What people are saying about Pisa

Lucieno was a fantastic tour guide who was very informative about all the locations. He was very diligent, always making sure everyone was in the group before leaving. Unfortunately, through no fault of Lucieno’s, there were several people in the group who consistently arrived late to the meeting points which cut into our time in the other locations. But I still had a great time and was very glad I booked this tour

I chose again a tour with this florentine tour operator sightseeing experience because I really enjoyed their trip to Chianti. I recommend it to all the girls who are traveling in Italy and want to have the security of an organized tour without surprises. We visited Pisa, Siena, a very old village with many towers and we also had lunch in the middle of Chianti.
