Great experience. Couldn't have been any better. We had wonderful guides Vanessa and Paolo. We wouldn't have been able to get through everything in the short time we had without the tour. Thank you.
Our morning guide, Angelo, was very informative and entertaining. You will not be tempted to check your watch with Angelo! Not hard to tell he loves what he does. The walking was not strenuous nor long. It was great to bypass lines and be given such informative insights. We were able to spend a great amount of time with David, which was a bonus we were expecting to be whisked through. Angelo's knowledge of Michaelangelo and his creative genius was superb. Our time in the Duomo was sufficient, as many have said, the exterior and its story seem more impressive. After a wonderful lunch break, we went to Osterio Vecchio Vicolo, a superb meal. Very close to the end point of morning tour and start point for afternoon tour. Beatrice was our afternoon guide for the Uffizi. This gal was most passionate about her art and invited us to suspend our preconceived notions and invited us to enter the images in a different way. A true art connoisseur! It was a delight to learn from her and absorb some of her passion.

Nice, easy walking tour of Florence. Lots of time built in to enjoy the sights and take pictures. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about both the art and the neighborhoods. I would highly recommend as a good way to get an overview of the important city landmarks.
I was blown away with the knowledge of both guides and all the amazing history and art!
This is the best way to see a lot of Florence in one day. The skip the line tickets are really worth it and the tour guides were amazing!
Great walking tour of Florence. We started the morning off going to the Accademia Gallery where we saw Michelangelo's David as well as several other pieces done by the master. From the Accademia we visited Florence's Duomo and got a tour of the inside. After seeing the Duomo, we walked to Piazza del Mercato Centrale to rub the snout of 'Il Porcellino', Florence's Trevi Fountain. From here, we visited Piazza della Repubblica before ending at the Arno River next to the Uffizi Gallery. After the morning portion of the tour, we had about an hour and a half of free time. This is a good time to grab a bite to eat. My wife and I got pizzas at Osteria Vecchio Vicolo to refuel for the afternoon portion of the tour. In the afternoon portion of the tour, we were given a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery. Once the tour was complete, we were given time to leisurely walk through the Uffizi Gallery or leave and enjoy another part of Florence. Overall, this was a great tour. Bring your walking shoes as you'll need them.
I really like these tours because the guides were natives of Florence and very passionate about their town. Having a guide in the Uffizi was wonderful as we were taken to the most important, impressive pieces and were told why they were important. We were then free to roam the gallery and take in the rest of the museum.
Make sure you have a map showing the meeting location church as it is NOT the Duomo.
Our guide was fantastic and was brimming with so much knowledge about Florence since she was a local. With so much overwhelming things to see in just a few hours, it was interesting to understand the specific history of a few of the pieces of art that we would have never known on our own. With the headsets on you could always wander and listen as she told us wonderful history without fear of not being able to hear the guide or be right next to her. This is the way to go as I saw some other tours that did not have the headsets. Besides the MUST SEE Uffizi and Accademia Galleries which were unbelievably gorgeous, it was wonderful just walking the streets and hearing wonderful history that we would have never known on our own. Once we had the walking tour it gave us an overview of where we wanted to explore later on our own since this was our first time in Florence and Italy. I highly recommend all of the Viator tours since we had six while in Italy and all of the guides were extremely knowledgeable and fun.
Our guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their respective subjects. They intelligently maneuvered around some obnoxious guests while, at the same time, imparted their passion into our hearts. This was the perfect introduction to Florence.
The morning and afternoon tour guides are excellent. The Uffizi Museum is must see attraction.
Excellent tour! Both tour guides were the best. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence.
On the tour of Uffizi Gallery, the guide concentrated on 7 artworks. My wife and I loved this approach.
This tour allowed us the ability to get into 3 major attractions with minimal waiting, plus the benefit of a guide who is directing us to what is important about the exhibits and important features. Our tour started at the Accademia to see the original David statue, and then onto the Duomo - having a guide brought the information to life and gave us so much more information than just reading the descriptions. After a break for lunch, we reassembled to tour through the Uffizi Galleries. We had two different guides, both were fantastic, highly enthusiastic, passionate, and very knowledgeable - most guides are art historians/architects/artists and must complete a training course in addition to their own studies so their breadth of knowledge is rather great. You will need to wait in line a little since the security does get a little bogged down. The guides' english is perfect and not at all hard to understand, and the individual headsets make hearing the lectures easy, and one does not even need to be that close to hear everything. I will also commend the tour group agency - we had gotten a little lost finding the meeting place our own stupidity, they called us to make sure we were coming, waited and were very helpful in trying to make this a good experience. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour! 2 very knowledgeable and entertaining guides wonderful artwork! Strongly recommend this.
Loved it. Our tour guides were so knowledgeable. Elisa in the morning tour and Valentina in the afternoon...both guides were fabulous! Brought the art to life with the info and stories. I can and #39;t imagine not signing up for this tour and trying to do it myself.
The tour is well organised and commences on time and content is consistent with the tour description and detail in the booking information. The morning tour guide Patrizia was fantastic, her passion and enthusiasm for the city and the art in the Accademia Gallery was matched by her knowledge and understanding of the city and the art. The afternoon tour of the Uffizi Gallery was well conducted and the guide Antonio gave a terrific tour of the gallery, explaining in detail the art works and the various artists responsible for the works.
Crooked this tour to anyone wanting to see great art, the cathedral and gain a very good understanding of the city.
