What people are saying about Pisa

David was an excellent tour guide. We had a very good time exploring more of Pisa that we wouldn't normally walk along. He took us past lots of hidden places and shared his knowledge in heat detail. He even took time to ask everyone's names and where we had come from and our plans for in Pisa and the surrounding area. We would highly recommend to visitors to Pisa so you can see the main sights. Thanks
