  • Uniquely, this tour also visits the Palazzo Vecchio; one-time home to the Medici family. Here you’ll visit the Council of 500, made famous by Dan Brown and Michelangelo.

EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

VISIT THE OLDEST AND BEST ART GALLERY IN ITALY.

First opened to visitors in 1591, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the world’s oldest museums. Covering an area of some 86,000 square feet, it also happens to be one of the biggest. And just in case that weren’t compelling enough reason to visit – it’s the best art collection in all of Italy!

All of that can make the Uffizi Gallery pretty overwhelming. Luckily, the paintings are arranged in chronological order which means you feel like you’re traveling through time, tracing the world’s most important artistic movements as they happened.

DON’T SEE VISIT ART, UNDERSTAND IT, WITH AN EXPERT LOCAL GUIDE.

Your expert guide will walk you through this incredible museum, teaching you to distinguish different styles in different ages, so you can see how techniques developed over the centuries – and how the Renaissance changed everything.

Discover masterpieces by greats like Cimabue, Duccio and Giotto. Gaze at the real Renaissance classics, including, perhaps most famous of all, Botticelli’s ‘Primavera’ and ‘Birth of Venus’. Learn about the legacy the painters of this particular era left by exploring later pieces by Titian and Caravaggio. It all adds up to more than just an Uffizi tour – it’s a voyage through time!

PRE-RESERVED TICKETS GUARANTEE YOUR ENTRANCE!

Uffizi tickets are (quite understandably) in high demand and during busy seasons in particular, general access lines can stretch for hours. You don’t need to worry about any of that though, because we’ve pre-reserved your tickets so your entrance line is separate from general access.

With small groups of only 15 people or fewer throughout, you’ll find it easy to hear your guide and to ask all the questions you can think of – creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere throughout. You can also count on the quality of our tour guides, hand picked for their knowledge, passion, enthusiasm and fun factor.

End your tour with a step back in time at Palazzo Vecchio

NOTE: This tour only includes Palazzo Vecchio from March 1. Before that date we will be running our standard 2hr 15min Uffizi tour.

The history of Palazzo Vecchio is the history of Florence. For centuries this was the home of power, government and art in Florence. Built by the same man who created the Duomo, both Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were commissioned to paint murals here, in the phenomenal Council of 500. Neither completed the task (and Michelangelo learned an important lesson about painting with wax) but the frescoes and ceiling panels here are still an incredible sight.

As well as beautiful art, you'll encounter the most fascinating of Florentine history at Palazzo Vecchio, including the story of the Medicis, who abandoned this palace for the Pitti Palace in a bold statement, and commissioned the building of the Vasari Corridor all the way from here to their new home.

