Excellent tour. Mario was an expert, very knowledgeable tour guide. his passion for Italian art was infectious.
The tour was a little academic initially, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Very informative tour, in large part because it was a small group (only eight of us) and we had a terrific guide (Vanessa). Vanessa did exactly what tour guides SHOULD do (but don't always do): she introduced herself to each couple and talked with them a bit about where they were from and engaged in real conversation. As a result, it felt like we had a personal stake in each other - a great thing. Vanessa was highly knowledgeable, very passionate about the subject matter (a huge plus!), and very personal. These are enormously important qualities for a tour guide. And it was obvious in how she treated the Uffizi staff - and how they treated her - that there is mutual respect there. The only negative: we sometimes strained to hear, because the Uffizi is so crowded, but we loved this tour.
This a mustsee again unlike other Uffuzi gallery tours which again is one of the top museums in the world.After a very knowledgeable guide showed up some of the masterpieces(even though the day before i was able to stay in the museum for at least 8 hours on my own tour) theres so much to see.We were ushered to a door which whilst there was crowds of people we were shown into the vasari corridor again one of the gems of my short florence tour.I could tell you what is held in the corridor as there is a world record involved but i think you should experience it for yourself.You will definitely not be dissappointed and a view you will never be able to experience anywhere else in the world.
Highly recommended. Go asap before they shutdown the corridor for maintenance. This tour supplemented our other visit to the Uffizi and provided additional information on Vasari that helped put Florentine history in perspective.
This tour was a real treat - the tour guide was passionate and enthusiastic and clearly knew and loved his subject. it was amazing to be in the Vasari corridor - just 8 of us - in such a privileged position - the self portrait collection was amazing - and the Caravaggio's were breathtaking
The tour of the Uffizi was also very informative and the lesson in art was fascinating - even fro those with prior knowledge as the tour guide asked questions of us all and so was an involved lesson that really made you think - would do it again!
Mario proved an expert guide, extremely knowledgeable about art and hugely personable.
Extremely interesting,learned a lot about art,saw pictures of famous painters,you can only see at this tour.We had a perfect guide,who new us from the beginning by name.teached us and even made some tests with us,how much we could remember.
I will never forget,what I learned at this tour.
We thought this was a very informative and entertaining tour and our tour guide went out of her way to make it a special experience for us despite the Vasari officer looking pretty grumpy.
We have learnt that if you don't what to wait in long queues, then your tours are the way to go.
Uffizi Gallery and Vasari Corridor were just great, and the guides were lovley.
What a treasure, most especially the Vasari Corridor. Our tour guide Michael was awesome, so knowledgeable and very witty. Even fought for us with a crowd of noisy people that entered the corridor after us. He was speaking to us-as the crowd disrupted him. Too bad he had to be the one to silence the crowd and not their tour guide (probably not Viator). I did one other tour with Viator (Pompeii), definitely recommend Viator for your tour.
Highly recommended being the only way to see the Vasari Corridor and its art work, and because our tour guide (I've forgotten his name) did a good job of engaging us and trying to teach us the differences and evolution of the different styles/epochs.
However, not the fault of the tour, photographs are not permitted at all and there are very few places to sit down even briefly. And no bathroom breaks.
