    Florence is beautifuland filled with art and history. The tour pointed our the hot spots. The highlights of the museum was great. We didn't get to spend much time in any one place. We just tried time see as much as possible in the short amount of time we had. We loan to return and stay a few days.

    We had a wonderful day visiting. Our tour guide could have been a bit more professional, it's okay to be relaxed with clients, however I felt she was on a quest for personal time while not with us. Would have been nice to have her give us more ins and outs of the region we were in.

    Museum waste of time, definitely not worth the 24 euros. Having 2 languages to translate slowed down the tour. Should have taken us to see David and not the museum. Our main tour guide was great and the lunch was good. The leather factory was way too e expensive.

    Pickup was on time. The high-speed train was an hour late both coming and going. Florence was beautiful! The lunch was just horrible! Poor service and the food was poor quality and the brisket looked like dog food and tasted the same. The tour guide was unorganized and if it was not for a passenger they would have left us in the bathroom. We payed extra to see David. It was worth it! It is better to skip the lunch and pay your own lunch.

    Relaxing and much enjoyed trip. A lovely and easy way to spend the day just getting a sample of Florence which is so beautiful.

    Florence really deserves more than one day. Our tour guides were excellent with a lot of side information. We had a delicious lunch and plenty of free time. It's just so much to see.

    The trip from Rome to Florence was great, we were handled well by our tour guide then handed off nicely to our guide while in Florence. It was informative and fun! Enjoyed lunch and the free time at the end of the day to do a little shopping.

    Worst tour experience ever encountered. We wanted to book the tour with hotel pick-up but there was no option to select for hotel pick-up in the Viator website. When we contacted the company via email to arrange pick-up, they refused and suggested we cancel the booking. WE SHOULD HAVE and this turned out to be a bad mistake.

    The tour guide assigned to lead the group from Rome to Florence was totally inexperienced. Did not give proper instructions. Just walked by herself ahead of the group with no flag or signs for us to follow. In the crowded train stations and in Florence, people in the back could not see her, and have no clue where she was going. She don't even turn around to check if her group is following behind her or if anyone is lagging behind.

    Lunch was more than an hour late because of extremely POOR booking arrangement. She blamed it on hotel when she could have better coordinated.


    We went with another tour agency on a Vatican City tour the next day, and it was the best experience of our trip.

    If you can only do one day trip in Italy, make it this one! Francesca, our guide, was fantastic to our whole family. Her knowledge and kind demeanor was so welcome. The high speed train from Rome is definitely the way to go. Great way to see the countryside, and got us to Florence so much quicker so we could enjoy our day there. The Uffizi was specatcular and we really enjoyed the trip to the leather shop and an explanation of how they make their leather goods. Lunch was delicious and we had adequate time to do just about everything on our short list. We could honestly spend a lifetime in Florence...but if you only have a day book this trip.

    lets start with the good stuff: florence is imazing. beutiful. the hight train ride was nice too. the local guide giovanni was great , really nice and knew a lot. the guide mauro was nice , but.the feeling was that if someone left behind is his problam they just set a meeting point to come to at the end of the tour/ as someone who travel alone, it felt to me a little un safe.
    they didnt gave enough time to sit and drink coffe althow we go out from rome really early and we didnt had time or place to drink coffee befor.
    they took us for a walking tour for a whuke and then to the uffizzi. after they took us to a leather and gold shop, complete waist of time. instead they should have invest a little bit more money, and take us with a minibus to piazzela michaeleangelo that everybody sais is tt has the most beutiful view on florence.
    the guides also recomend for this place to go on the free time, but i didnt found someone to go with so i missed it.
    if they just invest a little more money and took us there by a bus, it was much better then spend the time in a leather shop so we spend more money.
    after it we went to really really bad restaurant. the menu was fix menu without able to choose and the food was so awful that i ate one bite and left the rest. and the service was really bad too. i asked for an empty plate twice and didnt got it at all.
    the idea of going out for florence to one day tour is good, but to my opinion not this tour. i could come with hidht train alone' make some round by walking' go to the uffizzi alone and sit at a good restaurant, and it was completly the same, with less then a half price.
    so do it alone or choose an other tour for the same place.
