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
What fun! A lovely quiet and different way of seeing Florence.
Very interesting trip with a knowledgeable tour guide. Would have been nice to have the prosecco as soon as we got on the boat after that walk in the later afternoon heat.
Absolutely fabulous tour, a hidden gem of Florence! Our guide, Mario, spoke somewhat limited English, but was nevertheless an enthusiastic, friendly and engaging tour guide. Anyway, by this point of the holiday, we just wanted to relax so were glad of the peace and quiet offered by the tour! A really unique way to see Florence, and so romantic. I would definitely recommend it! I will definitely be using Viator again for future tours!
This was a perfect way to start our visit in Florence. Our guide was wonderful and knowledgeable.
What can be better than a quiet boat ride on the Arno embraced in the tranquility of the Florence shoreline in the evening with a glass of Prosecco... with you wife of course?
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.
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
