    David was an excellent host and guide. Very personable and friendly. He met us at the train station and we had pleasant conversations all the way to the park where he told us about life in Pisa and the day to day goings on. Once in the park, he was extremely knowledgeable about every monument in the park and the surrounding areas including the Jewish Cemetery. He showed us little known parts of the park and even engaged my kids. He also gave us great recommendations for local food. Highly recommended. Only problematic part of the whole tour is arrival at the Pisa San Rossore station. The station used to be much bigger and its not very busy so finding the actual meeting spot took a few minutes.

First we spent 100 minutes on Pisa. Since we are early, we don’t need to queue before going up the leaning tower. The cathedral was closed for some reason that day though. Plenty of time to take pictures. Then we spent 45 min on the first two villages then 90 min on the final and the most beautiful ones. Timing is just about right. There was some delay on the trains but we still come back to Florence at 18:07. Great tour. Somebody says it is ambitious tour but this is what we want: seeing the most with the least time. Karolina, our guide helped us in changing our time for the train tickets going to Roma. She is extremely helpful and we want to thank her publicly!
