This was such great value for money. Alessandro & Riccardo took very good care of us on our trip. It was well organised and kept to a timely schedule. Alessandro (guide) is very enthusiastic and has a wealth of knowledge to share. He also makes some great jokes that keeps the information enjoyable rather than a history lesson. Could not recommend more doing this trip as you really get to see all of Tuscany. The lunch will also cater for dietary needs which is great!
Discover all the monuments of the Piazza dei Miracoli. Be dazzled by this marvelous square, which is dominated by the Cathedral. Your tour guide will take you inside the Cathedral that dominates the square: you'll admire its decorations and glaze at this example of Pisa Romanesque architecture. Your tour guide will also take you inside the Baptistery, the biggest in the Catholic world and famous for its echo. Eventually, your guide will focus on the Leaning Tower, one of the wonders of the world, that you'll have the opportunity to climb (if option with ticket selected).
This tour was perfect! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. She kept us entertained the whole time. Thank you :-)

Amazing experience! The transportation was fantastic; the bus was spotless and comfortable. Our tour guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and professional. Overall the tour was a 10+! The trip's highlight was the second tour lady at the first stop- Analissa (sorry if I misspelled your name). She was fantastic, funny and very knowledgeable! I wish we had more time with her! I suggest staying with the tour the whole time, especially at the first stop, so you can better experience the church. Great locations to visit and explore.
Olivia was an amazing tour guide and really interacted with the group to make you feel very welcomed. Siena was beautiful and the walking tour was very informative and really made me feel like I knew the city better. The lunch at the farm had an unforgettable view!
A super busy day with views and very enjoyable walks. You have time to take souvenir photos and explore each city as you wish. I recommend taking the meal included as it was a great experience and well worth it.
Really good day. Thank you Angela. We had the chance to discover Pise, Siena, San Gimignano in one day. Amazing lunch with view on the Chianti. Angela does everything for customers!
Very well organized. Professional guides. Beautiful places and worth the visit
