I initially booked this tour, as I have in Barcelona with Viator, to avoid queuing but as in Barcelona we found our tour not only got us straight in to the attractions but was also most informative and our guides , Sylvia and Roberta, were terrific. As it was January and there were only four of us on this tour we were asked to substitute The Uffizi for Pitti Palace. We were happy to do this but it was made very clear that to stay with the original itinerary was not a problem. Would thoroughly recommend.
I had never seen this section of the Pitti Palace before and was so thrilled to see it. Our guide is an art expert and was full of information. The Pitti is much more beautiful in the interior than Versailles. Of course the exterior grounds and exterior architecture of Versailles are superior, yet the Pitti wins the day.
The Guide was well documented and had an interesting presentation during the tour.
Very happy to having included this tour in our trip.
A unique and valuable experience in broadening our knowledge about Florence history.
Wonderful experience with a small group. The Vasari Corridor is not widely known which is a plus for visitors. Excellent guide using headphones so that we could look and listen. Along the walls are the most wonderful self-portraits of all the well-known artists from earlier times to modern. Wonderful views from all the windows along the way with plenty of time to photograph, not at all hurried.
Roberta was great!
Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We would never have appreciated the real and hidden wonders of the Pitti Palace without him. It was great and I will not hesitate to recommend the tour to my friends.
Great experience with the guide enhancing the experience.

Thoroughly enjoyable visit. Our guide, Maurizio, was excellent. He was extremely well-informed and added greatly to our visit.
A really enjoyable tour, informative guide. Probably a little pricey, but still enjoyed it.
Roberta, the guide, was terrific. For a start she identified us as her guidees amongst a sea of fellow touristsas soon as she walked up to the front of the Pitti Palace. The next two hours were spent lapping up her knowledge and enthusiasm. They flew by. By the end we felt both educated and entertained. It was a great tour.
Since my husband and I had a tour of Uffizi before this tour, we were hoping for more information on the Boboli Gardens than what was offered.
Excellent tour however it was heavy on the art, I would have liked to hear more about the scandals!! Great opportunity for different photo ops.
Our guide was very knowledgeable on this tour of the Vasari Corridor. We truly learned about this passage way for the royalty to pass from one palace to another without walking through the people outside. We did not go through the entire gardens as they were, as we noticed, an uphill climb.
Our guide was pretty good, took us through this 2 hour walking tour to a few of must-go places in Florence and provided useful information, history, background....etc.
I highly recommend this walking tour, especially for the first-time visitors in Florence to help them determine what they want to see in more depth within a short stay.

Walking the Vasari Corridor, seeing the pictures and getting information from a knowledgeable guide on who had walked these halls in decades past was a great way to spend an hour.
There really wasn't any line to skip. The guide did a very good job of explain the Pitti history as we toured. Thanks.
The Vasari Corridor was fascinating. Excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable. I would have appreciated a guided tour of the gardens as they are immense and surely there are highlights.
The tour guide was fine, but it was more difficult to hear her as this operator does not use wireless headphones. She had to speak up over other people and it wasn't always easy to hear. She appeared knowledgeable and was pleasant. It was worth doing, but if I did it again, it would be with an operator that uses the headphones which we had for two other walking tours with another well known operator in Firenze.
Guide was late and not as good as most we have had! The Vasari corridor is quite amazing and we enjoyed the experience. I guess since it was late in the season they just said we could visit the gardens on our own, but no reference was made to them. Skip the line always a good time saving option!
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.
Very knowledgeable guide, quite comprehensive. Well worth doing. Many thanks
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.
