Anastasia kept us going (and kept us from losing any group members) with clear English and kind attention. And Marco kept us safe on those winding roads both urban and rural. Extraordinary success! I am so glad we took this tour rather than cobble together a train and bus schedule to see it all. We were well tended.
Os guias foram bem simpáticos, mas em pisa ficamos 1 hora e não nos explicaram a história da torre e pq ela é torta, saímos do ônibus e tivemos 1 hora para fotos. Em San gimignano foi do mesmo jeito: chegamos lá por volta das 14hs e não houve explicação sobre a cidade, apenas que era medieval. O almoço foi oferecido por uma produtora de vinhos local. Degustamos vinhos, óleos trufados e acetato balsâmico. O almoço foi penne a bolonhesa razoável, por volta das 15hs. Em Siena chegamos 17hs, a guia do city tour na cidade não parava de mandar msg para o nosso guia reclamando do atraso. Ela não fez o city tour completo com a gente e ela não falava português, então tivemos que fazer em espanhol. Ela estava apressada e quis se livrar do grupo na Praça central e resmungou em italiano qua ndo o grupo quis acompanha-la até a igreja (falo um pouco de italiano, por isso sei que resmungou). Quando retornamos a Praça que era o ponto de encontro, outro grupo esperava por ela para fazer o mesmo passeio, acompanhei esse grupo no início do trajeto, por isso sei que o city tour do meu grupo não foi completo.
This was a great day trip from Florence. Pisa was kind of strange because there is nothing there but the property with the church and the tower but we were not there that long so that was okay. San Gimignano was lovely, be sure to climb the Torre Grosse it was amazing. The lunch at the winery was fun but Siena was kind of late due to the Christmas market traffic. I recommend this trip.
Fun visit to Pisa and San Gimignano. Beautiful views of Tuscany. Lunch at winery was fun. We hit lots of traffic entering Siena due to holiday weekend shoppers which cut our time in Siena short . It was madness and crowded .I can technically say I visited the city but that's it .our poor guide was rushing to fit in all the info and I did learn a bit . I recommend the tour but perhaps better on a weekday
This was an amazing tour.. I day well spent and will be in my memory for very long... Very well designed tour... started with trip to Pisa.. visit to San Gimianano ... ..lunch at winery ... and best part is walking tour to Siena and its cathedral.
The guide at Siena .. missed her name ... was very good..
This tour should also include a tour guide to Pisa to make the visit informative one.
Very full day. Enjoyed bus ride in between sites to rest our feet. You are definitely going to tourist traps but it's still enjoyable! I only wish there would have been a photo op somewhere by the fields of sunflowers. Great guides, great day. Climbing the leaning tower they recommend booking tickets in advance and I believe they are 18 Euro each so we opted not to. Walking around there was plenty to see and reasonable souvenir vendors. Be prepared to pay 1 Euro for the bathrooms in a few places. No big deal.
