    Very good! Would have given this tour a 5 stars if they were able to pick up passengers at the port vs having to catch the port shuttle for 5 euros pp each way out to the city to join the bus tour. On the way to Florence there was an accident on the highway and we were at a standstill for close to an hour. Tuscany bus tour still gave us 3 hours to explore Florence (still not enough time) than we headed to Pisa. Since the tour was running late returning to town they took us directly to the cruise port which was really nice.

He met us promptly at the port in Livorno, had bottles of water in the van for us and was so helpful to my mother who was in a folding wheelchair, which he took in and out of the van numerous times. Federico recommended a great restaurant in Florence and took us to a fabulous spot for gelato. I highly recommend Federico who exceeded our expectations in every way!

It was a very well organized excursion, lots of information, enough free time and a very competent tour guide. The tour guide only spoke English, which I couldn't choose for this trip, but was easy to understand. On the way back to the starting point we came into a traffic jam which probably would not have gotten like the last shuttle bus to the ship. The driver then took us straight to the ship.

I had the BEST time EVER, the guide was SUPER knowledgeable and made sure we had an amazing time. We felt well taken care of. I have been on many excursions and this was definitely the best. I would highly recommend and I'm definitely looking into booking more excursions in the future! It was definitely worth the price and I made it back to my cruise in time!

Thanks to Massimo, we experienced a great and very informative tour through Tuscany and were able to see all the highlights!

Despite route changes by AIDA due to the bad weather, everything went great.

Everything went very well! Very good organization!
