We booked this tour because it was the best option to see Pisa and Florence by bus and the times aligned nicely with our cruise the Norwegian Epic. This tour was much cheaper than the tour offered by the cruise but it certainly didn’t lack in quality. The booking directions were spot on and out guide was brilliant. The bus was large and spacious with excellent air conditioning. The team were helpful via email when I asked about a 30minutes delay but there were other guests from the same cruise so it worked out for us giving them lots of notice. We had more than enough time in Florence and enough time to walk around and see the leaning tower of Pisa. At the end of the day we were lucky and the bus dropped us all off at the cruise port, we were expecting to end up in town at the cruise shuttle bus location so no complaints there.

Sabrina: Excellent Guide. The good: punctual, deliver what they promise, transfer to both sites, food. To improve: 51 people on the same bus with 3 different languages (English, French and Spanish) It is not an excursion that takes you to each of the important points, it takes you to the cities and they give you a map with the points that they recommend know. This same excursion with the shipping company cost 300 USD But that is clear in the description of the activity, so they do not break what they promise. If you want to learn or to be taken to each site, you are free visits, obviously at a higher cost Thank you very much!

Sabrina was the perfect guide we could not speak more highly of her. Organised friendly, helpful & professional. Went above & beyond to help everyone. We loved our tour of Pisa & Florence. Easy pick up point to find from port & returned to ship in great time. Could not be easier. Bus driver was also great. Thank you Sabrina We hope to return to Tuscany one day in the future & we will call in for a dinner of your Squid ink pasta Thanks again Nick & Samantha From Australia
