Always heard about the walled city of Lucca, but the city itself was charming. Gigi’s restaurant was very good. Pisa has great architecture besides the tower. Glad I saw it.

Lucca & Pisa - excellent tour!

We booked a trip to Lucca and Pisa with Viator as the excursion prices on our cruise ship were expensive. We needn't have worried; Martine, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and Leon a very good driver. We were even dropped off back at Portslade after the trip. Thoroughly recommend and Lucca is certainly worth a trip.

Martina was am amazing guide. We could tell she loved her country and telling us all the history of Lucca, Pisa and the surrounding area. Thankfully our ship arranged for transport to the city center where we met up with others starting the same tour. The double level bus was very spacious and had nice air condition. We were the only family who selected the food option with general guide. We were so happy we did. As Martina walked us around and pointed out the sites and history we made our way to Bar da Gigi for lunch. We were able to select a pasta option with salad that also came with bread. We added on the caprese salad. We really didn’t need it since the lunch was so large. The child lunch was even bigger. My daughter received a bowl of pasta first, then a pork cutlet with fries (which she could not finish) followed by a small ice cream with chocolate sauce. On our visit to Pisa we enjoyed taking photos and walking by the vendor stalls. Martina caught up with us to let us know our package also included gelato for all of us. So we received a nice cooling treat before heading back to the port. All in all a great day. If you want to climb the leaning tower, I don’t think there is enough time to do that on this tour even if you had a reserved time ticket. However pictures from the ground for enough for our visit and offered us enough to say we had a great time.

Horrible communication- missed the excursion and of course: no refund
Kathy_M
, Jun 2022
The communication was terrible and we missed the tour. I received a text early morning asking which ship we were on - which I responded to. I sent five more texts as well as 6 messages on the website that we were having trouble with the lines outside the ship. It was chaos. We had to buy a bus ticket (5Eu each) then wait in the line for the bus. None of this was communicated. Perhaps if we were pushy and jumped the line, we would have make it. Viator never communicated these steps outside this port. It took 1.5 hours for us from debarkation to get to the meeting place in city center. Missing the excursion by 30 minutes.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hi, we are sorry that your bad experience and incorrect information received from Viator did not allow you to take our organized tour. With the shuttle service it is possible to reach the meeting point in a few minutes, internal investigations are underway to reconstruct what happened and we will discuss with Viator to understand what happened.

Pisa & Lucca from Livorno
Kathy L
, Nov 2019
Enjoyed exploring Lucca; however, the three-hour stop was too long. Half that time would have been sufficient. Comfortable bus ride to Pisa following Lucca. Also would like to comment on the condition of the bus we were travelling in. It sounded like the bus needed some work on the air brakes.

Tuscany Bus Co was the BEST transfer service we’ve ever used. Representatives in clearly marked green vests met us at the bus stop where the Princess shuttle dropped us off. We were immediately checked in for our tour and advised to be back at the time our tour started. Emma was our guide and she did a terrific job walking us around Lucca, giving us history and restaurant recommendations. After a few hours, we boarded the bus and visited Pisa. We felt it was a great way to see both cities, and we were able to spend ample time in each. Emma was wonderful keeping the group together and sharing so many stories!

This is a great deal. Lucca is beautiful and Pisa is an iconic classic. There's even a tour guide with you on the bus, and I felt like we had a good amount of time in both places. Do it!

This is relating to the trip on Thursday 10th October 2019. I was stressed from the start as though this was to have commenced at 10.30 I had to wait for another ship to dock which was having difficulty because of choppy sea, so we didn't get away from Livorno until 12.30. I drew to the guide's attention that I had to be back at my ship for 6.30pm that day as 2 hours later getting away meant 2 hours later getting back to Livorno. Spent time in Lucca, lovely place, I would recommend it. Then on to Pisa. Before we left for Pisa I was asked if I wanted to to go Pisa. I said all I wanted to do was see it, take a picture and then get taken to my ship. We got there at 4.45pm approx. It was a bit of walk from coach to the tower and of course crowded. I lost the guide but then found each other. It was a mad rush to get me back to coach park to be collected by a different coach to get me back to Livorno to catch my ship in time. So many, many thanks to all involved in getting me to my ship. I was even left off beside my ship. Thank you so much.

Excellent way to see Lucci and Pisa
Donna_C
, Aug 2019
This is the best way to see these two sights. We left the ship and took the shuttle to the center. This stop is also where you board the bus to Pisa and Lucca. We went to Lucca first and the guide walked us into Lucca and showed us our meeting point. We had maps that she gave us that were easy to follow. We met up and headed to Pisa. We parked in a lot and she walked us to the entrance of theTower of Pisa. We had time there to visit all three places. We were dropped off right at our ship.

Nice ride and Overview
Tamara C
, Aug 2019
It was a very comfortable ride. The tour/shuttle service was excellent. Our family really enjoyed Lucca. We had lunch at a cafe. Everyone was very friendly. We would have liked to spend more time there. Pisa was crowded but we were able to get some nice pictures. Overall we could have spent less time in Pisa and more time in Lucca.

Great Choice
HMB_Terri
, Aug 2019
We wanted a transfer service from the Livorno Cruise Port to Lucca to explore the town on our own. This was exactly what we got and more. The Cruise Port provided a shuttle (at a cost) from the ship to the town center where we met the Bus to Lucca. The staff was efficient at getting everyone on a double decker bus and communications were delivered in both English and Spanish. The guide and driver were both courteous and responsive. The guide gave a brief commentary as we approached each destination, discussed the exact meeting time and place for return to the bus. She walked us as a group to the meeting place in Lucca, and walked us on the route into Pisa. The tour was well timed and we were dropped directly back at our cruise ship on time. The only thing to be aware of is that when meeting the bus at the city center, there is no sign that references Viator. The bus is operated by Tuscanybus.com.

Efficient, informative service to beautiful cities
Gregory_C
, Jun 2019
We booked this on the net and connected from a cruise ship and all went very smoothly. The tour escort was very friendly and informative and we had a good time in Lucca (great place for walking around and do go up one of the towers) and enough in Pisa fo see the leaning tower and the Basilica (don’t forget to get a ticket from the office). Don’t rely too much on the wifi on the bus.

Great tours of two historic cities
Helen_K
, May 2019
The tour of both Lucca & Pisa was well organized and provided us enough time to visit these two historic cities. The tour's cost was also a great value compared to the cruise ship's price of this excursion. Pick-up involves taking the ship's shuttle bus to Livorno's center. We first visited Lucca and were given over three hours to walk & view it's many attractions. Walking the city's wall also provided views of the town's sites. We had lunch with wine at the Roman arena area. Pisa involved a great deal of walking from the bus parking area to Pisa's Cathedral & Leaning Tower. The site was filled with people which made viewing & picture taking difficult. Thankfully we were dropped off at the cruise ship terminal - which avoided the shuttle bus ride from Livorno. Very friendly guide and great driver.
