Really the best way to see Florence in a short time. My 7 yo son did fine despite the crowded streets and hot weather. As promised- helmets, water bottle, ear phones provided. Gelato was good too. David tour was less fun but still necessary to see. Really hot waiting in line to get inside
Great way to see the city! Our guide was simply wonderful. Although this tour does not require a great deal of athletic ability I don't recommend it for children, particularly during the height of tourist season. It does require an amount of self-awareness and the ability to steer albeit slowly around narrow streets and through squares filled with oblivious tourists. My teenager loved this tour says it was the highlight of her trip and so did I.
Awesome stories, very nice and easy ride through the city. Must do it Florence.
City bike tour was a perfect way to see the city in a short amount of time. Vanessa was my guide and she was amazing!! Loves her city and loves telling people about it. She is a wonderful story teller! Very animated. She made the tour perfect! The gelato stop helped too!
Love this tour - fun and informative! Will definitely book another tour with Viator.
This tour was WELL WORTH THE MONEY! Our family of 4 - including two teenagers - LOVED this tour. Our guide was knowledgable, fun and peppy, showing us all of the major piazzas of Florence in style. We saw a lot more by bike than we would have by foot. But you might not want to go on this tour if you don't feel confident biking along a crowded street. You don't have to be an expert, but need to be a steady, stable rider to follow the tour.
The tour was split into two small tours. Both were very informative and enjoyable. We found all the information interesting and relavent. Wishing we did more bike tours at other cities now!
This tour was fabulous. Our tour guide was informative and we learnt heaps about the city - the Medici family, their rivals, the artists and the silk merchants. Loved it and would highly recommend it
Sarah was simply amazing. The tour was well-paced and fun. So wonderful to learn some Florentine history from someone so knowledgeable and who knows how to present it in such an interesting manner.
We would highly recommend this tour.
Thank you Sarah

The bike tour was a really fun way for our kids (ages 10, 12, 15, and 16) to get an overview of the city. Our guide, Katarina, was excellent and great with the kids. And the added gelato was a nice touch. Definitely recommend.
Eleonora, our first guide for the city bike ride, was amazing! Pretty knowledgeable and she answered every question. Our second guide for the Academy Museum was Barbara and she was also great! Overall fun and great experience
The tour was great and very fun and informative. The bikes were awesome!
Wonderful tour! Grea bike ride, covered a lot of areas of Florence and skipping the line for david was excellent.
Awesome tour! Having never done a bike tour before, it was great to see how much more ground you can cover than in a walking tour. You really get to see so many of the big-name sites in a short period of time. It's perfect for someone who's visiting Florence for the first time and wants to get a good overview of the main sights. And, for someone like me who loves being on a bike, it's a rad feeling cruising through the narrow streets of Florence with all its traffic and pedestrians.
Enjoyed the tour of the Accademia and the David was impressive. Loved the bike tour... Great way to get to know the city. Very fun time.
We were very happy that we chose this tour of Accademia Gallery. Our guide Barbara was excellent. The insight she offered into the history and details of the various pieces made the visit much better. We would not have had the same experience if we had walked through on our own.
An added benefit was we did not have to wait in a long line to get in!
The city bike tour portion was rained out so we did not get to do that part.
Great experience! A different way to visit a city by bike, loads of fun! Friendly and knowledgeable guides.
Great fun and awesome way to see many sites in Florence. Recommedation - do not take the bike tour on Thursdays and Saturdays when the cruise ships are in port. The guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly throughout the entire tour especally during the Accademia Gallery Tour. We would highly recommend this tour!
It was great to skip the long line for the Accademia, but we waited for over a half hour ourselves, so I can't imagine what the length of wait was like for those without these privileges. Our tour guide was informative...can't recall her name. She was an art history student and passionate and well versed in the artforms she was showing us. Given the length of time in line, I had to cut my visit at the Accademia short to make it to the bike portion of the tour only to find that that tour guide did not show for the tour. Florencetown offered a refund or the option to take another tour, which is what I chose. They were easy to work with, but it would have benefitted me to know I didn't have to leave the Accademia early just to find out the second tour was cancelled. Florencetown should call the tour guides to advise of follow-on tour guide absence in the future.

Riding bicycles in Florence can be tricky. We weren't quite prepared for narrow streets with cars and people. But it went well and covered a lot of sites. Our guide was informative. A little more time between the bike tour and the Accademia tour for some lunch would have been nice. We did this on our first day and it helped us get a good idea of the city and where things were.
Was lovely... Very explanatory guide. Worth taking.kids enjoyed it too.
