My mother recommended this tour to me, and I'm glad we did it. Having seen the Uffizi a couple of times before, without a guide, seeing just the highlights in a guided format was just perfect. My partner isn't a huge art buff, so it was perfect for him too. For us, the Vasari Corridor was the main attraction and the reason we booked. It was a fascinating insight into the Medicis way of doing things; we really felt we were walking in their shoes, being a part of that history. The only negative was the "sound machines" (as our guide called the personal audio devices) were truly awful and very difficult to hear; fortunately once we entered the corridor we were a small group and we were able to ditch them. Nevertheless, a great tour and highly recommended.
Mario was our tour guide for the Uffizi Gallery tour and he was so fantastic! Above and beyond our expectations, he engaged all of us equally, knew everyones' names (unbelievable), and taught me so much about the progression of art from the Middle Ages forward. I can't imagine a better guide. Thank you!
Was very well led by our guide Eleanor who was really knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable by picking out highlight paintings in all the rooms at the Uffizi and giving us interesting background about the artists and their work.
Vasari Corridor was amazing - having seen it on TV it was really special to actually go through it. Have looked at it so many times when visiting Florence and knew its history but to get the chance to actually walk the corridor was fabulous.
Missing all the queues was an added bonus - well worth the cost of the tour.
Although the Uffizi is always so crowded we had an excellent guide who always made sure she told us about the important handful of paintings one can see in a few hours. She was very knowledgeable and we were fascinated by the stories of the artists and the paintings. The Vasari corridor is something I've wanted to see for years and that was a real bonus. If you only have a short time in Florence, put this at the top of your list, with the Duomo and Accademia.
Vanessa was an extremely knowledgable informative guide who really made this tour value for money. Thankyou
Having toured the Uffizi Gallery on a previous trip, we were mainly interested in the Vasari Corridor. However the tour guide had a different approach to showing us the Gallery and our previous knowledge has been enhanced. The Corridor is an engineering wonder, it's history " a must hear" and the art collection it holds "a must see".
Fantastic!!! Highly recommend paying a little extra and having a guide walk you through this magnificent museum.
Marco was an excellent guide with a wonderful knowledge of art history. He highlighted various art works, outlining development from Byzantine icons to the works of Michaelangelo and Fra Filippo Lippi. He made the best of a difficult situation - hordes in the Uffizi - but ensured that we heard him and had our questions answered. The visit to the Corridor was interesting and a welcomed escape from the crowds. He made the visit worthwhile.
THE MUST! The MARIO was great!!! I can confirm that it was the best guide ever for me! realy interesting info and his approach was excellent! The Vasari Corridor is unique possibility to understand the development of art in Florence!
Fantastic tour, great experience. Vasari Corridor is really interesting and a nice break from the wonderful but extremely crowded Uffizi. Highly recommended!
Couldn't fault the trip at all. Very well organised from meeting up with the guide to entering the Uffizi and then the Vasari Corridor. Extremely knowledgable guide, Mario, who made a great effort to speak to everyone on the trip. Great value for money and would thoroughly recommend.
