Tour doesn’t go where advertised, which we were not told before buying tickets. Half the tour is detoured. Commentary is terrible, usually late. Don’t do it

We did enjoy our trip around on the bus as we got to see Florence’s beautiful sights. (11-07-18) Our issue was with the drivers complete disregard for people who are disabled, elderly or if you are carrying small children onto the bus. Bus A was...More

is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
