Stefano was amazing and the tour was our favorite of the trip!

Stefano contacted us before the trip to coordinate and was friendly. We asked if we could meet slightly later as our kids were tired from Rome and Stefano immediately responded and accommodated. Stefano was extremely knowledgeable about the area, buildings in Pisa, and Lucca and genuinely seemed to love the area. He helped us with tickets to Pisa and which route and how much time to take. He then took us to a leisurely day in Lucca. He knew the bike rental. shop and directed us to bike the wall which was great and easy. A highlight of the trip. He accommodated our requests to stop for liquor and wine/oil and took us to a great reserved restaurant and even recommended menu items. He gave us a map and directed us to explore at our own pace and coordinate to meet him. It was a great time and Stefano put us at east the entire time. Thank you!
