This tour was definitely worth all the walking. Our morning tour with Alessandra was awesome. She was born in Florence and is so passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Florence. Literally, I don't know if there was more than a minute of silence the entire time of the 3 hour tour with her. She was just awesome. The morning was the Academia were they have Michelangelo's David and then also we toured the Duomo. Both highly recommended. But Alessandra also gave us a history lesson on Florence itself and all the places we walked through til the end of our tour. In the afternoon, we met up with our guide Federico who took us through the Uffizi Gallery. If you love art, you will love this place. Federico did an awesome job giving us a history lesson on the building itself as well as all the major works of art there. At the end of our tour, we have the rest of the afternoon to continue to tour the Uffizi on our own. I would say if you only have one day to spend in Florence, this is the tour to take.
Simply awesome tour! Especially the Ufifzi Gallery part has been fantastic with all the admiration and love the guide has been transferring to us when showing us real gems among these treasure halls. I feel it is always better to entoll in a guided tour in such places as you see the highlights and then to be left alone, at your own pace to admire and explore as much as possible.
Great value !! The day was split between a morning tour and an afternoon tour with time to eat a lunch.
Top quality tour of Florence with wonderful guide, Angelo. We enjoyed our tour of the Accademia and Uffizi, as well as lovely Florence streets, with good quality audio sets. Angelo was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, witty and captivating and we were so glad that we booked onto both the morning and afternoon tours.
We had an all day tour and it was fantastic. Angelo our morning tour guide was so passionate and obviously had a great love for the city. Both guides were very informative and knew so much, they were happy to answer any questions and there seemed nothing they didn't know. Would really recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence.

Excellent walking tour of the Accademia, the Duomo, and the Uffizi Gallery. Our guide in the morning was excellent, and she provided incredibly interesting art history facts about the art we saw in the Accademia. Huge accolades for Angelo, our tour guide for the Uffizi, who has clearly studied art history and is passionate about art and art education. He made every single artwork we saw come alive with his analysis, which translated art concepts into language that everyone, with or without an art background, could appreciate. His tour was the best art museum tour I have joined in Europe.
Our tour guide was knowledgeable and professional. She offered a different prospective in viewing the masterpieces in L'Accademia and L'Uffizi Galleries. I highly recommend this tour.
Really great tour. Our tour guide Angelo took us through the Uffizi Gallery and he was absolutely excellent. His commentary and knowledge were really great and was obviously very passionate about his subject which made for a great tour
Such a great way to see the insides of the galleries and museums. Guides knew so much.
Fantastic. Our guide, Sarah was amazing. She loved Florence and that excitement made the tour very special to us. Thanks Sarah...:
Angelo was a fantastic tour guide, so knowledgeable and passionate about this beautiful city that he calls home. It was peak tourist season when we were there and the crowds were quite amazing but Angelo managed to keep us apart from them and was so captivating that you didnt really notice them after awhile. If you only have one day in Florence I would thoroughly recommend this tour
Outstanding! Excellent presentation by Paul Costa Tour guide. Very engaging and educational.
We had a very good time during our visit. The two guides were very well prepared and solicited.
Our tour guide for both the morning and afternoon tour was Angelo. We found him to be exceedingly knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Florence, which came through in the delivery of the information. Angelo was both entertaining and humorous. He kept the whole group on track. Angelo enriched our experience of Florence. Skipping the enormous lines at all venues was well worth the price. Highly recommend Angelo and this tour to anyone coming to Florence.
Amazing tour! Do not miss out! Our tour guide made the whole experience unforgettable! Angelo was not only knowledgeable and insightful, his humor kept everything livelier!! He is a great story teller!
The talent of Michelangelo is truly AMAZING! The statue of DAVID is a must see!!
Great tour although we were told that Uffizi Gallery included Vasari Corridor but it did not. We were disappointed and have lodged a complaint but not heard back
ANGELO was great....a very knowledgeable tour guide actually an active archeologist. Highly recommended. It was my third time in Florence,.and my second guided tour.....still learned a lot in a very pleasant and enjoyable tour.
This was the best way to see the high lights of Florenec. Our guides , Rose in the morning and Angelo in the afternoon were superb. Their knowledge, anecdotes and snippets of fact and rumours made for an engaging and entertaining day. Both of them shared a passion for Florence and the art and culture they shared with us.
The walking was not too much, easy for people of all ages and we were shown areas off the beaten track that we never would have found ourselves. They encouraged questions and answered each and everyone. Radios and headsets were great and all worked well.
If you don't have much time in Florence, this is THE way to go. If you're lucky enough to have Vanessa as your guide in the Uffizi - you are in for a treat. If you can request her - DO!!!! She is perhaps THE best tour guide I have ever encountered. Her knowledge, passion and style will engage you - even for those that would have preferred not to be engaged. You couldn't help it. Her enthusiasm was infectious! Brava Vanessa!!! The guide who brought us through the Accademia was also knowledgeable and passionate. I learned more about Michelangelo's David than I ever learned in any art history class. Unfortunately I don't remember his name. He could have cut the tour of David by 15-20 min - I think his passion got the best of him. However, he was also a very good guide, and his knowledge of the city was excellent.
Highly recommend. Knowledgeable guide, passionate about art. Lovely walk after the gallery.
The tour is a great way to see the major highlights of Florence. The AM tour was great as you get to skip the lines to see David. The PM tour in the Uffizi was quick and didn't get to spend as much time to see all the art as I wanted. But still a lot of ground coverage in a day. Wear comfy shoes!
