Elvis is absolutely fantastic! I am so happy we had the opportunity to do the tour with him, and happy to see the tickets at the academy was cheaper than we expected since it was off-season. Elvis was very detailed and explained Michelangelo in a way that makes you appreciate art even more and the life of Michelangelo as well. I will be taking more tours with him in the future. You can see his passion of art come out and he answers all of the questions one has. Thank you for educating us and gracing us with your knowledge Elvis, until next time!

Elvis went above and beyond in ensuring that I personally get to experience and have a great experience at the Accademia. I had encountered a personal glitch and yet he remained very accommodating, patient and gracious. He was very personal and thoughtful in the manner he does his job and even injects humor in the midst of explaining the history behind the creation of the greatest sculptor in the word. He is very knowledgeable and encourages questions from tourists making the experience absolutely worth it. If anyone wants to know about the history of Florence, I give Elvis my seal of approval. You guys won’t regret it. It will be worth your every penny.

Elvis was a wonderful guide! Very personal and knowledgeable. The tour is short and to the point so it gives you time to explore the gallery on your afterwards with good knowledge of what you’re looking at. 10/10 would recommend!!

I’ve been on a lot of tours in my life and I have to say that the tour with Elvis was hands-down the best tour I’ve ever been on. He is so personable, kind, very intelligent, and knows all the background on the David.
