Beautiful Florence....great tour

I took this relatively expensive tour under Giulia's expert guidance last week and was certainly impressed! She is a brilliant guide and knows the Medicis as well as her art inside out and she made the Uffizi Gallery so much fun! The walk through Vasari corridor was impressive and information packed and to know the interesting historical anecdotes was certainly enriching. Giulia knows so much and adds so much humor and excitement to the walk that you end up feeling it is indeed value for money. The walk is from Uffizi to Palazzo Pitti through the Vasari Corridor and all you Dan Brown lovers will love it!

Excellent tour of Uffizi and Vasari Corridor with Vanessa”

This may seem to be an expensive tour but it was worth every euro. Vanessa took us through the Uffizi, telling us the history of the building itself, as well as describing the background and history of the works in the Uffizi, starting in the Middle Ages and working through the Renaissance itself. Her enthusiasm, knowledge and humour brought the whole experience to life and made all of the detail memorable. The grand finale was the Vasari Corridor, a magical experience. The surprise views, the history and the self portraits were extraordinary. The tour ended at the Boboli Gardens. Camera essential, though no flash. Thank you Vanessa for an unforgettable experience!

Great tours of Uffizi and Tuscan countryside

We booked two tours. The first was a "VIP" tour of the Uffizi gallery and the Vasari corridor. Our guide, Giulia B., was great at explaining the various works throughout the tour and answering questions. I wish we could have even had a little more time to just wander and browse each room, but overall a very good tour. We also did a Tuscan bike. Our guide was very knowledgable, speaking about the nature sightings around us and, of course, wine. We also got to tour the Ruffini winery, and at the end, we had a lunch and wine tasting at a different winery. Overall, a good, professional tour outfit.

Excellent choice to see the highlights of Florence in a day

We booked the Dan Brown Inferno tour in the morning and the Vasari Corridor and Uffizi tour in the same afternoon..... Vanessa our tour guide for both was just fascinating and very engaging with the whole group. We took our two 12 year old daughters and they were not looking forward to the day (being more interested in fashion than art) but they were captivated by her the entire day and made our enjoyment complete. Please thank her again directly And look forward to another tour next time we visit.
