This was the best tour we did in Florence. Well organised, perfectly timed, just the right amount and type of info that a first-time visitor wants to know. Special thanks to our excellent guide Leonardo for guiding us to the most important masterpieces of Uffizi and keeping it interesting and engaging. PS We did the 4pm tour and it was a great time of the day to visit the gallery without the biggest crowds. Security check took maybe 2-3min and we were inside.

Our guide was knowledgeable, charming and prepared. The organizer for the tour was 20 minutes late and we had to wait for her to get papers and a microphone before our guide could start. Once our guide had what she needed, we were thrilled with the tour.

Our guide, Alfonso D'Orsi, is in love with what he does and transmits it with passion and intensity. An unforgettable experience. Absolutely recommended.

Very engaging guide Anna! Thanks for the extremely interesting tour! Great knowledge of the artworks and personal enthusiasm was felt from start to finish!

The Tour guide is very knowledgeable, patient, very considerate.
