The staff was really friendly. I enjoyed the small group setting (about 30). I wish we had more time in Florence. Overall good tour. It was my second tour that week with Shore Excursion. Highly recommend this company.

not enough time
July 05, 2019
The transportation was very good, but not enough time! We barely had time in Pisa to stand before the iconic tower and take a selfie. If I ever go back, I'll separate these two into a single city each day.

Florence and Pisa
July 03, 2019
It was a good tour. Too long on the bus, but we knew it was going to be that way. The bus was comfortable. In Florence we had enough time to go to the Galleria dell'Accademia, to see il duomo, take pictures and buy a few souvenirs. In Pisa, enough time to take some pictures and get souvenirs. It was everything we expected.

Caring guide, hectic environment
June 09, 2019
Good luck with the guide, she was very caring and personal. The route we had to take from the bus stop in Florence was thru the dirty out outskirts of the train station. The Florence is beautiful but very crowded, so the allocated time wasn't enough. Pisa seemed to be a place in the middle of nowhere. Worse seeing the leaning tower with your own eyes though.

Great way to explore both Florence/Pisa
June 08, 2019
If you are looking for an option to tour both cities, this tour is great to go to both Florence and Pisa as it is a chartered bus that will take you to these locations and you can explore on your own. Our favorite location was Florence out of the two. I wish we had more time in Florence as there was just too much to see, but the time was limited to about 3 hours due the length of travel from the cruise port.

Florence was fantastic, but time spent there too short. Pisa, not much there, wouldn't go there again. Excursion time too limited, not enough time to venture on your own.

A quick look at Florence and Pisa
August 06, 2018
This excursion did give you the opportunity to explore Pisa and Florence without being on a guided tour, however, it seemed like we spent more time on the tour bus than at the two cities. We were only in Florence for 3 hours and at Pisa for less than 1 hour. I would have liked to have the opportunity to visit just one of the two places and spend more time there.

Great Tour
August 06, 2018
This was a great tour. We really just wanted transportation to Florence and time there to explore on our own. The bus ride was comfortable and the tour guide knowledgeable. Pisa was a fun stop too.

Bus Tour

Bus was comfortable and Air conditioned. The amount of time at the locations and walking to the "meet-up" points was a little rushed. Guides were friendly.

Florence and Pisa
July 09, 2018
The tour was fantastic, the amount of time however is not enough for both. Pisa doesn’t require much time which helps but Florence requires a lot more time. So I’m not sure if it would help if it was a whisked your.

Wonderful Day in Pisa and Florence
June 03, 2018
Everything was wonderful! It was our first tour experience in Europe and so glad that we booked our day this way. Very professional and helpful. Clean and comfortable bus. Thank you for such an amazing day.

On your own
May 29, 2018
We chose this type of tour because we didn’t have a lot of time in port but wanted to see the sites. With doing it on our own we were able to move at our own pace and not be held up with a large group. We researched the sites first so we knew what we wanted to see and where they were. As with any excursion or vacation there is never enough time to see everything, that’s why you do a second vacation and detail it to the sites and areas you want to spend more time in. Our travel guides on the bus were good and informative ahead of our scheduled drop offs and the bus ride wasn’t bad.

Good value
May 25, 2018
Lots of walking, the tour sets you up to see all the main points in Florence and you do it on your own , if you go fast you can see it all. The guide gets you to the tower vicinity in Pisa then you go on your own again. Be on alert for annoying hawkers and pick pockets, our guide chased a couple of pic pockets away from our group.
