Be fascinated with this walking tour in one of the oldest and most famous art museums of the western world!
Did this tour once before, easy to book online, walk right up pass the crowds at the time suggested for arrival. Great tour guide with an excellent knowledge of Florentine art and history.
Guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. Our family enjoyed it very much!
Vanessa was awesome! She was very knowledgable, had a terrific sense of humor and managed the group well. Simply adorable -and her love for The David was contagious!
Fabulous and simply stunning tour.
The tour guide made any art luddite understand the thinking in the artist and #39;s mind when they did the painting. Need more time at the Uffizzi!
This was a great tour! It was worth going with a tour guide because she knew the ins and outs of the museum. There was one stop on the tour where people were not allowed into a room because it was felt the humidity would be too much for the items inside. People could only view it from the three doorways that surrounded the room. The first doorway was incredibly overcrowded and it would have been near impossible to get a look inside. The second doorway was also crowded but the third doorway had just a few people looking in. Our tour guide led us straight to the third doorway. The stories about some of the paintings in other parts of the museum are very interesting. I got to know more about the Medici families and how they lived. However, it's also nice to go back at the end of the tour and look at how amazing it was to paint some of the pictures. My 19 year old daughter was not that impressed but I think it has more to do with her age. I'd recommend getting something to eat or drink at the café in the museum. My husband and daughter spent some time lingering at the café table while I went back to see some other paintings.

Great tour! Very happy we did it. Be aware that even though it is a skip the line tour, it still took 30 minutes in line just to get inside the museum. Still very much worth it because without this it would have taken hours. The guide was knowledgeable and helped us navigate the museum and lead us to it's most famous masterworks. My 9-year old loved it and so did the rest of the family. Well worth the money. Thank you!
This was great experience, all went perfect with headphones and very skilled and nice guide.
I highly recommend such guided tour at Uffizi.
This tour was absolutely wonderful! The tour director I believe his name was Alex is an Art Teacher, and he is incredibly knowledgeable about everything we were seeing, including the history and evolution of styles in both painting and sculpture. Anyone fortunate enough to tour the museum with him will find it to be a richly rewarding experience. I could not have been happier with it.
From an administration standpoint, the local contacts at the museum were friendly and efficient, and they got us organized and ready to begin the tour a couple of minutes early.
I expect to book many more tours with Viator. Based on my experience they are a first-class organization - and they have so many tours to choose from!
Guide was very interesting and knowledgeable, and skipping the line was great!
Thank you Catarina for making our tour of the Uffizi Gallery so memorable! You are an incredible guide, full of passion, knowledge and so much humour! Thank you again!
