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.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about Florence's history.
We had two different tour guides, Angela in the morning and Angelo in the afternoon. Both were very informative, pleasant and loved what they were describing. It was very enjoyable to experience their love of art and Florence. Their English was fantastic. Although we had skip the line passes, we still had to wait in line for about 40 minutes which is nothing compared to ones that do not buy ahead. We were told that Thursdays seem to be the busiest days at the museum because the cruise ships dock in Florence that day. There is a lot of walking and a lot steps so wear your most comfortable shoes!
It was nice to do a morning tour and then break for lunch on our own and regroup for the afternoon tour.
Ou morning guide was very knowledgeable and did a good job, but I did not get her name. Angelo Angelo was fantastic guide at the Uffizi Gallery, lots of stories and insights, appreciated his passion! The earphones are very nice and able to hear the guides well!
This was the second time we have done this tour as we took our son, daughter in law and granddaughter this trip. The day is fabulous and so informative. It's a great introduction to Florence.
Our tour guides, Charles and Angelo, were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They really seemed to love the subject matter. We learned a lot and enjoyed the experience very much.
Really enjoyed this tour, both of our guides were amazing. It does involve a fair bit of walking and climbing stairs particularly in the afternoon segment but well worth it. The museums are quite crowded but our guides were both patient and waited to allow us the best views. Would recommend this to anyone who wants a good overview of Florence and entry to the museums without having to queue for hours.
The tour was fantastic... worth every penny. I was traveling alone, and learned much more than I would have otherwise. Angelo, our guide, was fabulous. He kept us organized, was very knowledgeable, and had an ability to bring history to life in a way that related it to modern times and terms. He was skilled at weaving the art we saw into the context of the times social, cultural, religious. Very funny, too. The afternoon tour of the Uffizzi was a bit short for my taste, but you could spend a week there and not come close to seeing everything, so be realistic. If you have just a day in Florence and want to see the best of it and understand more, I highly recommend this tour.
The guide was very good in explaining the history behind the art/buildings/piazza's that would be missed otherwise. Well worth it!
Very good, easy walking pace and guides were friendly and knowledgeable
Our guides were very informative. The sculptures and paintings visited and described in the tour were the most popular famous and what my wife and I wanted to see.
guide very informative and personal interacted with group well
Both of our guides were very knowledgable and awesome. I really enjoyed our guide for the second part of the tour in the Uffizi Gallery. He was very passionate about the culture of Florence and I enjoyed his explanations of the paintings and sculptures.
Again, a very knowledgeable guide and we were able to get an indepth overview of the best of Florence.
We loved Sara at the Uffizi and our guide at the David. A great tour
The morning tour was by far the best thing we did on our trip!! Paul was hilarious and informative. We learned so much about the history of Florence and the David. I never would have appreciated the David or the Ponte Vecchio if I had not know the history behind them. The Uffizi tour was also very nice and informative. Sara explained several painting to us and the tour flew by - it did not seem like an hour and a half! Overall I highly recommend!
