We've done several guided tours this trip and the tour of the Uffizi with Angelo was far and away the best. The gallery is so large and so packed with people and works of art (in addition to the architecture of the building itself) that is is hard to make sense of it all. Angelo did an excellent job creating a narrative thread connecting themes and works over art over time. He's a lively storyteller with just enough bite to keep my 22 and 25 year old sons engaged in our tour. We went unguided to the Accademia the next day and that visit was enhanced by all that we'd learned from Angelo the day before.

I’d recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to receive the maximum of knowledge, entertainment and background understanding about the Italian Renaissance for a fair price. Tourguide Ricardo is highly educated and knowledgeable, yet manages to make you live the art in the Uffizi rather than merely looking at it. Highly recommendable & next time again for sure. Mille grazie!

Annette blended art history with interesting stories of the time periods she was covering in the art. We were whisked from one notable piece to another. We could have never managed the Uffizi without someone as knowledgeable as Annette.

Our guide Fabrizio was really knowledgeable and took us through the gallery explaining the development of western art and its rich cultural roots. He showed us examples of different stages and had a wealth of anecdotes about different painters. With a small group of 8 everyone was included in the discussion.

Highly recommend Keys of Italy! Our tour guide (Sara) was very knowledgeable and did a great job providing an overview of classical and renaissance art with enough detail to be engaging, without being overwhelming. She answered all our questions and was very attentive to the needs of the group. We were in good hands with Sara! She also did the Academia Gallery tour with us, and it was superb.

If you want guided tour to Uffizi make sure you ask for Ricardo. He is knowledgeable and spent most of his time explaining about all paintings. This is my 5th time visiting Uffizi with guided tour and 1st time with Ricardo and found many fascinating facts that I didn’t know! You must ask for him when you book this tour.

Angelo was an incredible storyteller! I’d been to the Uffizi years ago but this experience was special. Angelo was very comfortable with the chaos at the Uffizi and ushered us right in. The context, history and connections made between the artwork were SO fascinating. I wish we could take Angelo everywhere with us! Could not recommend this highly enough.

I completed misunderstood that the guided tour was private PRIVATE private and was expected to be joined by another couple of visitors ... but NOT ... IT WAS REALLY PRIVATE :)

Sarah was very good and her italian speaking was super easy to understand.
Lots of good information and curious details on the major "operas" and really a great experience.

Keys of Italy were very quick and clear getting us started as we met outside Uffizzi, with good audio equipment to help us hear Sara. Sara Fabbri is an excellent guide - very clear, very knowledgeable.... and fun. We saw maybe a third of the gallery in our 90 mins with Sara, but could have listened to her longer on fewer works as it was so interesting. (We're now having a coffee in the Uffizzi caffeteria, and going to explore the rest on our own.)

I really recommend this tour.

Truly enjoyed our tour with Giacomo. He provided interesting details on many of the paintings, was animated and appeared to enjoy his job. He was easy to understand and the small group tour was great as there was a much more personal attention.