Same guide as morning walk tour, again, she's excellent. Clearly enjoys her work!
Charles was amazing. So extremely knowledgeable, so passionate. We learned a great deal and the sites were amazing. He explained every artist, every sculpture, every painting in great detail and really opened my eyes to art and to art appreciation. He was awesome and the tour was as well!
Teresa's knowledge and preparation made for a very enjoyable and educational afternoon. From where to use an elevator, to the progression of artists depicting the relationship of Madonna and Child, to weaving the Medici family and its history into the collection, she was great.
Cristina was great. Very informative. Excellent tour.
Highly recommend. Take some extra time before or after the tour to explore this museum.
Very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable guide. Love that the tour numbers are low. Guide was never rushing us and we could take our time. Loved it thank you very much
Teresa was fabulous! I learned so much from her and her style of educating was informal but professional. She has an easy going personality and her knowledge of art history was phenomenal, too. This tour is highly recommended!
Teresa was well-informed and very gracious. She helped my mother-in-law with a medical issue during the tour. She was also gracious enough to help us locate a cab service after our tour since my mother-in-law was a bit ill. Everything was perfect in terms of the tour.
Charles Adler, our tour guide, gave us a very informative and interesting tour of the Uffizi. We covered just a small part of the Museum, but it was a very quality tour that creates a desire for us to come back next year for another tour, hopefully with Mr. Adler again.
Very knowledgeable guide.Good pace and we were left with some time in the museum to explore on our own which was nice.
Very nice!
Knowledgable and friendly. Informative tour.
The tour leader was amazing! She had a story to tell and was excited to tell it through the art she showed and the passion with which she did it. Wonderful.
Our guide was fantastic as were the people who met us at the appointed meeting spot. Will recommend
Awesome guide. Learned a lot!
Angelo was the best guide of our trip. Overwhelmed by all the art and beauty.
I do not recall the guide's name but she was very informative and enthusiastic. I would absolutely recommend the tour and the guide. Am so glad I took it instead of doing the audio guide.
Fantastic Guide her passion for her job really shone through! We had a young family in our group which included two girls 11& 12 years and Theresa's enthusiastic delivery of her knowledge was so very much appreciated!
Best tour I did in Florence. Angelo was so great, informative, enthusiastic & interesting! This was the first tour I did & no other tour compared. Thank you, thoroughly enjoyed it!!
Very much enjoyed this amazing tour!
Charles was excellent.
Wonderful guide! Eshmael was terrific. Actually had him for 2 of my 3 walking tours in Florence. He was very knowledgeable, easy to follow and had a warm sense of humor.
We thought the tour was one of the best we have had. Paolo talked about art in the 1500's in a way that was interesting and informative, and we learned a great deal from him. Fabulous job!
Our guide, Paolo, was very engaged and was a great tour guide. Very passionate about the artwork. I still remember the intensity in his eyes!
Ismael had a great sense of humor and his knowledge of the art was incredible. He made the tour so much more than just looking at pictures. It was almost like getting a history of Western art while looking at the nuances of the art and its arrangement in the gallery.
Ishmael was knowledgeable and engaging. His English was also excellent. Highly recommend. I also think going early in the morning and a small group of 10 helped.
Ishmeal was very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed this tour.
Awesome!!
Our guide was FABULOUS!!
She was very well informed.
Uffizi was very crowded and again a hot day. The guide was very good and did a good job showing us more than just basics. She knew a lot about each of the artists and managed to give us a great tour despite the crowds.
I wish I could have gone on a longer tour. Our guide was very good--she was knowledgeable and friendly. I was thrilled I could get a tour on such short notice--it made a big difference our experience. Thank you
We found the tour extremely well organized. The guide was informative and witty with a lot of knowledge and a great style of presentation. Loved the fact that a few choice works were discussed in detail.
It was a wonderful tour through the Uffizi Museum, and the guide with the story-telling voice, made the tour even more interesting.
Cristina really knows her art. I felt bad for the people just wandering the Uffizi, they had no clue what to see. What a wonderful afternoon.
Excellent staff, tour guide was enthusiastic and informative.
Angelo, our tour guide made the whole experience special. We are pros in walking tours - this one stands out! Thank you, Angelo, and Walks Italy tours! We will for sure return back.
Paolo was a great guide. Described these masterpieces with enthusiasm, wit, and knowledge. This is one of 3 tours I took over 3 days and all the guides (Paolo, Terese, and Ishmael) were all superb. I would highly recommend Walking Tours to all. Tom
Same as above!!!
The tour was a wonderful introduction to the Uffizi. Our guide was fantastic. He was very knowledgable and enthuastic. Loved it.
This tour was fantastic, Ismael was a great guide who really showed us the great highlights of the Uffizi. Wonderful tour.
We were very impressed with Angelo's knowledge of art history. We could have easily spend the rest of the day in the Uffizi with Angelo as our guide. He presented multiple opinions and truly brought the art alive.
I think you could call the tour ' Secrets of the Paintings' because our tour guide Ishmael enlightened us tremendously. Insights on the progression of experimentation over time periods and subject matter. Very in depth and a pleasure to be with for 2.5 hours.
Another excellent tour with an excellent guide.
Very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide who made the information into a story.
Also a very excellent guide who was fun knowledgeable organized.
Guide was excellent, very informative, and made me appreciate the art we were viewing. Well-paced tour.
Ishmael gave us a great and comprehensive tour.
Klass was an exceptional guide. He is both witty and deeply knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and will certainly engage a "Walks" guide for our next adventure. Both my husband and I walked away feeling we learned a lot and our way of looking at art had changed. Really wonderful.
Angelo did a very good job. He managed to move at the right pace and was well-informed about his subject and able communicate well with his audience. Prof. JOHN BELCHER
This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Theresa, was both knowledgeable and engaging and she really made the art and history come alive for us. My wife and I look forward to our next trip to Italy and will be telling all of our friends about your tours and how much we enjoyed them.
Fantastic tour! The gallery and its paintings were really brought to life. Teresa was brilliant and made it all fascinating. We were so pleased to learn such a lot. We'd have been completely overwhelmed visiting the gallery without the tour. Thank you!
Angelo was fantastic. We both very much enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend.
See prior comments for Angelo-grazie!
Angelo needs a tv show... guy is hilarious
Our guide Ishmael was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a wonderful time and his insightful explanations added greatly to our enjoyment.Thank you so much, Beryl Bardsley.
Angelo is very knowledgable explaining the art history of the paintings and sculptures of the Uffizi.
Probably the best tour I've had. I studied art history in university and learned a lot from Bernardo. He is a superb guide!
Loved this guide. He was really funny and knew his stuff.
