We are four friends 40s-50s, and none of us enjoyed this tour. The activity was not misrepresented, we just learned that we definitely do not like group earbud tours. It is just too boring. I will never book any sort of group earbud tour again. If this is your thing, there is nothing wrong with the tour.

Our guide was not very good. He spoke in a monotone, taking way too much time on each point he wanted to make. We left the group after the first 45 minutes in the Uffizi so that we could at least see the Birth of Venus and Medussa, which we are sure the group never got to see because he spent a minimum of 20 minutes on each painting--none of which were famous!
