Giacomo was very engaging and provided an entertaining and very informative tour. My daughter and I had a lot of fun learning about the backstories behind the iconic artworks of Uffizi, and we wish we had more time!

We were able to see so many things and learn so much on our tour. Rosa was an amazing guide and made sure that our 8 year old daughter was able to interact and take an interest in the tour as well!

Julia's tour was absolutely brilliant. She explained the context of the art and the time it was created really well. I could have listened to her for much longer than just 2 hours.