Enjoyed the morning tour so much decided to sign up for the afternoon one too. Our guide was fantastic!
Angelo was our son's favorite tour guide. Looking at paintings for them was a lit boring after an hour or so. He kept them engaged and interested.
Angelo was terrific. He brought plenty of energy to the tour, was knowledgeable, and had great pacing for our family.
Very knowledgeable
Teresa was amazing! She was so knowledgeable and the info she gave was so interesting. She has a real passion for art which was great to be around.
There was a small group of five on this tour which allowed Angelo to give an intimate look at the Uffizi. He was so engaging that others not on the tour would stop and listen to his presentations. The tours were everything we had hoped and we can't wait for our Evening in Rome tour tomorrow!
Bernardo was an excellent and enthusiastic teacher and we left with such a rich experience of Renaissance art. We were utterly delighted to have chosen this guided tour over other options and have recommended your tours already to others.
Again, Emma was very good and we really enjoyed our time with her!
Teresa is the most wonderful story teller! She brought the Medici family and all the artists and artwork to life for us. It was the perfect way to explore the Uffuzi Gallery. Grazie Mille!
Teresa was amazing!! This tour was perfect! I loved hearing about some of the history behind the paintings too!
Just really great :-)
Excellent tour.
After our experience withAngelo on the morning tour, We looked forward to another tour with hi. In the afternoon. We have happily recommended your tour company (and Angelo) to other travelers we've met on out trip.
It was a very gratifying experience to have Ismael bring the art to life for us.
Charles...history buff.
See above.
Both guides were knowable informative and helpful I highly recommend them thanks to Both of them
This was a great tour! Theresa was an outstanding guide with so much knowledge, we enjoyed it immensely .
Bernardo was very instructive and entertaining. We learned a lot that we wouldn't have understood viewing the Uffizi without a guide.
Angelo was knowledgeable and answered all questions about the great works of art we saw. He really was able to explain the rise of Renaissance art and differentiate painters and sculptors, their importance and their legacy. Highly recommend.
Same Guide from the Duomo tour, great day full of information and history!
As above
Angelo pointed out the highlights of this museum and gave us several different theories for many of the pieces. We enjoyed hearing about the personal lives of the artists as well.
Angelo was my guide. What a delightful and knowledgeable guide. I enjoyed the tour immensely. Thank you for getting me on the tour at the last minute.
My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Uffizi Gallery. Angelo was an absolutely amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable and explained things in a way that made everything so interesting.
Angelo was superb in sharing his vast knowledge of the Uffizzi and its contents. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience!! Thanks so much!!
Our guide Klaus is really captivating. He made the art come alive with the history and the stories behind them. He is truly a gem.
Same as above
I really enjoyed this tour and found Angelo to be an engaging and helpful guide. At times he spent a lot of time on individual paintings when I would have preferred to have moved on to a different painting.
Same guide and he was terrific
Asked to be sure I was in Angelos group again. I have already recommended your company and only wished I had taken more of your tours.m well done
The guide was informative and showed his own interest in his subject which made it more enjoyable. We liked the background stories to the paintings and the chronological order he put the paintings in so we left feeling we had learned something
I actually stayed with the same group lead by Charles. Another well run tour.
Teresa was a wonderful guide and she taught me and made the Uffizi less daunting. I would highly recommend her for another tour.
Angelo explained everything in detail. He is excellent. I am so glad to have him for this tour. Learned a lot from him.
What I enjoyed about the Florence tours was Teresa's huge knowledge and love of art. Her passion for it was infectious. Really enjoyable day.
Teresa was fantastic! Her enthusiasm for the art really showed.
Teresa was fantastic! Her enthusiasm for the art really showed.
Charles was so knowledgeable and passionate about everything we saw - amazing tour, fantastic guide. Also he allowed time to enjoy the experience.
Angelo was a fantastic guide. We thoroughly enjoyed his tour.
Teresa's knowledge was outstanding and made this tour highly enjoyable.
Great tour.
Same guide. Same comments
Lovely gal and wanted to share her knowlege with us!
So glad we had a guide on this tour. Charles was fantastic.
Guide ask excellent. Extremely informative. Highly recommend.
Same.
Outstanding guide. Wealth of information, but not overwhelming in presentation. Bo criticism; only praise. Rosemary Bleha
Vincenzo was a wonderful guide! One of our favorite tours! Great way to see the Uffizi Gallery.
Ismael was amazing! His knowledge and passion for Florence is exemplary. Ismael is THE standard by which all other tour guides should be measured. Pity Ismael cannot lead ALL your Walks of Italy - he's THAT good. You need to clone him... or at least think about it.
Excellent. Very informative and interesting.
See above as the review I wrote for TripAdvisor covers both tours. I submitted the review today and it should be published in 2 days.
Charles was absolutely amazing. His enthusiasm and knowledge was extremely impressive. I would recommend him to anyone going to Florence.thank you Ali Keefe
Great guide! His explanation was very clear! he had great story telling skills and he used lots of examples and told us good jokes to explain the history. We really learned a lot and had a great time.
Angelo was the best guide we have ever had. He truly made the tour fascinating and insightful. We cannot praise him highly enough!!!
Our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. We both very much enjoyed the tour.
Same as earlier tour.
Charles made the tour fun and very educational
Loved the Uffizi thanks to our wonderful tour guide, Angelo! We learned so much about Renaissance and Medieval Art! Now have a greater appreciation!
A benefit if Charles had used similar umbrella as Angelo
Angelo was an awesome guide. Very knowledgable and kept things interesting
Elvira again was marvelous. I would recommend her highly.
Klaas was so informative and had a great energy. We learned a lot and felt engaged for the entire tour. He showed us the main works and also gave us a good understanding of the background. I would recommend this tour and Klaas.
Our guide was more of an art teacher than a tour guide. Thanks to Ismael we gained a good understanding of the basics of religious Italian art, the characters, styles and stories, from medieval times to the baroque, that we could then apply throughout the rest of our travels.
Klaas was extremely knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about art. Very entertaining. We enjoyed the tour.
Very passionate guide. Brought the art to life. Made paintings more than paintings with the back stories.
Excellent!
So pleased to get the back story of this artwork. I was intrigued and entertained throughout. Highly recommend.
The artwork in Florence is magnificent! Our guide, Ismael, was exceptionally well-versed and truly knowledgeable in fine arts. He gave us a wealth of information in just a few hours.
Ismael was professional, engaging, passionate about the subject matter of the tour, and very pleasant. We had a terrific time.
Our guide was extremely knowledgable and passionate about the art. Did a wonderful job of taking us along a journey through the world of art during the Medici family rule.
Charles was knowledgeable and really made the history and the art come to life. Couldn't have asked for more
