Este tour fue el "derroche" de nuestro viaje y al mismo tiempo tuvimos un gran día, fue un poco decepcionante. Teníamos un piloto fantástico para el día - Allesandro - que era útil y entretenida durante todo el día. De hecho, cuando el restaurante en Pisa a la que habitualmente lleva a la gente en esta gira fue cerrada, se encontró con un maravilloso restaurante en el campo entre Pisa y Lucca, para nosotros - que era realmente uno de los mejores momentos de nuestras vacaciones entera! Mientras que disfrutamos de ambas ciudades, la porción de Pisa fue un poco decepcionante. Lea cuidadosamente - entradas en Pisa NO están incluidos y que tendrá que esperar en las líneas (que puede ser largo) para comprar (y que no son baratos!). Nuestro guía allí (Francesca) era sólo aceptable, pasó mucho menos tiempo con nosotros lo que se esperaba / publicidad y cuando no quiero entrar en determinados edificios, que no nos ofrecen ninguna alternativa. Estás por tu cuenta en Lucca y al mismo tiempo que nos dieron un mapa, una dirección más / sugerencia hubiera sido de agradecer (quizás un paseo sugerido / lugares de interés turístico a ver?). En definitiva un buen día, pero no estoy seguro que valió la pena el costo.
Our driver was fantastic, but our Pisa guide kept trying to convince us not to climb the tower (which ended up being a great experience) and the restaurant she recommended was closed. My 9-yo kept asking questions, and she didn't seem able to handle disruptions to her script. We did love walking the walls in Lucca, which had lots of things for my active children to do along the way.
This was one of the best days of our trip! Our guide, Alexander, was the best! He gave us so much information about the area, the city and the history while we were driving. We had a private tour guide in Pisa. Before going to Lucca we stopped at a seaside town and enjoyed the day by the beach for a few minutes and that had a wonderful lunch before heading out. Great day!
This tour was the 'splurge' of our trip and while we had a great day, it was a bit disappointing. We had a fantastic driver for the day - Allesandro - who was informative and enjoyable all day. In fact, when the restaurant in Pisa to which he usually takes people on this tour was closed, he found a wonderful restaurant in the countryside between Pisa and Lucca for us - it was truly one of the highlights of our entire vacation! While we enjoyed both towns, the Pisa portion was a bit disappointing. Read carefully - tickets in Pisa are NOT included and you will need to wait on lines (which can be long) to buy them (and they are not cheap!). Our guide there (Francesca) was just o.k.; she spent much less time with us than was expected/ advertised and when we did not want to go into certain buildings, she did not offer us any alternatives. You are on your own in Lucca and while we were provided a map, more direction / suggestion would have been appreciated (perhaps a suggested walking tour / top sights to see?). All in all a good day, but not sure it was worth the cost.
