This was a first class tour of both of Florence's top museums!! Our guide was clearly an art expert, though she didn't get too far into artistic debate of fine details, but instead kept the tour fast paced but always intriguing. We got quickly into Uffizi and it's so large it's overwhelming. We kept to the most significant pieces and our guide used a radio with earpiece so the group could all equally hear and she didn't need to shout (another plus). She educated me more on how art styles changed over years, differences between artists, and other significant items of interest. After a short break, off to Accademia and the magnificent statute of David and other important pieces, again after only a short wait. Great way to see a lot in a short time with a very knowledgeable guide who's English was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour.
My cousin and I had a great tour. Our Guide was Elena and she really knew her stuff. Her passion for her city and its treasures enriched the entire tour and group. Keys of Italy and Elena really take the experience of the client seriously. Thank you for a great day! Buy tickets in advance as the lines can get very long.
This tour was amazing. Our guide was so knowledgeable and patient to explain everything to us. We absolutely loved him and felt it was one of the best tours we had in Florence. We went from the Accademia, then through the city, and to the Uffizi with fun stops along the way. Florence is a museum itself and having someone to tell you the backstories and history is gold.
This was an extremely informative and professionally run tour. We were very impressed with the guide who was very knowledgeable not only about the two galleries visited and the impact of various artists but also on the broader history of Florence and the Medici family as we walked between the two galleries. Well worth the cost. Definitely preferred the smaller group arrangement in terms of accessibility and communication with the guide, and accessibility to the facilities particularly given a number of large tourist groups also present. Special mention also deserved for the organisers as my wife, son and I actually were supposed to be on the tour the day before we went but somehow mis-read the ticket nobodies fault but ours! but were accommodated by the tour manager who kindly agreed to let us go on the tour the day we turned up!
Annette was a wonderful tour guide! She explained the David and other works by Michaelangelo in a way that was easily understandable and also filled with insight. Her tour of the Uffizi was extremely comprehensive. She pointed out artworks that were both well-known, and those by well-known artists that are not typically seen. She was pleasant and very professional, had a nice sense of humor, and answered all our questions patiently. After the museums, she did a brief walking tour with us which was also very interesting. All around, a wonderful experience.
