art History?) I learned so much, and having an expert guide through these two museums was invaluable.

Shortened but excellent tour

During the week that we visited Florence the Accademia was free to the public but closed to tour guides. As a result, our combined Uffizi and Accademia Walking Tour had to be limited to the Uffizi. Fortunately our tour guide did such an excellent job that our disappointment was minimal. His history training was apparent as he responded early on to a question from a member of our group and seeing our response, he decided to orient the tour accordingly. The examples he showed us in numerous paintings and the historical connections clearly demonstrated for us the transitions from medieval to Renaissance art. His explanations of the original building added to our enjoyment. All in all, it was a wonderful morning.

Excellent tour -- just the right amount of people in the group, length of time of tour and information provided!

Our small group tour of the Uffizi and Accademia was exactly what we had hoped for. Our tour guide, Francesca, was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about Florence, the two museums we visited and the art we viewed there. We had 9 people in our group which helped to move through the very crowded museums. Having skip the line access was absolutely essential to avoid a very long wait in the lines that formed outside the museums. It was also very helpful to have earphones to hear our tour guide so that while she was telling us about a particular painting, we could walk around the room and look at other pieces of art but still hear what she had to say. It was also crucial to have a well informed guide who could point out the most prominent pieces at the museum as there is a lot to see. Francesca also provided us with the history and other information about Florence as we walked between the museums. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you are lucky and get Francesca as your tour guide!

Our guide was able to make the most efficient use of our time... showing us all the most appealing works of art. For each one she possessed a depth of knowledge that she was able to communicate to us (novices in the subjects). My wife and i were thoroughly impressed by this tour... especially due to our experienced guide.

Giacomo was a consummate tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and interesting. I feel like I splurged a bit and that I got what I paid for. My mother had said beforehand that the art was the most interesting and important part of her trip to Italy, and so I am extremely grateful to have taken this tour.

Our guide, Daniela is fantastic. You would be hard pressed to find a better one. Extremely knowledgeable, patient and she made the experience memorable. The group was lucky to have her. She is the Keys of Italy Group and you would be wise to ask for her to be your guide. Excellent!

Having access without waiting in lines at the museums is definitely an advantage. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting history of the art and artifacts we observed. Walking between the two museums provided an opportunity to see some of the other historical aspects of Florence and added significantly to the experience.

Loved this tour of Uffizi and Accademia
David M
, Aug 2018
This was a first class tour of both of Florence's top museums!! Our guide was clearly an art expert, though she didn't get too far into artistic debate of fine details, but instead kept the tour fast paced but always intriguing. We got quickly into Uffizi and it's so large it's overwhelming. We kept to the most significant pieces and our guide used a radio with earpiece so the group could all equally hear and she didn't need to shout (another plus). She educated me more on how art styles changed over years, differences between artists, and other significant items of interest. After a short break, off to Accademia and the magnificent statute of David and other important pieces, again after only a short wait. Great way to see a lot in a short time with a very knowledgeable guide who's English was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour.

My cousin and I had a great tour. Our Guide was Elena and she really knew her stuff. Her passion for her city and its treasures enriched the entire tour and group. Keys of Italy and Elena really take the experience of the client seriously. Thank you for a great day! Buy tickets in advance as the lines can get very long.

This tour was amazing. Our guide was so knowledgeable and patient to explain everything to us. We absolutely loved him and felt it was one of the best tours we had in Florence. We went from the Accademia, then through the city, and to the Uffizi with fun stops along the way. Florence is a museum itself and having someone to tell you the backstories and history is gold.

We ended up having a private tour with Ricardo. We were so impressed that the company did not cancel the tour even with only the two of us. Ricardo was AMAZING! His knowledge and passion shown through with all that he shared. This is a tour not to be missed. Wonderful introduction to Florence. We started at the Accademia, followed by a tour of Florence as we made our way to the Uffizi and then ushered through the Uffizi to the great works of art. It is an extraordinary tour and we had very memorable time with Ricardo as our guide. With his guidance, our appreciation for the great works was elevated as our understanding deepened. I would definitely book this tour again. Very impressive.

Our guide Riccardo was awesome...

Our guide Riccardo was awesome! After the Uffizi gallery tour, my wife and I were the only ones that opted for the Accadrmia portion. So Riccardo guided us from the Uffizi gallery through town, past the Duomo, and to the Accademia. He gave us his knowledge of the architecture and history of Florence during the walk, along with the history of the Medici. He showed us one of his favorite REAL Gelato spots, and then made the statue of David by Michelangelo as well as his unfinished works come alive. This was the most informational and personal tour we have ever been on. Thank you very much Riccardo and Keys of Florence, we will be back!
