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!

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?

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

The tour was excellent just wish it went longer! The views were spectacular
Mic our tour guide was very knowledgable about the history of Florence. The only down side was it was difficult to find the location of the tour office as there is a very small plaque near the door of the building which is not noticeable. So larger signage out the front would be beneficial to future travellers.

This was pretty good. We were the only ones who had booked it on our day so it was a little awkward with just us ( couple) and three italian men. The tour guide wasn't very insightful unless you really pushed him for questions but you can deny the serenity form the hustle and bustle of Florence on the river ( we were the only boat!) plus it was at sunset and the glass of Prosecco helped too!
