Our guide Mario was amazing! We are a family of 5 with 3 sons aged 17 - 22 and we learned a great deal without being overwhelmed with information. This was one of our best tours on a month long tour of Paris. Zurich. Venice, Barcelona, Florence and Rome! Fantastic!!

Viator uses a local tour operator for this tour and i am very happy about that. Our tour guide Aniko was simply incredible and made a point to talk about only the most interesting of details as we walked around. The combined Uffizi and Vasari Corridor tour is a must do.

The tour guide for the Uffizi was clear and concise. We learned much more than we had on previous tours. We had been to the Vasari before (our friends had not) and again, we learned more than before. It was also very nice to have the listening devices because the group was large and there were several children who were distracting. My only recommendation would be to have the tour guide give a little talk ahead of time so that the rules of the Corridor are clear to everyone. There were no rules given and the security people spent a lot of time chastising people.

The tour was absolutely amazing. Our guide, Mario Gesu, was incredible!!! Mario’s passion for the arts was contagious. The entire tour was a class in Medieval, Renaissance, Post Renaissance and Reformation paintings. We never had a tour guide like Mario, he makes us involved in the paintings, and make us understand them. The best tour guide we had ever. The tour was magical and we did not want the tour to end. I will recommend him to my friends. Stella and Karel H. - Lima - Perú.

A very interesting look at a tourist site that is different..
Being a small tour group makes this event..like a trip back in time.
For a while you may even allow yourself to be a Medici!

The tour was absolutely amazing. The history is unbelievable. It would have been nice to take photographs but like many galleries and museums it is not allowed. The Vasari Corridor has a large number of wonderful painting, and a definite for anyone visiting Florence.

This is a great tour, with a great guide. Just the right length and information in the Uffizi. The Vasari Corridor is a highlight of any trip to Florence and highly recommended.
