It was an amazing tour! Our tour guide Simona was great, she gave us so much information and showed us so many great things.
Potential good tour. But terrible driver
Ray_D, May 2023
Driver was 1 hour late, and claimed he had been waiting for US ! ,while we waited in the rain. He barely spoke the entire day. We were concerned about could he be trusted to to get us back to the dock by the deadline,so we cut our day short. He didn't even have an idea what our deadline was.
Horrible experience, thanks to a silent driver
Thomas_B, May 2023
The tour driver was the worst we have had in years of cruising. He dropped us off and picked us up, without providing any history or useful information. We might as well have had a taxi driver who spoke no English. And he was an hour late in picking us up.
Loved the tour
TomBarrett, May 2023
We had a great day with Simone. She was awesome and very flexible and knowledgeable. We saw so much in one day taking in the best areas of Florence, parts of the beautiful wine country and Pisa. After hearing our interest in wine, she was able to set up a wonderful visit to a beautiful winery. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
Outstanding tour.
Richard_S, Nov 2022
Outstanding small group tour. Covers Pisa and Florence. Guide/driver had much local knowledge. Pisa is must see. So many skip it..
Do this trip - it's amazing!
KathrynTrewin, Nov 2022
Our driver was excellent and clearly passionate about sharing his home area with us. He took routes that let us see parts of Firenze we might otherwise have not experienced and we had a shared lunch and Gelato to finish off an amazing day!
No show-left us at the dock!
Patti_O, Oct 2022
After searching the dock for our driver for an hour and a half we found someone from the same company. She called her office and they told them it was cancelled. I immediately show the lady my two confirmations. She put me on the phone and the lady at the office told me they did NOT send the confirmations. Instead they sent a cancellation. I read it to her and she still denied it. 10 minutes after the call I received the cancellation. Would not book this excursion!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Dear Patti, We are dreadfully sorry about what happened to you and are also mystified regarding the cause. We never received this reservation. We spoke with Viator about it and are at an impasse. They show it on their side but we didn't receive a notification. This is the first time this has occurred in all the years we've been collaborating with Viator and frankly we don't know what to say, except that some sort of technical glitch must have transpired. We can assure you, however, that the cancellation you received came from Viator, not from us, which also explains why we don't have record of a phone call from you on the day in question. Again, we regret the stress and disappointment you endured, and are still perplexed about what went sideways.
Highly recommended as a shore excursion
Lise_T, Sep 2022
Chauffeur/guide Valerio was on time and easy to find. He started sharing his extensive knowledge of the area as soon as we got in the car. Route was modified to offer beautiful winery scenery. We were on our own in Florence but he had mapped out a route for us. We shared lunch together and had a wonderful trip back to Livorno in time to board.
Ask for Simona!
Hannah_D, Sep 2022
Our guide/driver Simona was wonderful! We got to see everything we wanted and then some! Very intimate experience with only 8 guests. Felt like a private tour!
A great overview of Pisa and Florence.
Sandi_A, Jun 2022
Thank you to our great host Alberto. A lovely tour. We spent time in Pisa, he highlighted things along the way, then we drove to Florence and saw the city from the lookout and then went into town. We saw all the sites you'd want to see to orient yourself to the city. I'd recommend a day alone exploring after this tour. You always have to be careful when booking these tours as you have no control over other guests. We had two ladies who were late returning to the meeting point and thereby shortened the time at the other sites we were to see. Our driver was SO apologetic but it was not his fault. Over all, I'd recommend this day trip.
Steve, May 2022
This was more transportation than a tour. The driver provided limited information, not even telling us what sites required tickets for admission or where to get them. We were driven to Pisa and Florence, dropped off and told when to be back to our meeting point. Other than that, we were on our own. It would have be helpful to have at least been provide with a map of Florence so that we could better find our way to the sites we wanted to see. If you are looking for a guided tour of Pisa and Florence, look elsewhere.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi Steve, We are sorry that you are not happy with this tour from us. We take this very seriously as we want every client to have a wonderful experience with every service we offer. Would you mind letting us know the date of your tour and who the driver was? Feel free also to contact us at so we can investigate and further assist you. Thank you and we hope to hear from you
a great excursion from our cruise
Tracy_B, Nov 2019
We had a day ported in Florence on a cruise and we decided to take this tour as it was affordable and offered stops to see Pisa and Florence. We really enjoyed every stop on the tour and got to meet the people who were also on our cruise. Pick up and drop off was super easy. If you are hoping to have time to climb the Tower of Pisa, you will likely not have time on this tour. We were in Pisa for about 35 minutes, and the climb takes about 40 minutes the guide said, if you climb very quickly. Overall a great way to spend our time on our Florence day ashore.
A Cultural Excursion
Virginia S, Nov 2019
We had a wonderful tour visiting Pisa and Florence thanks to our friendly tour guide and driver Laura from Diverinrome who was very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. She not only provided substantial information of the points of interest but also went extra miles to show us the beauty of the fields of Tuscany. It was quite an unforgettable cultural experience immersed in the grandiose art, architecture, and history of this beautiful country with the assistance of our lovely guide Laura!
Leaning tower and more!
Josh H, Nov 2019
The tour got off to a rough start, but Laura and another lady from the company did a great job they got me where I needed to go! Laura was very personable and friendly, I really enjoyed the trip and the style she brought to it!
Pisa and Florence--drop off
dianne302, Oct 2019
Although our guide was friendly and enthusiastic, she failed to provide us much in the way of direction--or information on this trip. We were in a group of 7 and my husband and I were in the last row of the van. Despite the fact that we have no auditory issues,neither of us could hear what she was saying during the commentary from our seats. Our friends who were seated ahead of us did not have this problem, but for us-- between the road noise and the fact that she did not use a microphone, two people with normal hearing, missed most of what she said on this tour simply because we climbed in the backseat at the start of the day. We were dropped off for a brief photo shoot in Pisa (which, by the way, is not worth the 45 minute drive from the Naples cruise port if your time is limited as ours was) just to take one of those mandatory touristy pictures. We then proceeded in the opposite direction to to see Florence which is really brimming with important sights. Our guide stopped the van in a nondescript rest area--the purpose of which was never communicated to us. Later on when we asked her where we would find the bronze statue of David, she said--"Oh that was why we stopped before! No one in our group had any idea, so this was not an issue of us not hearing her, it was the fact that she forgot to tell us why we were pulling over. Once we were left in Florence, we asked her where the original David was housed. She told us it was in a museum and gestured vaguely into the city. Simply providing us with a map or even written directions--or an address would have made sense to us. For those who have limited time to see this region, consider another tour that includes "skip the lines" for Duomo and Florence museums as this tour was simply transportation and valuable time will be wasted searching for key locations.
Great tour guide!
Reid_M, Oct 2019
Our tour guide, Valerio, was knowledge and very helpful. He went out of his way to make sure that everyone was accommodated.
Great Choice
Michael J, Oct 2019
Our van was very comfortable. Our driver was very informative and knowledgeable. He was able to maneuver the van into some very tight spaces so we could see the sights up close. We really enjoyed our day at Pisa and Florence because of this tour package.
great day
lorraine g, Oct 2019
This was a great way to go we had a wonderful driver Alberto who was very knowlegable and went out of his way for us. My hubby has a bad knee so Alberto drove us to the sites and waited for us then took us to the next site and once again waited whilst the other couple walked around to the sites and picked up at a designated spot, great job Alberto.
CRISTINA_A, Sep 2019
Lisa the guide and driver was excellent She was reliable kind and very nice on time caring cool knowledgeable and responsible

Ivan_M, Sep 2019
