Fantastic fun Tour. First time on an E scooter and wasn’t the last whilst in Pisa! Viola was a great guide providing an overview of Pisan history and answering any questions we had whilst showing us the highlights of Pisa. Would definitely recommend - time well invested to set you up to explore Pisa afterwards either on foot or by E scooter!

Renata was very professional. The tour was very interesting, not a mn overwhelming amount of information but rather interesting topics and anecdotes during the day. We had a lot of free time to discover by ourselves the cities we discovered, which is very nice. I would highly recommend!

We had the best tour guide and she’s only 20 years old. Great tour!

Very good and helpful staff. Strongly recommended.
