Alessandro is a simply spectacular guide. we started the day getting to know Pisa, we had free time to walk around, take pictures and continue to San Giminiano. Alessandro explained everything to us clearly and even though the city was quieter, we managed to do several things like climb the tower and have a delicious gelato. Monteriggiorno was not on our itinerary, despite being crazy to visit, but with all the affection Alessandro took us there for lunch at an incredible restaurant, the best of our trip to Italy so far. We went to Siena and loved everything about it. The trip was spectacular, comfortable car, we talked with our guide about each place. Not only do I recommend it, but I'm already planning to bring the whole family, we love it so much

We loved it! When we arrived at Pisa we were a little disappointed, it wasn't what we were expecting. But this game really helped us see some beautiful places inside of the city!

Great! We really liked how this could be done in your own time frame without the crowds of a group. Looking forward to reviewing it in the virtual tour.

The app could be lighter; As the internet was slow, the audio did not download and we were left without information about the location.
