    We really enjoyed this tour and highly recommend doing this! We learned so much about the Arno and Ponte Vecchio. Our guide was so kind and recommended a great gelato place and other places to go.

    Very nice tour to learn some of the history of Florence. It was a unique experience. My family enjoyed the small boat ride away from the business of the city

    We had booked the 6pm tour which we would highly recommend. We arrived a little early and were met by some nice people who allowed us to wait in a very comfortable lounge area with coffee machine. When our tour guide arrived he was very helpful. We were supposed to have four people on our cruise although I understand that there can be up to twenty people. As it turned out we were the only ones. We had an amazing time, our guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. The cruise was very informative and relaxing. We had a glass of wine and took a slow cruise down the river and back. We had a great time and would highly recommend this to everyone.

    Amazing experience! Our guide, Francesca, was extremely knowledgeable of the city. This tour was a great way to relax, kick off the day, and learn a few new tidbits about the city!

    We had a good time despite the weather being a little dreary. I thought this was a private tour when I booked but it was still nice. We got lost and they still waited for us to depart, which was nice. It would have been nice to have the person driving the boat in some of our photos, but they were crouched down in the background instead. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Florence and hospitable.

    A calm scenic informative tour of the bridges and buildings of the Arno away from the crowds enjoying a glass of wine, a sunset and the breeze .

    This was a nice trip on the Arno, and our guide Sarah was knowledgeable. It was fun to glide under the Ponte Vecchio and learn about its rich history. It’s a little pricey.

    This was a fun, low-key, educational and relaxing start to our trip. The guide was charming. The whole experience was wonderful. I highly recommend this tour.
