Awesome!
May 2020
Great one day trip, especially for those that want to cover several parts of Italy! We had a great guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. Would recommend this tour for young (and young at heart) travelers due to the fast pace and hustle. However, there is still plenty of time to relax and take photos (especially in gorgeous Cinque Terre). Went in 2018.

Great value and wonderful experience
We covered very much in one day. Pisa and three cities in Cinque Terre. Our guide Katerina was lovely and friendly and got us from the Florence train station and accompanied us throughout the journey giving us time to tour the places independently. We are not young people early fifties but we’re able to manage well walking and getting around-so if you are in decent shape and walk and can climb stairs etc -this trip will be a breeze-don’t get worried about the warning in the description.

Nice way to see two great sights
Dec 2019
We had a very nice time on this trip. We met early at the Florence train station and were introduced to our guide. She got us all on the train and we were off to Pisa. We stayed there for about 90 minutes which i thought was a perfect amount of time to see everything. Climbing the Tower is an experience, you dont really realize the tilt until your getting close to the top. The view from the belltower is awseome. Next we boarded another train and we were on the way to Cinque Terre. I cannot stress enough how much more pleasant it is to visit Cinque Terre with a train vs. the cliffhanging ride by van into Positano. Both areas are equally beautiful and very similiar but the ease of entry into Cinque Terre was a much nicer experience. We visited Vernazza, Manarola and Riomaggiore. All were stunning towns and im already looking at some Airbnb for a return when the weather is more pleasant and we can spend a few days. The tour states its for younger people because of the pace and amount of walking. Im a fairly fit 55 year old and had no problem with the pace or the walking so dont be scared! This was a very fun day!

Amazing trip
Jan 2020 • Friends
This was probably the best one day trip I have had. Considering the limited time we had in Italy and we wanted cover more places, we opted for this guided tour. It turned out the best decision as we couldn’t have covered it this nicely any other way. pisa and And cinque terre are two awesome places on two different spectrum of the beauty. And Emma is an amazing tour leader. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Fabulous day trip
Dec 2019 • Family
Our guide, Manalo, was the best guide. The information he provided contained interesting facts and he was not long winded. Pisa was a fun experience. Cinque Terre scenery was spectacular. Our guide directed us to all the best spots for photos. Our guide also explained Italian foods and the location of the best places to eat. This was a fabulous day trip from Florence which we recommend highly. Ask for Manalo!

This Pisa and Cinque Terre Day Trip was an incredible highlight and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Italy. The pace was perfect to be able to see all of the amazing sights on the itinerary, the amount of free time to explore was ideal, and the tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. Special thanks to Carlotta and Emma for making the trip an unforgettable experience.

Eduardo is a very friendly and thoughtful guide who explained our itinerary very clearly and gave us many handy tips. As he himself is a photographer, he taught me new photography skills when we are in Cinque Terre! Looking forward to having him to be the guide again in the future!

Fun filled trip to Pisa and Cinque Terre
We had a wonderful trip. Its a trip entirely covered by trains. The trip starts early in the morning at 7:28 from Florence SMN station and reaches Pisa by around 8:45. So you get time to visit the leaning tower and take pictures before the crowd build up as the day progresses. Then we moved to Cinque Terre and visited the 3 villages of Riomaggiore, Vernaza and Manarola. Though you may feel rushed at few instanced i am pretty sure you cannot cover so many sites on a single day at a leisurely pace. We did get enough time at all the places to roam around, do some shopping, eat and take loads of pictures.
We reached back at Florence by around 7:45pm. Overall we came back happy and satisfied.
