Our ticket said pick up time was 8.45 am from Tourist information centre in Pisa. . At 7.45 i received a phone call asking me where we were - i was actually in the shower ! Apparently the pick up time was for Florence, however it didn't say that, and my tour as above was from Pisa. After lots of to-ing and fro-ing, we arranged to meet at 8.20, to be transferred to San Gimignano to meet the rest of the tour. In all fairness the operator concerned was first class and highly apologetic, eventhough it quite clearly wasn't their error. We had a fabulous days tour, our guide was Gabriel, who was very helpful and knowledgeable. On return to Florence, it was pretty clear that there was no arrangement for our transfer back to Pisa, and eventually we were told that 8 of our party would go in one bus at 8pm, and the remaining 2 would go at 8.30 and would drop others off on the way. We didn't find this acceptable, so went back to Pisa on the train, at our own expense. Not really acceptable!
What can I say this was an excellent day , we had the most delightful guides and would highly recommend . The four places that you visit are just so lovely ,you really wouldn't have the chance to visit with a tour like this . Aver our main guide was helpful , so knowledgeable and very friendly she defiantly made this a day to remember . You get the chance to meet lots of other lovely toursists from all over the world and experience all the delights of Italy . Would highly recommend this tour company
Roman is a great driver, story teller, and foodie. This makes all the difference when sharing a whole day filled with history facts, humourous anecdotes and chatting on the road! We had a great time even when the rainy weather spoiled part of the tour. Unfortunatelly, this unusual spring sort of cheatd us with cold temperatures and rain, so context was not the best to appreciate the beauty of some of the amazing Tuscan locations along the way. Food very good at the winery.
Very good organized, wonderfull places inside Toscana! Best rating for : guides, WI-FI in the bus, panacota during lunch, assistance to find and use the shuttle to Pisa, driver of shuttle bus Negatives: Microphone in the bus was bad, it was difficult to understand the guide, have to be changed! Recommendations: taste the gelato on San Gimignano, buy souveniers from San Gimignano
Driver Roman excellent, both with commentary and driving. The guided tour in sienna was very poor. The guide walked on too quickly, often could not hear her, she often looked at the feature and talked with her back to you, no introduction was given so we did not know in advance we would have to return and pay for entry into certain places. A microphone was needed.
