We went on this half day tour on our first full day in Florence. We checked in at Piazzale Montelungo and waited until 8:30. Then we began to load the bus. We were given this tour, so we didn't really know what to expect. We thought we were just going to the Accademia gallery, but that was only part of it. As we drove through the city we were given excellent information on the history that we passed. Our first stop was at Piazzale Michelangelo, where we had about 25 mins to take pictures and admire the view. We had been there before, so we took advantage of being able to sit at the café and have a coffee. Then we were driven further and eventually drove through Firesole, which is elevated higher than Florence. It was a quaint little town that we literally drove through and then back down, but the views on the way up and down were spectacular. Then we drove through and back to Florence and did the Accademia tour, after a brief walk to get there. There was a short wait to get our group in. It was sweltering outside, and with no AC inside, again it was extremely hot, and there were a lot of people in the museum as well. Our guide instructed us on many of the sculptures and art. It was great. We were there for about 45 minutes, maybe an hour. That was long enough to see everything and take photos. Then we walked to the Duomo and were instructed more on the Baptistry and the church. Then the tour was over. Our guide (sorry, forget her name) was really good. We took this tour on July 6, so hopefully she gets credit for being good.

We went on a tour of the Accademia Gallery with Guido. He was very passionate and brought the gallery alive for us.

The tour was 3 hours long. It took over 2 hours to finally get inside the Accademia Gallery, where we spent about half an hour. This was the second part of the tour. The last part of the tour included very briefly walking around the Duomo but we did not go inside. The tour description should have been more clear that it did not include visiting inside. There were two other participants that also thought we were going to go inside the Duomo. I would not recommend this tour. You do not see enough during the three-hour period and the travel to/from the first portion to the Gallery takes too long. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.
