Angela was absolutely fantastic, bringing art and artists to life. Very enjoyable one and a half hours. Thank you Angela!

We entered the Uffizi gallery in 10-15 min from special entrancegroups only. There were many groups. Entering Uffizi without a group seems to be almost impossible lines are enormous. The guide Irena was very friendly and knowledgable, we enjoyed the tour. She showed and described top artists paintings and monuments. After tour we spent almost 1,5 hour on our own, because there are many rooms to see.
The tour worth it!

Our guide Angelo was excellent. He educated and entertained us all at the same time. The Uffizi Gallery would have been overwhelming without his guidance.

The Uffizi Gallery and the walking tour were both amazing! The Museum is full of incredible, priceless works of art. Our guide, Angelo was extremely knowledgeable and funny. He had numerous anecdotes and stories for every single piece of art we saw. He made a brilliant selection of pieces. He would say Gallery is like a menu. You dont eat everything, which is on the menu. :- Considering the crowds at the Uffizi, this tour was most definitely worth it and I cannot wait to go back to Florence and do it again!

Our guide Patricia was very enthusiastic about her subjects. This made the tour even more interesting. So much to see in this great museum. Glad that they left us in the museum so we could continue on our own. This was my favorite museum in Florence.
