Excellent tour guide, good equipment, skip the line was well worth it!

This tour was excellent - the meeting place was well signposted and easy to find, the team were organised and professional, and explained what we'd be doing and set everything out initially, which I thought was useful to know. Skipping the line was the only reason I bought the ticket, but the real value actually came from the guide herself, she was very knowledgable about Uffizi and the city itself, and happy to chat throughout the tour and answer questions. Mid way through I had the chance to grab a coffee from a coffee shop en-route during a 5 min break, which was perfect timing. If you plan to see the Uffizi Gallery I'd highly recommend this tour purely for the additional insight and convenience you'll get from the guide. I would book again :)

Bien en general

Nuestro fin principal era ver la Uffizi, pero si su plan es visitar Fiesole o conocer Florencia se queda corta ( a Fiesole fuimos en el autobús y el guía nos explicó lo más importante). Ya en Florencia centro sí nos explicó bastante, pero que quedase Santa María de las Flores sin explicar no me gustó. Creo que sería mejor sacar Fiesole de la ruta y anhadir más puntos en Florencia centro. Por lo demás todo muy bien, guía muy amable y perfecto espanhol. A mi parecer este tipo es ideal para gente poco organizada. De no haber ido con el guía no hubieramos podido entrar en ningún momento en las Ufizzi.

Gran tour

Excelente, lastima que el tiempo no acompañase durante el recorrido toscano. tanto la guía florentina como la guía de la Galería espectaculares, sobre todo en la galería (Patricia), nos preguntó si teníamos prisa y cuando el tour debería de haber finalizado a las 18:00, a las 18:45 seguíamos dentro (eso si ya nos estaban echando que cerraban). Un autentico máster en Pintura, escultura e Historia Italiana y sobre todo florentina.
