What people are saying about Pisa

Our tour guide, Julio, was absolutely fantastic! The driver, Raul, was absolutely fantastic! This tour was worth every penny. The drive was beautiful, all the locations we stopped were breathtaking. The winery lunch was delicious, and really exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed all of the information that Julio gave us and we also enjoyed the quiet alone time we were given to explore each destination. Julio has a difficult task of speaking to people in three languages, he was excellent. Very personable and warm.

It was a great travel experience! The daily program was in good balance. We had enough time to see the beautiful hotspots of Tuscany; Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa. We had a tasteful Tuscany lunch at a nice restaurant. Last but not least we had a kind and profesional tourguide Francesco. He made a good atmosphere and made it for us a real unforgettable excursion!

The places we visited were incredible. We had enough time at all the locations. The place where we stopped for lunch was lovely. Our guide Julian made everything he could to make everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. His explanations and dedication were much appreciated by all!

Phantastic guide Julio. So much fun. Very good driver Raoul. Was a very good organised tour. Enough free time to explore the 3 towns. A must do on a Florence holiday.
