What people are saying about Pisa

Amazing trip that made our dreams come true.! We love so much the kindness and understanding of Sia who found us as we were lost and the trip would not have been. Sia was so knowledgeable and spoke both In English for us and Italian for others. We liked this trip as it was less people and that’s where we ended up making great friends. Recommend it highly!!

We really liked the tour. The guides Oscar has been wonderful, with very interesting and timely explanations. He has also given us good advice to move around the city and discover other points.

Highly recommend this for any tourist who wants to explore more of Tuscany but not sure on how to get around. You get a taste of everything in one day and definitely get your money's worth.
