What people are saying about Uffizi Gallery

Valentina, our guide, was wonderful. She was very informative, and clearly passionate about her lovely city. She well beyond simply showing us around and pointing out the sights. In a short time she gave us a sense of the history of Firenze and some of its local culture.. With so much to see, 2 hours is not nearly enough, but if you are pressed for time as we were, this tour gave us a good feel of the central part of the city. It also allowed us to see the amazing statue of David. While quite busy inside, we did not feel rushed at all.

Annette was fantastic! So knowledgeable and enjoyable. She spoke excellent English. The 2 hour tour was just the right amount of time to hit the highlights of Florence without feeling rushed. It was very crowded at the museum, but we only waited a few minutes.

We had Patricia as a guide. She spoke English well and explained everything we saw in good detail. Timing was excellent. We truly enjoyed this tour and would definitely recommend the tour to others.

Our guide was Stefano. He was just terrific - very knowledgeable, patient and answered all the questions. I just wanted it to be longer. Highly recommend.

very informative tour with Stephanie, gave lit of historical information and very engaging
