    Our guide was really very good

    Our guide was knowledgeable and exceptionally kind in helping my friend who had difficulty in walking. I would recommend our guide and this tour to anyone looking for an informative yet not exhausting experience. It was just the right length and the time of day was perfect. The only glitch was the mix up about the audio guides but that was soon resolved.

    Great tour with a passionate and knowledgeable guide.

    The Galleria degli Uffizi is an incredible museum and it's collection is simply massive. It would be almost impossible to see everything, and that's where a great guide can be of help. Ours was very knowledgeable, having studied art, and clearly had a passion for it. He used our time at the museum to weave a story about the loss of the classical art after the fall of Rome to it's rebirth and elevation during the Renaissance. He was able to point out the subtle cues and hidden messages in the pieces he had opted to highlight. The tour was also well organized, with an easy to find meeting point, radios to better hear the guide and a well oiled organization. I highly recommend it.

    A real time saver

    My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very informative and chose a good selection of paintings covering the main masters and a good variety of others. On 1.5 we hours we saw what it would otherwise taken an entire day to find. The Uffizzi Gallery is huge. We highly recommend the tour.
