      Good tour but please be mindful of a few things
      Breathtaking views, good food and a comfortable tour (even with a 2 year old daughter). A few things that one needs to consider: 1. We took the option of Coach till Levanto and Trains for the next three villages. I feel this just rushes things up. Instead one could just take a coach and follow it up with one of the villages at own pace. Manarola being the biggest is advisable. 2. The tour operator is merely picking and dropping between train stations There is no tour or guidance in villages. 3. You have to be very mindful of the time and find the guide on all meeting points, which can be a bit of challenge. Please ensure you save emergency contact no provided at the beginning of the tour

      Great Locations, Worst Way to Experience Them
      The trip to Pisa, San Gimignano, and Siena showed awesome parts of the Tuscan countryside, and the planned meal was excellent. Our tour guide was kind and knowledgeable. I would not recommend this to most people. Once we would arrive in a location, there was only an hour or 2 at most to explore, shop, etc. which left us feeling rushed most of the time. The worst part was the bus however. The air conditioning wasn’t working, so it was uncomfortably warm the whole time. But worse than that, the speaker the guide spoke through was painfully loud. I brought it up multiple times and they said there was no way to lower the volume (or just talk quieter?) my ears literally hurt after a day of having the speakers blasted directly in them. Hitting the “quiet” button or moving to a different part of the bus had no improvement. I don’t have sensitive ears. This was ridiculously loud. In summary - the locations are great, and this is a convenient way to see it all. The experience was disappointing and uncomfortable.

      Great tour, got to see 3 of the 5 main villages in Cinque Terre. As expected, train was very busy, but got to where we needed to go. The lunch option was good. Overall, very glad we got to see Cinque Terre as the views were amazing! Thank you Alexa for being our tour guide and Carlos as our driver.

      Tuscan country side and shops galore
      Great venues, beautiful views and wonderful shops every step along the way. The guide was well informed and helpful. The lunch and wine tasting was very good! My only negative was the upper level of the bus lacked ventilation so I would recommend trying to get a seat on the lower level but other than that I fully recommend this tour!

      Minimum time? Best way to cover a lot of Tuscany.
      Decent time provided at all stops. Great way to quickly cover Tuscan stops. Be punctual. Carry water and fill out at each stop. Wear good walking shoes and clothes which allow you to enter churches. Go to a bar/cafe at a stop to visit a toilet instead of paying for them.

      Overall a good day tour
      Visited Pisa took some good photos! Had a “light lunch” which was very yummy and was a decent size for “light” and a tasting of 4 wines. Also included a guided tour which could have been better as we didn’t see much. Overall a good experience

      Wonderful way to get a taste of Tuscany!
      We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! The guides, Maria Louisa and Alessandra were informative, friendly, and engaging with just the right amount of information. The stops were beautiful and I felt like adequate time was allotted at each. We opted not to take the guided tour at Sienna but just to walk on our own instead and I liked the slower pace that allowed. Wonderful but tiring day!

      Amazing Tuscany Experience
      An overall amazing excursion from Florence! The drive to and from the wineries is absolutely stunning. The wineries are beautiful and have great views and tours. For some feedback, the air conditioning on the bus didn’t really work so the drives were very hot. And you aren’t really given much wine, and definitely not much food.

      We saw a lot of beauty scenery and lovely old buildings. Sandro took us to San Giamannico first which was nice because it wasn’t busy. A long day but good.

    This was the largest tour group I've ever been on (double decker coach) and, as such, most of the 'tour' was about logistics (times, groups, meeting points) rather than the insightful information I've come to expect and pay for. Pisa was definitely worth visiting, and seemed a pleasant town, although there wasn't time to to explore. With hindsight, it would have been better to get a train from Florence (which appears to take about the same amount of time) and book my own timed ticket for the tower (which is only €18 online). Being given tower tickets that coincided with the sunset was a treat, there just wasn't time to savour it because we had to rush back to meet the tour. Three hours travelling on the coach, 20 minutes to walk up and down the tower and take photos. All guides were polite and friendly though.

    The whole experience was poor.
    The coach journey is almost 2 hours each way during which time i was forbidden to use the onboard toilet which was kept locked.
    The co-ordinator at the pick up point was not wearing any identifying uniform.
    No information was requested about Covid or proof of vaccination.
    The on board guide arrived late and offered little information on route.
    Upon arriving at the coach park in PISA we were speed marched to the meeting point we nearly lost the guide several times as my partner cannot speed march for medical reasons. Another couple did lose the guide completely and were furious.
    The local guide who we met in Pisa was excellent however but timings were too tight and it was all very rushed.
    You have to check all your bags and rucksacks into a cloakroom and your ticket entry time is set ,you go in at a set time as a group. There are 251 steps to the top and the tower climb is not recommended for those with Cardiovascular or muscular disorders.
    We were told we needed to be back at the meeting point for 5.15pm then it was changed to 5.00pm . In the end we made our own way back earlier as we decided not to climb the tower and could not face another speed march to return to the coach.

    Organized trip. The reason for my five star review is Maria, our local guid at the Pisa who was awesome ! Very energetic and had a great knowledge and was a good storyteller. The tour guide on the bus had poor English and talked a lot with repetition, which was a bit annoying for the length of the bus ride.

    Delightful afternoon visit to Pisa. Seeing the Leaning Tower & the cathedral on a perfect day was excellent. The bus was fine, and the guides very good. But traffic coming back was heavy an time consuming. Suspect you could take a train from Florence & cabs in Pisa for about the same price or less. And understand it’s 250 steps to the top & same coming down- not for everyone!

    An excellent trip. Just enough time to see Pisa. Vera was a knowledgeable and organized guide. Our driver was good as well. We were introduced to another guide who was an expert on the buildings and she gave us the historical background of the area. As with all these day trips it is important to get to the starting location at the recommended time or earlier since they depart on time.

    Excellent afternoon tour. Bus journey to Pisa. The trip took approx 1hr 15. Comfy ride both ways. Assia was our guide who is very knowledge and patient

    The guided tour was great by Riccardo he was funny and very informative. There was just about the right amount of time to climb the tower, visit the cathedral and grab some gelato.

    Highly recommend if in Florence and want to see the leaning tower of pisa.

    We had a family trip to the Leaning Tower of Pisa booked through CAF Tours. Our Tour was on June 25th starting at 1:30 pm from the meeting point. It was a very pleasant trip, on schedule and very well guided. The air conditioned coach was very comfortable a smooth ride to and back. The instructions to reach the meeting point and finding the Tour representative was very accurate. Special mention of the Tour Leader, Francesca was very informative, instructions were very clear and quite a leader on establishing and emphasizing - one ground rule - be on time. We were a large group and she managed it all well, smoothly transitioning over to Pisa Tour Guide and back. She is very fluent in English. Very patient and always wearing a smile. Thank you Francesca for a wonderful experience and wish you all the best.

    Amazing Experience! The half-day tour to Pisa and the leaning tower was so great to go on. I would recommend it to anyone that visits Pisa. I had no idea what to expect from the PISA tower, and this tour, and my fantastic tour guides: Marina (Tour Leader), Ricardo (Local Tour Person), and Antonio (Driver), made our day. Ricardo was a very knowledgeable, cool, fun person, and has numerous historical behind-the-scenes stories. Marina is organized, knowledgeable, sharp, polite, and has plenty of suggestions to make the tour a unique and unforgettable experience. Many thanks again, Marina and Ciaoflorence tours & travels!
