Laura our guide just took us to Florence because we've been to Pisa. She had lived there for 17 years and knew all of the side streets and where the main sites were. We'd get out and wander around with a map she'd marked which made it easy for us. Her knowledge of the city was fantastic, and she took us into to see the David; up a tall hill to see the city's overview plus the oldest church built in 800 AD; and finally to a wine tasting in a 500 year old winery. She was fantastic and really went the extra mile for us. Another couple and we booked her in Livorno so she drove us then just to Florence. Well worth the money we spent, because of this experience. We'd do it again in a heartbeat, but make sure to only ask for Laura to take you around. She's great.

It was an amazing day. We saw more than we ever could have managed by ourselves. The guide knew exactly where to take us and helped us out. Two older nuns and a service dog ..A day we will never forget.

Great day with a safe, nice driver who tried to tell us a lot about the country and its people. Punctual and very nice. Any time

very family friendly. great activity to do with kids!

Booking works quickly and easily. Nice destination
