We were taken all over the city, into the tuscan hills and back again all in the space of an afternoon. It was enjoyable to be able to see all of those famous sights in such a short time, perfect for the very quick trip I was taking. It was also perfect for when we wanted to go exploring, since we had transportation for the rest of the day.

Saw a Florence that I never would have known existed...a lovely city!

The only disappointment was that our original tickets were for the day when a student climate protest paralyzed Florence. We were not able to get to the bus and when we finally had time to use the tickets, they had expired. Had to purchase new tickets. We enjoyed the ride but the money that we lost because of tickets that we could not use due to local civil unrest has left a bad taste.

The tours were interesting

The tours are interesting but the buses do not follow the schedule and our plans were disturbed because of this. They know months ahead there is a marathon or a rally for some cayse so they can adapt the schedule on the site so that people would know when they buy the 48 or 72 hours tours
