    The guide Federica was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, very pleasant and very patient. Her explanation was very interesting and enlightening. She also made sure we were well taken care of in all aspects as the museums were very crowded. We didn’t have to wait long for our tickets and we got into the museums very quickly. The experience would be better if the visit to Uffizi is done after L’’Academia so that we can be left to continue to explore Uffizi on our own after the guided tour.

    Chiara was a wonderful guide, her training as an art historian shines through… but she also knew how to adapt herself to my tempo and we had a lot of laughs and she answered all my ridiculous questions (NSFW). I learned but left with more questions which is the mark of a great teacher :) And she takes great photos. Thank you Chiara for a fabulous day!

    The two tours were very informative and our guide was very knowledgeable. The group was small so it was easy to get around the museums. I highly recommend this tour.