Our guide on this tour was Charles David and he was great. He was very knowledgeable on the art that we were seeing. You could tell he knew what he was talking about when he explained the pieces. Highly recommend
Amazing. Angelo was fantastic.
The tour guide was incredible! He really led us through the history of art from pre-Giotto to Baroque, showing us what to look for and how things changed. It was very interactive and I enjoyed it quite a bit.
Great tour. Wonderful use of time. Our guide was outstanding.
Angelo was a fantastic guide-knowedgeable and humorous
Thank you Elvira for an incredible day. We were lost in wonder of the beautiful works and your explanation made them come alive.
Angelo was unbelievable! He described everything we saw and answered all questions. Made visiting another museum entertaining and interesting. Kept everyone moving, but didn't feel rushed. I would highly recommend this tour.
The tour was great and our guide was extremely informative. She gave us great information on our tour.
I am not an art fan, But, Teresa did a very good job of talking about the art and the Ufizzi that made it very interesting.
Again, an excellent experience!
Christina was a wonderful and engaging tour guide. Very pleased with this tour - highly recommend it.
We particularly enjoyed Charles' anecdotes about the artists and their relationships with one another. Although art history often bores me, Charles kept it quite interesting.
Charles is and informative and engaging guide. His story telling was great - at the end of the day we felt that we learned so much about the history and culture of Florence.
The same nice feeling as the first part.
Strongly recommend
guide excellent true art historian
Angelo could explain any detail of any painting in the Uffizi with a simple explanation. Angelo was extremely interesting to listen to because he told everything as a story. He answered all of my curious questions with warmth. My Mom and I could tell how much passion he has for art.
Excellent tour and guide
Angelo was very engaging and knowledgeable. He was both instructive and entertaining and had a great sense of humor while interacting with the group. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Angelo was an excellent guide and explained everything with clarity and passion.
This tour was absolutely fabulous. Great guide and awesome experience. Even the kids were raving about how much they loved it.
We did the double tour and while we greatly enjoyed both parts, it almost got too long, especially considering the crowds and the heat. Our guide, however, was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She certainly gave us our money's worth! Overall, this was a great tour and we got to see SO much!
Great tour! Angelo was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and fun! Would recommend and ask for Angelo. Chuck and Rebecca Rao
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour through the major art works in the Uffizi with Charles. The gallery is daunting with the its sheer volume of amazing art but David gave a fantastic overview of the various art periods and took us to specific highlights. Now need to go back and explore the rest.
Tour was great and the guide clearly had an art background. Great experience.
We had Charles for this tour too. Same feedback as above.
Ishmael was fabulous. Wish we could have dreamed up another reason to have him share his knowledge with us again
excellent
it is good that there is a break between these two tours -together they make for a very long day
The guide was excellent-full of information and passionate about the art.
we had the same Guide, Therese, for the afternoon and again, she was highly knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. The paintings were very well chosen to give us a good overview of this immense gallery. Just what we wanted. Will recommend it to others.
Guide was excellent, knowledgable and well spoken. He made the tour enjoyable and informative, would highly recommend this tour especially if you are short on time and want a meaningful tour.
amazing fantastic tour, Theresa was an enthusiastic guide, one of my favorite activities in Italy
Tour was exceptional ! Very knowledgeable and showed us the 'best' of the Uffizi !
Very professional and informative. Pleasant and accommodating.
Another wonderful tour. Your guides are passionate about the history of Italy and it shows. This was money well spent and I would not hesitate to use this service again.
Great guide. Focused on the art and the changes over the years. Did not waste time but spent plenty of time on the important stuff!!
Excellent
Very knowledgable and very funny. Thank you
Bernardo was possibly the best guide I've ever had. Excellent!!
This tour was with Ishmael. Great guide. Also interesting and I learned a lot. Would recommend to others.
Amazing!
Really enjoyed her knowledge of the art works.
Ishmal was our guide and he was such a source of information. We were able to see and learn so much more in a shorter period of time than if we were on our own.
It was a whirlwind tour but I think we saw everything we needed to see. The guide was knowledgable and personable. We only had one day to do this tour and David & the Duomo and I believe having an expert walk you through and explain and point out things is the best way to go.
Costanza is a very knowledgeable guide. She makes the tour very interesting and her explanation is very clear. We had a wonderful time.
Angelo is an excellent guide. We really enjoyed the tour of the Uffizi and would recommend Walks of Italy to our friends.
We had a great tour with an incredibly knowledgeable guide - it was like an entire semester of art history in real life all in one afternoon!
2 1/2 hours flew by! Klaus carefully chose the masters for us to view and understand - and a few favorites of his, too. The Uffizi needs a few benches - but the tour couldnt be improved upon!
I really like the tour! The guide had knowledge about art and told us good stories about the painters.
Costanza was excellent - so good, in fact, I was registered for her morning tour and signed up over the phone for her afternoon tour. She really knows her stuff.
Fantastic way to see the Ufizi- our guide Charles, was the best- really informative- he brought it alive for us
I am puzzled, because my wife already did a review. Without repeating it, I must say that Charles was a terrific guide. We would definately use your company in Florence or other cities.
This tour was fantastic! Paul was a great guide - energetic, engaging, knowledgeable and fun. I was sorry when the 2.5 hours was over. Would highly recommend this tour.
The Uffizzi tour was the most fabulous of the trip.Our tour guid had a weath of knowledge without being boring.Eneven for those without art history experience he kept us enthralled. We saw sienna on 1 October Bene our siena guide was lovely.It was raining but we hardly noticed.
The tour guide, Claus from the Netherlands, was absolutely top-notch. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and energetic and you could sense his passion. There were 5 of us and everyone was complimentary of Claus and felt that he really put Italian art and history in a perspective
Very good tour. Guide was peppy and informative. It was obvious she was proud of Florence and Florentine art.
Excellent tour. Our guide was very good.
Both tours were excellent, and I would recommend them to anyone. The Food Tour was particularly enjoyable, because we learned so much and ended the trip stuffed! The guides were organized, knowledgeable, and fun. Both tours were well worth the money.
This tour was fantastic! Paul was a great guide - energetic, engaging, knowledgeable and fun. I was sorry when the 2.5 hours was over. Would highly recommend this tour.
My mother and I had a wonderful time on the tour. It was great to have a smaller tour group; we were able to ask questions and interact more with our guides. We would recommend this to anyone else looking to get more out of their time in Florence.
Paul in particular was AMAZING. I learned so much from him and he was so passionate about everything

