This tour is simply a ride to Florence and back. Drops you off at the bus station and picks you back up at a designated time. Went smoothly. Back to the boat way before we had to be, however.
Bus took an hour to get to Florence where you had over 4 hrs to explore city on your own....it was more than adequate..
Beautiful place to visit.

This is a walking tour!!!!! My husband has some mobility issues so was uncomfortable. Florence was an interesting city with lots of history. Would have been better with a guide because we got lost a lot especially trying to find the bus pickup area.
