Our guide was very knowledgeable and interesting! It was very relaxing and entertaining!!!
Mario gave us a relaxed and informative amble down to the river.He took the time and trouble to remember all our names and answer questions.The boat men were equally as nice and we had a lovely relaxing cruise and saw things from a different perspective.
This was a wonderful walking tour and a beautiful cruise down the river. Our guide was excellent! He seemed genuinely passionate about Florence, he answered all our questions, conversed with us and even gave us recommendations on other sights to see and where to eat. I would highly recommend this activity. We went on our first evening in Florence and it was wonderful!
Such a great way to start your evening in Florence! The light on the River Arno at the time the tour takes place is beautiful, really soft, meaning we were able to take some great pictures of the Ponte Vecchio as we sailed. Our guide, Omar was really friendly and had lots of interesting tales to tell about the city! Finishing with a glass of Prosecco, this boat ride was a lovely early-evening experience.

Doing what: Florence River Cruise on a Traditional Barchetto
Lovely late-afternoon tour in the city. It was great to have a guide, Omar who knew so much about Florence. The river cruise itself was great, the water in the river cools the air down a little bit (which is great – we visited during a heat wave!) to a far more comfortable temperature in which we could sit back, relax and take in the sights. Our pictures of the Ponte Vecchio from the river are “postcard perfect”. Many thanks to Omar for an unforgettable experience
A wonderful ride on the River Arno. The walk from the starting point to the boat provided some interesting stories and information about Firenze. Although the peaceful ride down the river on a lovely evening was very enjoyable we would have liked some historical information during the ride on the river and the buildings along it.
Pleasant and quite different. A Barchetto is similar to a rowing boat but is powered by a single man with a pole - somewhat like a punt. A lovely way to spend a couple of hours on the River Arno.
Excellent . The tour guide was outstanding and added to the great sights of Venice
Terrible!!! Don't waste your time and money.
This was a very mediocre experience. Would not do it again. We walked from the middle of town to a small boat. Got a very small amount of champagne in a plastic cup. Very disappointing.