We took two tours in Rome and two in Florence. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and personable . We enjoyed every minute of the tours. The guides make the history come to life. We will definitely book other tours when in Italy. Thank you for enriching our Italian experience
We took the Uffizi Museum tour with Helen in Florence. She was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, well-spoken and interesting. We enjoyed our tour with her and would be happy to use your services again when travelling.

This tour was great. Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. Our overall experience with this company was Excellent!
Always take a tour when visiting Italy. Walks of Italy tour guides were fantastic. Our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. Her Knowledge of Italy especially in Florence was impressive. I highly recommend a Walks of Italy tour. We took 3 in Italy and all 3 were exceptional
Paul was our tour guide. He is super fantastic. His humor kept us totally engaged the entire tour. Learned so very much. Much to see and hear in such a short time. Loved every minute.
Had a great tour today with Charles - very knowledgable and passionate about the art and Florence. We were educated and entertained. Thank you, Charles!
We LOVED Ismael, our guide--FANTASTIC!
If you're lucky enough to get the English tour guide Helen on this tour, this turns out to be an amazing and enriching way to see and learn about some of the best works in Italy. Very concise, efficient, and entertaining!
Excellent tour , informative,fun and entertaining Paul was a star !
Swell tour. Easy, humorous (important)' answered all our questions.
Our tour was fantastic. The Uffizi is so overwhelming. Our tour guide , Bernardo brought the art to life. He really helped us to understand the history of Florence and the great masters. He was very entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour.

