This is a great option if you want to see both Florence and Pisa in one day. There is quite a bit of walking involved which my older parents found a bit tricky at times but it was a great day and the guide we had was also very good!

Everything went great. Alessandro is a great guide who also told us a lot of interesting things about the region. The bus driver George took us to all destinations safely and on time. Highly Recommended. Thanks for the great trip!

Martina was a great guide who kept everyone together despite the 38-degree heat. The tour was fast paced but very enjoyable and we managed to see the highlights as well as travel to Pisa. Highly recommended.

Our guide was amazing. She took the time to make the tour personal and show us things only a local would know. There is a LOT of walking so be prepared.

Punctual return journey in an air-conditioned bus. Very friendly guide. Interesting information about the region on the way. Gladly again.
