Florence SUP adventure!
Jul 2019 • Couples
My husband and I (joined with another lovely couple) did a sunset SUP with Tommaso & it was our favourite evening in Florence! So peaceful on the Arno river & an opportunity to see Florence from a different perspective. Tommaso was a great tour guide - personable & knowledgeable with interesting stories to share about the area! Would highly recommend!

What an awesome experience. A completely unique way to see Florence. Tommaso is down to earth and super awesome. Surreal experience to sit on the river under the Ponte Vecchio and have a basket of snacks lowered down from above. One of a kind tour. I highly recommend it.

Serene, idyllic and extremely enjoyable.
Jul 2019 • Solo
Tommaso is an absolute don; so helpful and well-prepared, while also being a total delight to chat to whilst paddleboarding. The surroundings are mesmerising, and the water is as still as the beautiful Ponte Vecchio itself. If coming to Florence, this is an absolute must.

The Michelangelo of SUP in Florence
Jul 2019 • Family
We lucked out with Ariana as our guide as well. We arrived promptly at 6p where she got us settled in and gave us all a private place to change our clothes. She then gave us the plan for the night with an option to wait until 8p as the winds were causing the water to be a bit choppy. Our group of 7 all opted to hang out and chat while Ariana offered us delicious watermelon, drinks and even dinner for the delay. The best came to those who waited because we were able to watch the entire sun set over the Ponte Vecchio Bride...a gorgeous site. We were also entertained by a concert at the Uffizi Gallery where the musician was playing on a boat in the River Arno, with us, as the attendees looked out into the water. Ariana was super patient with our group, extremely accommodating by taking tons of pictures and kept us all safe as we each approached a small patch of rapids. At the halfway point, she even surprised us with the perfect "spuntino" that hit the spot, that she had organized with a local shop owner. We stopped to take in the sights & sounds right in front of the Ponte Vecchio Bridge and to watch the last bit of the sun set from our view. Paddling back with only the lights from Florence was just gorgeous! This activity, which they were able to accommodate a same day request for, became a highlight of an incredible European vacation!

Best activity ever
Jul 2019 • Family
We were due to do the tour at 6pm but the wind was too brisk so we sat for 2 hrs being entertained on the banks of the Arno by our excellent guide, Adriana, who brought us ice cold watermelon and drinks. We took off down the river into the sunset and the whole group enjoyed the trip so much that we only returned at 11.30pm. As novices we were slightly anxious but the activity is easy to do, even if you decide to remain seated as I did. Adriana took photos throughout and half way, under the iconic ponte vecchio, organised drinks and crisps lowered to us in a basket from an overhanging balcony. It was the most enjoyable way to spend a hot evening and will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of even the most exacting visitor to Italy.

Amazing SUP tour
We had the most amazing time on the SUP tour, I enjoyed it so much that I have put a review on TripAdvisor for the first time.

The views from the river were simply stunning and it was a very different and calm way of seeing the gorgeous buildings along the river and avoiding the crowds.

We hadn’t done SUP before but we were put at ease straight away with very clear explanations.The tour went over the allocated time but Tommaso didn’t rush us at all, he was a perfect host, very patient and informative.

Fantastic activity in the heart of Florence
Stand up paddle boarding along the Arno River in Florence under the Ponte Vecchio, at dawn as the city awakens. What could be better than that?

Well, not a lot actually!!

We met Ariana at 0730 and were on the river shortly afterwards. We the gently paddle boarded for two Kms up the Arno to the Ponte Vecchio. And the baxk

On the other side of Florence
This has been a truly amazing experience. Our first time in Florence and the first time SUP. The explore the city from the calm of the water and get the views of the amazing architecture and busy riverbanks and bridges was really great.

There has been a lot of rain before the tour but Tommaso was always really helpful and open in advance making sure it is is safe and the best experience for us. Very nice and entertaining guy.

The tour at sunset had the best golden lights and it was an active as well as relaxing experience topped off with a cold drink and some chats at the end.

Highly recommend it.
