It seems with COVID, this is not running every day PLUS we were sent to go to Stop 1 which, along with 18, does not exist due to road works. That cost us about 45 minutes until we found a small sign sending us to Burger King - so if you're reading this review then you'll thank me for preparing you....! The trip around Florence is not bad per say. You get to go up to Piazza Michalangelo with the bus but you also get to tour some of the more "dumpy" parts of Florence. If you want to tour the centre, it's foot or golf cart for you. The buses are reasonably kept but seem to run on varying days due to COVID. That would be OK if their website covered this fact and the stop move. It's simple and effective, I looked at the website when trying to find things and this information would have been useful. A solid 3-star rating.

Ridiculously awful. Audio commentary was a joke - mostly music and hardly any interesting or useful information. Bus stops were not always announced. Schedule was useless - ie. there didn’t seem to be any fixed schedule for each stop. We had to frantically flag the bus down all 3 times at Porta Romana, as it tore around the corner! The app to indicate the bus location in real time wasn’t much good either. I usually don’t like to leave negative reviews but I honestly cannot think of anything good to say!!

We booked two days of bus travel and a tour of the Duomo and the Uffizi. BIANCA T was the booking agent at the Florence train station and she was great! Extremely helpful with good suggestions about how to do as much as possible in the time we had. So we discovered a wonderful city and certainly could have stayed longer. Unfortunately on the longer tour it was raining hard, the bus was late, so we were not told of the stop we wanted. It meant walking down a long hill back to where we wanted to alight. All in all a good experience except for the rain!

There are 2 different lines to hop on and hop off. You see a lot of the sights of Florence and is a good way to see the city

Over all, I have always had a good experience with CitySightseeing tours, their personnel and the content itself, but Florence is an OUTSTANDING BAD EXPERIENCE. From the personnel who seems to dislike their job and give you the worst costumer service ever (although it seems like in all Italy is extremely rare to find good costumer service. Only immigrants know how to treat people because locals are just the worst) to the bus and the content of the tour, it all sucks! Poor explanation, very general information that keeps all relevant details from you because they want to sell it in separate tours and long journey that simply doesn’t show ANYTHING interesting. This tour is a complete waste of your money and time. Stay away from it! Is a shame for this company that usually delivers good experiences.
