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.
It was good. We had already done a night tour and there was A LOT of the same information. The way Viator describes the tours, it appears as though you are getting two different tours. Not really.

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.
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.
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.
The guide was excellent. She had vast knowledge of art and history and it showed. Wonderful tour of a wonderful museum.
Great, our guide Luccia was excellent. It was well worth the money. Small group and not rushed.
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
Very lucky to have that guide. Loved the way she picked the main points of interest and came up with the period storytelling.
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
What a great place and tour, art to die for, opulence to dream of, definitely not to be missed. The guide Roberta was brilliant, passionate about art and had an engaging style which really made our tour. Thank you it was fantastic. We paid for skip the line and walked straight in and we could hear the guide all the way around, not the case on our other tour.
This was one of the very best tours my wife and I have ever taken. The Vasari Corridor Walking Tour and Pitti Palace tour with Florence Pass and Roberta were exceptional. We were one of two couples on the Pitti Palace Tour and were spoiled. Wow, what a big difference a small group makes. Even I learned things! You can hear the guide, ask questions and literally stand right next to them as they describe the art work. Thank you so much Florence Pass and Viator for making this all come together. Richard
The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting.

Had a great tour with Roberta who is both knowledgeable and entertaining with stories about the Medici family - their fabulous art collection and opulent lifestyle.
My family I did a tour of the Vasari corridor and did the skip the line Boboli gardens tickets as well. We are a family of four, two adults and two children. The Vasari corridor is a kilometer long and it's a hallway with portrait paintings. That's all. Our tour guide was nice and spoke good English, but sadly, the corridor itself is quite boring. The highlights were the views of the Arno and being able to look down on Ponte Vecchio. Regarding the Skip the line passes to Boboli, when we got there, the line wasn't too bad, so not sure we had to pay extra. It was nice to just go in and be able to explore. I have to say that Boboli Gardens is beautiful and worth seeing!
Our guide was fantastic and very informative. The tour was well coordinated and on time. A very informative and entertaining tour.
This was a fantastic tour, thank you to Maurizio, Francesca and Roberta you knowledge and passion added immensely to our enjoyment
The artworks in Pitti Palace was breathtaking. Guide was very knowledgeable.
The tour was ruined simply by the guide. She took what could have been a fascinating look at the corridor, how it was used and the Medici family and turned it into the most boring event I have ever attended. She refused to use her microphone correctly, holding it rather than attaching it to her dress. This caused her to be muffled and static sounding, half of the group removed their headsets through the tour because it was pointless to wear them. She focused not on the history of the corridor in Florence but instead took deep looks at the extremely mediocre art collection hanging in the corridor. She was also extremely rude. She refused to turn her iPad when showing pictures for the group. People asked her if she could turn it and she said no we all had to stand on one side of the corridor. Keep in mind we were the only group int he corridor and it is narrow, we could not all stand on one side, it would have been ridiculous. I explained this to her in front of the group and showed her how incredibly easy it would be for her to just move the iPad in an arc so that everyone could have a short look. She was visible angry by this, but at this point she was so annoying no one cared. Our group of six eventually moved ahead and created our own stories about the paintings because this woman and her muffled explanations were insufferable. I have never meet a more boring Italian person in my life!!!
Interesting and informative. Great for anyone interested in history or art.
