A delightful experience. Our guide Caterina was lovely and very funny. The trip was relaxed and informative. Cruising along the Arno with a glass of Prosecco is just the best way to see the Ponte Vecchio...away from the crowds and the bustle of the tourists. Just lovely! So glad we did it. And Caterina's fun approach added just the right note. Do it!
This is the second time I have been on this amazing boat ride and I would definitely go again!! it's a one-of-a-kind experience and gives a completely different appreciation of Florence when seen from the river. Our guide Jessica was very friendly accommodating and shared a lot of great information
Small tour but very informative - super guide and very relaxed. Suggest a cardigan from now till April!! Don't panic even if the small boat rocks! Very good evening out and will set you up for a leisurely stroll and a nice meal out. Bravo
What a fun and different way to see Florence. The lights all sparkle and the water is so pretty. And there's prosecco! Enjoyed it a lot.
It was a highlight !! Our tour guide was wonderful .She was warm friendly and had passion . It was a beautiful night .we would recommend this tour . Thanks Rona Garofano
If you're not going to do a lengthy city walking tour of Florence, then take this tour instead. Wooden boats are about 20 feet long and resemble gondolas. This is a fabulous way to learn about the history of Florence, while gliding along the Arno. Our tour left at 6:30 pm, and was ending just as another beautiful sunset was beginning in the western Tuscan sky!
This tour was a lot of fun and very interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable about Florence and gave us some great information. The only issue we had was that there were to many people on the tour and the boat was very full.
The trip was absolutely lovely! Julia was a great guide with a vast knowledge of the area as well as some humorous asides. It was a fitting end to a wonderful day.
I was a bit worried about this trip after reading some of the reviews but my sister and I had a wonderful time. Our guide was lovely, the sunset was beautiful and the Prosecco wasn't bad either. There was only 4 of us on the evening we went. It was a lovely way to see Florence from a different view point, especially sailing under the Ponte Vecchio Bridge as the sun is setting. I would recommend this trip and I would go again.
This tour offers a very different perspective of Florence. Commentary was very good and the opportunity for photos from the river in the evening was a pleasant change from the hustle and bustle of the city.
What a lovely way to spend the evening giving a great perspective of Firenze! Our tour guide was really lovely and very informative. We even got to enjoy a glass of Prosecco on the journey!
My wife, her mother and I thought that this was the most enjoyable thing that we did while we were in Florence. Our tour guide Giulia Bozzi was extremely informative and a great guide. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence, Italy!
A lovely relaxing way to learn about some of the history of Florence (bubbles was a bonus!). Cheerful, friendly and informative tour guide.
This was alot of fun. Our tour guide, Katarina, was very welcoming and fun to be around. The evening was quite beautiful and the boat ride was very relaxing and informative (and the Proseco - bubbly and cold). A nice way to view both sides of the Arno river and learn a bit of Florentine history. I recommend this tour and Katarina as a guide.
This was one of my favorite parts of the entire trip! Sara was an excellent tour guide with such a great depth of engaging knowledge about the city. The time on the river was relaxing and it was a great way to get to know the city better.
Hidden gem! Beautiful, beautiful views of Florence at sunset, we were the only ones on the river and only had two other people with us, very intimate, our guide was great and we go to enjoy some prosecco! Highly recommend!!
Outstanding! It was so nice to see the city from the river and hear about its history on the walking tour.
It was a lovely evening the light over the river fantastic. The tour guide was informative and fun, with the boat persons friendly and they enjoyed telling people information as you go. I recommend you sat nav where to meet as some people had difficulties finding the office where you meet. GREAT TRIP
Excellent tour. Very knowledgable guide (Sarah). Wonderful evening views of Florence from the river.
Beyond excellent!! You first do a short walking tour around the city center of Venice and then head to the Arno River where you will see the beauty and hear of the incredible history of Florence from a very unique boat. As you slowly cruise down the Arno River, your guide will explain the most interesting stories about the famous Medici Family and their great influence on Florence's history. Of course, you also get to enjoy wine as your tour guide comes equipped to serve you as you glide along. We had the most adorable young tour guide, I think her name was Fanessa... Just an incredible story teller and made for a wonderful experience. Highly recommend this tour!!!
Tour guide excellent, beautiful trip along part of the river, weather fab which just made it even better
