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.
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!
We had a fantastic well informed guide. it was a small group so we were able to cover a few more paintings. i really appreciate the painting on the 2nd floor that she suggest we see on our own after the tour.
