Patricia, our guide,was excellent. As we were early, the galleries were a pleasure to view without crowds. In fact, in some galleries there were no others present but our small group of 10. Before entering the Sistine Chapel, Patricia gave us an excellent overview of details in the Sistine which enhanced our viewing pleasure. I would strongly recommend these tours.
It was a wonderful experience. Our guide was informative without overwhelming us with facts. Areas of interest and beauty were highlighted. Excellent restaurants with spectacular views were recommended and did not disappoint. We had ample time to explore the villages and eat the gelato . The small group, there were 5 of us, makes for a friendly, shared experience without feeling herded and laden down with quiet voxes.
Marco was an excellent guide with a wonderful knowledge of art history. He highlighted various art works, outlining development from Byzantine icons to the works of Michaelangelo and Fra Filippo Lippi. He made the best of a difficult situation - hordes in the Uffizi - but ensured that we heard him and had our questions answered. The visit to the Corridor was interesting and a welcomed escape from the crowds. He made the visit worthwhile.
