Vasari corridor is stunning! Amazing art you don't get to see anywhere else, and as we did it on the first Sunday of the month the Pitti Palace was free makin the whole day amazing!
My two sons (15 and 20) and I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a way of explaining history and art which absolutely grasped our attention and it was as if she made history come to life. I chose this tour to get my sons interested in Florence and its history and it was the first activity we did in the city. My boys said they would now always prefer to go on guided tours. I felt this was money well spent and I can highly recommend this tour without any hesitation.
We all really enjoyed the Vasari Corridor Tour. No queues to wait in. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and could not do enough to inform us and please us. Wish we had more time for the Boboli Gardens it would have been great to spend more time there, but we were due in Pisa later that afternoon.
HIGHLY RECOMENDED !!!
Very interesting and guide was informative.
Tour felt exclusive as we were the only party in the corridor.
Fantastic in every way!
Our guide was awesome! He was very friendly and knowledgeable!
A privileged view of the Vasari Corridor - fascinating and, thankfully, away from the crowds
We had been looking forward to this tour for quite a long time since friends had told us they had done it in the past. We were not disappointed. The tour guide was very informative and the talks along the corridor were enjoyable. It was a pity that it was so hot on the day we undertook the tour as the heat in the gardens was oppressive.
Everything was top rate 1st class! Both our driver and guide were extremely knowledgeable and professional! We saw many highlights, had great food and a fantastic time! Both the guide and driver were flexible and got us back to the ship on time. I will use Viator for all future excursions! Fantastic company !
In spite of the cost I think this tour was exceptional value for money. My guide, Simone, was able to discuss both the technical and aesthetic sides of what makes a great photograph. As well as providing interesting historical information about the areas we were photographing we were able to seek out some of the lesser known spots for taking photographs. I now know so much more about how to assess a subject and how to approach taking photographs I feel I have come away from my holiday with some really great shots instead of just snapshots. I would very highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in capturing their holiday in photographs.
Visiting the Vasari Corridor was a special experience. I had the chills walking in the footsteps of the Medici. Our guide was great.
Fantastic experience. Shame that the guide was not with us for the gardens however they are self explanatory.
excellent tour guide - enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about art history. A once in a lifetime experience
this was something I have always wanted to do. it was worth every euro!
Simone was excellent. He reminded us that we have to 'look' at things - take that first 'snap shot' then think about what was it that caught your attention in the first place and then take photo's 'from the heart' :) He also provided a great introduction to Florence and some of the more technical aspects of using our camera's (he's a great teacher)! I would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in photography. My photo's turned a corner after this tour with him.
