What people are saying about Liguria

Punctual and reliable. Very friendly staff. Although we only booked the trip to Florence and Pisa and didn't expect any information, the nice tour guide on the bus gave us some information in English about the area and history. Interesting excursion and much cheaper than what AIDA offers.

It was a trip on my own. we got a good city map, so everything was easy to find. Since time was a bit short in Pisa, a shuttle was organized at short notice for only 2 €. Excellent! We saw what was important to us and reached our ship on time!
