'Excellent tour'

There were five of us and we arranged a tour to Pisa and Lucca. Our guide did a wonderful job of taking us to see the main sites of both cities. We feel like we really got to see the cities and highly recommend Toscanainside for trips in Tuscany.

I travelled with Toscanainside in September and recommend them highly! I wouldn't usually think to use a tour company, preferring to find my own way. But there's certain places I wanted to use one

'very nice day tour'

The day tour Pisa and Lucca was very nice and well organized. We enjoyed it so much. Pisa is small and very beatiful while Lucca is more fun and bigger. Our Portughese speaking guide Carla was very helpful and friendly. We recommend this day tour!


Easy to reach meeting point and check in; very well organized; nice trip and itinerary; very good company (fresh water into the bus, bus replacement due tire problem whithin 20 minutes...)


inside the bus the instructions in 2 or 3 languages simultaneously were confusing; some walking/hiking under the burning sun;

'Tuscany in one day'

We were in Florence and wanted to see other Tuscan cities. I had seen some photos of Pisa but Lucca was new to me, I liked it very much. The itinerary was well organised, the guide gave us a fascinating insight, she gave us a lot of history and we were shown churches, towers and walls wandering from one side of the walled town to the other. Great value for a 8 hour tour.
