It was a complete dream, the guide was very knowledgeable and the information was precise and insightful. She was very charismatic and offered all kinds of additional information when asked for details and volunteered very curious facts during the conversations.

We mainly wanted to avoid the very long line to get into the museum and it helped greatly. It was easy to locate the tour operator at the site and there were plenty of communications to make sure things go right. Absolutely recommend it.

Had to wait in line to get into museum but it became a good time to get to know the tour guide and she gave us some history while waiting. Very pleased with the group only being 5 people and it made it easier to ask questions.

Guide very prepared and good at explaining the history of the Uffizi, the Medici and the works

Our guide Oksana was excellent, very knowledgeable. Highly recommended
