Outstanding day out! You get about an hour in Pisa, which is enough time to see everything unless you want to go in the tower. Florence is magnificent. Our guide was phenomenal.

Andrew was an excellent guided. Truly amazing. Very patient when I asked questions about everything. The trip is a little long, but overall worth it. We ran into some traffic on the way back, and Andrew and the driver found an alternate route so we wouldn't have to wait on the highway. :)

Really enjoyed this one-day getaway! Small tour format was more personal. Our guide and driver were the best and the driver managed to pull off some special needs for this pair of older travelers. Long day, but so glad we did it. Wished we had more time days in Florence but no time to do so. If you are short on time, this is a good one to consider.

I enjoyed our 3 day excursion, the hotel accommodations were top shelf and the views were extraordinary. The travel guide was very knowledgeable and was in tune with the groups needs. Tour guide was able to keep the group moving along since there was a lot to see and did not allow any one person to create unnecessary delays. I have been on tours where one tourist tries to take over the group. Our guide skillfully handled the individual, addressed their needs and helped them to blend in with the group!! The rest of us truly appreciated our guides professionalism. A good time was had by all!

Our guide Andrew and driver Stephano picked us up at the apartment we were renting in Rome. This tour could have been as large as 7 people, but it was only the four of us. Very comfortable vehicle and drive to Pisa, where we had some time to see the Tower, Basilica and Baptistery on our own. From there, to Florence, with a guided skip the line trip to see the statue of David, an informative walking tour of the city, and to end off a trip to Michelangelo's terrace to have a picturesque view of the city. An excellent way to see Pisa and Florence from Rome as a home base.

We visited Florence and Pisa on a private tour which could only be described as awesome. We were picked up at the hotel on time and dropped off as promised. The guides were friendly and the kids really enjoyed the history that was shared. Definitely money well spent with this booking with viator. An incredible experience to be remembered forever.

highly recommend this trip if you have limited time on your Italy trip. The time in Pisa was rather limited as we could not go up the Tower, but the Florence tour more than made up for it. The guide was excellent and gave the best tour possible in a couple of hours. The tour kept time as promised and I think Elisa our tour guide from the company was very pleasant and accommodating.

This was an amazing tour! We will recommend it strongly! We were picked up at the hotel at the precise time and the driver Ruchano? and the guide Umberto was really kind and told us about everything we saw on the way to Pisa. At Miracle Square the guide told us about the church, the baptistry and the leaning tower. He was excellent to explain things and took really good care of usHe also took really nice photos :P . Then we went to Florence and ate really nice italian food. There the local guide Patricia met us and took us to see Florence. We saw everything from the david statue to the church santa maria del fiore. She explained everything very good and answered every question. The tour ended with an amazing view of florence at the michelangelo square. Then we drove back to rome! The guide and the driver totally used about 14 hours with us, and it was an amazing experience! Thankyou for sharing Italy with us!

Excellent tour! Andrew was our tour guide and he was great. It was a long day, but we saw a lot and never felt rushed. He recommended an excellent restaurant in Florence that was so good. We had a very comprehensive day full of history. There were 5 of us in our group which was just right.

If you have the time and want to explore outside of Rome, then this tour is a Must! We had the great opportunity to have Claudio as our expert guide and Fabricio, our driver. Claudio was delightful and very personable. Our day kicked off with a pit stop for a light breakfast and our ride to Pisa was filled with history, interesting and fun facts. Claudio was very prepared and all arrangements had been made with a great attention to detail. Claudio was with us every step of the way. He was patient to ensure we got the best family group photos and pointed out other photo opportunties we may have missed. We skipped the lines at all historic attractions and Fabricio always seemed to be at the right place, parked and ready to take us to our next stop. When we arrived in Florence, we had a quick lunch at a local restaurant which was very good. Claudio knew the staff there well and made sure they took good care of us. Following lunch, Claudio introduced us to a local guide, Giovanni, who was exceptional. We embarked on a full city walking tour and Giovanni made sure we didn't miss any highlights. We skipped the line at the Michelangelo's Museum and got to see the statue of David -- remarkable! It was a long day and we were so grateful to have experienced it with the incredible team of Claudio, Fabricio and Giovanni. Highly recommend!!

My family had an enjoyable day trip to Florence and Pisa! Our guide was Giulianna and our driver was Giuseppe. Both of them were wonderful and made our experience fantastic! We first stopped in Pisa, and Giulianna explained the history of the Miracle Square. We visited the Baptistry and Cathedral and of course, saw the Leaning Tower. Wow! Next we grabbed a quick lunch our expense in Florence before we met the local guide, Anna, there. We went straight into the Academia where we saw Michelangelo's David! Incredible! We got a brief tour in the city to show all the highlights and ended our trip up in Piazzale Michelangelo of a breathtaking view of Firenze! Giulianna was with us every step of the way and had gave us a thorough history lesson as we left Rome to Pisa and Florence and what to look out for. Worth every penny for this brief introduction to Florence! Now when we go back, we have an idea where we want to stay in Florence and what to concentrate on : If you want to get away from Rome for the day, take this tour! Thank you Giulianna and Giuseppe for making my family's trip memorable!

If you are thinking about this trip, google the trip from Rome first. It is 3.5 hours drive away. This means you will have very limited amount of time to see or do things. Claudio and Guiseppi were solid guys and very passionate about Italy. We went on a Saturday and the roads were empty. There were 6 of us in total three groups of 2 and the van was able to comfortably accommodate us all. Claudio would point on things on the way up to Pisa, but the drive is really more of a point to point transportation, so do not consider it part of the tour. Pisa is nice and there was a wedding at the chapel which added to the ambience. Florence was very large and the tour guide we had Christina was a life long residence of Florence and very passionate about her city. She was very knowledgeable and informative. When you go to the academia, you really are only going to see the Statue of David. It definitely has a WOW factor that cannot be measured, so it was worth it, The rest of Florence was wondrous and full of history. I advise watching a documentary on the Medici to gain more of an appreciation of the city. The last stop we took was to a hillside overlooking Florence and it was beautiful.

We had a great time with our travel buddies on the bus and the tour guides and drivers. Money well spent if you want a sneak peek into these cities.
