This tour was very informative & interesting. Our guide, Sara, did an outstanding job of keeping our group moving & expertly moved us in between the many other tour groups to allow the best view of each of the art pieces she spoke to. We throughly enjoyed her tour.

The guide was very nice and organized. The tour is very informative but too slow if you’re going with teens. They spent too long explaining the art in each room. You still have to wait with the group to get into the museum which would take the same amount of time if you were to wait in line on

This is one of the best tours I have ever taken. A great history of painting by a very knowledgeable guide with the material right in front of you. Must do, you owe it to yourself!

An excellent experience. Our tour guide gave us a brilliant chronological tour of the gallery and I, as a one-man cultural vacuum, actually learnt some art history. I would have given it five stars but this is not the cheapest way to see the Uffizi. Having said that, skipping those huge queues was essential as I would never have have made it inside if I had to join the very long queue in the heat!
Our guide was very personable...

Our guide was very personable,, knowledgeable, and informative.Our group was relatively small-8 or fewer. After we left the meeting spot near the Apple store, we walked 3-4 blocks to the Uffizi. One recommendation to some, take the elevator up to the 4th floor. Our guide offered it to us, but we declined. There are four long flights to climb. The tour was 3 hours long, on a very, very hot day, but the guide made it interesting.
