  • Great day, well-planned. Didn't feel rushed at all.

  • It would have been a very nice trip save for one single detail. As we were ending our tour in Pisa, we headed back to our bus fully expecting we were leaving very soon for the train station to take us back to Rome. But then we ended up sitting there waiting for 3 other passengers who were no where to be found. Meanwhile, our tour guide left while talking on her phone for who knows what reason. While 6 of us who needed to catch our train grew very concerned about the long wait, it wouldve been very nice if the tour guide popped back in with explanations about the delay, and a solution to the very real possibility of us missing our train. It was only by the extreme good luck that the train was delayed by 8 minutes, the safe but quick driving of our coach driver, and us running like mad, that made it possible for us to make it on time. I hope Gartour by Destination Italia train their employees better so they can deal with this kind of situation more effectively. They should also be able to emphasize and enforce the schedule to the passengers, especially when it means other people will get seriously affected.

  • The guide seemed to be new and did not inform us what we were even seeing throughout the tour. NOT great when you have spent that much. Our visit inside the church was cut very short because of another event already in progress.

  • Trip was good, but was not fond of having 3 different tour guides. Tour got kind of confusing after a while and we actually had to go back and find an older couple who got lost trying to keep up.

  • Experience 2 Tuscan cities in one day. Once you find transportation to Rome's Termini station, you meet representatives from the company who will give you your train ticket for Trenitalia's Frecciarossa.You ride on the train without a guide. When you arrive at Santa Maria Novella station you meet 1 tour guide who takes you to the bus to Piazzale Michelangelo. The views of Florence from those heights are breathtakingly picturesque. However, the downside of this part of the tour is that the English and Spanish speaking tourists are combined and the English speakers missed information re: some sites because the tour guide was giving the tour in Spanish at the time. Once you arrive at Galleria dellAccademia, the tour is divided and you will meet another guide. You are given the coveted skip the line ticket and enter the museum where you will admire Michelangelo's Pieta and the most beautiful man in the world, David. Our tour guide, Helga, was very informative. After the museum, she guided us the Santa Maria Novella where we gasped in awe of the architecture. The price of this tour includes a preselected lunch of bruschetta, penne pesto, penne bolognaise and refreshing lemon sorbet. Later in the day, you board a coach bus to Pisa, which is about 2 hours away. There is yet another tour guide on that trip. The bus drops you off quite a distance from Miracles Square, so wear very comfortable flat shoes or sneakers. A woman on our trip had trouble walking and couldn't keep up with the group. Unfortunately, she was not told that this was a walking tour. Once the group was together, we met our last tour guide, a government appointed guide, Sara. She was friendly, witty, and knowledgeable. We had enough time to take pictures and explore the cathedral. However, we didn't have time to explore the tower or the baptistery. For entry into the Leaning Tower, you must buy a timed ticket.

  • Well staffed and logistics perfect. Greatly enjoyed.

  • I will keep it short. 6 of us on train from Rome, good start. When we arrived at Florence we joined about 60 more on full sized bus. Most tourists were English speaking but had a handful of Spanish speakers as well. Big bus, downtown Florence caused everything to run late and big group dynamics did not help.
    Weird ending on that part. We were in front of the cathedral and the guide said There is the cathedral and if you want to go in join that massive line, be back at the train station at 2:15. The restaurant is over there, here are the lunch vouchers.
    Went straight to lunch and it was so close we had to hustle to make the train...over 2 hours for service, and that was with us trying to push them.
    In Pisa, one guide handled both English and Spanish so everything went slow.
    Beware: Lots of walking at both locations and we were in the June heat.
    The tour could be great, just not with that many people.
