Brilliant Palazzo. Highly recommend Roberta as a guide, she is passionate and very knowledgable and a lovely sense of humour. Such a privilege to see the legacy left by the Medici dynasty.
As a tip, if you pre-book a guided tour and are using a e-voucher don't go to the ticket office. The ticket office will only issue you with a ticket if you are not taking a guided tour. Look for a 'tour guide', holding a folder, near the entrance line. You will be issued with a paper ticket by that person and introduced to your tour guide.
The Palazzo Vecchio is a spectacular building and our guide was quite informative. The Vasari corridor proved to be rather over rated.
The guide was good and the tour was interesting, but it was really just a short walk through a corridor lined with paintings by mostly unknown artists. The Boboli Gardens were a disappointment as although it was spring, there was no colour or flowers, the fountains weren't working, and the whole place looked like it needed some serious work.
This was a Skip the Line, but there was a special line for the tours. By the time we waited on line, went through security, and the group met a lot of time was wasted. The information about the Corridor was very interesting, but we had a sense that the guide was rushed. She seemed to be knowledgeable, but did not spend a lot of time talking about the artists and self portraits. There was little time to answer questions. The Corridor is unique and interesting and we would have liked to spend more time learning more aspects about it.
Did not start on time. Actual tour and tour guide was very good. Was difficult to find group, need to have a flag
It was an interesting walk through the Vasari Corridor , the guide was knowledgable and very friendly..
But all in all it was not worth the 85.... Overpriced
I loved the Vasari corridor. The tourist guide was very polite and also with knowledge about history of the place and arts
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.
