It was good. It was a small group which made it nice. I also booked a tour to Pisa , but the instructions for the meeting place were not clear and we missed the bus. It upset me because we couldn’t find the place and I lost a lot of money.

Good contact with the city.

A tour that allows you to get in touch with the city by seeing the main places of interest. The guide was very friendly and professional, and her explanations were useful, with the added difficulty that she gave the explanation twice: English and Spanish, as in our case it was a mixed group. This slows down the journey a bit. It must be clarified that the interior of any of the Churches or buildings is not accessed, but it allows to get an idea of the places and their history and then visit those that interest us the most.
