Great excursion!
July 04, 2023
So glad my husband and I did this trip. Seeing Florence was amazing. Our tour guide was terrific. The scariest thing was having to find the bus in Florence. We didn’t have international phones so we had to read a map which helped a little memorize who’s on your bus as we followed a family to the bus. Pisa was great as well. Not mush to see except for the tower so less time was needed. Could have spent a few days in Florence alone.

June 15 - Sara and Massimo were awesome

So well organized. Mass was a great driver and got us everywhere quickly and safely. Sara went above and beyond and took us on a small walking tour and gave good insights on where to eat, how to buy leather, really top notch.

A great and easy way to see Florence and Pisa
June 06, 2023
This tour is such an easy great way to see these two cities, especially if you are doing it all in one day. Susanna and Luca were both very helpful in driving and guiding us to our destinations. The touring of the cities is basically on your own. However, there were a few groups that were on the bus that did a tour with our guide throughout Florence. They give you approximately 2 hours in Florence and an hour or so in Pisa. It is just enough time to see some cool sites (from outside) and then maybe have lunch. This is a great tour for those who like to do things at their own pace and the tour guides are extremely knowledgeable as well. I would highly recommend this to any of our travel agency's clients.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I was worried I would not be able to find the location where we met our guide/bus. I had no problem - it couldn't have gone smoother. The bus ride was enjoyable and the tour guide did a great job! This tour was $100.00 cheaper than the comparable cruise line tour and worth every penny.

Good excursion
November 13, 2019
We were very pleased with this excursion. I was concerned about connecting up with them but it was no problem - the free shuttle bus took us to the starting point. At the end of the tour we were running late because of traffic so they brought right to the ship. The guide offered great information as we rode in the bus and was very good about answering any questions we had. One thing I would do different would be to not walk all the way to the bridge - it took almost all of our free time to get there and there were very interesting shops and points of interest that were closer. We had just the right amount of time at the Tower in Pisa and again the guide gave us a lot of good information about it. We had scheduled a similar tour though the cruise line but ended up cancelling that one (which cost a lot more) and getting this one instead. We are very happy that we did go on this one instead.