Cristina was great. Very informative. Excellent tour.

Highly recommend. Take some extra time before or after the tour to explore this museum.
With 5 of us there was a range of interest and i thought the event found a good "middle of the road" in terms of time at each aspect and only pointing out the highlights..
Very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable guide. Love that the tour numbers are low. Guide was never rushing us and we could take our time. Loved it thank you very much
Teresa was fabulous! I learned so much from her and her style of educating was informal but professional. She has an easy going personality and her knowledge of art history was phenomenal, too. This tour is highly recommended!
Teresa was well-informed and very gracious. She helped my mother-in-law with a medical issue during the tour. She was also gracious enough to help us locate a cab service after our tour since my mother-in-law was a bit ill. Everything was perfect in terms of the tour.
Charles Adler, our tour guide, gave us a very informative and interesting tour of the Uffizi. We covered just a small part of the Museum, but it was a very quality tour that creates a desire for us to come back next year for another tour, hopefully with Mr. Adler again.
(No comment)
Very knowledgeable guide.Good pace and we were left with some time in the museum to explore on our own which was nice.
We met up with Costanza outside of the Uffizi Gallery and she gave us a little history of the family and the site. We then proceeded in and began our tour. Our group was small so we did not use the earphones. Costanza did an excellent job of choosing what works of art to highlight in the tour. She mezmorized us with her way of "painting a picture with words" of what the conditions of life were like for the artists when the paintings were created. She pointed out features in each painting and techniques used by the artist. Before we knew it, our tour was ending. We could have listened to her all day!
I am generalizing all of my tours with my comments. We also did 3 tours in Rome the 3 days prior. ALL of the guides were top notch. Everyone had such passion for the information that we learned. They were welcoming of questions and very informative. I would highly recommend Walks of Italy to anyone. Thanks for a great experience on all 5 tours that we did.
Very nice!

