Our guide Tomaz spoke good English. Tour felt very rushed and overprice. We did skip the lines as advertised, and the security check was easy and hassle free. We didn't get to see all the art or get to look as them in detail. Tour mainly focuses on the masterpieces. Audio guide system worked and were easy to return.

The tour was decent and covered the more famous art pieces. But the tour intensely covers the evolution of religious freedom through art and is not a comprehensive explanation of neither the gallery nor the Renaissance. In addition the tour guide gave zero pauses for questions. The tour itself was almost a stream of consciousness and was not very personable.

First The ticket pickup instructions is not well written. The instructions clearly to pickup ticket before coming to the meeting point. I lined up at the ticket office until someone tell me I will get it from the guild. Then I show him the instructions and he told me again to goto the meeting point. I showed up at the meet point the guys was not there. He was late I finally find out it is the right place when some other customers are there waiting as well. At the end I don't need to pickup ticket before meeting. The guide had our ticket. Second, our guide Michael is in a rush. He cover most of the important artists and all sudden he tell us the time is up. Please hand over the headphones. I understand there are too much to cover in 2hr. But he could give us a better outline to what he can cover. Nevertheless, the tour was great. Please notice unless you know your art history. Guide is really recommended for Uffizi Gallery.
