We saw Florence from the Arno with some explanations of the city, river and bridges. A very nice way to quietly see some of the sights.
Florence from a small open boat is beautiful and the guide was really knowledgeable, completely recommend.
This was a great trip, the tour guide was very informative. I would recommend this trip you get some great views in the hours trip
Really enjoyed our river cruise our guide was very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Florence and made the trip very interesting. We enjoyed the wine as we cruised down the Arno, we would recommend this trip to others.
Brilliant excursion really good guides, the boat trip was times perfectly for a beautiful sunset. A really rewarding experience at the end of a brilliant day.
We landed in Florence, dropped off our bags and did this the first thing. It was relaxing, informative and a great way to see this beautiful city. Definitely a great way to enter beautiful Florence. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared interesting information with us not only on the boat but on our walk down to the Arno. We sailed towards the Ponte Vecchio, under it and back, the lighting was perfect, sun was about to set...Totally beautiful for photographs. We were offered wine to top off this perfect moment. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Great guide, saw some wonderful sites and the wine was delicious. Worth it all around.
Francesca was a great guide. Very personable, and informative and funny. She gave great insight. This was a nice tour to do as it was an hour long and you got to sit in a boat and drift down the Arno river sipping your aperativo to get a different perspective of the Ponte Vecchio and Oltrarno disctrict. Yo actually got to drift under the Ponte Vecchio and saw its architectural details. Very cool!! I took this tour in June, so I recommend the later times offered to catch the sunset.
Caterina was amazing! The view from the river was amazing! The wine was amazing! Lots of fun! Definitely worth it! Florence stole a part of my heart!
An awesome trip very relaxing! Our guide Mishko I am not sure if that is the correct spelling was very knowledgeable and started with a 20 minute walk to the boat. We had prosecco as we went slowly down the river Arno in the Barchetto at 6pm. A great way to see, and photograph. the city from a different perspective.
Wonderful boat tour! Totally recommend it if you want to see Florence from a different perspective and I'd suggest to do in the night when you can admire Ponte Vecchio and all other sites illuminated. Nice glass of prosecco on the way back too!
Sibille was our tour and was a delight. She was extremely patient and informative. I would recommend anyone do this tour!
A great introduction to Florence! Met Elisa, our guide, outside the Florencetown tour company office which was easy enough to find. There were only 8 of us and we left for the Arno just a minute or two late. We did have to walk through Florence fairly fast. Once we got to the Barchetto, it was smooth sailing! Elisa was very friendly and knowledgeable. Since our cruise was at 7pm, it was almost sunset so it was quite scenic and the 45 minute ride was just super relaxing and lovely. The small glass of prosecco was a nice touch.
This was very enjoyable and a nice vantage point to see things from different perspective. Guide was great.
I absolutely loved this tour!! I had Prosecco and took this in the evening which was wonderful! The man operating the Barchetto was amazing as he offered more information and gave us some tips for local things near our hotel. Please use him more often!
This was so nice and fun thanks to our guide. Had champagne and learned things as we went down the river. So relaxing and interesting, loved it!!!!
Would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Barbara, was informative and entertaining. There were so many people we needed to tie 2 boats together, but that did not detract from the enjoyment. Sunset and a glass of Prosecco was a lovely end to a day on Florence.

This is one of the most memorable cruises, I've heard so many interesting things about Florence in one hour, as I did not hear the previous full day excursions
Thank you so much
One of my favorite memories of Florence! It was absolutely delightful to slip gently down the Arno River early in the evening, being poled along by our boatman in traditional fashion. We even cooled our feet in the water as our personable guide explained the sights we viewed as we glided under the Ponte Vecchio and other bridges on a lovely evening. Out guide popped the cork of our bottle of Prosecco as we approached a bridge, delighting a group of teenagers on the bridge who caught our cork and cheered. What fun! I'd definitely take this short cruise again if I return to Florence.
