We enjoyed the 2 hour walk - David was extremely knowledgeable and well informed. I did the walk with my 2 children aged 10 and 13 and despite it being a very hot day they were mostly very engaged, particularly when David took us up to the top of the Victoria hotel for rooftop views of the city, including the leaning tower.

My family and I had a wonderful walk through Pisa. The guide was very insightful and knew so much about the city and it’s history. He didn’t rush the tour and we even though some people had difficulty keeping up he didn’t end the tour after 2 hours. He continued with the tour even though it ended half an hour later.

Absolutely fantastic, it was a pleasure to be on the tour and get a passionate account for the history of Pisa including its triumphs and failures over the centuries as a major Prevence of Tuscany. Very knowledgeable and its worth doing for the nuggets of information you'll receive from a Pisan resident on what to do and how to enjoy your stay including where to Eat! Although there is so many nice places in Pisa, just avoid eateries around the tower of course.
