This tour was well worth the price. Our guide was Christiano or Chris. We got in quickly and our guide took us to the most prominent pieces of artwork. The tour lasted about 2 hours, and our guide did a wonderful job of explaining the artwork and why the Medici family was important. I highly recommend this tour if you want to get in quickly and you want a more personal explanation of the artwork. When we were done, we went back to our favorite pieces and explored more of the gallery.

We've done several guided tours this trip and the tour of the Uffizi with Angelo was far and away the best. The gallery is so large and so packed with people and works of art (in addition to the architecture of the building itself) that is is hard to make sense of it all. Angelo did an excellent job creating a narrative thread connecting themes and works over art over time. He's a lively storyteller with just enough bite to keep my 22 and 25 year old sons engaged in our tour. We went unguided to the Accademia the next day and that visit was enhanced by all that we'd learned from Angelo the day before.

I’d recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to receive the maximum of knowledge, entertainment and background understanding about the Italian Renaissance for a fair price. Tourguide Ricardo is highly educated and knowledgeable, yet manages to make you live the art in the Uffizi rather than merely looking at it. Highly recommendable & next time again for sure. Mille grazie!

Riccardo is an amazing guide. Attentive, courteous, knowledgeable and well spoken. He put history in context of the art and engaged everyone on the group, including our teenage daughter! The tour ranks high also because we did not have to wait in line like everyone else, Riccardo knew what floor the most significant art pieces were and led us right to them providing thorough explanation each time. After we completed the guided tour we had time to explore the museum on our own.
I highly recommend this tour.

Annette blended art history with interesting stories of the time periods she was covering in the art. We were whisked from one notable piece to another. We could have never managed the Uffizi without someone as knowledgeable as Annette.

Our guide Fabrizio was really knowledgeable and took us through the gallery explaining the development of western art and its rich cultural roots. He showed us examples of different stages and had a wealth of anecdotes about different painters. With a small group of 8 everyone was included in the discussion.

Unless you know your art history I would highly recommend a guided tour. I wasn’t sure what to expect and must say it was a well worth it. Our guide Martina (like the tennis player) was amazing and knowledgeable. It’s a tough job being a art historian guide and she was a fountain of knowledge. I’m not going to into the details as you will see some wonderful pieces of art ‘in the flesh’ and they looked amazing. The gallery is big. Wear comfy shoes, have something to eat beforehand and don’t bring bottles larger than 50cl as the gallery entrance has airport type security and our half empty 1.5l water bottle was confiscated. I learned a lot on the day and grew a new appreciation of the artists on show. This is an amazing place. Thanks Martina.

Leonardo was the perfect tour guide for the Uffizi. A native, young and knowledgeable tour guide, he shared his passion for his hometown and its marvelous history and significance. My adult daughter and I listened to every word and learned new things about the Medicis, the artists and fascinating specifics about the masterpieces of Cimabue, Giotto, da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rafael and Caravaggio. As we moved about the museum, you could tell from Leonardo's interactions with other tour guides and Uffizi staff, that he is well-regarded. The 90 minutes went by so quickly and we were very impressed. We have been to many museums in London, Paris and throughout Turkey. Leonardo was one of the best tour guides we have had. Thank you Leonardo.

Highly recommend Keys of Italy! Our tour guide (Sara) was very knowledgeable and did a great job providing an overview of classical and renaissance art with enough detail to be engaging, without being overwhelming. She answered all our questions and was very attentive to the needs of the group. We were in good hands with Sara! She also did the Academia Gallery tour with us, and it was superb.

This was the most fantastic tour - I cannot recommend it enough. The tour guide was unbelievably knowledgable and showed you all the best parts of the Uffizi. We asked so many questions and he knew all the answers. He was very kind and open to including any parts that we had read about and wanted to include. At the end, he was more than happy to give tips on other parts of the gallery that we may have wanted to see. It took 2 hours and was worth every penny - the best thing we did in Florence.
