Great experience with a great tour guide!

We had a really nice tour in Uffizi. Our tour guide Francesca Messina was very informative and friendly. She really made our Uffizi experience great! We would highly recommend this tour and this tour guide if you want interesting background information about the history of the art works.

Art appreciated by novice
Aug 2019 • Couples
First we do not visit art gallaries often. However we thought Florence was one place that we could not miss. Our tour guide was the young and energetic Francesca M. She led the small group with a very engaging style. These types of tours can be terrible or great depend on the guide and Francesca made is so interesting... Highly recommend for those of you who want to learn about art whilst seeing masterpieces. Ask for Francesca, you will not go wrong.

Fantastic personal tour with Fabio
Aug 2019 • Family
Highly recommend this tour. It is an early start, but this means the gallery is not too hot, and is not crowded. Our guide was excellent - his depth of knowledge meant the tour was interesting and informative. The tour is expensive - but well worth it. Toured with my teenage daughter - didn’t book a private tour but it was just the two of us.

Worst tour guide - Fabio from Florencetown
Jul 2019 • Couples
We attended the early entry Uffizi Tour Mastercalss from Florencetown and it was the worst experience in our 16 day Italy tour. First of all, the trip is sold as an early entry 8 AM tour however that is not true. The guide Fabio takes his own sweet time and makes you wait at the waiting area and then takes you inside the gallery only at 8.30 AM when all the other tour groups also enter, so it doesn’t remain an early entry tour. In addition, in the tour that we attended there were only 6 people, an American couple with their two teenage daughters and two of us, an Indian couple from Singapore. Our guide Fabio was only the worst guide ever as in such a small group, he only concentrated on talking to and explaining to only the other couple and would turn his back to us and then speak towards the other couple only. Having paid 150 Euros for the two tickets, I got the feeling like we were not part of the small tour group but were encroaching onto a private tour of the other family. Even after I pointed out to Fabio that we were not able to hear him if he would turn his back to us, he corrected himself for sometime and then continued his specific concentration on the other couple. The most possible reason for this behaviour was his expectation for tip from the American couple ( btw, we tipped him as well). I would say avoid FlorenceTown as a tour company and Fabio definitely as a tour guide. Any other guide have done the basic tour and explaining he did and it was definitely not. Masterclass.

Dear KamyaM2, first of all thank you for choosing a Florencetown tour. We always accept all feedbacks as an essential element in our strive to continually maintain and exceed expectations, as well as provide the highest standards on our tours. I am sorry to read that you did not appreciate our tour, and in particular our guide Fabio. This is the first negative feedback we receive about Fabio, that always gets wonderful reviews, as you can check by yourself everywhere on our review channels. That’s why your feedback really surprised me and I asked Fabio his feedback. He was actually quite surprised as well, as it was absolutely not his intention to let you feel disregarded. He apologizes if you had this feeling, but he assured me he never acted to focus only on the other guests. The few times he turned his back for a moment was only to point some specific details on a painting, but he obviously momentarily turned his back to all the guests of the tour, not only to you. Knowing him for so long, and knowing his passion and care for his job, I am sure this is just a misunderstanding. Please also trust me when I say that our guides are not the kind of persons to make distinctions based on who they think will tip them. This is also the first time I read such a comment, and I guess you only wrote this on the spot because of your dissatisfaction. Fabio was also surprised to read such a review, since you did not tell him you had this feeling of being disregarded but you only told him that you could not hear him the few moments he was pointing something on a painting. Tipping him at the end of the tour also left him with the impression that everything went well. I always encourage our guests to inform the guide if something is not completely satisfying them, as this is always the best way to fully enjoy the experience and to avoid unpleasant misunderstandings like this. Or at least to inform us at the end of the tour, so that we can immediately do something for our guests. Regarding the entrance time, let me please just specify that Fabio did not just take “his sweet time”. The museum opens at 8:15, thus the first 15 minutes of the tour are used by the guide to introduce the tour and the museum itself. Then, since we reserve the tickets for our guests, as soon as the museum opens the guide needs to collect the actual tickets with the reservation number we have. Thus the actual entrance time usually varies from 8:20 to 8:35 (actually depending on the staff of the museum), but our group is always among the very first to enter. This results in finding less people inside the museum, compared to other times during the day, when the museum is more crowded. We have more than 60,000 guests from all over the world every year on our tours and I am really sorry that you had this feeling, since all our guides, chefs and tour leaders are professionals that make no distinction at all among the guests they host. Authentic hospitality for everyone is what at Florencetown we pride ourselves on, so, again our apologies for this misunderstanding and I hope we will the chance to have you as our welcome guest again in the future, should you happen to be back in Florence. Let me then please invite everyone to read several reviews on our tours, to have a more complete perspective on the quality that Florencetown delivers on them. Best regards Edoardo Giacometti Director of Shared Tours - Florencetown

Laura is a GEM! A tour worth every euro!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Generally, I hate guided tours and was skeptical when my partner bought this one since I had seen so many tour guides at the Vatican museums rushing their groups from one painting to the next. My experience with Laura, our thoughtful art historian guide, could not have been more different! Her understanding of the interconnection between the paintings was vital to my experience there, plus she was hilarious and had a feminist focus which I appreciated in such a male dominated space. I can not recommend this tour enough-- PLUS you get to skip the lines and experience the museum in it's least crowded state. Absolutely worth every euro!

Our guide, Francesca Lore, did a wonderful job showing us how painting evolved from the flat Byzantine style through the high Renaissance and into Baroque, all in the context of the history and architecture of Florence. Highly recommended.

May 2019 • Friends
Fantastic Uffizi VIP tour - our guide was extremely knowledgeable and so likeable. Not only was I looking at remarkable artwork, I was learning about the artist and the history of the piece. Our group consisted of only 6 people so it was almost a personal tour. The gallery was amazing! La Primavera by Botticelli took my breath away! I read about Florencetown tours in a travel book by Rick Steves and so glad I did. I highly recommend this company and this tour.

Highlight of our trip to Florence
May 2019 • Couples
Our guide of The Uffizi was Sara. She met us at the Florencetown booth and walked us the short way to the gallery setting the science for the building of the gallery. Avoiding the queue and taking us in was of course helpful. However it was Sara’s knowledge and passion which made the tour so throughly enjoyable and informative. It was without doubt the highlight of our visit to Florence. The tour included a coffee in the cafe on the roof terrace mid way through which was great. Thank you so much.
