This was a great tour. Guide was very knowledgeable of Pisa but the tour was only about buildings in manin square. The climbing of tower was best part. Worth the money spent!
Maybe the best tour we had, with a guide whose name I cannot place right now who was nothing short of stupendous. He imparted so much intrigue and history, including a long-running battle between Pisa and Florence, that we did not want it to end, but it did, with our climb to the top of the famous leaning tower.
The walking tour focused on area surrounding the tower. As entrance to tower itself was pre-booked to manage crowd control, sufficient time was given to both climb the tower and to take in the view from the top before descending. One challenge - where as most of the tour leaders had a very visible identifying symbol, our tour leaders only wore a lanyard identifying company's name making it difficult to find them in the crowd as majority of participants were arrivals from cruise ship and did not have struggle to find out where to go. For those of us who walked to meet the starting point, it was difficult to assess as area very crowded.
One of the highlights of my trip! We took the train from Florence to Pisa, which cost 10 Euros each way. Train ride was around an hour, then we walked to the city center, which took about 20 minutes. The tour was great and gave us insight into the history of Pisa. Going up in the Leaning Tower was incredible!
Guide was very informative, had a good command of English and made the tour very enjoyable.
This tour was great! Our guide was very knowledgeable and she explained things with interest. Being able to go up the tower was an amazing experience!
It was a very nice experience at Pisa,I and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our trip,the guide was very informative and friendly,it was a very pleasant environment out there,climbling the tower's 294 steps was amazing and it was a nice way to sum up the pisa experience,skipping the huge lines was doing the same was a great feature,overall a very very nice experience.
We really enjoyed our walking tour. We learned a little of the people of Pisa, who fled to Sardinia, beautiful area concentrated around the leaning tower.
Great way to get to walk up the leaning tower of pisa without waiting in line!
Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. She had lots of stories to tell us about all the buildings. We had enough time to listen and walk around before we climbed the Tower of Pisa. It was great not to have to wait in line for out tickets, but just go straight up. The group was small and we really enjoyed it.
This was an interesting tour. We found out some really interesting facts about the history of the area, which helped make the buildings come to life. Perhaps a little over-priced, however, given that the actual guided tour was less than an hour. Still, we had fun.
The tour guide was great and very informative once we caught up with her. Our voucher said a 3:30pm departure, but somehow they had it recorded as a 3:20pm departure. The good news someone was waiting for us and brought us to the group.
Nice review of Miracle Square in Pisa. I actually saw and learned more than I expected about the location. The guide was friendly and funny and knowledgeable. Although I'm not sure I would return to Pisa, this was a nice way to see it and get the most out of it for a single quick trip.

Initially could not find the guide and had to phone the office to make sure we were in the right place. The tour itself was great. We did not climb the tower as we needed to head on back to Lucca.
A very good guide and very helpful with extra information re Pisa
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided interesting insight that I think would have been missed if you walked these areas alone.
The beginning of the tour was quite disorganized with the different language guides and the headsets and the people clamoring a bit crazy. This being said, once our tour got started, we had a great guide. I think her name was Chiarra sp She was knowledgable, cheerful and mindful of the hot hot sun and kept getting our group into the shade! Would still recommend this tour highly.
