Very enthousiast guide, who made the walking tour a travel through the history of painting.
The tour was very good, our guide was knowledgeable, I would recommend it to other people.
This is a wonderful tour made all the more enjoyable by our guide Vanessa. She was truly gifted at making the history and culture come alive. Her passion for the subject was infectious. I particularly loved her descriptions of the self portraits through the Vasari Corridor and her knowledge of the great art was a stand out. This was a highlight for me.
The Corridor itself is truly worth the visit not just for the history but also for the surprisng and spectacular views gained along the way.
If you get the chance, do this tour and in particular see if you're lucky enough to have Vanessa as your guide! She is pure joy!
What a fantastic experience, this was the best way to see this place and get the best out of it. Our guide was knowledgable and informative, I recommend this as the best way to see the Uffizi gallery and Vasari corridor.

This tour was amazing! Our guide, Mario, was very knowledgable and made it a truly memorable experience. I highly recommend this to anybody traveling to Florence as the best way to see the Uffizi. Then you get the added benefit of experiencing the Vasari Corridor.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
The Vasari corridor walk was amazing.
The tour was perfect. Very professional guild with knowledge and passion for the arts and history.
The tour of the Uffizi was limited to just a few of the main items. We chose the 3pm tour and the gallery was extremely busy so it would have been difficult to see more. Our tour guide, Guilana, was excellent - very informative. Excellent tour of the Vasari corridor - just our small group of about 15 so a nice contrast to the Uffizi part of the tour. Highly recommended.
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!
Our tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. Our family enjoyed this tour immensely.

Brilliant guide who made the tour so interesting and enjoyable
very cool tour, crowded inside but unavoidable, Vasari Corrider interested not crowded secret passage.
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 !!!
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
