We arrived in Florence without having booked tickets to see David, but looking at the length of the ques decided that we didn't want to waste our valuable time waiting in line to get into the Academia. We saw the ad for this tour and booked via their web site two days before the tour. All in all it was a great option, for €29 we got to walk straight in, I mean straight in there were other tour groups waiting at the the reserved and tour groups entry point and we just walked straight past them. We had a guide, Clare who was very very good, providing us with lots of information on all of the attractions in the gallery, including David.
After the guided tour which went for about an hour we were free to walk around on our own for as long as we liked. I understand that the cost is high compared to a pre reserved ticket which is about €11.50, but on top of that you will need to hire an audio guide, so when you add in that on this tour you get a real tour guide all in all this is a great option for those who are time poor.
