    Our driver took us to a place above the city of Florence where the view were marvelous. Most of the tours just stop at Pisa and The center of Florence.

    Stephano picked us up for the private tour of Pisa and Florence. He was very friendly and spoke good English. He was very knowledgeable and very informative. We went to Pisa first and saw the leaning tower. We didn't spend much time in Pisa because there is not a lot to see. On to Florence where you could easily spend some time. We saw the sights and Stephano had arranged for a great lunch for us. It was a great way to see Pisa and Florence in 9 hours. Private tour is the only way to go. You can see things that the cruise tour can't. Would definitely do it again and with Stephano.

    Everything was perfect for our trip to Florence and Pisa. Our driver Roberto met us at our ship right on time. He was so knowledgeable about the history of Italy. He drove us right up to the Leaning Tower of Pisa and gave us plenty of time to walk around and take in the grandeur of the area. He took us to St . Michael’s Church which had its own leaning tower. It was nice to see some of the hidden gems that are away from the crowds. He suggested a cute authentic Italian restaurant with great food that we loved. We had time to walk around town and do some shopping. Next onto Florence and Academia Museum with the statue of David. So many statues by the greatest artists of the past. We saw the marble mountains along the way which was amazing to see. At the end of the day he took us back to our ship right on time. This was one of our favorite days on a 3 week tour of the Mediterranean. I would highly recommend Roberto if you want a fantastic day in Italy.

    We needed a driver to get from La Spezia to Florence and Pisa and back. We had a good one. His personality helped the kilometers fly by and then he gracefully navigated through the narrow streets and by ways. Although we only had one day for this excursion, it was a full day and we saw a remarkable range of sites. When time permits, we would like to come back to get more details and history.

    Alessandro was the very best driver/guide we had in Italy. The van was impeccable. We went to Pisa and then to Florence. Alessandro was a wonderful driver - was able to get us up close to everything we wanted to see. We even went off the beaten path to see some beautiful views of Tuscany. In just one day, we managed to see all the main sites and even had time for the best pizza and gelato in Florence. Great day and a real highlight for my family. Thank you!

    We were piked up exactly as expected and driven to and from Florence and Pisa, but what was not expected was the quality of the driver. He was fantastic. He was better than any tour guide, as he explained everything. We did have to spend 5 and 1/2 hours in the car, but that is unavoidable. We booked through Viator, but I would go directly to Lucclimo , as they have the av bility to engage the necessary guide in Florence.
