We visited Florence and Pisa. It was an amazing trip. Everything was well organized, the bus was comfortable and the driver Stefano was careful and responsive to his tourists' needs. Finally he even drove us directly to our ship. The tour guide Alessandro was the most valuable asset of the trip. He was highly educated and knowledgeable person. His history excurses and the sense of humor made his explanations very interesting. The most impressive was the Alessandro's ability to easily switch to different languages. He was fluent in 3 other languages in addition to his Italian. His personal qualities were also on display when he went on to find lost tourists saving other tourists time. Try to book your trip when Alessandro is on duty.
