Beware
Sep 2019
One of the most inept companies I’ve ever had the misfortune of dealing with. As per the schedule and directions, we went to the assigned meeting place; yes, we were on time, a few minutes early. No guide, no group. We searched, walked inside and asked, asked police officers, went down to buses since thought maybe they were at statue, went back to meeting point; the meeting point was pretty much in our sight the whole time. No blue jacket, no “group”. We finally accepted that whatever was going on we had definitely missed the train to Florence. Called our private driver; he had no drivers to send to pick us up at that time, found a taxi and finally got back to where we were staying. Called City Wonders and asked why were they not there. She claimed they were. Told her No, they were not there; I WAS there and knew that. She then said well, you’ve traveled with us before and she was surprised we did not know the drill. I told yes, I had and I DID know the drill, that I was very surprised when they were NOT there. After some discussion which pretty much proved we had been at the meeting place and City Wonders hadn’t, we rescheduled. Messed up a lot of my planning but I wanted to see David so... They sent a new voucher to my cell phone. Made me uneasy, I always print the vouchers out from my iPad and my phone can be flaky overseas, but OK. We went to second try. No one there. Same drill as before, I called City Wonders about 5 minutes before meeting time given (they ask you to be @15 minutes early and we had been even earlier again). Told her no one was there. She immediately screamed at me for not calling sooner. I told I had called BEFORE the designated time and what did she want me to do? She hung up. Just at that time we saw a group, ran over, it was a City Wonders group, but not ours. The guide was very stressed and rudely told us to stay there and he would be back; he took the group to the train. I said rude because of his tone and facial expressions. We waited. No one else there, then a local man came up with 3 women who had been looking for a guide or a group. This was now past the designated meeting time. The guide shows up; he starts to help the women, checking off names etc., then he turns to me, thinking he was ready to get our names and information, I hold out my phone to show him the voucher and he starts SCREAMING at me, yelling that I was trying to push in front of the ladies. I tried to apologize and explain I thought he had finished with them and was ready for me. He continued screaming at me and said how rude I was. Well.....OK, I’m Southern, my mother was a lady, I know how to act,...but I had a Yankee grandma. By the time I finished with that little worthless twerp he had an experience like he had obviously never had before. I told to to please continue assisting the ladies and I would be glad to wait my turn, just as I had been. Believe me, he wasn’t happy, but he got a lot more polite. He got all of our info, and by this time basically ran us to the train, no instructions, information, etc. We barely got on the train on time. There was a 6th person who did not show. Probably wandering all over (at the designated time), looking for a blue coat that wasn’t there at the designated time. So, if you want to be unbelievably stressed, have at least one day ruined, deal with extremely rude and incompetent people, choose City Wonders. I did and I won’t again. Two things...we had two other tours with them on this trip, the other one involving a train was the same comedy of incompetence. Now that said, City Wonders was worthless as a company, however, when we actually got to the tour guides, not the jerk at the station, the tours were very informative. I wasn’t too impressed with being given a pretty much worthless “map”, left in the far end of Florence, and being told to find our way back to the station. Thought that was poorly done. Florence isn’t that big, but the streets we had used weren’t on the “map”. Fortunately we had a GPS and followed our tracks back. My advice, choose another company. City Wonders has seriously degraded since 2015. Oh, and for what it is worth, we had several Romans tell us probably they hadn’t gotten enough bookings for the first tour and that is why they were a no show; we thought maybe they just had the little jerk stretching too thin and he could make the connections. Whatever, doesn’t matter, next trip to Rome we will NOT be using City Wonders.

Hello AniKinTN, Thank you for your contribution. We were sorry to hear that your check-in experience did not meet up your expectations. Checking your confirmation voucher received upon booking the tour, I was able to confirm that the GPS coordinates and a google maps link was given to you so that you could get to the right meeting point by the check-in time. I can guarantee that on the 18/09/19 the rest of the participants booked on the tour were able to find the meeting point without any issues, and our representative did show up on time and left the meeting point by the departure time, as we didn't cancel the tour due to lack of pax as stated on your review. On the other hand, we listened to the phone call with the Customer Care Service Representative who assisted you after missing the tour, and we confirmed that the call wasn't terminated from our end. Please note that it's very important to show up on time at the meeting point, since we depend on the scheduled train tickets, and if clients show up 2 minutes after the departure time, the train may be gone by then. I also confirm that as gesture of good will, the agent re-scheduled your tour for the 21/09/19 free of charge, as we usually need to apply a re-booking fee to cover administrative expenses. Moreover, we have also followed up with the coordinator regarding your statement on the review. We hope this has cleared some things up. Best regards, Moisés, City Wonders team.

Best of Florence from Rome by High Speed train with Michelangelo's David
Oct 2019 • Solo
Loved the train very helpful staff helped get us on correct train and met us at other end. Danielle was great. Lots of walking but well worth the sore feet. Great to skip the lines to see David. Had lots of time to explore on my own. A trip I will never forget.

Great trip to see David
Dec 2018 • Couples
We booked this tour with City Wonders before we left home for our stay in Rome. The instructions of when and where to meet were very clear, and when we arrived at Termini station we were met by representatives and given our tickets for the high speed train. When we got to Florence we were met by our wonderful guide, Angelo. He was a very nice and welcoming man and very knowledgeable. You could tell he knows his stuff and likes what he is doing. While we enjoyed the whole tour, the highlight was David. He's breath taking. We sat and looked at him for the longest time and Angelo gave us all kinds of info about him, Michelangelo etc. We were lucky that we were in the ate off season so the museum was not crowded an also because we were the only couple on the tour! This meant we could go at our own pace. We enjoyed it very much, and like always, have been happy with our City Wonders Tours.

It's the DAVID
Sep 2018 • Friends
Did I say, it's the DAVID. Everything else was icing, which was nice. Angela was a wonderful tour guide: full of information, attentive to all clients and easy to understand. Was great to hear about more than just the highlights. Best tour guide we have had. Anywhere. Tour leaves plenty of free time to explore Florence and still make your way back to the train.

Easy, hassle free and informative.
We were recommended City Wonders by a friend. We were based in Stine and did their Colosseum and Ronan Forum trip and Florence by high speed rail day trip. First, the itineraries are well put together. You will see the right amount without feeling overly tired or wanting for more. Second, the guides make it informative and enjoyable. They are always full of energy. Third, they are hassle free I booked one from US before leaving and another in Rome. They are not commercial and personal. The groups are small and we each had portable headsets so we could hear the guide and still be wandering close by or resting. I would highly recommend them.

Awesome tour!
We started out bright and early from Rome at Termini station. The instructions from the tour company were clear on where to meet. Once we boarded the train it was a quick 90 minutes to Florence. Upon arrival it was a little tricky finding the tour guide as we expected him to match the employees in Rome. Nevertheless, we found Angelo and he was phenomenal. The walking tour took us through Florence with a stop to see the David. My only wish is that there was more time to see a little more of the museum before being hustled off to the next stop on the tour. The guide, Angelo, is a art history teacher and really made the tour magical. He taught us so much about Florence I wish I could remember every detail! Once the tour portion was over we had 4 hours to explore Florence on our own. We went to the leather market, the food market and had great gelato at a place Angelo reccomended. I visited Florence once before on a cruise stop and this tour was so much better. I can't recommend it enough if you're in Rome and want to see more of Italy this one is a winner.
