I recently did a tour of Italy and had 6 tours lined up. Out of all 6 tours, this was by far the worst. I understand 1 star is harsh, but when half of the entire group (which consisted of 15-20 people) was complaining, that is never a good sign. The tour guide herself was "OK" but really never gave any intimate stories that you cant get out of history books, however there were several problems with this tour.
1) Skipping the Line for the Leaning Tower of Pisa - Its not necessary skipping the line, but a "scheduled time" which isn't explained to you until the END of the tour, in which we do on our FREE TIME. Besides, if there is a long line, it goes by fairly quickly.
2) The tour doesn't take you in the Baptistry or Cathedral. Sure, she explained the history of both buildings, but its terrible that we had to go buy separate tickets to enter both building.
3) there was no tour of the cemetery. again, you have to buy separate tickets... its actually very interesting, if we knew what we were looking at.
Overall, I would highly suggest not doing a tour at the Leaning Tour of Pisa. If you find a cheap tour and want to know the history... sure... at 45 dollars per person, you get an hour history lesson.
