This tour was a full day and an amazing way to see Florence! The tour operator met us precisely at 8:20, the time that was stated to give us our tour information. I would do one of these day tours again.
Must see city. Need to spend longer there. Train and booking very good service.
This is a great tour if you just want to get from Venice to Florence without the fuss of an organized tour.
The travel agent met us promptly at the train station with our tickets. The train, Trenitalia, was so clean and comfortable with great WiFi. It has European electrical outlets if you want to bring your adapter to charge your phone.
The only confusing part was finding the Hop On Hop Off bus meeting area. The name of the store where the stop is, had changed it's name, so we were looking for a different store. Otherwise, the rest of the trip was perfect.
We would highly recommend this tour.
we loved our trip so much we plan to go back for a longer visit next time,
lovely people , great hotel and breathtaking views everywhere.
Very easy to get around albeit a bit tiring, we waled our socks off but thoroughly enjoyed it, the guided tour of St Mark's Square is a must.
An excellent way to see Florence if staying in Venice traveling by the .italo 300kmh train in just over 2 hours you get there at around 11.00am with the whole day to enjoy the sights in Florence. 'Hop on Hop off' bus pass included in the tour price we found this an excellent way to get around the city. Plenty of good cafe's to eat in especially around the Duomo, a really enjoyable day we would thoroughly recommend.
Everything was well organized. Agency person I met was very friendly and helpful. Great day trip.
The agent met us on time with the tickets. The train was excellent, very comfortable and clean and on time. It gave us a full day in Florence to see the places we wanted to. The open top tour bus was good unfortunately we didn't use it that much as we walked between galleries. Would certainly recommend doing the trip if you want to see Florence without actually staying there.
THE GIRL MET US ON TIME TO GIVE US OUR VOUCHERS AND VOUCHER FOR THE HOP ON AND BUS. THE TRAIN RIDE WAS PERFECT AND RETURN TRIP WAS FINE.
Amazing trip in amazing city. KInd people, good shoping, food was magnific!
We had the best day. Your representatives met at at each station with tickets, times of arrival, and departures. We did the Hop on Hop off bus, which is such a great way of seeing the sights. We spent many hours in Florence and arrived back in Venice at 11 pm. Thank you.
Excellent trip. We were 4 people and we gave 440, instead if we would have done the same on our own it would cost 582 euro! Well organized and lovely way to look around Florence. Highly recommended.
The train was very nice but was disappointed that our First Class was not much better than regular fair. The only difference was we got a small amount of snacks and a table.
But ride was great and looking at countryside was beautiful.

Though again we had a bad beginning as our tour guide could not meet us at Venice rail as she was delayed.
They instructed us that somebody will meet us at Florence station and they were there with our Hop On Hop Off bus tickets....we had a great time the whole day in Florence... Truly a lovely city. So once again Viator came through and we had a great time...we were 8 members of Family in this Tour and we had a great time. Thanks Viator!!!!
Great way to get a taste of Florence . The train was fast and very comfortable and the Bus Tour starts just across the road from the station. Make sure you leave plenty of time in Venice to get to the train station though.
The train was very clean and friendly to use, with great views of the country side. It was very easy to navigate and find our way around Florence once we got there. The instructions were easy to understand with great description. Florence is amazing and beautiful! Completely recommend taking the time and doing this day trip.
This is a very good idea. Basically you get 8 hours on your own to discover florence and if you dont fancy going into details, just use the 3 hop on off bus routes and enjoy the panormic views. However uffizi visit is higly recommended..
Great trip on the fast train to Florence from Venice we were travelling over 300 km/h is in some section of the tunnels and whizzed by. Upon reaching Florence we hopped on the hop on hop off bus and had a great trip around the city later travelling by foot covering some of the areas that we wanted to see most. A great day out.
