My husband and I were hugely disappointed by this tour. Friends had raved about the Ufizzi Gallery. Our guide, who neither introduced herself nor gave her art history background, did not give any information as she walked us 15-minutes from the tour office to the Uffizi Gallery. She appeared disinterested. She rushed us through the gallery, pointed out a few famous art works, and skipped one crowded area completely. I wonder if this was her first tour or if she was a last minute replacement! In addition, the 2-hour tour lasted from 3:15 - 4:30 and the first 15 minutes were walking in silence to the gallery. I would like my 123.74 back for the worst tour I have ever taken.
Had a good tour to Uffizi, covered all the must see masterpieces, and our guide did a great job given the time constraints of 2 hours in a place as large as the Uffizi. Appreciated the free time following the end of the tour to further browse inside the Uffizi. Definitely worth the price, and you skip the lines to boot.
Excellent tour! It was exactly what we were expecting, as non-expert tourist who wished to get some understanding of the Renaissance art of the time: a quick 2-hour tour, not very deep but covering all the major artworks and pieces of the gallery, which I have to say, is amongst the best of the world. Only downside: the tour said skip the line and it's not entirely true you skip the line to buy the tickets, but you still have to queue to enter like you had bought the ticket via the internet in our case it was like half an hour. In any case, it was well worth it!
The 2 hour tour is the way to go. Our tour guide was friendly and smart and gave interesting information about the most famous paintings to help us see them in another light. If we had chosen to do so, we could've stayed as long as we wanted to explore the gigantic Uffizi in more depth. But for travelers on a timeline or those seeking just an overview this tour is well worth the money.
The museum is extremely crowded and loud. The headphones on this tour were not very good. There were three of us and none of us could hear well. The group was also too large. The tour guide was very nice but her English was not great. I would recommend seeing the Uffizi with a private guide or all alone. We were exhausted and hot, and didnt see as much as we would have liked.
There were two main problems which severely affected our enjoyment of the tour. First, the listening equipment headphones and mic used by the guide gave sound of appalling quality. Lots of us complained before the tour started and it didn't improve from there. It was so bad that unless we stood next to the guide so we could hear her in person it was impossible to understand what she was saying. It was so bad that at least half of the party gave up well before the end and handed their headphones back. Secondly, the length of the tour was severely curtailed. We understand that Viator cannot control entry to the Uffizi but we think it should be made clearer to customers that skip the line tickets do not exclude a long wait. We did not gain entry until an hour after our arrival at the Uffizi. We would have expected our tour therefore to be extended. In fact it only lasted for 1 hr 20 mins it was meant to be 2 hrs and the end of it was extremely rushed as the guide was rushing things through to finish near the allotted time regardless. Altogether a very disappointing tour, one we were really looking forward to and which was not cheap.
It was very confusing when we went to the designated area for our tour. Each person we spoke to told us to get on a different line. Then they couldn't find our name on their sheet. Finally they had us go to an area to wait. Our English speaking guide,that we requested, was very difficult to understand. Her English wasn't very good. Also, her microphone kept breaking ,so we couldn't hear her at all for a big part of the tour. The Uffizzi itself was beautiful,and I believe you need someone to take you around because it is so big. But there are so many tours going on at the same time that if you don't keep up with your group, you will lose them. And many did. The Uffizzi...great. The tour...not so much!
The head phones were terrible - sound quality appalling and as soon as the guide walked ahead we couldn't hear anything. It was so bad that half the group left during the tour. While the guide seemed knowledgeable the bad sound negatively impacted his commentary. Would not recommend unless headsets replaced.
