What people are saying about Uffizi Gallery

The tour director, Crish, was excellent. He went and retrieved another couple that could not locate the meeting point (which was simple to find but they had difficulty). He was very professional and caring that we had a great experience. While not part of the Tour, he bought us a gelato and gave us a magnet for the city of Florence (very nice touch). The Tour Guide, Caterina, was superb. Her knowledge and passion for the Florence Arts was easily noticed. She explained the arts and sculptures with a lot of interesting details. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience starting with the Get Your Guide app which provided directions and lots of helpful hints to make it easier to enjoy the tour.

Sylvia was the most Amazing guide! She took us to the Uffizi gallery and the Academy. She was fascinating, spoke articulate, the tour was well constructed and so proffasional. She managed to give us a well educated look on the Florence history of art, music and the way it affected the whole world, all this in a fun and interesting way! She was also so considerate to our needs. No doubt that when we go back to Florence we will look for her specifically! She is extraordinary guide

Stefania was an excellent guide with deep knowledge of both the David-statue and the different art pieces in the Uffizi museum. My personal favorite was the da Vinci-room. We were also pleasantly surprised with the knowledge she has about Firenze, the Duomo and the Medici-family. The tour was well organized.

Leticia’s general knowledge of the city of Florence and her in-depth guidance of the main pieces of art provided a well-rounded and overall fantastic experience. HIGHLY recommended!
