Awesome, a don't miss and don't do it by yourself. Have the guided tour
Although we took the independent tour and were on our own after our arrival in Florence, the tour guides, Miriam and Claudia, were friendly, helpful, and entertaining. They answered any questions that we had and provided suggestions on what to see and how to get around. The train was clean and comfortable. Overall, a great day trip and a wonderful experience!
the tri;p was wonderful. The guide was considerate and knowledgeable and easy to understand. Our trip was the high speed train from Rome to Florence and it was also great to tour Uffizi. The Uffizi guide was also excellent. Thank you for a wonderful time and yes you can use my name to let others know about your service. We are going to California in the spring and will contact you when plans are arranged. Than ks again. rate is a 5

An amazing tour! Our tour guide to the museum, Marco, had a passion for the art and it's history that was incredible! Only downside to the tour was the transportation back to the hotel afterward. After the driver made two of the four stops, he went well out of his way to pick up some one else, possibly another employee (?) before making the last two stops. What should have taken no more than an hour to get back to the hotel took two hours. A sour ending to an incredible day in Florence.
The staff were so helpful and kept us informed every step of the way. Highly recommend.
Amazing! From high speed train travel to Uffizzi gallery. The tour guides were top shelf. Excellent all round.
It was a great one-day tour. Mirjam, the coordinator who took us from Rome to Florence and back, was a marvel of organization and experience. She deserves every ounce of your confidence. Marco, our tour guide in Florence, knew every detail of the area and all its history. He took us around town briefly pointing out significant details here and there. His tour of the Uffizi gallery was a maserpiece of pacing, hitting all the right highlights to provide exposure to the most representative and important art. We felt enlightened while having great fun, because all the details were taken care of. And we were not exhausted at the end of the long day. I think this is because the pacing was so masterful. We saw so much without feeling rushed to pushed to see it all. The train is the way to go, and this tour does it right.
It was an amazing trip! I took this independent tour because I wasn't sure about navigating myself through the train system solo so this was ideal!
Florence was wonderful, guide great but the seats on the train were the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on and that includes trains, boats and planes anywhere in the world. However travelling between Florence and Rome in such a short time was so worth it.
This was a great trip. We were on time and the train was clean and fast! The tour in Florence was very informative and the guide was very knowledgeable. The Ufizzi museum was amazing! The local guide was full of information and very kind.
Great and extremely well organized tour ! . The service provides hotel pick up to a central coach pick up where you meet your guides who are with you the whole time. Francesca should be highly commended she is so organized and through and makes sure everyone is accounted for at all times, The trains are beautiful and stylish , Florence was so pretty and such a nice place to visit , I would highly recommend this tour .
We love love loved Florence! Granted, we didn't go into the Duomo because of the line, but the city is amazing nevertheless. I'd recommend a visit to the Pitti Palace and the Boboli Gardens inside. Wear comfortable shoes!
This was an exceptional way to travel via the Ferrari high speed train. Our two tour guides from the tour company were terrific and very helpful as well as friendly. This is the way to travel to Florence from Rome.
It's amazing tour and our tour leader from carrani tours, Miriam and Francesca were very helpful. They pointed out the restaurant for our lunch and it turned out awesome. And not to be left out, they also pointed few interesting places to go to.
We had a great time! Wonderful day to explore the city. The high speed train was a highlight in itself!
The tour guide was helpful and friendly. They accommodated us and were great even though we booked very last minute. Trains are nice, new and comfortable. A great tour that made it easy to get out of Rome and see a bit of Italy.
Florence was just the most beautiful city. Again our tour guide was fantastic. We would most certianly recommend you to everyone.

On that day , we move from Rome to Florence, group of 7.We need to wake up early the catch the coach but the coach is big and comfort so we can have a good rest . When we request that may be they can drop us to the place that near our hotel,they are so kind( guide and the driver) and drive us to the nearest drop place.Thank you so much .
Our guide was just amazing, the information and history that she was able to tell us was so interesting and her knowledge was endless. We were impressed and will remember that trip for a long time. WELL DONE.
I had a great time! There are some reviews saying that there have been problems for those that used the Rome to Florence bus as a shuttle. We used it for this purpose, just a shuttle to Florence, and it was awesome! We were picked up at a nearby hotel, then boarded the bus and our tour guide talked occasionally along the way about the sights we saw and the history of the area. We stopped halfway to use to restroom and do some shopping, the store let you taste all the different wines, olive oils, spreads, etc, and it was a nice little stop. Once we got there we were dropped off at Academia, just like the information said we would be, and we made our way to our hotel on our own. It was just what we wanted!
very enjoyable and hostess provided all the history and culture of towns and roads we passed through Also appreciate being picked up from my hotel. i recommend people to use viator services
