What people are saying about La Spezia Cruise Terminal

04/2024. La Spezia to Pisa and Florence tour. A bit fast moving during the walking portions due to time constraints with our cruise ship. Very informative. Our Italian guide Alexandro (Alex) spoke English clearly and did a great job of keeping track of our large group (55). He made sure we had sufficient bathroom breaks. Bobby our bus driver was prompt and friendly. We learned a lot about the background of the monuments we visited. Highly recommended!

It was a great tour we really had such a wonderful day, it was very crowded and could have been improved if we could hear the guide on the walking part of the tour, no mic and headphones, but overall we would recommend

Tour of Pisa guide and driver were great Very informative good job KIKO and ANGELO Ciao
