The tour was very informative and exciting. Of course, that was mainly thanks to our group leader, who in a good mood shared her knowledge and was able to easily answer every question. I can also recommend the wine tasting - which was accompanied by tasty little things (good, sufficient base of local cheese and topped baguette with for the wine). And if you are physically reasonably fit, you should not miss the ascent of the tower - a unique experience for your sense of balance with a great view

We had a great half-day trip to Pisa from Florence. The meeting point is near the train station and you board a comfortable bus to Pisa. The travel time is a little over an hour. When we reached, we were introduced to our guide who took us on a tour of the Cathedral and gave us information about the Baptisary and the Leaning Tower. You can buy tickets to climb the Tower, which we did, and trust me - totally worth it!! Overall, it was a well organised trip and I would recommend to all.

Really great experience. Entry to the cathedral is free anyway but this is included in the ticket price. You can buy on this app or at the grounds. There is an option for all monuments for €27 at the grounds depending what you want to do. I did this in January so it was busy but not overly crowded as I assume the hotter months would be! Still recommend this ticket if you want to plan your day in advance.

A really lovely way to spend the day, and by far the most efficient way of getting around Tuscany without feeling rushed. The driver Massimo was excellent, very knowledgeable and very friendly.

The excellent guide, very punctual, met my expectations, I highly recommend it.
