Ricardo is the best!
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.

Ricardo was a fantastic guide to the Uffuzi. We knew nothing about Renaissance art and he made it easy and fun. 1 and 1/2 hour tour was perfect.

Private Tour with outstandingly excellent tourguide Ricardo
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!

Dear Customer, as communicated by telephone we are really sorry about what happened. Unfortunately due to the consequences of Covid-19 we have reduced staff and the booking of your tour has not been registered and organized, fortunately it was a problem related to only a few days, now we are perfectly reorganized and we will be able to continue the excellent work done so far . As agreed, the full refund has been made and we offer you a discount for the next tour in one of our Italian destinations. I hope to hear from you soon so that we can personally apologize for what happened. Sincerely. the Keys of Italy team

We fell in love with Uffizi
Jul 2020
Our guide (Martina) was amazing. She has a passion for (cultural) history, grew up in the region, and could tell us all kinds of different stories and intricacies.
We learned a lot, and fell in love with the museum and all of it's timeless art. We'll be visiting Uffizi a few more times for sure!

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.

Feb 2020 • Couples
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.
