A wonderful way to see the Ponte Vecchio! Highly recommend! We took the 6:00pm tour and our sunset was beautiful. Great for family or couples.

Our excellent guide Frederica made us feel at home as she led us from the center of Florence to the small boat dock on the Arno where we boarded Florence's version of a gondola, a 'barchetta,' which is pulled along the river by a boatman using a long wooden pole. We learned some history of Florence and its bridges, got some great photos, had a refreshing glass of rose wine made at a local Tuscan winery, and had a chance to get away from the throngs that clog the busy streets of Florence.

A lovely traditional boat ride down the Arno river which was informative and relaxing in the evening sun. Everyone was lovely and friendly and we had a lovely glass of wine too!

The boat is pushed by a a man with a pole, so the distance covered is not far, but the tour guide is knowledgeable and the wine is lovely. The tour starts with a 10 minute walk through old Florence and down to the river, with the tour guide sharing information and answering questions. Then follows the boat ride, with more information about buildings on both sides of the river, while sipping wine (there is water and orange juice for non-drinkers).

The river was beautiful and we did learn some history about the Barchettos. Our guide Mario was fun, but didn't give us any information at all about the sites as we walked from the meeting site to the River other reviews said this was a great part of this tour. He also had to ask the Italian speaking only rower to give us information about the river and sites along the river. We went in July at the last tour of the day, but did not get to see the sunset as it sets so late in July. However the ride was relaxing and beautiful and the Prosecco and crackers afterwards overlooking the river was enjoyable. Overall I would recommend!
