This was one of the best days of our trip! Our guide, Alexander, was the best! He gave us so much information about the area, the city and the history while we were driving. We had a private tour guide in Pisa. Before going to Lucca we stopped at a seaside town and enjoyed the day by the beach for a few minutes and that had a wonderful lunch before heading out. Great day!

Wonderful trip, but very,very pricey for 2 people. It really left all the worries to someone else.
This tour was the 'splurge' of our trip and while we had a great day, it was a bit disappointing. We had a fantastic driver for the day - Allesandro - who was informative and enjoyable all day. In fact, when the restaurant in Pisa to which he usually takes people on this tour was closed, he found a wonderful restaurant in the countryside between Pisa and Lucca for us - it was truly one of the highlights of our entire vacation! While we enjoyed both towns, the Pisa portion was a bit disappointing. Read carefully - tickets in Pisa are NOT included and you will need to wait on lines (which can be long) to buy them (and they are not cheap!). Our guide there (Francesca) was just o.k.; she spent much less time with us than was expected/ advertised and when we did not want to go into certain buildings, she did not offer us any alternatives. You are on your own in Lucca and while we were provided a map, more direction / suggestion would have been appreciated (perhaps a suggested walking tour / top sights to see?). All in all a good day, but not sure it was worth the cost.

Our driver was fantastic, but our Pisa guide kept trying to convince us not to climb the tower (which ended up being a great experience) and the restaurant she recommended was closed. My 9-yo kept asking questions, and she didn't seem able to handle disruptions to her script. We did love walking the walls in Lucca, which had lots of things for my active children to do along the way.
