We had a very nice tour of the museum, our guide was really knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the 1.5 hours of the tour. At the end we were able to turn around and go back through the museum on our own after the tour was finished, which was really nice to be able to do.
This tour was amazing! To be honest, I didn't expect much. We just signed up to get in to see the Last Supper by Leonardo. Our guide was so knowledgeable and interesting. She walked us around Milan, explaining the important sites, their history and back-stories. The tour was well organized and our guide unfortunately, I don't remember her name even kindly helped people with transportation and other questions after the tour.
The guide on this tour was great. He was quite funny and very knowledgable about the exhibits. I think he said he was an art teacher/lecturer and it showed. We skipped the line and went straight into the gallery without delay. There were quite a few people on the tour but the headsets worked quite well and we could hear what was being said. After the tour you could stay on in the gallery as long as you wanted. We would recommend this tour.
I really enjoyed this tour - skip the line was definitely the way to go as the lines were horrendous! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and the artwork should not be missed.
We were very glad to have a guide at this huge museum and our guide, Catharina, was great!
This tour was great. Greeters were prompt. Whispers worked well. The guide was phenomenal. Be aware that even with skip the line and a guide, the Uffizi Gallery is crowded and it is sometimes hard to view the paintings and impossible to linger to reflect.
The guide is really experienced and he makes the tour very interesting with his story telling style. We got to see all the significant pieces and he directed us to the area of interest afterwards. I think this is a great way to have introduction to Uffizi a must have and then certainly you can spend a lot more time as acquired for your taste.
This was a very nice tour. I enjoyed the beauty of the art work inside the audio Gallery. There is a lot to see.
She was so cute, passionate and knowledgeable on her subject. We learned so much about Florence. Highly recommended
Federica was perfect! Engaging, bright, warm and knowledgeable. Be aware Florence is very crowded and so is the Uffizzi. The crowds increase the heat--people density I mean, so bear that in mind. But it was worth taking the tour and I recommend this one.
We got in to the Gallery ahead of a 2 hour wait in line! Our guide worked hard to share info with us in the midst of huge crowds of people. Loved seeing the beautiful works of art! Thank you!
excellent guide and very informative tour, very glad we did it.
Our guide was a charming art historian who added so much to our appreciation! Thumbs up!
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.
