We were somewhat worried about this trip as we had always trips organised by the cruise ship. We were pleasantly reassured at the meeting point by the female agent who was excellent, we were surprised to find we were traveling by double decker especially as my wife and I have walking difficulties but we found seats downstairs. However, no designated disabled seats. The trip to Pisa considering the dreadful weather, heavy rain, was uneventful and safe. We were a little confused by the map supplied and walked an extra 500metres in heavy rain also there is a reasonable walk from the bus park, which it would be useful to know before we booked. The return was not so good we were given conflicting times to leave, printed on the leaflet it was 1pm but this was contradicted by the agent who said 1.15pm. The knock on effect was that most people arrived back at 1pm we were back by 1.10pm to find the only available seats were upstairs. There was no attempt to help us climb the stairs!
There is a lot to see in this area and we wished we had had more time. Alessandro, our guide, was very good in covering as much as possible and pointing out the places we should see. Most of the areas can only be reached on foot. Portovenere is beautiful, as well as the two towns we visited in Cinque Terre. Alessandro found us an excellent restaurant for lunch and it was a very enjoyable day.
Massimo provided a wonderful tour of Florence and Pisa. They met our cruise ship, were on time and got us to Pisa before all the cruise ship busses showed up. Next they took us to Florence were we saw all the major locations followed by a pickup and quick return to our cruise ship. I would use them again as well as possibly use them for a land tour in the future.
We are so happy that, Laura, was our tour guide today! She is very knowledgeable about the area and made sure we were comfortable and on time. We highly recommend this tour company. If you can request Laura, you will not be disappointed!
Easy. From the bus parking if you don’t want to walk the 15 minutes to the leaning tower there is a bus that will take you near it. It is only 2 euros round trip. Catch it in the same lot across from the building on the sidewalk side.
