Excellent
Angelo was an excellent guide, giving academic thought provoking insight into the Uffici Gallery and Accademia, as well as the buildings and areas we walked by. A very good way to see these sights when one has limited time in Florence. Other sights can be seen independently but the above is best with a knowledgeable guide.

This was an excellent tour. We gained a lot of appreciation for the City of Firenze, it's culture, it's architecture, and especially it's art. Our guide Nebojsa was so passionate, articulate, and engaging. He brought the city's history to life and made the art speak. He curated the massive Uffizi without us getting "museum-ed out" We loved it. Highly recommend. Please note, this is a long tour with lots of walking (and the art portion only focuses on Florentine artists). If you've already walked a lot in Florence or are a bit older and not used to walking some miles you might need to reconsider. We had people drop out because of the massive post covid crowds and miles put in. Other than that....a brilliant tour

Guida was a fabulous guide. She added so much to the experience. And we hardly waited for anything, saved so much time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Florence with the Academia (David) and the Uffizi. Our guide took great care of us and we learned quite a lot about the city and its art from her. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone interested in Italian art and the history of Florence.
