A evening with the master of the renaissance

Incredible experience learning from the most important master of the Renaissance. Elena was very knowledgeable and organized.
Delightful Uffizi Tour

Guido was amazing. He made the Uffizi experience an extra delight with his insight, warm personality, enthusiasm, and eye for detail. A pleasure!
Get a guide!

Uffizi is so vast that we would have been lost in the weeds without a guide. We were much more able to understand and appreciate what we were seeing.
Wonderful tour

Marina, our guide was amazing! So knowledgeable and personal. She added so much to the experience. Her guidance helped us truly get a sense of the art.

Guido was an excellent guide who is an art aficionado. I have been to Ufizzi many times but he showed me things I was not aware of. Highly recommended.
Great time

Excellent Experience
Mary_Y, May 2022
The guide we had was excellent. She knew so much about the art we were seeing and could answer every question we asked.
Guide was knowledgeable but spent too much time on the views and a YouTube of football

The fantastic art. The background of the artists . I have read about this museum all of my life. To see it was a bucket list item for me.. it is a shame I did not have a better guide. This guide had no passion for his job.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Dear Customer, Thank you for your valuable Review. As you mentioned, Guide was knowledgeable, meaning Guide is professional and knows his job well. Maybe Sir your visited lots of time, therefore you do not need to stay more time for paintings. But group guided tours; other people expect good explanations for every painting. So I'm really sorry about that. We have to look after all people who participate the tour.
Educational and fun art tour!
Sarah_G, Apr 2022
First, the Uffizi was WAY bigger than I had ever imagined; I'm not sure how we would have explored it on our own. It was great having Pam take us around and show us the highlights. She had a ton of knowledge that she shared in a fun and interesting way. Pam was very accommodating to some special needs I have when dealing with large crowds and went out of her way to make sure my husband and I had an enjoyable experience! Would recommend for anybody looking to tour the gallery.
Amazing tour and guide
Daryl_O, Jan 2022
Our guide Guido was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the art and artists and took us to see all the popular works and then let us explore on our own. You can see all the main works in 2 hours and then enjoy the rest at your leisure.
Great guide
Audrey_O, Nov 2021
Guido is a passionate and animated guide. He had so much emotion in his story telling which my partner and i enjoyed very much. Highly recommend to get a guide at the Uffizi Gallery as it is so large and hard to navigate.
Great Exoerience

Thomasa was an excellent tour guide. My wife and I really enjoyed the tour and his knowledge of the area and the museum was impressive.
Uffizi Highlights
Barbara_A, Jul 2021
Tomasso was great! Very knowledgeable about the artwork and Florentine history. It was the perfect tour for teens who just wanted to see the highlights of the museum.
excellent, friendlly and competent Uffizi Gallery tour by Sabina
Benedikt_L, Oct 2020
We got an excellent, friendlly and competent Uffizi Gallery tour by Sabina Avuri even in German. She knows a lot and is living in the region. She was early at the agreed time and place and we could start immediately and got a "private tour" for we had the luck that nobody else tokk part at this time.
Great experience!
BAQ919Mentor_Ohio, Sep 2019
Recommended the semi private tour. We booked a late afternoon tour, fortunate for us there were only 4 of us. The guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about sharing the history of the top ten rooms and paintings we visited. If you want you can go back to any room at the end of the tour. Great way to get the most out of your visit to Uffizi.

Excellent tour with Leonardo. Very knowledgable and kept tour interesting. We had already had a long day and was worried this might have been too much but the 2 hours flew by. Saw all the highlights of the museum and he even gave advice on visiting Accademia the following tour. Well worth the investment.
