This bus trip was well worth it. The bus ride through the Italian countryside was awesome. The tour guide on the bus was pleasant and informative. The tour guide in Florence was knowledgeable and got us into the Academia Museum quick and there were not a lot of people. The walking tour of Florence was informative and pleasant. The lunch we had was perfect and was at a small family owned restaurant. We do have one issue we stay at ABNB's when we travel, we like having bigger accommodations with full kitchens. We paid for being picked up and being dropped off. When we tried to arrange this, the tour operator said they only went to hotels. We were under the impression that they picked up and dropped off at larger hotels. We had to find our way to the tour operators office in the morning. Then they dropped us off at a Metro station, 4 stopped from Cipro. instead of somewhere close to the flat we were renting. Our flat was close to the Vatican by the Metro station Cipro. 3 Other guests were dropped off prior to us being dropped off at the Metro. What annoyed us was the 3 people being dropped off were at small hotels located in more remote locations then where we were staying. When it came to the drop off we felt like second class guests. We paid for a service we did not receive and were treated as if it was a burden to drop us off.
Excelent tour, very knowlege lady tourist guide Silvia!!, she was awesome.
Silva was such a great guide. Even though it was raining most part of our tour, we had a good time in Florence.
We enjoyed the Florence Day Trip, it's a fast day, use your museum time wisely, it's very short. Lunch was good, would do it again!
You cannot miss going to Florence! How can you miss seeing the David statue if you haven't seen it before? You can't. Just be aware. Florence is like a lot of other European cities like Rome and Prague. All the streets and sidewalks are cobblestone. You walk, and you walk, and you walk, and you walk, and you walk. Cobblestone is BRUTAL!!! Lunch was fine except for one thing I HATE! You could not talk to someone across from you because of the acoustics of the place. You practically had to shout. The noise level could only be describes as a din. And it hurt the ears.
Great guides. To and in Florence. We learnt a lot about Florence. Very passionate guides.
This day trip is a great way to see Florence if your schedule is tight. But unfortunately I did not get to go to the Uffizi Gallery because it was not part of the Day trip.
Marina was a fantastic guide through this fantastic city. You can tell when someone is passionate about something. It is clear that Marina is passionate about the clients, or as she called us new friends, on her tour. I am truly thankful we booked this day trip. I never thought a city could equal the beauty and charm of Rome. That all changed when I met Florence, and Marina
It was an excellent experience from every perspective. The guide was very nice, knowledgeable and helping. I wasn't expecting this trip to be so good but it was out of this world. Florence city local guide and the city itself were mind blowing. My best tour so far. Highly recommend. You'll get a very personalized and friendly treatment. Also the highway is beautiful on both sides, its a open area with vineyards and other fields, very different from busy Rome. Must try, won't regret.
Excellent trip, very well organized and you are going to enjoy it.
Great way to experience Florence in a day. Be warned, the leather shop they take you at the end of the tour is a tourist trap, even with the 20 discount if you pay cash. You are much better off buying in the small shops outside.

Nice way to get a feel for Florence, although you really need much more time than is provided on this tour fully explore the city.
Stefano was our wonderful tour guide for our Florence trip.. The guide who gave us a tour of the magnificent duomo Brunelleschis Dome, Giottos Bell Tower and Accademia Gallery was very thorough and quite interesting. Loved Michelangelos David sculpture, Madonna and Child by Botticelli and the sculptures by Michelangelo Quattro Prigioni depicting prisoners trying to escape from the marble from which they are carved. Both guides spoke English and spanish very well. We enjoyed touring the city and had a relaxing Florentine lunch. Lots of time for shopping 1 and half hour. The bus was very clean and the scenic drive was spectacular. This day tour is not to be missed!
So much to see! It was well organized and we got through all the crowds.
Wish I would have known about discounts for using cash at the leather and gold shop...would have brought more USD and Euros honored. Guides were impressive with knowledge and language ability. Food could have been better at lunch.
The local tour company selected by Viator is top notch the morning hotel pick-up was right on time, and the day trip to Florence from Rome was excellent, especially the tour guide in Florence was well prepared and knowledgeable, as matter of face, she was from Florence with ultimate knowledge about the history of Florence.
Trip to Florence was great...loved the tour guide....scenery...city
