Do not even think about a bike tour in Florence. This should be called it a walk your bike tour. Never road the bike for more than 100 yards befor having to stop. Just too many people in Florence. Save your money, take a walking tour. Skip the line Accademia Gallery Tour was very good. Worth it, so you do not have to spend 1/2 day in line
Excellent tour guide and beautiful city! It was a little scary riding bikes through streets with traffic and lots of tourists! Fortunately, we had lots of stops and we finished the tour with a delicious gelato!
The roads in Florence are too crowded for a bike tour
The meeting place was poorly marked and difficult to find even with a GPS
The guide was nice Valentia? however, her facts were memorized and delivered like an oral report with no personality.
After our initial disappointment that we missed the bike tour our bus from the port of Livorno was stuck in traffic - word to the wise ..allow more than two hours transit time from port excursions we were relieved that Florencetown accomodated us by rushing us to a walking tour in progress. Valentina, our guide was delightful. She was friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and say to understand. She invited questions and happily did her best to answer any questions we had. We visited many important sites including, Piazzas Santo Spirito, Republica, Vecchio, a view of and travel across Ponte Vecchio. I gained incredible understanding of the Medici family and political history of Florence. We were treated to a delicious gelato at a lovely little gelateria near Palazzo Pitti. In the afternoon we joined Valentina again for a tour of the Accademia - Florencetown arranged our tickets and we were able to get in very quickly. Valentina gave us lots of descriptive background on the paintings and sculptures that we saw. She guided us around the David sculpture with fine detail and description. Finally we ended our tour in the gothic section of the gallery where we were guided through a comparison of the changes in gothic and Renaissance pieces. Overall - Bravo! We had an excellent experience.
Francesca was amazing. Her knowledge is simply incredible. I loved the way we managed to cover a large area in the 3 hours, more than if you were walking. I would highly recommend the bike ride. I also wanted to visit David again and the visit was great. The only reason I haven't rated it 5 star is the wait time between tours, however in saying that once we got started Julia was also very knowledgeable and patient with answering questions. I'm amazed at how much study the tour guides need to do which is a skill in itself but also they must have good people skills and both Francesca and Julia were excellent at that. Thank you.
Really the best way to see Florence in a short time. My 7 yo son did fine despite the crowded streets and hot weather. As promised- helmets, water bottle, ear phones provided. Gelato was good too. David tour was less fun but still necessary to see. Really hot waiting in line to get inside
Learn from me and do NOT book this tour. My group of 8 including four athletic teenagers, learned this the hard way last week. Florence is a terrible city for a bike tour. We thought this would be a fun way to see the city but didn't realize how bumpy Florence's streets are like most cities in Italy, it has many streets with cobblestones. Even worse in summer these streets are filled with other tourists. There is simply no room to navigate around these crowds as well as Italy's terrible drivers pedestrians are not even given right of way here so you have to go through them, which annoys them and is dangerous for you as well. The guide gave no introduction or welcome, just took off. At one point she didn't wait for our group and we were separated, which was crazy. We ended up abandoning the tour before it finished and were so put off we never went back for our Accademia tickets. The part of the tour we did complete was not very interesting - mostly consisted of us stopping outside a church and being told what was inside and how to buy tickets to return. This review comes from a person extremely interested in history and who has taken several Viator tours and had a great experience on all of them. Unfortunately, this was not one of them.
