Unbelievable. Amazing tour guide and the skipping of lines was key. She was detailed about what she shared but kept us moving as well which was great. The apperativo post tour was exceptional and I met such fun people. Highly recommend
Loved this -- the absolute best way to see the Uffizi when it's not so crowded! The tour was very good and the guide was informative. We had a very good tour and then enjoyed staying after for the aperitivo we shared with another fun traveler. Great way to meet new friends and hear their stories if you care to be friendly with others in the group. This was a great way to spend our first evening in Florence!
So enjoyable to see this without crowds! Our guide was wonderful.
This tour was great. Because the tour was at 7.00 the Uffizi was fairly quiet and the guide was extremely knowledgeable about the paintings. She focused on the most important/popular exhibits and we had time to look and appreciate these. One downside was that the gallery closed at 8.30 so we couldn't linger to see some of the other paintings. The aperitif and snack across the square was very welcome. We had eaten at lunchtime so the food provided was enough for us. There were just 6 on our tour so it worked very well.
Fantastic tour, amazing to see the great artists work right before your eyes, enthusiastic knowledgeable guide wonderful restaurant in the Floentine square
Very Knowledgeable guide
This tour covers the highlights of the Uffizi Gallery, which was fine with us. You could spend days there to see absolutely everything. We really liked being there in the evening without the daytime crowds. Our guide Andreas, was unfortunately not the easiest to understand. We all tried to help fill in the English words for him. I had issues with my listening device, as it kept cutting out. Also the earphones were not the best. I recommend you bring your own, which would have helped me hear him. All in all, we were very glad we went but there were issues.
The museum was awesome. It is a perfect time to go to avoid crowds. I enjoyed the descriptions of the various pieces and it helped to understand some of the differences in the art and history of Florence. We chose the dinner option, and I would skip that next time, there are better places with better food in less touristy areas. The food was fine, and plentiful, but if you know Italy and know Italian restaurants, there are better for the price.
The tour in the Uffizi Galleries was stupendous. It was very special to be there without crowds and without people standing in the way of the art. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and very willing to answer any and all questions. The art we experienced was exceptional and the anecdotal information our guide gave us made each piece much more meaningful.
The dinner on the other hand was not exceptional. In fact it was mediocre at best. It took place in one of the restaurants around the perimeter of the Piazza della Signoria and not actually in the Piazza. The food was merely adequate and service while attentive was very rushed.
Overall I was satisfied. If I had it to do over again, I would have the aperitif and skip the dinner.
The tour was great and informative but I found it a bit pricy for what it was.
