Amazing trip in amazing city. KInd people, good shoping, food was magnific!
Tours can be made or broken by the guide and this one was led by Maurizio of Florence Pass tours and he was great! Funny, knowledgeable, obviously passionate and proud with a real love for the city, it's history, it's art and it's people. The private tour of the Vasari Corridor was not to be missed and I got the feeling he would have stayed there much longer if we could. It was also a small group of 8-10 which made it very personal. Awesome and inspiring! I came away wanting to read the biographies and histories of many of the artists because of his engaging and charming portrayal of the art we were witnessing. Book it and you won't be disappointed.
A really excellent tour. Full of history, wonderful views, works of art all explained by a wonderful interesting guide. A great opportunity and avoiding the crowds.
Wonderfull tour and superb guide Giulia. This is my third visit to Firenze and first tour with the local tour operator. It was fantastic. I would highly recommend this tour for the knowledge imparted and experience of seeing the fantastic Uffizi and wonderful Vasari corridor.
Great tour, Caterina was a great guide - very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
My first Group tour and it was totally fantastic!
The guide was charming and very knowledgeable about art history
Vasari Corridor itself was well worth visiting and a group is the only way to do so
Easy walk and very reasonably priced
Viator makes everything easy, directions are precise and easy to follow
We had the best day. Your representatives met at at each station with tickets, times of arrival, and departures. We did the Hop on Hop off bus, which is such a great way of seeing the sights. We spent many hours in Florence and arrived back in Venice at 11 pm. Thank you.
This was the total VIP package. We even got to skip in front of the other skip the line ticket holders and tours. The guide was very interesting and knowledgeable.
the ufizzi docent roberta is very knowledgeable about the gallery, paintings, and history of medici. she's very professional and has the ability to waltz us right into the gallery while a long line of people waiting. the afternoon vasari corridor and accadeia gallery tour was led by maurizio. he's a florentine and is very proud of the city and its history. he knows his michelangelo by heart. also, with him you can also waltz into accademia without waiting like all the single ticket holders.
if you love art and history, not content to just take a quick photo of david and birth of venus, do this tour with this company, florence pass!!! Highly recommend!
An interesting tour with an interesting guide who was passionate and knowledgable about the history of the corridor and the artworks. Spoke clearly and was eager to answer questions
Great, our guide Luccia was excellent. It was well worth the money. Small group and not rushed.
Fantastic tour. Mauricio was very knowledgable and having access to the Vasari Corridor was amazing. Greatly way to use a full day in Florence without wasting time figuring out where to go or what to see. Highly recommended.
With a small group it was easy to hear the guide. As is was a timed entry we were separated from the other groups and so had plenty of space to look at everything in peace and quiet. It was a very interesting experience for those of us who had an interest in art and renaissance history. I loved being able to look down on the crowds mingling around on the bridge below us and imagining what it must have been like in the time of the Medicis.
This tour went into details of the art work collection
Very knowledgeable guide, quite comprehensive. Well worth doing. Many thanks
Excellent trip. We were 4 people and we gave 440, instead if we would have done the same on our own it would cost 582 euro! Well organized and lovely way to look around Florence. Highly recommended.
Tout était vraiment parfait, le prix et élevé mais c'est sans doute un niveau imposé par le musée pour ouvrir ce passage exceptionnel. Activité à ne pas rater si on veut profiter à fond de son séjour: beauté des tableaux, et des panoramas depuis ce corridor. Encore merci à note guide.
Highly recommend this tour. Florence Pass tour guides were so knowledgable. Maurice took the time to pint out many interesting sites on our walk to academia, which I considered a bonus!
This is a wonderful tour of the amazing UFFIZI GALLERY and the VASARI CORRIDOR is a must,
The early start was great as the weather had been very hot. The light snack in the very nice cafe was very well organised.
BARBARA our guide was excellent as she is very knowledgeable about history and art plus she ischarming and very bubbly her passion for art truly shows through.
The only glitch we had were the instructions for meeting the guide were not clear therefore I emailed VIATOR the previous day requesting clear instructions on where to meet - to date I still have not had a reply.
We were lucky in that we happened upon another family who were ibooked on the same tour who also
Did not have clear instructions - luckily by default we found our tour . Thank you BARBARA for a wonderful tour.
One of the best tours I have ever done - the guide was amazing and we saw so much. If you are only going to the to Uffizi for one day / half a day, DO THIS TOUR!!!
Great guide and outstanding visit of the Gallery and the Vasari Corridor!
Fantastic! Must do in spite of the crowds.
Our guide was fantastic and very informative. The tour was well coordinated and on time. A very informative and entertaining tour.
Excelente! Put tour guide Mario Gesu went abouve and beyond not only showing up but also teaching us how to recongize art when we see it.
Highly recomend it!!!

A fantastic tour of history and art through the ages. What a contrast from the crowds and noise of the Uffizi galley to the silence of the Vasari corridor. A helpful tip though- the Vasari corridor is not climate controlled and can get very hot. Also, the Vasari corridor has many sensitive paintings- that can not be touched. DO not bring children on this tour. It will only get you in major trouble. For adults, this is a not to be missed glimpse into the past. Fascinating also to hear of the corridors role in WWII. The Academia Gallery is worth it for the walk through Florence as you follow the path of David when it was moved in 1575. They moved it 50cm at a time! On the walk you will see works by Donatello among other things. Just be alert and don't get so wrapped up in the tales of the guide that you get in the path of traffic. Note: there is a lot of ground to cover and its a fairly brisk pace. Again, maybe not the best tour for small children but awesome for adults who can appreciate what is told.
