This guided tour was one of the best decisions we made on our trip to Florence. The gallery is enormous and there is so many people visiting, that to be able to navigate ourselves would have been overwhelming. Our guide was so knowledgeable and organised us to see a really excellent broad overview and gave us some very interesting information along the way. The best way to visit the Uffizi we thought.
We booked this tour, partly so we could skip the line as there is no low season here! I'm glad we did. Getting checked off with my ticket on my mobile phone was great, as it is impossible to find anywhere to print out tickets in Florence. Once the group was sorted with radios and earphones our guide sorry I can't remember her name quickly led us to the entry and we were through into the museum in about 10 minutes.
Once in our guide was fantastic, she was very enthusiastic and obviously loves her job! She gave us a fantastic background into the most important and famous pieces in the museum, guiding us through a lot easier than if we were to try to find things on our own. It was great to hear not just about the art work but also how everything, including the building relates to the history of Florence. At the end of the tour you can wander back through for as long as you want. We loved it!!

It was hard to get up this early, but was worth the effort. This is the best way to see the Sistine chapel..worth the price
A Flrenze must see! place is packed so skip-the-line is the way to go
We are not art enthusiasts, but this tour of the Uffizi Gallery was perfect for us. Our guide, Federica, took us through the gallery, showing us just a few of the hundreds of rooms that are in that massive building. If we had tried to guide ourselves through that building it would have been overwhelming. She gave great details about some of the most famous pieces of artwork in the gallery and it was a perfect overview for us.
Really loved our guide Paulo. He took us through the key pieces in the Uffizi, and explained their importance and the history in a way that was easy to understand.
Outstanding! Wonderful guide who knew art, architecture and history. The only way to go!
The tour guide, Lutezia, was very knowledgeable and able to provide a wonderful overview to important works at the museum. She also gave us some good suggestions for touring the museum on our own.
Visiting the first museum in the world is truly an amazing experience. It could be particularly crowded in front of the museum, so leave plenty of time to find the tour group. Dont bring big bags as they may ask you leave it in the cloakroom of the museum. Be prepared to be amazed by the collection and the stories behind it, as told by the very knowledgeable tour guide.
Exquisite tour, the guide was perfect, Uffizi Gallery is marvellous and the experience was one of the best part of our trip. This was my first time in Florence and the guided tour convinced me to go back for more. Viator is a very good company and I will surely use them again.
Excellent express Uffizi tour. The knowledgeable guide helped us see the highlights of the Uffizi, which can be overwhelmingly large. I have no doubt that, without our guide, we would have missed some of the key pieces of art we enjoyed seeing. Well organized and informative!
The guide - Antonio was excellent. The audio appliances were better than I've used before. I liked the idea of history of ideas and changes in the art, reflecting the society.
The tour was led by Christian. This tour is not for the feint of heart or for your every day couch potato - there is a lot of walking and stair climbing. Sightseeing is a big responsibility. And the Uffizi is a trove of treasures waiting to be discovered. Christian is a passionate, knowledgeable teacher, who led us tirelessly from one chamber to the other. He filled our heads with mesmerizing stories about each exhibit and work of art. It is delightful to be in the presence of someone who loves what they do and who adores his field of interest. A person like Christian imbues his audience with that passion so that one leaves inspired and elated. I would definitely recommend a tour of the Uffizi Gallery led by Christian.
I have been to Italy several times and this was my first time at the Uffizi. Beatric, our guide, was very knowledgeable and answered any of our questions. The line to enter was quick and the tour was just the right amount of time.
Well worth an afternoon browsing among the masterpieces. Lively, engaging tour guide who mixed humor with interesting details that brought the works of art to life. Well done!
Vanessa was really gifted as a tour guide. She should be commended!
Five star is too low a mark , our guide Matt made this the very best tour we experienced his humour and knowledge of the gallery and the subject made this the most enjoyable afternoon.
This has to be the best value afternoon we had in Florence , there is so much to see round every corner.
Don't just buy the tickets , enjoy the guided tour and hope you get Matt
This tour was really great- the guide was interesting and engaging and she left me an understanding of the important works of art in the gallery. The hour and a half flew by and I wished at the end that it was longer! The regular line to the museum was surprisingly short, but a tour is definitely the way to go if you want to see the most famous works and learn a little about them.
Excellent tour guide. Very informative and great way to see the highlights.
Francesca was an amazing guide. She was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job explaining the art work and had very interesting back stories. It was a great experience.
