Our tour guide Alex is just amazing. Trains and itinerary were well organized. We have a lot of free time to explore around the villages without worrying about the transportation.
Btw, Alex is a handsome guy and the girls were so excited :)
amazing tour and place
This was a great day trip from Florence! Plenty of time to walk around Sienna and Pisa. Wine tasting was very enjoyable. Great views of the hills of Tuscany from San Gimignano and Monteriggioni.
Great tour. Small group at the wine tasting and lunch was terrific.
The trip was wonderful. We really enjoyed it. Alex was just wonderful. He covered every place as planned and gave us lots of information about each place. Alex is of of the best guide i have seen. Keep it up Alex
Our guide Alex got his job well done. Good advice provided for Pisa and time well spent to visit parts of Cinque Terre to get the best value for money photo shots.

We would never had seen these sights if it wasn't for this tour. It was a lot of public transportation to navigate but Alex took very good care of us. The sights were awesome, it was a special day.
Our guide Alessandro was knowledgeable, and he knew of the appropriate timeframes for all the places we need to stay for each area during the day. He also alerted us of potential pickpocketers and that helped the group stayed more alert.
I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family in the near future should they come to Florence area.
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.
Pisa was great but all trains were cancelled to Cinque Terre so we had to return. The guide was great but beyond his control.
Very difficult to find the start off meeting point
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
