Wonderful Learning Experience at Galleria dell'Accademie
Sep 2021
We made a reservation for this tour at the last minute. We decided on a Friday morning to visit the Accademia Gallery, but we weren't able to purchase general admission tickets. But we were able to sign up for this tour. And we are so glad we did. Our tour guide, Lori, made Michelangelo come alive for us. She knows the history well but it's also obvious that she loves sharing her knowledge with people like us. I came away with a better understanding of Michelangelo and the challenges he faced than I have ever had before. Thanks, Lori!

Lori (the tour guide) set the scene with Michelangelos life and expertly pointed out interesting details of his life and work and presenting details that are not displayed in the Accademia on a tablet was a nice touch. Highly recommend tour!

A great insight to the history of the sculptures at the Academia Museum
Sep 2020 • Couples
Our guide, Francesca, was super friendly and knowledgable. You could tell how passionate she was about the history of the sculptures and we had a lot of fun exploring the museum with her.

Our tickets included entry via a shorter queue - we were told that it was quieter than usual and that the tour groups are limited to a maximum of 5 people due to coronavirus considerations. The venue had taken care to ensure it was safe and had implemented appropriate social distancing procedures - we felt safe and well looked after the whole time we were there.

We also were given an ear piece so we could hear our guide more clearly.

We learnt so much more than if we had attended the venue without a guide - it was well worth it for us.

Alda and the tour

Were fortunate enough to be the only people on this tour and the museum was nearly empty. Alda was amazing and passionate. I have a higher appreciation for the David after this tour. Pictures do not do this statue justice. I highly recommend this tour.
