Don't book tickets for the tower
Mattis_D
, Aug 2022
We booked this bus transfer to the tower of Pisa with tickets to access the tower. Don't book tickets for the tower through the operator!!! The tower tickets have a timeslot, we missed our timeslot because the bus was late and they will not give a refund for this. The local tour operator representative was quite rude when I called to complain about this. She said that the bus was late because the cruise ship was late, and that we should have still had plenty of time to make our timeslot. We booked this bus for 1:40pm. The cruise ship was supposed to arrive at 09:30am, passengers were able to leave the ship at 09:40am, so the ship was maximum 10 minutes late. We arrived early for our bus at which time they told us our bus was not going to depart until 2:15pm. The bus did not pick us up until 2:30pm. We were dropped off at a parking lot at 3:15pm. We then walked 15 minutes to the tower, then we had to wait in line to drop off our back packs at a luggage drop off, because you're not allowed to take bags on the tower, then we lined up for the tower. When we arrived at the tower entrance it was 4:05pm, our ticket time was 3:45pm and the tower crew told us that our ticket expired at 4:00pm. The tour operator did not inform us that the ticket was going to expire at 4:00pm, if they did we could have at least tried to skip the line at the tower. The fact that the tour operator was not apologetic about this at all and basically said it was totally our fault, did not help.

great value alternative to the cruise ship trip

excellent value, yes you need to get the shuttle bus to the town centre to connect with this bus at 5 euro each return but that's easy to find as its just off the cruise ship, the bus that took us from the town centre to Pisa was modern and had air conditioning, using this alternative saved me over £250 for the three of us ,based on the cruise ship alternative

Bus held back due to ship arriving late in to Livorno. Helpful staff and really straightforward transfer to Pisa. Free time in Pisa more than enough to visit key attractions.

Nobody wants to ride on...

Nobody wants to ride on the top level of the bus. Everyone fills up the bottom level and then people who probably need to sit on the lower level are forced to the top level.

Hi, we are trying to understand your experience better. We do not have the possibility to manage the seating preferences of our passengers at the boarding time, but in case of need related to medical conditions we invite our customers to immediately report to the staff on site in order to be able to meet individual needs. Was this the problem you encountered?

Worst experience

Would not recommend. Take another excursion with a different company. Lack of communication, lack of instruction, surprise charges, was my experience and I didn't even get to go on this excursión because of those reasons. First I had asked several questions before the date of my tour the first question, Do you pick up at Port?, was answered with cancel your excursión. Now that didn't sit well with me but everyone else in my group didn't want to cancel because I saw that they did pick up at Port. I had to look again and throughly read how they picked up at the Cruise Port because I saw that they did before the buying excursión and they mention to take a shuttle bus but didn't mention that there was a extra cost associated that is not included in the tickets. Then I asked about the shuttle bus and if it had capability for a wheelchair, no response, my other questions were answered with silence as well. I went to the cruise port shuttle bus pick up line and the lady was charging everyone an extra 5 euros per person on a credit card machine but she only accepted Euros and there's no where in the port you can exchange. I had a good sized group and we didn't have enough euros for everyone so we couldn't take the excursión. None of the Taxi's that were there that did accept cards wanted to take my group to the bus pick up. Taxis there only want to take you straight to the towers or another excursion. We ended up paying again for a taxi to take us to the towers and lost our money for this tour.

Hi, we are sorry that the information you collected did not allow you to make our excursion to Pisa from Livorno. On our official website it is clearly stated that the pick up service with the shuttle bus is not included in the tour, and therefore it is not included in the cost of the service offered. We hope your next visit to Italy will be more enjoyable and we recommend that you consult our website for precise information.

Best option to just see the leaning tower
Jim_H
, Jun 2022
As stated, this is just transport to/from Pisa. Nice bus and friendly assistants to help you. Once you get off the ship, you will take the port shuttle to center city (that's the only stop it makes and runs continuously while the ship is in port). The fare in June 2022 was 5 euro for the round trip. The port shuttle drops you off at the exact same spot your bus to pisa will leave. It sounds like a lot or logistics, but actually very easy and low stress.

Pre-booked Bus trip to Pisa
bigmikeOz
, Oct 2019
This tour is simply a booking for a return bus ticket to the Pisa site. Its pricing is OK. We booked this for when our cruise ship visited the Livorno port. Two important things to understand with this bus transfer: - if connecting via a cruise ship, be aware that the area where you catch the bus is nowhere near the Livorno port, despite the instructions you receive when you book saying "just outside the port". You can't walk there (too far) however there is a shuttle bus close by the ship exit for 5 euro that will take you there as its first stop which is about a 10 min ride. Factor that in to make sure you don't miss the actual Pisa bus as we nearly did. We had to ask the shuttle bus contact to call ahead so the Pisa bus could wait for us. - when you arrive at Pisa, the buses don't actually stop very near the site. It is approx a 20 minute flat walk from where the bus drops you and the Pisa site. Again you need to factor in this walk when returning to the bus for pickup back to the port. Other than that, this is a bus transfer service and served its purpose to get to Pisa.

We got what the ship offered for 1/3 the price. Drop off and meeting point required a bit of a confusing walk or a 2 eu each way trolly shuttle.

Provided basic service but sufficient enough to enjoy. Pisa is a small town. The route took us to Pisa and then back to Livorno where shopping and dining options are abound.

Lots of Confusion
cruisinbob1
, Sep 2019
This was a simple transfer, however, at the start the transfer was supposed to be at 1:40, yet the bus was delayed and so the transfer was at 2:00.. this made our time at "Pisa" shorter. A text was sent to my phone however, I did have internet so I did not know but I found out when other passengers started showing up later. The drop off point is about a 15 minute walk to the plaza, our driver said he would pick us up at 4:45 at the exact location where the drop off was, however, me and the other passengers where at the location at the exact time yet NO bus showed up, in the end another bus with cruise ship passengers( I was on a cruise ship so where the other customers) just came by and picked us up. I have no idea what would have happened if the bus did not show up. Very confusing, would not do it again.- review by cruisinbob

The bus ride to Pisa was good. This is just a bus transfer and there is about a 15 minute walk to the tower/miracle square. This is good for anyone who wants a quick excursion from a cruise. Keep in mind that if you do come from the cruise terminal you will have to pay 5 euros to get a shuttle to the place where this bus picks you up. There are employees at the stop to help you. Only bad thing was that my family and I almost missed the bus because we got lost on the way back. There is also not too much time. Don't spend all your time trying to take the stereotypical pictures with the leaning tower, because there are a lot of cute shops to walk around to. Worth the money, rather than paying for a long excursion from the cruise lines!

It doesn’t say anywhere that you have a 20-25 minute walk AFTER they drop you off so we were late getting to our tour. Then there’s so much to see you don’t have time. I would have stayed and paid for visiting the cemetery and baptistery.

Cruise ship shuttle took us directly...
Vicky B
, Apr 2018
Cruise ship shuttle took us directly to where the coach to Pisa goes from, so that was great. There were staff there to make sure we got on the right coach. Once in Pisa it was about a 10 minute walk to reach Pisa all on flat ground. Fascinating to see the Tower for real! Wifi wasn't working on the coach, but they said they were trying to get that issue fixed. Before we left I checked out where we were getting the coach to and from on google street view - so I felt more confident. EXCELLENT VALUE!!
