Recently we had a tour of Florence and Pisa conducted by Stephania. The tour could not have been improved upon. Stephania not only knew of the history of the city and it's people, she also knew the history of each building and showed a thoroughly comprehensive knowledge of her country. We could not be happier with Viator and have yet to be disappointed with any of their tours.
Great tour! We were picked up right by the exit from the cruise ship terminal. The guide provided great information on the trip to Pisa. We were allowed just enough free time at Pisa to explore the area. The guided tour of Florence was informative with a break to grab lunch.
This tour was excellent. We traveled in an 8-passenger van which was able to access the city streets and put us in short walking distance to the Florence highlights. Additionally, our driver Marco allowed us sufficient time to do some shopping as well as sightseeing. He also brought us to a local restaurant for lunch and before departing Florence, he brought us to a gellato shop for delicious dessert! Marco was very knowledgeable and a good driver. If you only have one day to see Florence and Pisa this is the way to go!
A fantastic day out, well organised and guided with much enjoyment by Stephanie who made the day with all her information and stories. She tried to make sure we saw as much as possible in the time allowed. Our only worry came at the end of the trip when, due to traffic, we thought we might not make it back to ship on time but our driver negotiated the traffic well and got us back with 2 minutes to spare.
Our tour was the best, it was everything we wanted and more. Half the price of what we would have paid for a tour booked on our cruise.
An excellent tour led by fabulous Marco and his colleague in the blue suit whose name I fortunately do not recall. Marco was a subject matter expert in all things Pisa and Florence and indulged our group's many curiosities about everyday Italian life as well. He and blue suit sorry! were also very kind in advising my daughter about a fair price for a leather jacket she purchased in Florence. Anyone can recite the history of these places as they guide a group, but an excellent, lively, and knowledgable guide like Marco is what takes a tour from four stars to five. THANKS MARCO!
Our tour guide, Stefania was superb and professional. She has a sense of humour and was always caring about her team, making sure nobody went astray. Her passion on the job is very much appreciated. She is second to none!
Absolutely fantastic tour. Stepania was just the perfect tour guide. A great mix of local history and humour. We managed to see just about everything. Well organised and all very much on time. Highly rated tour and for a fraction of the cruise operators costs
Robert, our driver was very courteous and knowledgeable. This was a great excursion and we highly recommend it.
Amazing day. Our guide Stephanie was great, full of information. We could tell she loved her city. We were prompt leaving the ship and returned plenty of time to return to the ship. Would highly recommend
We were so fortunate to have Stephanie as our tour guide. She was FABULOUS!!! Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and altered the arrive time to Pisa so that we would enjoy it before the mad crowd shows up. If you have the chance, make sure you ask for Stephanie as your guide. Here is a photo showing Stephanie's humor.
Very interesting tour with a fantastic guide. Stephania was awesome!
Good itinerary and superior guide made for an outstanding tour. Stefano is what makes this a rich experience, sharing so much information about all things local and Italian. Although he was a combined driver/guide, we cant speak highly enough on his knowledge and tour guiding skills.
This tour was awesome. Samantha was amazing she was very knowledgeable of the history of each place we went. gave us two hours in Florence to be on our own to have lunch and time to do some shopping. Florence a beautiful place. This tour in particular was very special for me as my boyfriend proposed to me in Florence. Samantha was so nice she took pictures and captured the moment of the proposal at the Ponte Vecchio the Arno river in Florence.
Fantastic trip. Stephania was knowledgable, funny and extremely courteous. It was a lot to see in one day, but she made it all possible. Gave great recommendations for restaurants, shopping and made it a fantastic day of touring.
Just beautiful! Toured with Stephanie and Geno driver to Pisa and Florence. Loved this tour! Stephanie is one little ball of energy! Take this tour with DriverinRome and you won't miss anything. Stephanie knew exactly when to get to these sites before the big buses arrived loved the headsets that were handed out, that way you could hear the tour without having someone scream the instructions to all. Florence was perfect. First class operation : Highly recommend. A
Our tour guide Roberto was great, very informative, knowledgeable, experience and professional, I would recommend this tour to all my friends. We enjoyed the tour very much.
Our guide was great, very informative. We had quite a bit of free time to see Pisa and Florence. We enjoyed the tour very much. I would recommend this for anyone who is able to do quite a bit of walking.
Our tour was an excellent experience. Our driver name Davide was very knowledgeable, experience and professional. We were able to see many historical sites, which included the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
He was so mature that one of the passenger guest his age to be in the mid- 30 because of his mannerism however, he was in his mid-20. He made sure we saw all the interesting sights and allowed us time to shop on our own at the famous Square of Santa Croce in Florence.
I highly recommend this tour.
This was a fantastic day tour from Port of Livorno. Our guide was very knowledgable and was very friendly and enthusiastic. It was a trouble free pick up from the ship and we got away early enough to beat the crowds into Pisa. We were given enough free time in Pisa and Florence to have a good look around, and got back to the ship with an hour to spare. You really need a few days in Florence to do it justice, but with limited time this tour was perfect.
A wonderful excursion. Our guide Stefania was brilliant. She was so knowledgable but also entertaining and provided us with just the right amount of free time in Florence and Pisa. Many thanks to her and her Gladiator driver!

Very tiring, but the tour guide was very good. She left us free time in Pisa 90 minutes 2 hours in Florence. She was very instructive and gracious. Learned a lot of the two places we visited. Very well done. Dropped us off right by the gangway of the ship, but we picked it up by the coach parking where we had to take a coach to get there.
