Highly recommend the tour except it was extremely rushed from the moment we left Florence throughout the tour and the return back. Tour guide was terrific and the climb up Pisa was a once in a life time experience with breath taking views.
Excellent! Driver was very pleasant and tour guide had much information. Loved it!
Doing what: Private Tour: Pisa and the Leaning Tower
Not having seeing Pisa while we were in Florence would have been a big mistake. Half a day was just perfect for us. Our tour guide was great and shared insightful stories. The church was absoluetly fantastic. We must confess that we did not know Pisa had one, if not the most beautiful, church of Italy. Everything was wery well organized. We did not go to Lucas and maybe a full day Pisa and Lucas would have been great too. It just depends how much time you have. One thing for sure, it's a must see place! Caroline, Martin and Marianne
We enjoyed this tour very much and recommend it to anyone interested in the Leaning Tower, the day went well and Pisa was a nice small town.
The beginning of the tour was quite disorganized with the different language guides and the headsets and the people clamoring a bit crazy. This being said, once our tour got started, we had a great guide. I think her name was Chiarra sp She was knowledgable, cheerful and mindful of the hot hot sun and kept getting our group into the shade! Would still recommend this tour highly.
This trip was a great way to visit the town of Pisa and the famous Leaning Tower.
First things first, Florence is VERY hot so take a hat and sunscreen as they make you wait in the sun in a line to hop on the bus...well we waited about 15 minutes which wasn't pleasant and then got on a poorly air-conditioned bus for our trip to Pisa.
In saying that, our guide was really great, explaining all the sites on the way and was very informative making the bus ride more interesting.
Once we arrived in Pisa, we had to walk about 15 minutes from the bus stop to the actual gardens where the leaning tower is. We then met with our other guide that walked us through the churches which was interesting.
We had a skip the line to climb the tower of Pisa but because I had a small purse with a strap, I wasn't allowed in and they wanted me to leave the bag in a cloak room which I wasn't willing to do with all my valuables in there. So, if you are going to climb the tower do not take any bags with you or leave them on the bus if you want because you are only able to take a bottle of water with you if you are going in the tower.
Good guide. Easy to understand. Was quick and concise with the information without information overload. Just what we needed after having 2 tours in Rome and 1 in Florence.
The tour guide was excellent but the walk to the bus is quite far from Pisa. The skip the line for walking up the leaning tower was worth the cost.
Very good guide. We did not expect a 20 minute walk to the tower etc. but once wife were there it was very good and the guide from Pisa was excellent. A very enjoyable tour
Suprise that Pisa Tower is smaller than we expected
Worth visiting. Good Guide. Short period of time spent at the sights. Would have preferred at least 45 minutes more at the sight.
It was a good tour, and climbing the tower was great fun.
they don't tell you that the coach is quite a walk from the tower. So if you have difficulty walking far, it is not for you. One lady on the trip could only manage walking half way there, and had to get a taxi.
Trip was excellent. However we felt the free time left for us to climb the tower was too little. That too, we were asked to wait inside before going up, and it was a bit of a rush
a must do!
Very good tour. The bus was a bit hot and there were several requests to make it cooler, but it was an exceptionally hot day and nothing could be done. We had a great local guide who explained everything and patiently answered all questions. She represented her beautiful city very well.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided interesting insight that I think would have been missed if you walked these areas alone.

The hour-plus bus ride was horrible. Our bus apparently was having a problem with the air conditioning and the outside temperature was around 39c or 101 decrees as we traveled to Pisa from Florence. Upon, arrival at Pisa and the bus parking area, we had to walk a few blocks or so before arriving at the gates of Pisa. So we started off hot and cranky, however, our guide was very good and provided a lot of history about the Cathedral Square and Monuments, and it was great to skip-the-line to enter and climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
There were two buses each of approx. 40 people. The drive was about an hour out of Rome on a 35 degree day with the bus airconditioning struggling. Despite the discomfort I am glad I did the tour.
the tower and the church are great.
The guides were average. Tried to be funny but their humor did not strike me. Also had scanty information.
Did not speak much about what a great city this one was.
Good tour, guided with air conditioned bus. Not worth it to stay in Pisa for an extended period of time. Informative. Access to two of the three buildings. Short, sweet and to the point.
Très mauvaise organisation. Il était demandé de venir 15 minutes en avance et en fait on m'a fait attendre un groupe venant de Florence arrivé 20 minutes après l'horaire de début du tour. Du coup le guide n'a pas fait la visite des quartiers historiques. Je suis très déçu de cette première expérience et ai le sentiment de m'être fait avoir. Je ne conseillerais pas ce tour.
Trop long pour trop peu. La visite dure 2 heures sur le site. Une heure avec une guide et 1 heure libre. La visite guidée comprend une visite extérieure du site dont un arrêt devant la célèbre tour et se termine par un 15-20 minutes à l'intérieur de la cathédrale qu'on s'assure de nous faire quitter avant l'heure libre. Ainsi, si l'on veut poursuivre la visite de la cathédrale magnifique ou visiter l'intérieur du Baptistère ou entrer dans le Composanto, il faut refaire la file, acheter un billet et visiter en 1 heure. Bref, en voyage ou le temps est précieux, ne vaut pas la peine de perdre une demi-journée pour ça alors qu'il y a tant de choses à voir à Florence.
Guide at Pisa was superb! Very friendly, jovial and knowledgeable. Simply lovable...
Trip was good. Leaning Tower of Pisa was amazing.
We really enjoyed our tour of Pisa and the Leaning tower. Our tour guide, Ricardo is very entertaining and knowledgeable.
