“Worth doing if you are an art fan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

I went back to Florence specifically to see the Vasarian Corridor and have not repented one bit. Our private guide , Guilia, was wonderful and quite knowlegeable. If you are doing the Vasari + Uffizi Gallery, do not expect it to not be crowded at the Uffizi since art lovers pop out from everywhere, but the Corridor is not (tours are private and acess restricted) so you will have plenty of time to wonder around and almost feel you are being shown the Corridor by Cosimo himself.
Guilia works with Florencetown. You will love her tour.

“Uffizi Gallery and Vasari Corridor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We took this tour on May 14, 2014. The tour guide Eleanora was very knowledgeable and friendly. She explained how the different styles of painting evolved and the various artists which made the tour that much more interesting. The breakfast was not that great a few pastries and drinks (fortunately we had eaten at the hotel). Overall an interesting morning hosted by a very nice young woman. Doug and Jan Kline

“Expensive history lesson”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

You will not go to Florence and not see these beautiful magnificent buildings, beautiful people and streets, breath-taking beauty and culture. But here you will pay, buy a history book instead and look at the jewellery, paintings are very hard to transport home.

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Starting at the Uffizi and ending in the Bobboli gardens this was well worth the ticket price (not cheap!) We don't usually do guided tours but glad we did this one - you cannot do it any other way.The guide was knowledgeable and interesting to listen to and the collection of self portraits was made even more enjoyable by our guide. Great views from the corridor, walking in Medici's footsteps was a real privilege.

“informative private tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

If you do your research you'll realise there are several companies offering tours of the corridor. I chose the Exclusive Connection Uffizi Gallery and the Vasari Corridor tour which starts at 9:50am and costs 79 euros. Andrea our knowledgeable guide spoke perfect English and covered both the Medici history and the history of the art. I think to appreciate and understand Florence's place in art history you need some grounding in the basics. This tour was very useful to fill in my missing gaps particularly as I had a very limited knowledge of the House of Medici before the tour.

Group size was about 7 for Uffizi and enlarged to around 15 for the corridor.

I think when taking price into account perhaps this should be a 4 rather than a 5 but I enjoyed it a lot so it gets full marks.
