Our cruise changed the port of call to another port due to bad weather. GetYourGuide representative contacted me via WhatsApp on the change and the extra fee I had to pay coz the distance was longer. I was ok with that. Gave instructions on where to meet them. Guide was Alexander. He was excellent and very knowledgeable. However, I felt that he could have arranged to meet us at the entrance to Miracle Sq, Pisa, instead of arranging for us to walk back to the bus in the parking lot on our own. I wasn’t sure of the way and had to asked for directions along the way. A few others were also lost. Other than this all was good. We enjoyed ourselves.

Our guide had to cancel the trip due to covid. However, the tour company reached out to us and gave us the Pisa/Florence all day trip with no additional charge. We appreciate their proative apporoach and consideration.

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.

Everything worked out wonderfully! Very well organized! Everything as described!

Excellent tour guide and experience. Highly recommended.
