Our tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. Our family enjoyed this tour immensely.
Great tour. Mario's approach was fantastic, we learned a lot. Highly recommend!
This was possibly the best tour I had been on. A smaller group of 12 people and a fantastic guide Mario who actually invested himself in you and helping you gain a knowledge of the different art periods and their characteristics which was inspiring. We hit the gallery before anyone else went in which was a treat to see Michaelangelo's works being the only people in the room! The on to the tour. The first couple hours you'll some of the world's most precious art works along with a fantastic narration from Marion. After these couple hours you will have your breakfast in a reserved section of the terrace which was just a croissant and a coffee OR juice, so have something to eat before you attend as this is just a snack.
Then onto the corridor which was truly inspiring. Containing the world's most important self portraits it was really something. This took another hour or so and then we exited into the Biboli gardens! A truly great tour and could not speak highly enough of our tour Mario!
Brilliant guide who made the tour so interesting and enjoyable
very cool tour, crowded inside but unavoidable, Vasari Corrider interested not crowded secret passage.
Guide was Barbara and she was fantastic. She brought the tour to life and was very knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Florence , a must, especially the Vasari Corridor!
It was very interesting and Mario as an interesting approach. We left with more tools to understand paintings we see on our trip. AaAlthough we saw fewer paintings than on previous trips, it was more memorable.
Highly recommend this tour and Mario was wonderful.
Informative guide, good English. A little delay getting into museum.
So much art to enjoy, Vasari corridor is very interesting. Mario Gesu was our guide and he taught us to appreciate art in a practical way, what a tour !!! He definitely personalized it and not only I enjoyed the visit but learnt so much. Thank you Mario !!!
Tour guide was excellent. A thoroughly informative and enjoyable experience.
Excellent tour, very informative guide Jessica. Not to be missed as the Vasari Corroidor is a great experience. So good I would do it again.
This was a great tour through one of the best Renaissance art galleries I've seen. The gallery can get quite crowded, but the tour guide managed to show us all the major works like the Birth of Venus. The highlight of the tour is the Vasari Corridor, which is not available to the rest of the public in the gallery. We were told to get back together at the corridor's entrance at a precise time, when the doors were opened just for our group. They let in very few people at a time, you need to keep your backpacks facing forward and stay away from the walls. But the corridor is breathtaking, with many beautiful art works that keep getting rotated from the extensive collection. The corridor passes through apartments and even a church, where the Medici family had their own private access and balcony to attend mass !! The second part of the corridor is entirely for artist self-potraits, which can get a bit tedious after a while. But the corridor itself is spectacular, giving you a brief glimpse into the power and wealth of the Medici family.
Our guide Julia was fantastic. She had great energy and knowledge of Florence, the Uffizi and the Vasari Corridor. It is a very special tour and is not to be missed. Once in a lifetime view of what the historical life in Firenze might have been.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was nice to have the small group/breakfast option. Our tour guide, Mario, worked hard to remember everyone's name and included each of us in his presentation. My husband, 10 year old daughter, and I all learned a lot. One of the best the best tours we've been on.
This tour was a highlight of our time in Florence! We felt like we got to see a secret side of the city away from the crowds. I'd highly recommend this tour for your stay in Florence
Our tour was amazing. Mario was the consummate teacher and tour guide . He was very knowledgeable and personable constantly asking a question using our names to make sure we were fully involved in the tour. Highly recommend even for people like us who have been to the Uffizzi Museum before?
A unique experience - the chance to walk the Vasari Corridor is not one to be missed. So many wonderful artworks and stories and our guide was so passionate and informative.This was the first tour I booked on our recent trip to Florence and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It is so much easier to enjoy the Uffizi in a small group and quiet of the corridor was wonderful after the frenetic activity of the main gallery. A great afternoon and one we love telling friends about.
The tour was great-our guide Julia was informative both on the art and the history of Florence.Julia had personal stories to relate and had a great sense of humour which made the tour very enjoyable.A great privilege to see the Vasari corridor.Highly recommended!
Totally worth the money to skip huge line and get a tour of the art from a knowledgeable person. Our group was small, which was good, even though the gallery in mid- March at 3:30 p.m. was packed. We received information about various masterpieces, the differences between medieval and Renaissance Art, symbolism, perspective, etc. The tour of the Vasari Corridor is not open to the public. So we really had a unique experience, the only ones in the Corridor, learning about the history of the corridor and much of the art that lines its walls. Our guide was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and enthusiastic about art.
