Unfortunately I can’t remember our guides name but she was excellent. We were encouraged to ask questions and as I knew a bit of the history of Pisa I had lots of them!! . Some friends didn’t do the guided tour and were sorry however they did get to see the Duomo properly as they attended a service. It would have been helpful to have known on tour information at booking that we would not have been able to tour the Duomo as I would have chosen a different time. As a church user I agree that tourists should not disrupt services.

Wonderful tour of Square of Miracles and a part of Pisa with Andrea

Andrea enthusiastically told us (3 of us on tour!!!) all about Pisa, it's history and the buildings on the Square of Miracles. She obviously loves Pisa and shares that with all those on her tour. I'm not sure anyone would dare to visit Florence after talking to her.. I definitely became pro-Pisa!! Got some great tips of where to eat and go out in the Pisan evening. Thank you Andrea!!

Informative and fun.

The guide, an amusing and personable young woman, was full of information and able to communicate this well. Given that our time in Pisa was limited we concluded that this had been by far the best way to get an understanding of the city. The tour is most certainly to be recommended.
