Great day out in Pisa and Lucca
We used this tour company to visit both Pisa and Lucca. The whole day was good and the guide was excellent. He managed to speak in English, Italian and spanish throughout the whole day. The guide we were passed onto in Pisa was also excellent and very informative about the monuments and buildings. The only issue we had with the day was that we had not been informed that there is a 15-20 minute walk from the drop off in Pisa to the actual city. The whole day, including the wine tasting, was good value for money and the 2 towns are well worth a visit. We would use this tour company again.
