We couldn't have gotten a better tour! Our guide Roberta was so highly competent that it was a lot of fun to follow her! We first visited the Galeria Patina. There are as many paintings of as high a rank as we did not expect. We liked that almost better than the Uffizi Gallery. There are a surprising number of masterpieces by well-known artists that you would not find on your own. In the palace we visited the Medici apartments. Great! The tour through the garden was impressive with lots of background information on the origin and meaning of the skluputs and the gardens. Roberta took a lot of time for us. We were lucky and there were only four of us! We can recommend this tour 100%!

An absolute highlight! We were able to experience the tour with Roberta. She is a great guide! We booked the tour in English (better offers). Your english is great. She explained everything to us very precisely, gave us tips. It always referred to actual sources, which was really great. Unfortunately it rained when we were in the gardens. Our small group persevered. Unfortunately, some had to go because they had booked another tour. When only our small group was left, they just continued in German! The tour was absolutely great, super informative and our guide super personable. We book the next tours directly through FlorencePass, but also if you book through GYG: check out the Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens; Worth it!
