Long day! We did love seeing the various towns but I would probably stick with just Pisa, Siena and then wine tasting. The wine tasting was disappointing because it is basically a large group of various tours on a patio watching a sales pitch from a family winery. It was not a traditional wine tasting. The lunch was good, not great and the portions were miniscule. I say less sales pitch, more traditional wine tasting.
You guys, this tour was AWESOME! Honestly cannot say enough great things about this tour! I have to say this was my most favorite day in our 10 day vacation to 2 different countries. Obviously the sights were stunning but I think our great experience all links back to our tour guide, Alex. There were 22 people in our group. We had multiple stops throughout our 13 hour tour with multiple train changes and everything went right when there were multiple opportunities for things to get delayed. Alex was great at making sure we all knew where we were going so we made our trains and were on time. He was also very knowledgeable and was able to tell us how to maximize our time in each place to get the full experience.
We loved taking the cheesy but required, right? leaning tower of Pisa picture and there are no words to describe Cinque Terre. It is as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures and if it's not a place on your bucket list, it should be!
This tour is an easy way to see some places you might never see while staying in Florence that exceeded our expectations. If you go try to have Alex as your tour guide, you will not regret it!
Absolutely wonderful tour! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and knew how to navigate the crowds...especially the train our of Cinque Terre! He gave us information on each area and allowed us the freedom to wander as we wished. Great job Alex!
The tour was good, the Tower of Pisa was amazing, buying tickets there was confusing. Still a must to view.
The train ride, and Cinque Terre was amazing as well as the other little towns we stopped at. The views were incredible. Being able to see how people live day to do is what is important. The views from the coast were very nice, as well as the water being so blue, one of best tours so far. Stan / Jo-anne
The villages and views were amazing. You see PIsa in the history books, but seeing it is a whole new experience. It a must do to really experience small town Italian life.
This was a great trip. I loved the guided help from place to place, the suggestions of what to do and where to eat while there, and I met some amazing people -- all while still having the freedom to roam around, shop where I wanted, see what I wanted to see, etc. Our guide was great - he had great tips. I would highly recommend this trip.
Amazing day. Very impressed with the tour, saw a lot and it didn't seem like a long day.
Outstanding full day tour, transportation was a bit disorganized using trains and buses yet allowing group to separate once on trains. Got to Pisa early and that was genius since it was getting crowded by the time we left. Due to no boat ferry service that day in Cinque Terra, the trains were quite crowded. Alex our guide was humorous, informative and effective. He put in a very long day, but remained pleasant and funny.
Alex was our guide, and he was very good guide, he didn't lose anyone in our large group. He knew exactly when and where to get on the trains, and this helped a big deal for Trenitalia. He also gave us quick tips on where to visit and what to look for and this helped us make more in less time.
Awesome tour. The tour guide, Jess, was very nice and organized.
We were there during the Itailian holoday so the Cinque trains were super crowded, the small towns were amazing and worth a visit to. It was the highlight of my trip to Italy.
Negatives: This tour is operated thru another tour copany and the tour is cheaper on thier website. Also, Pisa is great to see but the time in Pisa could be shorted. Ended up sitting at McDonalds for 45 min waiting for the next train. Also, there was no where on the website that swimming is avalible in the small towns.
Fantastic day. The tour was organised very well, our guide was lovely and informative. Jess even went the extra mile by laying on the ground to take the famous Pisa pictures. Cinque terra was a great experience, would recommend this tour.
The tour was great just too much traveling by train
A great tour! The tour guide was very informative and an English speaker. The tour had the perfect balance of structure and freedom. Given the unique destination, having someone to guide you onto the right trains, buses, etc. to and from the destinations was a huge benefit.
Equal time spent in trains with delays. Guide should be more informative
Excellent - great timing for the day
You could not ask for a finer individual nor the transportation vehicle, it was an amazing trip!
It was great to see a part of Italy that I wouldn't have seen without this day trip. I wish there was more time in each location, though.
The guide was fine but it was a lot of traveling to a short stay in each town. Would not recommend this to family or friends
We are very glad we decided to take this tour! With the guide the train transfers was quick because he knew where to go. On our own it would not have been possible to do all we did.
It was a wonderful day! Alex was our guide and provided us with detailed information at each stop. His suggestions on what to do in each location made for a busy, but memorable outing. Loved the tour.
Alex navigated everything for us. He gave great recommendations in Cinque Terre, and we felt like we spent the right amount of time in each place.
This tour was amazing!
Alex is awesome and entertaining! It was a Sunday, there was a lot of people. He managed the tour really well and made sure we were well looked after and provided many honest advises. Strongly recommend this day trip.
Excellent in all ways!!!
Alex was a great guide. Well organized tour that allows time to experience the scenery and flavor of several villages. We enjoyed every minute of this wonderful day. It was a relaxing pace for a long day.
