5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2016

The city sightseeing hop-on hop-off tour was excellent. The stops are convenient and the bus was clean and audio working well. English-speaking attendants and polite and courteous. No complaints! Priced fairly and an excellent way to get about the city of Florence. A three day ticket isn't much more than a one or two day ticket and it is well worth it as a means of transportation around the city.

It was not apparent on booking that I needed a printed voucher for this service as many other Viator tours accept eVoucher: however the Hop on-Hop off guide was very helpful and gave me a ticket with a promise from me to email the sightseeing tour company. Loved the 2 hour tour to Fiesole.

The company provides two different and interesting routes and the service was excellent. We were delayed into Florence due to aircraft delays and the company staff still allowed us to use our voucher the next day. They also provided excellent directions when we asked questions of them.
