You want to see Florence and Pisa? Take the BUS! We booked the tuscanybus tour from Livorno to Florence to Pisa and back to the start right in front of our ship in the Livorno harbor, grazie mille for that! It couldn´t have been easier.

AIDA was late this morning but the guy‘s from tuscanybus already knew and so the tour started stresslessly. Our driver was Francesco, our guide for the day Alessandro. I thought we had just booked the transfer to the cityies, but it turned out to be much more. Florence is approximately 90 kilometre inland, Pisa also about 40 minutes from Livorno. We wanted to see it all and the transfer as uncomplicated as possible and yet we didn´t hav to pay the exorbitant cruise ship prices.

Tuscanybus gave us an experienced guide for our route. I think Alessandro studied history so he made an excellent guide to the Toscana and a perfect day for us. He told us everything about the harbor in Livorno and its formation; he knew everything about the famous Medici who ruled Florence for 300 years. We got a map of Florence and all the information we needed to explore the picturesque inner city. Alessandro didn´t promise too much!

On our way to Pisa when we were crossing Lucca Alessandro told us about the historical vendetta between the cities, about the towers and the actual rituals for young students in Pisa! Have you become curious? Ask Alessandro.

What else can I say?!

Well, as to the service: We weren´t just dropped at a parking lot. Alessandro took us by foot to the central spots from where we could explore the famous attractions these historical cities have to offer.

Like I said first: Take the (tuscany)bus and hopefully you also get a smart guide like Alessandro!

Very friendly and customer oriented
Dec 2019 • Couples
This is the most amazing company. The pre-Tour contact was already superfriendly (via whatsapp). We were supposed to arrive at Livorno dec 21st with the NCL Spirit. At 5pm on 20 dec captain announced Livorno was cancelled. I called Tuscanybus and they said they also found out and were reembursing all customer that had booked with them. This is soooo friendly that We will make sure we always use them when in Tuscany on future trips. Also Please NEVER use B-tickets.com to buy tickets. I emailed them about the issue, they sent an unfriendly answer (not even the word regret or sorry) 3 days later that bookings cannot be changed (we wanted to go to the museum post-Cruise instead). In Sum: THUMBS UP for Tuscanybus. we love you.

LUCCA and PISA in a day!! Great way to do it
Nov 2019
We were on a cruise ship so took the shuttle to meet this bus tour.
I booked this online and it was real easy to book. Plenty information on what to expect and where to meet.
Easy to meet a spot this tour bus.
Given a good amount of time at each stop to do by ourselves and re-meet the bus.
First Lucca where we had a good 3hrs to explore.
Then onto Pisa where the 90 mins was ample time to see this area.
Our tour guide was really helpful.
The bus was comfortable and clean.Could HIGHLY recommend to do this tour.

Convenient shore excursion
Oct 2019
We wanted to see Florence and Pisa without having to pay the exorbitant prices the cruise ship was charging for excursions. We took the shuttle from the ship to the city center, and our bus to Florence was waiting. Emma, the assistant, and George, the driver, were very helpful and informative. The bus station, which is BEHIND the train station, was not a very convenient location: there was a lot of extra walking for my 90+ year old dad, which we had not anticipated; but we did manage to see the highlights of Florence and get back to the bus on time. On the way to Pisa, Emma asked if people would like her to arrange the "tourist train" to take us from the bus parking area to the cathedral area, for a small extra fee. This was very much appreciated!!!! Emma was also very careful to warn us about pickpockets and Gypsies-always good information, even for experienced travelers. After was visited Pisa, we returned to Livorno- George was able to take us directly to the cruise port and drop passengers at 4 different ships. This was much appreciated!

Livorno to Pisa return transfer
Oct 2019
We found this transfer very easy. The bus ran on time both ways and was very well priced. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Booking online allowed you to get on the bus straight away ensuring you a seat but you could buy tickets on arrival. The shuttle from the ship stops at the same spot as the bus for Pisa leaves making it all very easy. Thanks again

Tuscanybus tour
Oct 2019
I booked the Rome Panoramic tour leaving from the port of Civitavecchia and was led to believe it would take us to the Vatican, the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain with time to explore at each stop. After reporting in for boarding at the assigned time, we spent 45 minutes waiting for the tour operators to get organized. When we finally reached Rome, the bus drove past the Colosseum long enough to take a picture and continued on. We were dropped off somewhere and then had to follow the guide through numerous streets and alleys. Although the streets are difficult to walk quickly on due to the cobblestones and traffic, our guide went very fast to make up for lost time and made no effort to keep track of the group. We were left behind numerous times when crossing streets or turning corners. I have no idea where we were or what we saw as our guide moved too quickly and was impossible to hear. We stopped for only 5 minutes at the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. This tour was basically a game of chase all the way to the Vatican. The guide was rude and made fun of us continuously. Ultimately, we were so disgusted with this tour that we didn’t even bother to use the tour we had booked the next day for Florence/Pisa and took the train on our own. I contacted Tuscanybus.com about our terrible experience and received a return email saying it was too bad. I booked this tour after reading wonderful reviews but now will be dubious to believe them in the future.

Well organised
Sep 2019
I booked this online. much cheaper than the cruise ship prices. Communication was brilliant. The meeting time was earlier than our cruise ship was due to dock but they assured me the tour would not be leaving until we arrived. We met the bus easily with their instructions. Martina was lovely and very helpful with important information. On the way back she informed us that George the driver would deliver us straight to our prospective ships to save us getting off and on the ship's shuttle bus. An added bonus. Thoroughly recommend this company.

Hassle free day trip
Sep 2019 • Couples
Booked the day trip to Florence and Pisa, as our cruise ship was docking in Livorno for a day. The ship transport was more expensive so this trip was good value. Met the Tuscanybus right beside where our shuttle bus from the ship dropped us in Livorno. Our guide Apolonia was lovely and gave advice on a route to follow, particularly in Florence. This made it easy to see as much as possible in the limited time. Arrived in Florence around 11am, left for Pisa around 2.30pm and arrived in Pisa before 4pm. Bear in mind there is a 10 minute walk from the parking to the leaning tower, but this was the case with all tour companies. There is a shuttle bus to the tower if you need it. Left Pisa at 5.10 and as our bus was full of people from the same ship we were left right back to where the ship was docked.

Thank you for your review, yes our prices are pocket friendly, especially if compared to the high prices of the official ship excursions. We make sure that things are easy for you, from the ship, to the bus and in the towns you visit. We know that your time is limited so we do our best to make sure that you get the best out of your day, our hosteses on board are there for your assistance and know very well the places you are going to visit,good to know that she was helpfull during your day. Yes in Pisa every bus stops in the same parking and if needed, just like you said, there is a shuttle bus that covers the distance. Many of our passengers are from cruise ships, just like you experienced on board, we know how important beeing back on time is for you, taking you directly to your ship is our special way to make you feel "looked after" and safe after a long day toghether. Thankyou. TuscanyBUS.com
