Worth it. Lines were fine and buses came often enough

This was the absolute best way to see the highlights of the city in a short period of time. We purchased the multi-day ticket which allowed us to travel on all 4 routes. Buses were clean, staff was knowledgeable and friendly and they were always on-time. Loved seeing the city from this vantage point. And, even enjoyed the narration!

We took this tour on our day of arrival into Florence in the mid afternoon. Since we were only in Florence for that day it was a great way to relax and see the sites.

Everything went to plan. A great way to see Florence, especially travelling out to Fisole. Commentary was good and buses ran to schedule.

Since this was my first trip to Florence, I appreciated the convenience of the bus at the rail station. It's a good idea to have two routes. The 'A' route was a very good introduction to the city and the buses were regular, so time was not lost on a day trip. I hope to return sometime and take the 'B' route. Thank you

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Very well done, you really get a greater view of Florence and surrounding areas by taking this Tour....Highly recommend...we have taken this type of tour in Rome, Victoria, British Columbia, and other great cities.

All day tour for one great price...Hop on Hop off will always be a part of our trips.

HI. I found the Hop on Hop Off bus great as it gave an insight into the layout of Florence. The views were magnificent and the staff most helpful. We travelled on both the Red and Blue Bus. I would recommend Viator to anyone. as everything went so smoothly when making the bookings in advance

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

did all 3 bus tours on the hop on hop off route. LOVED Fiesole - stunning views of the whole city ! Piazza Michaelangelo had stunning city views as well - should have bought the 48 hr tour, 24 hrs is not long enough lol definitely recommend getting this tour !!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

I've done a lot of HOHO bus tours in my life in different countries and I think I'd say this was one of the best as had three different 'loops' so you really got to see a whole lot of Florence even going up into the hills.
