Alex was our driver. He was on time polite and friendly. His tour of Florence began with a scenic overview of the city. I wish we had him for longer. Emma was our museum guide. Her knowledge of art was amazing! She was friendly, polite and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend her and this tour. I wish we had more time.
As a family of 6 4 adults and 2 children we spend a great day with our informative driver/guide exploring the cities of Florence and Pisa. Our private tour gave us a wonderful opportunity to see and do everything we wanted to do in Florence and also visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa before returning to your ship at the end of the day. A great tour, well worth the money.
Two vans met our families on time at the port. They were very friendly and very safe about their driving. Our tour guide in Florence was extremely knowledgeable! She had such passion for the history and art of the area. We learned a lot!
Our private Luigi was waiting for us at when we got off the ship. He was great...first we went to see the leaning tower of pisa it was amazing to think it is still there. Then we went to Florence and the views for the Piazzale Micheangelo was amazing. Reminded me of the views of the movie Inferno. After went to Florence itself and walked around the beautiful city Luigi provided us with information on shops and places to eat loved the place.
What a wonderful experience with someone who really cares about the area in which they live and work. Our driver was so knowledgeable and was so concerned about us enjoying the areas. Highly recommend.
Alex was our driver and guide. He took us to pisa first. I think everyone should see it. Then we continued to drive through the beautiful countryside of tuscany on our way to Florence. We stopped up above Florence for a beautiful view of the city. then down into the city center to see the new and old bridges. He recommended a great place for lunch Momma Mia's! the food was incredible and Gelato of course for dessert. Florence was one of our favorite places on our 11 day cruise. We will be back someday.
We were met at our ship by Francisco who picked us up in a beautiful black Mercedes with bottled water provided. He spoke great English and was extremely personable! In Florence, he connected with our personal guide who was also excellent. Francisco went out of his way to take us to sights not normally on a regular tour. He even took us to a U.S. World War II cemetery when my husband told him he was retired military. When he drove us back to our ship, he gave us a lovely bottle of Italian wine. We cannot recommend Francisco and our Florence tour highly enough!
Our Driver met us and took us to some amazing places and told us everything we needed to know about the area.
I would highly recommend this trip, and will be using Viator again on future trips.
we were on a cruise and this trip saved us a lot of money compared to booking through the ship

We had Alessio as our driver and guide. It was just the 4 of us. Felt like royalty. He filled us in on the way to Florence on what we would see - how we would experience Accedemia and the city tour. He had cold water for us and introduced us to our city guide. He rearranged the Pisa portion to avoid the crowds and was extremely helpful in finding a place to eat in Florence. Mamma Mia's was the best. Yum. While it was crowded in the city we never felt rushed to hurry to the next site. Michelangelo's David was amazing and we learned so much about him. Highlight of our trip. Pisa was busy but not crazy - we got there well after lunch and the crowds were much less.
This was an amazing excursion! Our driver picked us up on time right outside of our ship. He talked to us about Tuscany and all the beauty it has to offer. He was in constant communication with the guide. We decided to add the guided tour to Accademia Gallery and it was so worth it! We skipped the line and went straight to see the status of David... Impressive! we walked around Florence and Caterina, our guide was fantastic! she recommended places to eat and have gelato. Our driver then picked us up at a specific place and took us to Pisa. Really, really nice experience!
This is the best tour we have ever been on! Our tour guide Francesco picked us up just as the cruise ship arrived, we beat the crowds into Pisa and Florence; amazing pictures. He was very resourceful as we also wanted to go leather shopping and wine tasting, he set it all up on the spot.
Highly recommended, the driver speaks fluent English, was very accommondative, we had a good time.
We had a wonderful day visiting the Tower of Pisa and Florence, what a beautiful city. As this was a shore excursion from the ship we were nervous about timing. We had a great driver for the day and he got us back to the ship with time to spare.
Leeza our tour guide and Francesco our driver were excellent. They were both extremely knowledgeable about Florence!
Thank you to Alessandro for a lovely tour of Tuscany including Pisa and Fiorenze. He recommended a great little place to eat and was waiting for us when we were ready to go. He even made a stop for me at a local shop so I could buy EVOO to bring home! Five star all the way! Thank you Alessandro!
great trip! Driver was nice and very helpful also the guide in Florence
Our family was met on time at the port by Luigi who politely introduced himself. His English was great, along with his professional and knowledgeable demeanor. We discussed sites we would like to see and relied heavily on Luigi's input. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!! I am a very particular person with high expectations and I could not recommend a better way to see Pisa and Florence. Luigi provided a first class experience beyond words. Lifetime memories for the family and thank you Luigi for everything.
Our driver David and our Florence guide forgot her name! was simply amazing!! We decided to make it a private tour because of so many things to see and we wanted to move at our pace fast instead of waiting on 30 people.
Bottom line, we caught Pisa before the crowd arrived awesome!, and our guide did an outstanding job in explaining the Academia, Michaelangelo and David. Absolutely no regrets!!
This was a great tour in order to get a feel for Florence. It's a big city with lots to do and our driver Leonardo helped us out with getting the most out of the tour. He also assisted us with our tickets to see the David statute. Vehicle was clean, reliable and comfortable. I wish he would have recommended a place for us to eat but he did drop us in the heart of Florence as we requested.
Perfect - just what we wanted. Pablo was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. Made the car ride fun. The guide in Florence was wonderful. So much to see and learn in Florence. Absolutely loved it.
Leonardo was very friendly and professional. He gave us detailed introduction of Pisa and Florence, and Tuscany's history. He even served us champaign at the end of the tour coke for kids! We totally enjoyed!
Our trip from the Princess Cruise Port was great from the start with our lovely driver Julian there ready and waiting. He took us firstly to Pisa and we missed all the people and even got to see around Pisa itself which was lovely. Then we went to Florence and enjoyed the views from the top looking back over the city. Then some shopping and back to the Cruise. Julian was so knowledgeable and would request time again if we were there. Highly recommend and would give him 10 out of 10. Thanks Sarndra and Pete New Zealand
We had a great day in Florence and Pisa. Leonardo was so kind and knowledgable. We enjoyed the guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery as well and learned much more than if we'd done it ourselves. It would have been nice to have more specifics about the schedule in advance so we could have reserved tickets to the duomo and tower of Pisa as both were too busy when we got there. But, that was a minor issue. This was a nice day.
