We had a lot of fun in Pisa, it was very interesting and educational. She is an amazing tour guide. I myself am very interested in the old architects and story’s and without her I wouldn’t have known how to link it to each other.

This might be the best guided tour we've ever taken. Martina makes it look so easy--she guided us through the Pisa square at a lovely pace, teaching us what felt like insider knowledge of the buildings, the art, the history, and ended the tour almost exactly where we began. She is clearly a passionate expert at her practice and we left feeling like we had made a new life-long friend. If you are interested in a tour in Pisa, don't look anywhere else.

My husband and I enjoyed a great tour in Pisa (our first trip post coronavirus lockdown). We felt like we had the city to ourselves. We got to see the main sights, but also enjoyed learning a bit about the local culture and cuisine. Martina was a great guide. Very professional in light of the new health requirements.

Martina was an excellent tour guide! The booking process was extremely professional. She was responsive with emails and all of my questions. We had to make a last minute change to the time and she was extremely accommodating. Our kids, ages 8 and 11, were completely engaged and Martina did a great job answering all of their questions. When it was time to take pictures with the leaning tower, Martina took us to the right spots and helped us with our poses to get the perfect shots! It was a blast. Highly recommend!

After reading about Martina in Rick Steve's Guidebook as well as her reviews on Trip Advisor, I booked a private 3 hour tour with her of Pisa. I was staying in Lucca where my husband was working at his business there. At my request, Martina arranged for a driver for my transportation to Pisa and back. This made the tour seamless and easy for me. Martina is an amazing tour guide! As an art historian, Martina's knowledge of art history and culture was mesmerizing as we visited the Cathedral, Baptistery, Campusato and climbed the Bell Tower. There were no delays or waiting in lines as Martina skillfully coordinated times to visit the Baptistery (to hear the singer demonstrate the acoustics) and navigated the lines at the Bell Tower (and helped others do so as well) This allowed me to experience so much in 3 hours! Martina is very engaging and explains the history and culture beautifully and enthusiastically. She is very relatable and I also enjoyed our conversations regarding what it is like to be a woman in each of our countries, as well as the politics of our countries. I am not especially found of heights, but happily was able to climb the Bell Tower with Martina setting the pace as we carried on interesting conversations on our way to the top. I was so glad that with Martina's help I was able to do this. Martina also set a great foundation for the rest of my trip to Florence, Sorrento and Rome. What I learned from Martina that day really enhanced my visits to these places. Even though I did not do a tour of Lucca with Martina, she provided me with many wonderful recommendations on where to eat and shop in Lucca. I especially enjoyed visiting the Tomasi Loom Works and Zazzi Dellamano shops as well as sampling the chocolate at Cioccolato Cavalsani. Her recommendations helped to make my Lucca visit more enjoyable. I can't wait to return to Tuscany and will definitely seek Martina out for another tour.
