Everything went smoothly and as previously described. Meeting at the Tourist Info near the Uffizi Gallery was punctual and uncomplicated. With little waiting time we were able to pass the entrance quickly despite the large crowd. The German-speaking tour guide was very nice and the tour itself was very interesting and informative! We were in a small group (6 people) and everyone really enjoyed it! Then there were even some good tips for the rest of the time without company.

Giacomo is a fabulous guide. He made the whole experience so worthwhile. I had been to the Uffizi years ago and I frankly was not a huge fan, preferring museums with more varied collections. But Giacomo brought together all of the details giving the art context and history that interested the whole family

Very interesting tour of the second floor of the Uffizi with a welcoming, well informed guide with very good English (Federica). The whole experience was well-organised. You just need to pick up your ticket at the office at the back of the Uffizi 15 minutes beforehand and we were met there by the guide. After the tour, I had a coffee in the cafe, then spent another hour or two revisiting parts of the 2nd floor and then touring the 1st floor (including works by Caravaggio etc)
