Traveler Reviews

    Tour guide communicated clearly where to meet and was there to greet us from our cruise ship. He was willing to adjust the tour based on what we wanted to see, which we appreciated. Our guide was friendly but a little difficult to hear (he spoke softly and those of us in the back seat of the mini van couldn't hear much of what was said during the hour + drive). Nice vehicle and we were able to see a bit of Florence and Pisa as well as have a nice wine tasting/lunch in the Tuscany area. He helped us fit a lot in our one day at port.
