Day Trip from Livorno Cruise Terminal to Florence
Oct 2019
Our cruise ship docked in Livorno so, for the second time in three years, we booked the service of Tuscany by Taxi. As before, the 90 minute ride to Florence was perfect. The vehicle was a clean, well-kept, and a modern eight seat vehicle in very good condition. This service is reliable and the driver is punctual, helpful and good-humoured.
The driver, Bruno, could not have been more helpful. He dropped us off near the center of Florence and promptly returned, as arranged, late in the afternoon allowing us to have around 6 hours free time in Florence. Bruno took us also to the lookout point at Piazza Michelangelo outside of Florence for a photo opportunity, which was an extra service which we really appreciated. The price was the best amongst taxi competitors in Livorno and payment is done at the end. We can recommend this service without any reservation.

Great way to see Pisa and Florence for 1-day cruise shore excursion
Aug 2019
Our driver was waiting in the cruise port terminal with a sign with our name on it. It was booked from 8am-4:30pm. You have the choice of either Pisa or Florence first.
He dropped us off nearby the Leaning Tower and we could take photos for an hour, then go to Florence Our driver was very friendly and gave us maps for Florence. He also drove us to Piazza Michelangelo so we could take photos with a view of Florence.
He have us 3.5 hours in Florence for us to enjoy and roam around. He got us back with lots of time left. For the price of €400 for a group of 7 of us, it was a better deal than the cruise offering and we didnt have to buy a shuttle either to get picked up in Livorno city centre. The driver picked us up and dropped us off at the cruise terminal.
Highly recommended

Florence/Pisa
Nov 2017 • Friends
I had used this tour company in 2015 and decided to go with them again this time and I was extremely satisfied and happy with the decision.

We were 4 adults from Toronto, Canada and our tour driver was Stephano who was prompt and on time to meet us at the port and throughly knowledgable about the Tuscany region. It was a very enjoyable tour with Stephano as he spoke and treated us with so much respect, giving us tips and allowing us to spend plenty of time in Florence.

We first visited Pisa and then to Florence. The 8 hour private tour was worth every moment.

I would highly recommend using this tour company and if you get Stephano as your driver, that's icing on the cake!

Thanks again Stephano!

Tuscany by Taxi made a one day visit to Florence possible!
Jun 2017 • Couples
We used Tuscany by Taxi which was the perfect answer for a one day tour in Florence. We wanted to escape the cruise ship herd and this was just the ticket. They picked us up promptly at 8:15, took us to Michelangelo Square overlooking Florence for photos and then on to meet our guide (from "Joy Of Florence") right next to The Duomo. When we finished our tour, our guide coordinated with the driver for a pick up at a little cafe we visited. Using Tuscany by Taxi saved us time versus the buses which even allowed us to swing by and see the Tower of Pisa prior to returning to the ship.

Great driver

Our driver Alex was prompt, friendly and helpful. Two of our party had mobility and he was the only driver out of 7 that we had booked during our holiday who had a step to help people in and out of the vehicle. Thank you Alex for taking us to Pisa and Lucca.

Well worth the cost
May 2016 • Friends
Picked up a taxi for seven people at Livorno off a cruise ship, for €400 he would drop us off in Florence for three hours, pick us up, drive to Pisa for an hour and then drop us back at the ship (so €57 per person). As the ship was offering something similar for US$110 (and couldn't get as near to the centre of Florence) we took it. The drive was relaxing and we were dropped off directly opposite the Cathedral (Duomo) in Florence. As I have mobility issues this was great. We were picked up on time and Pisa (which we hadn't expected to be able to do) was great and we're back at the ship in good time. The driving was excellent throughout and the driver's English was very good considering it was his second language. One of the few times I have felt a tip for driving was well deserved.

Poor communication
Jun 2016 • Couples
Despite emailing to confirm they could accommodate and quoting 300 Euro for a round trip to Lucca they then failed to respond to repeated emails and when we attempted to call it was impossible to speak to them. Instead when we docked at Livorno we went to the Hertz desk who fell over themselves to help. We hired a mid sized car for 110 Euros and drove to Lucca ourselves. Fuel, tolls and parking only cost another 20 Euro's. The whole experience was effortless. Lesson learned thanks to poor comms from Tuscany by Taxi ... Go Tuscany by Rent a car instead and save yourself a fortune!

Great Choice When Your Time Is Limited
Sep 2015 • Couples
We stopped in Livorno on a cruise that my boyfriend and I took with my parents in September. I was struggling to find a tour company that could take us without charging ridiculous prices (plus we wanted a private tour), or putting us on a big bus with a bunch of other people. I think this ended up being less than half of the cost of the majority of the tour companies I emailed for prices. I just started looking up taxi companies on a whim, we had all decided to just book the "on your own" ship tour (which I think was around $110 USD, then add our poor Canadian exchange rate on top of that). I came across this company and we ended up booking it, hoping everything would work out okay since there aren't a ton of reviews. I'm glad to say that everything was perfect.

Our driver, Roberto, was waiting for us as soon as we got off the ship, we were probably within the first 10 people off the boat. He was really friendly, and his English was actually pretty good. He gave us a little info about the area on the way there in the morning, but we didn't press him for further information since we weren't sure how well he spoke English at that point - my mom kept trying to ask him random questions and he wasn't sure what she was trying to ask (stuff like "where is this lumber in the shipyard going?" Yes, my mom is THAT person on tours), even after I explained to her before the tour even started that he's not supposed to really be a guide. He didn't seem irritated with questions, though.

He dropped us off right near the center of town, and we all arranged a meetup point for later on that afternoon. We exchanged contact info too, so we could text or call him if there was an issue. He gave us a couple tips on what we should try to visit first. My parents met him on time at the end of the day, but my boyfriend and I were 10 minutes late because people in the Duomo were sooooooo slow (we had two hours to spare when we started it, just to give you frame of reference, we weren't trying to cut everything down to the last second). He didn't seem upset or anything by it after we explained what happened. On the way back to the ship, he was much more talkative, maybe even trying to practice his English a bit. He was pointing stuff out to us all the way back, and asking us lots of questions about Canada.

We were very happy with our short day using this company. I would definitely recommend them, especially if you're arriving via cruise ship and you want a more affordable, but still private, option to get to Florence and back.
