Our tour was truly wonderful - our Tour Guide a young woman ... can't recall her name now was really excellent, answered all of our questions and made our entry to the sites visited very smooth - she even gave me a sweet bracelet from one of the local artisans. It was a great intro to Istanbul since we were only there for a short period of time - highly recommend this.
Marina and Driver Salvatore were excellent ....dont expect to see everything ...Florence definitely needs couple of days!
Overall good tour and very comfortable bus
Really enjoyed the tour and food. Wish there had been time to visit the Uffizi as well. Perhaps, if we had taken a fast train....
This tour was fantastic saw a lot and learnt a lot about Florence Thankyou
Fantastic trip to Florence. The lunch was great. If you are looking to purchase a
Eat her jacket the trip to the leather place is a good place to start. No hard sell and we found some things with great discount. The leather is beautifully soft and well made. Yes it would have been great for some more free time but then you may as well have stayed for a few nights in Florence instead of just doing a day tour.
Except for the heat, which they could not control, it was great! No lines, great lunch, nice transportation and guides
Loved it! There was a fair amount of driving but it was worth it. Lovely group and guide.
Loved Florence, our trip was good except our stop on the way for refreshments was so crowded no time for coffee just a quick snack. Tour in Florence was great, would have liked to have visited the bridges we caught a cab very hurried to see bridges and lookout all in half an hour preferred to have done that instead of the Gold and Leather shop. Our guide was very good. Overall very good.
The day trip tour to Florence was the highlight of our week long stay in Rome. The tour guide spoke multiple languages very impressively and demonstrated excellent knowledge of items that were relevant to observe. The organization was good - with virtually everything on the schedule coming in near the appointed time. The lunch meal included in the price was surprisingly nice, and it provided for a great atmosphere to stop and visit with our fellow tour goers.
This trip was well worth it. We had 2 separate guides, one for Florence and one primarily for the bus. We visited all the highlights and our local guide gave an excellent overview of the statue of David. Lunch was a bit late, but the food was delicious and very filling after a long day of walking. Towards the afternoon, we had about 1.5 hours to roam Florence on our own and explore the gold and leather shop.
It's an amazing city which you definitely need more days to know, but if you don't have much time this is the perfect tour!
Knowledgeable and friendly tour guides. Very good and prompt service. They pick you up from your hotel! Beautiful views, wonderful city. They feed you too! There is too much to see in one day but it's a nice day trip.
Florence was great, local guide was very knowledgeable, well worth it. Lunch was just ok, some chicken and pasta and fruit for desert.
Bad choose of lunch restaurant( far away and bad food)
Bad tour guide
No time for shopping
End of trip the Bus stop far away
Local tour from Flonase is very good tour guide with knowledge information
A great tour of Florence. All the highlights, including a good look at David. The only negative is that it's a long drive there and back -- 6 of the 12-to-13 hours are on the road. You start pretty early in the morning, so it's a long, long day.
Loved Florence! Go to the golden bridge if you can, also inside the Basilica of Santa Croce for the entombed resting places of Galileo and Michaelangelo. I would recommend this tour in November through February when it is not tourist season. The museums in Florence are amazing.
We were very satisfied with our tour. We were really impressed at how a van would pick us up at our hotel in the morning and the bus would drop us off near our hotel at night. In our country the bus driver and tour guide stands at the doors as the people are embarking to make sure everyone gets off okay. However, that was not the case in Italy. Other than that the bus drive and tour guides were great. We also were pleased with the restaurant. We received plenty to eat and it was very tasty.
