        Well thought out 24 hour Tuscany trip
        Such a good time. Able to see three cities that not everyone gets to see when visiting Italy. The winery had the best views and everyone on the trip was very nice. Not too big of a group, and our tour guide was very nice, helpful, and attentive.

        Useful
        Somewhat informative. Biggest issue was finding the stops to catch the busses. Did more walking than should have. If you get off to visit something it was hard to find a bus if you were not getting back on same bus. Good idea that could be improved with detailed maps

        Wholesome experience , perfect for day trippers to Tuscany
        Barbara was an amazing Tour operator and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Many attractions covered in 1 day which is great but leaves less time to spend at 1 place. Also, lunch option could have been better. Overall very well managed and ran perfectly on time!

        Pleasant trip
        We had a great time. It is a long bus ride. About 2.5 hours to Pompeii. Then 90 minutes there. I wish I would have planned a little better because we were so rushed we only saw about half. Then 30 minutes to Naples. A couple hours there was enough time to eat and take a few pictures then 3 hours back to Rome. 7am-7pm. Internet didn’t work on bus. But Nico (the guide) was very friendly. Bus was comfortable. A/C worked well. I would do it again.

        It was a wonderful day, spent with my besties, a tour in the heart of Tuscany, with an exceptional guide, Barbara, a person full of life and with joy in what she does. You don't have much time to visit the cities, but that's how these tours are made, so that you get to visit as many places possible and then come back and stay even longer there. Thank you, Barbara and Sightseeing Experience!

      There are long waits for the buses 1 hour for Line B and 2 hour for Line A this makes it impossible to do hop off/on. We were forced to stay on the bus for the whole trip. Commentary was very had to follow as the bus moved. Only part of the trip we enjoyed was Fiesole otherwise waste of money. They need to add more buses or live commentary by a quality guide

      We bought the Hop on Hop Off City Tour for Line A and Line B in Firenze for 30 Euros each. We thought this would enable us to see Firenze and still have a bit of time left to relax by Ponte Vecchio. But it felt like the company only had 4 or 5 buses doing the 2 lines because waiting time for Line A is like 30-45 minutes and for Line B, like 60-75 minutes. Overall, we spent over 3 hours waiting, simply gave up, and took the regular bus to the Novella Station. Taxis can't be hailed, you have to call them on the phone, which is tricky for tourists like us who don't have local phone numbers.

      Only one tour available, which for the most part was a tour of the ring road. We didn’t go near most of the Firenze attractions. The only good part was getting off at the Michelangelo piazza. The first bus had quite comfy seats, but no info on which number was which language and then the earphones stopped working. The second bus had working numbered earphones but the seats were very uncomfortable. The stop at the station was next to a cafe, so we bought drinks for the journey, only to be told as we boarded the bus that we couldn’t take them! We use hop on hop off in all major cities and have been very satisfied, avoid this one like the plague, it’s a waste of money. There isn’t even a map to check where the stops are.

      Hi, we are sorry to read your review. The route of our tour of Florence, as for all the other cities in which we operate, is available for consultation online and on our free app available for Ios and Android as well as in the paper map delivered by our staff when purchasing the tickets. The prohibition of introducing drinks different from water on our buses is to ensure safety for our customers and the cleanliness of the spaces used. We hope that you will be able to use our convenient service again in one of the other 11 Italian cities where we are active in order to make the most of all the advantages of comfortably visiting the beauties of our artistic heritage.

      Unfortunately, this tour was not great. The audio for the attractions was out of sync which resulted in the very brief description being given before/after reaching the attraction. The history/description of each attraction on the tour was basic at best and in no way did this beautiful city any justice.

      The tour centres mostly on the ring road - nothing noteworthy to be seen! It didn’t describe the main tourist attractions - Duomo, Michelangelos David etc. The areas that people who come to Florence wish to see.

      The member of staff at the Santa Maria Novella (where we boarded the bus) was incredibly helpful. As we only wanted to do one loop of the city tour, she advised doing the tour after 4.00pm - at a cost of €12 each. Otherwise the cost of the tour is €23 each. Please do not waste your money as the tour is definitely NOT worth €23.

      Hi, we are sorry to read your review. The cost of the ticket you report being expensive is valid for 24h, during which thanks to our stops you can make the most of the Hop-on Hop-off service to plan your visits to the main attractions of Florence. All the stops are functional for visits to the historic center where, in order to protect our artistic heritage, it is not possible to get too close: our stop in Piazzale Michelangelo is also the best place to admire the panorama of Florence. We hope you can try our service in the other many Italian cities where we operate!

      I purchased the transfer from La Spezia to Florence with Sightseeing Experience and also the Accademia Tour with 24hour hop on hop off bus. Overall bad experience. The transfer from La Spezia is 2 hours. We missed our Accademia tour due to the transfer time and they refused to give a refund. The hop on hop off bus tour did not get anywhere close to the main city attractions. The wait time to get on the bus was long. Our day in Florence was a bust, I wish I had booked with a different company.

      We got on at stop #8 at the train station. Lack of signage inside the station, and the lady at the desk inside didn't really provide clear directions ("turn left and around the corner, red sign"). The stop is actually quite far back, by the McDonald's and coffee shop, where all the taxi drop offs are. There is a bus staff member there who will validate your tickets. Once the bus comes, it's a gong show, and the staff member does nothing to control the chaos of people rushing onto the bus despite there being a line. The bus doesn't run frequently; the shortest interval between busses is 25 min. At least you can download their app for a real time map of where the busses are on the route. I've done a few hop on/hop offs and this is one of the worst.

      I have taken many hop on/off tours in various cities. Had some confusion finding the meeting point near the train station since there are two different maps on the app and the stop numbers and pick up points has some differences. Good tour of Florence, but the three buses were grouped in the same area (about ten minutes apart) which resulted in a 45-50 wait in the other areas of the route. Need to space the buses evenly or add more buses.

      Good value if you manage to do both tours in 24 hours - 29 euros for unlimited travel. The first tour lasts about 90 mins and the second around 2 hours and 20 mins. You can jump on and off throughout the journey but we stayed on and just enjoyed the ride and the commentary.

      The bus should stop at certain places and give more information.This was just a glorified bus that raced around the outskirts of the city showing very very little.All the sights are in the centre where the bus cannot go. So walk and save yourself Eu 29 !!!!!

      It’s actually made up of 2 routes, one red route and one blue route- one that goes up in the hills , very different to normal hop on, hop offs.
      And because Florence’s central roads are narrow and pedestrianised the buses go round the outside of the city mostly.

      Nevertheless - 2 great bus trips and well worth the money
