This tour is a must if you love art and have little understanding of the process. The guide of the Academia was very knowledgeable about the art but was difficult for me to understand with a very thick accent. The Academia was a place I would like to return to some day to spend more time. The guide at the Uffizi, Antonella Aramu, was so wonderful and so passionate about the art and it's history she held us all spellbound and I didn't want to stop. She spoke English very well and was willing to answer even the dumbest questions. the Uffizi Gallery was my favorite I think mostly because of Antonella. You won't be disappointed if you get her as your guide. I have a whole new way of looking at any art now. Thanks Antonella!!!

What a wonderful city. We really enjoyed this tour and listening to our guide.
Wonderful!!!! Guide knew his stuff and was easy to understand. I would recommend this to all my friends.
This was a wonderful half-day tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the bus tour to a scenic point, as well as the walking tour. Since we arrived at the Uffizi late in the afternoon, it was not as crowded as I've seen it earlier in the day. Our guide must have been an art historian given her detailed knowledge of the the magnificent works.
Unfortunately we had a very wet day but the tour guide did a fabulous job. Loved seeing the David and hearing all about the history. The city tour was great. Would have been nice to include an inside visit of the Duomo. After free time we had to find our way back to the meeting point for the afternoon tour. We managed but Florence streets and alleys can be very confusing.
Fantastic tour of the Uffizi Museum, with a wonderful tour guide. You can edit this sentence and remove, but I think her name was Samantha. I could have spent all day in the Uffizi and will be back again. Most of the time during the tour, my wife and I were listening, looking, with our mouths half open, surrounded literally by thousands of masterpieces. One name I will not forget - -Medici - - the family that made the Uffizi possible.
Great comprehensive tour for half day. We toured Florence on our own for morning so were ready to enjoy a short bus ride around Florence. Nice walking tour and Uffizi Gallery tour was led by a wonderful guide who was incredibly knowledgeable about art history.
The morning tour is fantastic and our guide Johannes was great. I would recommend this tour if you are short on time and want a quick overview of the city
My parents and I did the full day tour with lunch and it was completely worth it! It was one of the best tours we took in Italy. It was nicely structured, a good pace for even those with walking problems my dad has knee issues, and great for history buffs. The tour organizers were easy to spot right in front of the train station and it was a nice mix of bus and walking. If you want to see the amazing museums that Florence has to offer, this is a great way to do it and not have to stand in those crazy long lines! The guides are highly knowledgeable and passionate about the art they are presenting. We had Christina for the day segment and I believe her name was Sandra for the afternoon tour at the Uffizi.
Lunch was great, the restaurant was very clean, food was good, came with a glass of wine, and you have plenty of time to enjoy and do some shopping around the Duomo. The afternoon segment was my favorite if you only have to book one because the Uffizi is absolutely a must see and guided is the best way to enjoy it. Sandra was very professional, and you could tell she really loves presenting the beautiful art. A wonderful way to spend your day in Florence, especially if you are on a tight schedule.
We did the half day which gave us a good orientation of Florence and then we had the rest of the day on our own. Great tour and great guide!
Tour was exceptional and our tour guide Lenora was amazing with her knowledge of Florence, her detailed explanation of Michelangelo David and other works of arts at the Academia was very enlightening, her enthusiasm brought with it a contagious appreciation of these wonders of the world that can never be felt by viewing a picture on television or book, please pass along mine and my Girlfriend appreciation for a great tour
unfortunately it was raining on our tour day but It didn't matter. wonderful tour, great guide. definitely recommend this tour. only thing is there is not much time for lingering, taking pics, etc....fast paced.
Very good guide made the tour interesting, she became very passionate when we got to the statue of David.

Outstanding tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable.. Just a wonderful city. Going back soon
Eleanora was a very knowledgeable guide and both passionate about her work and great at relating her love of Florence to her guests. She made the tour interesting and fun.
Great way to get a quick introduction to Florence and the surrounding area. The guide was very informative and very knowledgeable as well. Handled the group very well, particularly during the walking tour where many other tour groups were present. Highly recommend this tour.
There is so much to see and experience in this little city. The guides that accompanied us in the museums provided a wealth of knowledge that one would not be able to obtain without their assistance. Fantastic experiences.
