Perfect way to see Pisa from Florence
Ian_W, Feb 2023
Beautiful drive from Florence to Pisa. Met guide Davida who was knowledgeable articulate and flexible to our wishes. For extra 10€ saw all the five main attractions - tower cathedral baptistery cemetery and museum. All interesting and/or beautiful. Then Maurizio our driver returned us to the Piazza Michelangelo where we had great views of Florence before walking to Santa Croce where so many greats are buried. Brilliant trip
Great tour for a 1/2 day trip to Pisa!

David B, Jan 2015
I would definitely recommend a private tour of Pisa. It's the best way to see Pisa and to make the most of your day. Plus it's educational. A must see is the voice demonstration in the babtistry. Our guide was a little soft spoken and I was straining to hear her, but she gave great infirmation!

It was well worth the additional money to have a private car bring us to Pisa and a private tour guide. The two of us were able to take with the driver, ask questions and learn interesting facts about Florence, Pisa and Italy as we rode from Florence to Pisa. The tour guide in Pisa was exceptional; she had extensive knowledge of the city and the history and encouraged my 11 year old nephew to ask questions and answered them at a level that he could comprehend. This trip was a highlight of his trip.

Grumpas, Oct 2013
Some many people told me there was nothing to see in Pisa apart from a leaning tower how're ever I think the value in experiencing Pisa comes down to having a knowledgeable and friendly guide to explain all the history behind the tour, the baptistery and Duomo. I was fortunate to have this on my trip and my guide was fantastic. The trip is a great way to spend an afternoon to see the tour and understand the origins of Pisa while enjoying the comforts of a private journey to and from your hotel.

If you have a morning or aftternoon free in Florence, this trip to Pisa is perfect. Our driver arrived early and did a great job getting us to and through the crowds in Pisa. Our guide was amazing and encouraged us to stay in the balcony of baptistry for the acoustical demonstration. This tour was our eighteen year olds favorite!
