We were a family of 9 (4 children) and enjoyed the tour very much. The tour started exactly where our cruise shuttle dropped us off. We spent the right amount of time in Luca and our guide Martina was fantastic. One more hour at Piza was more than enough. Martina was really great and attentive. She provided some great background and explanations and the maps we received were very clear. Highly recommend

Meets right where cruise shuttle drops off . Easy to find guides etc. super friendly staff. Long walk from bus in pisa if you have any mobility issues.

It was great, but in the name of the activity prior to departure from Porto, but the meeting point does not record the same information.

The experiences and the tour in Lucca were very impressive. The stay in Pisa was also great.

Great time management and Martina was a. Excellent guide.
