What people are saying about Piazza di Santa Croce

Massimo provided a wonderful tour of Pisa and Florence

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.

Excellent tour and Guide (Laura)

Laura picked us up on time in a prestige clean SUV and drove us safely all day with the most extraordinary dialogue. What she does no know about Tuscany is not worth knowing. Showed us all the usual tourist places and some not so well known. Offered water and sweets to suck on if we needed and dropped us back at the Port in time for us to sail. Highly recommend.

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!

We had many tours in Italy that included our 4 year old daughter and this was truly the best in her mind. A perfect morning for all, thank you so much
