Still have to wait in queue!

Our tour guide Rosa was fabulous, knew her stuff and encouraged the group to get involved in answering questions., very engaging and interesting. Bit disappointed about having to queue to get in with all the other tourists that bought the same tickets from other companies, so wasn’t really skipping the line!

Our guide Geanette was amazing and very passionate about the history and art. She really brought it to life for my group. The group was friendly and fun to “tour” with. Hint: Make sure to meet the guides at the entrance of the museum. Several groups meet at this location and it can be confusing.

Reserve your tickets well ahead of time and save money.

We were unable to purchase tickets for the day we were in Florence on our own, so we purchased this tour , thinking it came with tickets. It did not. We had to pay for the tour and the tickets. The tour check point was difficult to find because our contact person was not there for at least ten minutes past meeting time. I felt like the guide was dragging out the time to visit the David to make sure the time requirement was made, she was also difficult to understand. The David and Michaeangelo’s other works were amazing.

We had the pleasure of doing this tour with Rosa. I would highly recommend booking this tour-we learnt so much in the hour or so we had with Rosa and definitely would not have had this experience if we had booked to go to the gallery on our own. Thankyou so much Rosa for the memorable experience!

Claudio have such an amazing insight into Michelangelo! I learned so much from this tour and would love to take it again. He gave so much information relating to Michelangelo’s life, artistic process, and sheer genius. Loved it!

Great 1 hour tour

Wonderful! At first I didn’t realize that the price shown on aviator was only for the guide and the tickets had to be bought separately- so the price was actually double that what is shown- but it was great to skip the long lines and listen to interesting facts about the sculptures and Michelangelo. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

The Amazing David

Seeing David was amazing. Tour guide was great but an hour is enough time to see and hear about it. Glad we went but would choose a shorter tour.

A MUST tour for visiting the Academia Gallery/David!

Elvis is the most incredible guide we had had while in Florence. We wish we had had him for the 2hr Uffizi gallery tour as well so definitely book that if you can! He is so knowledgable and passionate about the works of Michelangelo and that time period, and has a lot of funny anecdotes about the history about the Medici family as well. Go on this tour! So worth it so skip the line alone, but Elvis was the best.

Elvis was our tour guide and he did an excellent job! We ended up with a private tour because we came during off season and had booked the last tour of the day. Elvis spoke excellent English and gave great information regarding the pieces in the gallery we would have walked right past without him.
