    Sylvia was great! She was very knowledgeable and guided us through this tour and created a wonderful experience for us.

    Our guide, Sylvia, was great. From her we learned that Pisa is so much more than The Leaning Tower!
    She kept even the attention of my 15 and 17 year old grandsons! She was born in Pisa, her English is fabulous, she was informative without being boring, and added a bit of humor as well. Highly recommend this tour! We did the morning walking tour including lunch.

    Our excellent guide made Pisa come alive. She was so knowledgeable, and passionate about the city and its history.

    Had a tough time finding our guide at first, but ultimately got together with her. She was very knowledgeable about all the venues, and she spoke very good English. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, although we thought it was somewhat overpriced despite its being classified as a private tour. Because of the heat and the exertion that would have been required on our parts, we did not take advantage of the tickets for climbing to the top of the Leaning Tower, but that availability would probably have been a drawing point to tourists who were a little less senior than we were!

    Fabulous tour with a wonderful, knowledgeable guide.

    I first off just want to say THANK YOU! Viator and their tour guides made our trip!! This tour was very informative and we loved every minute. The guide was easy to find at the designated meeting point and covered so much about the area and history of Pisa. This was our 3rd experience with Viator and we will definitely be using the service again... everywhere it is offered.
