Skip the Line: Uffizi Gallery and Vasari Corridor Walking Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Sinisha(??) was a BRILLIANT tour guide, he knew his art and history inside out. The actual tour of the Uffizia was really JUST the highlights, which IS great of that's all you want. The Vasari corridor was wonderful, the portraits amazing and really was so much to take in but definitely worthwhile for art lovers. Was nice view and perspective to look down onto the Ponte Vecchio especially after walking on it for several days. If you are really into art would suggest you also book in to see the uffizi at a separate time to spend more time, I'm guessing with a tour or Audi tour. There were about 15 people in our group which was a good size.

Florence Walking Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The guide William was very lovely but his English really wasn't adequate to be giving a guided tour in English....he was definitely enthusiastic though. The tour was an excellent quick way to introduce you to Florence, I would make sure next time you ensure the guide is fluent...better still we actually tracked down an Aussie living in Florence (Freyas tour of Florence, ie Freya middelton). We also booked her for3 hours, more expensive but definitely worth it for those who have a good knowledge of art, renaissance history and wanting someone to make Florence come alive!

Florence Photography Walking Tour: Palaces, Palazzos and Bridges

Florence, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Simone was the guide, agin we were the only ones on the tour. A native to the ci, Simone shared many stories and history of the city, he is a professional photography teacher. He tried to teach us more about the camera and succeeded in teaching us how to take night time pics. The timing of the tour in hindsight prob wasn't ideal, unless you want to learn to take night time pics, as it was sunset within an hour of us starting, then ,ostly night time pics. A very able and patient teacher!

Venice Photography Walking Tour: A Day in Life of Venice

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Mario was our guide and he was simply BRILLIANT - a professional photographer. We were the only ones on the tour. It was quite a rainy morning so we spent a good hour sitting under the palazzo ducal verandah learning about the camera and going through some technical elemetnd...I thought at time was a bit of over kill but definitely paid off. We then walked around Venice in areas where the toursists seemed not to know about. Mario was great in helping to review photos, assist with composition and settings to ensure we captured the best shots possible. Wuld definitely recommend this tour.
