We had a wonderful day trip from Florence to San Gimignano, Pisa, and Lucca with our tour guides, Alice and driver Maximo. They were very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They told us interesting facts and stories about the places we visited, and the history and culture of Florence and Tuscany. They also gave us enough time to explore and enjoy each destination. The drive was smooth and comfortable, and the scenery was beautiful. It rained but it was amazing. We saw the stunning medieval towers, the iconic leaning tower, and the charming walled city. Each place had its own charm. Alice was very attentive, responsive and flexible. They communicated with us via WhatsApp before and made sure we had everything we needed. They also gave us some great tips and recommendations for Florence. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see some of the most beautiful and historic places in Tuscany. Thank you, Alice and Maximo, for making our trip unforgettable
