Definately worth doing as the queues were so long. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and led us to the main attractions in the museum which we could have quite easily missed on our own.

A highlight of our trip. Loved the commentary from the Guide, and the ending in the Sistine Chapel is a marvelous memory. Absolutely worth the extra money.

Angelo did a wonderful job walking us through the highlights of some of the great art in the Uffizi. We were so lucky to have him and a day where the gallery was relatively free of people. Its amazing how art becomes so much more interesting when you have an expert tour guide. We highly recommend this tour to all!

Excellent guide who coped well with disruptions due to renovations. Unique insights into the highlights of the Uffizi. Very good use of time and lots of background information on the history of the gallery as well as Florence itself and plenty of time to explore on our own at the end.
