Florence and Pisa

A must do tour!
November 23, 2023
This is a must do tour! Florence is a charming town. Seeing the statue of David was spectacular! The tour in Florence was very informative, our tour guide was lovely. We had lunch in Florence and then drove to see the leaning tower of Pisa.

Our driver/guide was an excellent source of information. He accomodated all passenger's request, was polite and helpful. Great sight seeing tour for people with limited mobility. Have to admit, was one of the best excursion experiences we had compared to the ships' offerings.

Our tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable of Florence. Our driver was even better. He definitely knew his way around. Dropped us off to visit Pisa in an awesome spot as we were free to explore on our own. We were very happy. This was our favorite excursion of our trip.

Wonderful tour guide and driver!

It was so nice to be picked up and dropped off directly at the cruise terminal, saving us precious time to get to Florence. Our group of 5 wanted to skip Pisa so we could have more time in Florence, so we were pleased our driver, Andrea, was flexible and accommodating. Andrea was also very knowledgeable and super friendly. Our tour guide in Florence was also very knowledgable and gave us great tips on where to eat in Florence. She moved us along at a reasonable pace (not too fast nor too slow), sharing lots of great information along the way. The only down side is that we paid the full tour price, which included skip-the-line tickets to see David at the Academia Museum, and later discovered the museum was free that day. Oh well ...

Pisa was great.
November 23, 2019
This tour started out wonderful. Our driver was so informative and spoke very well. She made an effort to tell us what she could about the areas and town we were driving through. She let us off in Pisa and gave us lots of time. She then drove us to Florence. This was a beautiful drive. She stopped at the top so we could take pictures and then thru the town its self. She was told the guide was running late so the driver showed us a lot and gave some history as well. She was wonderful! After she left us off with the guide and we waited for another group of for our guide we started. Our guide was not very good. She talked a lot about how hard it was to become a guide and her family. She lost a person at the 1st stop and that took time. Shel ost us when she turned a corner and our audio no longer picked her up. We spent a long time trying to find our way to the Church with the David and I could hear her however so many people... Needless to say our tour was not a tour it was a mess!

Great day tour

I booked this tour for me and my husband for a pick up from our ship, Crystal Serenity. There were 8 of us, which was a perfect size. Our driver was great. He drove us to Florence and on the way we stopped to take some photos. We met up with a nice young woman who took us into the museum. We then went on to Pisa. The entire day was terrific.

Tour of Florence and Pisa
August 25, 2019
Our tour guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and took her time showing us all the historic sights in both Florence and Pisa. I have used Shore Excursions on numerous cruises and will continue to use them. I have never been disappointed and love the small groups in every tour I have been on.

Our tour guide is from Pisa so he was able to share extra highlights. We got to the Tower early in the morning and it paid off. The weather was still comfortable and the crowds were very light. We then took a ride to Florence for a walking tour. Our guide was very entertaining but the weather was extremely hot. They do not stop for lunch so bring a snack or you will have to wait until the end (of both tours) to eat. She did take us to a natural gelato place that was exquisite and we got to see many of the highlights the city has to offer. Would definitely return to Florence for a longer stay.

Loved Florence
July 27, 2019
This was a great tour in a private van for just 8 of us. Our driver was extremely nice and friendly. We got to Pisa pretty early before crowds got big which was nice. Florence was amazing and I wish we would've had more time to explore. Our guide there was so nice and very passionate about her city....wishing she had more time to give us much information as possible. Would recommend this tour to anyone!

Loved the small group tour!
July 23, 2019
Stefano, our driver, picked us up at the port in Livorno. We had four people with another family of 4. He drove us to meet up with our Florence walking tour guide, Pia. We met with her and visited the Academia and then walked around Florence to see Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Ponte Vecchio. After our tour, the driver picked us up and drove us by the Chanti vines to see the countryside before heading to Pisa. He asked us what we wanted to do. We were able to semi-customized our tour. It was a great experience!

Good amount of time spent at each place. Definitely go up into the Pisa Tower. The tickets are for visits every 15 minutes, so don't get put off if you see a line. A locker for your bag is included in the price of the ticket. There are nice restaurants for lunch in the little side streets off the Republican Square in Florence.

A Fabulous Tour
June 21, 2019
This tour was the best of our time in Italy. David was our driver and he spoke excellent English and was very funny and extremely knowledgable about Florence and Pisa. The other drivers from our 4 other tours didn't even speak to the passengers. Claudia was our tour guide once we got to Florence and she was fabulous as well. We really couldn't have asked for a better driver/guide combo.

This tour was a bit different. You are picked up by a bus driver and taken to Florence. There you are met by a tour guide that gives you a quick paced walking tour of Florence, including Michelangelo's David and the Ponte Vecchio. The City is absolutely gorgeous. It was raining while we were there, and it was still an absolutely wonderful experience. The tour guide leaves you to explore Florence for an hour or so, and then the bus drive picks you up for a quick trip to Pisa. In Pisa you have about an hour or so to see the tower, grab some gelato, tiramisu, or a cannoli, and then it's back on the bus for a ride back to your ship.

The excursion was fantastic. Our guide meet us at the pier and was extremely knowledgeable about thr 2 cities we went to. She managed to go the back way and get us right to the square to see the tower. It was a pleasure to be in a small group and travelin a van.

Florence and Pisa plus Tuscany
November 07, 2018
Excellent. The ride in our 8 passenger coach through Tuscany was great. Frequent stops for photos. Florence was our favorite stop on this cruise. Our guide was a little high strung, but lots of fun and very informed about every nook and cranny of Florence. She took time at each point of interest to give us some detail and a bit of history. Answered every question with clear and concise answers. She really knows the place. After the tour she let us go on our free time but first pointed out what we needed to know. Where to eat, bathrooms, where to meet. She was great. With Pisa we were pretty much brought to the gate, given instructions and what to do and see then let go. That is all that was needed. Great place to see in person. Got us back to the boat on time. Excellent excursion.
