Knowledgeable and enthusiastic female guide who is also a professional art historian involved in research at the Uffizi Gallery. We were the only ones of our group having 'aperitivo' afterwards in Piazza della Signoria, but a lovely place to people- watch.
The best way to skip the line and at the same time learn about the history of the gallery and the paintings. Our guide, Antonio was really a professional.
Uffizi is a must do when in Florence and skip the line is always worth it, no queuing, just meet our tour guide and in we went. I can't say that the guide was the friendliest I have ever met but she was fine, she was informative. We went on a Friday evening and the que's weren't too bad, we passed it again on Sunday and the line was huge must have been at least a couple of hours long, so skip the line is well worth it for the Uffizi.
Excellent guide - very knowledgeable and entertaining. We are so glad we decided to do this tour rather than go on oun. We would have missed so much.
WHAT A GREAT TOUR!~!!!
Our guide on the day was a very eccentric English lady whose passion for the art had no bounds. She truly was the best guide of any of the tours we did in London, Paris, Venice, and Rome
( I think her name was Rosemary, but if it isn't I bet that the booking office would know her by reputation)
She came across as a bit of a battleaxe at first but she mellowed and is second to none
Our tour was only about two hours but we would gladly have done the whole place with her.
DON'T DO THIS TOUR WITHOUT CHECKING IN WITH 'ROSEMARY' IF YOU CAN...YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
do it -- do it-- do it-- do it-- do it
We loved the tour guide and the background of the important works we were able to see. It was a well worth stop in Florence and 90 minutes was perfect amount to digest so much information about the history of Florence and what the art represented at the time. Highly recommend for convenience and information.
Great visit, informative guide and fascinating tales. Learnt something of the history of painting, through the amazing art work.
Jan (I believe that is how you spell our guide's name) was fantastic. We really enyoyed his in-depth knowledge of the art and history and his sense of humour. I would highly recommend this guide and our tour time which was late afternoon on a Wednesday. (avoid Tuesday tours in Florence museums since wait times may be longer than usual)
We had a private tour as there were only 5 people in our party! Excellent guide, very knowledgeable and thoughtful.
Sensational, informative and very professionally done. A must do !
Tour guide was awesome, very knowledgable on all the art and history of Florence
Marcello was a great tour guide and extremely funny and kept us entertained. He is very knowledgeable and has a passion for art, history and Florence!!!
I didn't do this tour myself but an number of members of my group did. They were very happy with the tour and commented on the advantages of skipping the line and the excellence of their guide
Really enjoyed the tour of Uffizzi. Our guide Gonzalo was informative and funny and made the whole tour enjoyable!
We had a most enjoyable visit to the Uffizi gallery. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and we found thye duration to be just right for us.
Great and interesting tour guide. Hit all of the major works of art in a reasonable time allotment.
Our tour guide was not good. She took long pauses between sentences which made her seem drunk. She was overly dramatic yet did not bring the gravitas appropriate for the uffizzi. Her subject-matter knowledge was okay.
Great time of a day to visit the gallery, and our guide was very good indeed. She spent 1.5h with us, gave us as much info as anyone would want early in the morning, leaving us to then have a coffee and explore the rest on our own. Great day.
Very good. The uffizi gallery is huge so it's good to have a guide . Also you will not believe the lines waiting for tickets so it's great to bypass the huge lines and get straight in. Very good book store when leaving gallery so it's worth a look. We did the tour at 4.30pm which was perfect for us but if you want to look around after the tour (your ticket allows you to stay on after the tour) you will be short for time as I think the gallery closes at 6/6.30pm. We had a great tour guide. Can't remember her name but she did the tour on the 6th of May and it's was very clear and she was quite witty!
Our guide was super! He was enthusiastic, knowledgable and friendly. We saw all the highlights of the museum without feeling rushed so I think 90 min was enough time with the tour. Because the tour was in the afternoon, we also caught a lovely sunset over ponte vecchio from the gallery!
Best tour we took in Italy, including from private tours. I think our guide was named Rebecca. What a wonderful perspective on life, art and politics from the time period. We would love to take her on all our tours with us, if we could!
This was a really good tours, as tours go. The tour guide didn't spend any time on art pieces that were not universally known. She went right to the good stuff. We really appreciated that because the gallery was huge and crowded and uncomfortably warm. When we saw Botticelli's THE BIRTH OF VENUS, it took our breath away. THese are the memorable moments we enjoy the most. Skipping the line saved us probably an hour + time. That alone, makes the tour a good deal for us. I would recommend this tour.
