Very informative. Not sure how you could solve the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 which is the 3 hour length. I think same price but done in 2 parts might be worth a try.
The Uffizi is a very difficult visit. A guide is essential. Martino was knowledgeable and could read the crowds and knew his targets so our group was able to navigate to see the most important parts of the collection from good vantage points. Martino had the art experience to give excellent background information and filed all our questions. A Context Tour is the best way to see the Uffizi!
This was an outstanding tour. I worked briefly with Context many years ago as a young student, and followed a number of other people's tours to see how things were done. I am now an experienced registered guide with multiple post grad qualifications, and whilst I am an easy and encouraging audience I'm probably not easy to impress. This was the best guided tour I have ever followed by a very long way. Helen is sensitive, kind, pleasant and good humoured, her approach is historically solid and yet personal and insightful, she is relaxed and yet her tour is structured, gradually building on each element she introduces. She is warm and authentic, despite the difficult working conditions imposed by the crowds at the Uffizi. Both her narrative and personality were captivating.
