Believe me this is all there is to see in Pisa. We drove from south of Siena for what we could see in about an hour on our own. While the guide was extremely good (once we found him- we were where we were told to be and had to call back to the tour operator twice; we were 20 minutes early, yet had to catch up with him during the tour) and funny, as well as informative there just was not that much to see. But, if you are spending more than 45 minutes to get there, don't go unless you REALLY want to see the tower.
Very good guides for both parts of the tour. we learned a lot. Photos are not permitted in the galleries. Also, if you are driving in from someplace look out for the ZTL. Park way, way away or learn the zone before you go. Big fines each time you cross the line.
Man was this fun! You get to take a lot of back streets, so traffic is only occasionally a hassle. But our guides kept us safe. Understand it is four hours long, but there are frequent stops, so anyone who can ride a bike should do okay. You do not stop and go into many of the sights, but you sure get a different perspective. Our guide really wanted us to ask a lot of questions. He had a tremendous storehouse of knowledge. Take advantage!
You get two stops, and other than that you are just riding around. No real opportunity to take pictures if you are going by at 30 miles an hour. You cannot see much if you are not by the window. An open top bus tour at night would be a lot better.
