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.