Knowledgable and friendly. Informative tour.
So much to see, so little time. Our guide did her best to point out important works of art, but it was pretty overwhelming.
Too crowded. She did the best she could. Too many people and too small rooms. She gave very interesting talks on art and history.
The tour leader was amazing! She had a story to tell and was excited to tell it through the art she showed and the passion with which she did it. Wonderful.
Our guide was fantastic as were the people who met us at the appointed meeting spot. Will recommend
The tour was a great primer about learning Uffizi's collections. Paolo was a wonderful guide in taking us around the collections. After "soaking in" all that information, it was difficult to "go back in" and see the rest of the collection that was not part of the tour. That is no fault of Paolo nor Walks Of Italy. We highly enjoyed the tour and Paolo guiding us.
Awesome guide. Learned a lot!
Angelo was the best guide of our trip. Overwhelmed by all the art and beauty.
I do not recall the guide's name but she was very informative and enthusiastic. I would absolutely recommend the tour and the guide. Am so glad I took it instead of doing the audio guide.
Fantastic Guide her passion for her job really shone through! We had a young family in our group which included two girls 11& 12 years and Theresa's enthusiastic delivery of her knowledge was so very much appreciated!
This was my first guided tour of a museum and I really enjoyed it. You can walk through a museum and marvel at the talent and creations, but having a guide to explain what you're looking at and answer questions really makes a difference. Our guide was well informed, seemed interested in us and the art, and was eager to point out her favorite works and why she liked them.

Best tour I did in Florence. Angelo was so great, informative, enthusiastic & interesting! This was the first tour I did & no other tour compared. Thank you, thoroughly enjoyed it!!
Very much enjoyed this amazing tour!
Charles was excellent.
Paolo was a great guide. He shared his expansive knowledge with us on art and art history. He was very interesting and thoughtful. We would use Walks of Italy again.
Paolo was a super guide - Truly one of the best we have had. He was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the tour immensely and wished we had a movie of his commentaries to keep for our reference - the content of his talk was so very interesting and worthwhile, didn't want to miss a word of it. Having Paolo's input to our visit made a huge difference to our appreciation of what we were seeing and experiencing. Many many thanks.
Wonderful guide! Eshmael was terrific. Actually had him for 2 of my 3 walking tours in Florence. He was very knowledgeable, easy to follow and had a warm sense of humor.

We thought the tour was one of the best we have had. Paolo talked about art in the 1500's in a way that was interesting and informative, and we learned a great deal from him. Fabulous job!

Guide was fantastic. We were held up too long by a couple that couldn't find the location. Sorry for them, but I paid for a full tour, not a partial tour.
Our guide, Paolo, was very engaged and was a great tour guide. Very passionate about the artwork. I still remember the intensity in his eyes!
