At 38 degrees, we decided to go on the golf cart tour so that we could see as much as possible in a relaxed manner. And so it was. Shaded and with a headwind, we had an extensive ride through the city, got out in between and took photos, explanations in German via an audio guide. The English-speaking local driver was also very friendly and gave additional explanations. We also drove through alleys that would not have been accessible with a sightseeing bus. Top.

We liked it very much, especially when there is little time and it is very hot. We received a lot of information, saw the main sights and the guide was very friendly and funny. We can only recommend.

Educational and entertaining. The driver/guide was highly informed and very friendly. The highlight was viewing the city from the higher hills.

Great guide Aldo, funny without trying, gave us a great tour of the city. Really enjoyed it.

Saw so much of Florence. I learned a lot and I recommend it highly
