  •   Una prospettiva diversa della città di Firenze, una pausa rilassante tra le visite ai monumenti storici ed ai musei. L'attività può essere svolta da chiunque non abbia paura dell'acqua o problemi di equilibrio. Tommaso ha comprovata esperienza ed ha saputo rendere semplice e piacevole un'attività che si ritiene adatta ad atleti o sportivi incalliti.
    Pittoresca la pausa presso Ponte Vecchio ad opera del gentilissimo Giacomo che ci ha calato dall'alto le vettovaglie nel suo delizioso cestino in puro stile rionale.

      paddling in the heart of Firenze, under the Ponte Vecchio... then having a cappuccino+croissant floating around... how more surreal can it be!!! Plus Tommaso is super friendly and knowledgeable about both his city and paddling. A unique experience that I can only highly recommend.

    thumb Sylvain

      Paddle boarding with Tommaso was such an incredible experience, truly a memory that will last a lifetime. Ended up as a private event due to lack of tourism. Great guy, highly recommend!

  •   Such a special experience in florence. We felt really safe and sturdy and he was very understanding about us being a bit late. We will never forget it! Well worth the money and a really fun way to see Florence get a tan and some excersize. Highly recommend to anyone Considering.

    thumb Ayanda

      Great experience!!! We enjoyed it immensely and had a great view and perspective of the city.

      My daughter and I have been in Italy for almost a month. Rome, Florence, Lucca, Historic Farm in Tuscany ... of all the tours and activities we participated in, Thomaso’s SUP at sundown was by far the absolute BEST!! We sat with Thomaso and Arianna, and talked about the local culture, the happenings in the US & our vacation to Italy.

    We found out that Thomaso is involved not only in local SUP, but also donates his time and passion internationally to men and women, many Veterans, with disabilities in the US. It was so refreshing meeting someone who really is so authentic and a hero in my book, as I am married to a US veteran.

    Arianna was our guide and she is simply the most pleasant and kind young woman. She took nearly 50 photos of my daughter and I and seeing the sunset from the quietness if the river was breathtaking. We stopped in the bank and Arianna provided delicious snacks and a cold drink for us. My 17 year old daughter loves SUP and it was my first time SUP in Florence. It was an incredibly peaceful experience and a great way to see Florence! Thank you so much!!

  •   This experience was one of the highlights of my trip to Florence. My boyfriend and I booked a private experience for a morning paddle. Arianna met us at 9am and we got on the Arno shortly. She was a great teacher and gave us a lot of insight into Florence. It was such a unique way to experience the city and to see it from the water. I highly reccomend doing this experience 100%.

    thumb Naomi

      My tour was with Arianna whom I really enjoyed. It was really nice to get on the water and see Florence without the crowds. Arianna explained that Tommaso’s business was expanding and going through some changes that explained some differences between the Airbnb description and the reality of what I experienced. The biggest difference was the promise of a “power breakfast”. This is not a strenuous paddle but it was an active morning. We were offered a drink from the bar after the paddle, but there was no mention of food. Do this tour but eat before you go. Oh and take a bottle of water. Arianna had a big bottle of water and I’m sure she would have given me some but I really didn’t want to drink out of hers.

    thumb Lisa

      Esperienza davvero bella, Tommaso ti da sicurezza e serenità. Da provare.
