Alessia was amazing to say the least I hope I got her name right. She has so much information to share and did a great job conveying it with passion and enthusiasm. We loved this tour and would do it again next time we are in Pisa . My husband climbed ten tower, I did not as I felt sick inside from the gravity pulling me. My husband said the view at top of tower is priceless.

Fun and informative

Andrea did a wonderful job talking about the Pisa and Florence feud. Setting the stage for the history of Pisa, the field of miracles, the baptistery, cathedral and the cemetery. Humor and history a great mix and all this with some small engergetic kids and a couple that was verbally arguing. Great job Andrea!!! Definitely recommend

A lovely stroll

We met our welcoming guide who was easily located at the door at the entrance to the square. We were given ear pieces to follow her commentary. The information was excellent and entertainingly put over - facts and figures with life! Very friendly, she painstakingly fielded all questions on whatever arose. The highlight was the beautiful pulpit which was a wonder to behold. There was no padding out and every minute was a vindication of the ticket price. Well done to our guide from Madrid.
