“Excellent day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Touring Florence was fabulous! Our tour guide Samantha was knowledgable, informative and lovely. This was a must do and so easy. Just go on the sight and search for groups to join. This company picked us up at the port drove us to Florence and gave us great info on the area. Such a beautiful area and September was perfect weather

“Very good excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

My wife and I were very pleased with this excursion. Young lady driver/guide was very professional and knowledgeable. Plenty of free time to do our own thing in both Pisa and Florence which is the way we like it i.e. we were not blinded by an endless history lesson while standing in the hot sun.

Comfortable van, 6 other friendly fellow travelers we met through CC. Macedamia reservations/skip line tickets arranged but could opt out for extra shopping time.

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Florence Italy is a beautiful large city with many attractions. Besides Michael Angelos DAVID, there are many beautiful churches and fountains and bridges to see. The shopping is great and the merchants are friendly. It is the best place to buy leather products (just make sure they say MADE IN ITALY). Some products are made elsewhere and brought into the city as Italian made. Watch for unlicensed street vendors selling knock off items. Buying from then is usually illegal because they don't have a stall and don't pay taxes. Sometimes police crack down on them and the people who buy from them which could cost you a very expensive fine!!

When possible use your credit card to make purchases of products or food. Using a credit card which doesn't charge and exchange rate it best. Check with your credit card company before you go to see if they charge and exchange fee. If they do then get another companies charge card.

There are many good cafes throughout the city as well as ICE CREAM (GELATO) stores. Shopping for fashions is also great.

There is a river which runs through the city and several bridges which cross it. It is a great city to just walk around and people watch.

Be aware that the public toilets and the toilets in most restaurants do not have toilet seats!!

“Share A Shore Excursion - Florence - Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Fantastic sums it all up for Share a Shore Excursions. I booked three excursions with Share a Shore for Naples, Rome, and Florence on the 16th, 17th, and 18th of July. We had lined up the maximum number of people for each tour before signing up with Share a Shore Excursions. The entire process was easy, and if you had any questions the representatives of Share a Shore were quick to respond and accommodate. I want to personally thank Oana (representative) for being so professional, patient and fun to work with, and ensuring all was in order. We met Stafano right on time at the dock and quickly ventured on. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. He sized up our group and made wonderful recommendations that enhanced our tour. We got to Pisa early before the crowds and had a wonderful drive to Florence. Later in the day he made a wonderful lunch recommendation and even stopped at his favorite gelato shop. We never had to go look for any of the drivers we used during all three tours. We were back at the dock on time, tired, and filled with many wonderful memories. Later that night we spoke with other friends and guest who utilized NCL Epic tours and they all seemed to be in envy of what we just experienced, and at a cost that was much less than the ship tours. Thanks again to all the Staff at Share a Shore Excursions.

“Great highlights tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Ricardo was waiting for us on the dock when our NCL ship allowed us to disembark. He was knowledgable, personable, and entertaining. He even detoured off the itinerary to show us some sights that one of our group wanted to see.
It is a highlights tour so there is much driving and many short stops. If you only have one day I highly recommend share a shore. The price is much less than touring through the ship and it was a small group of 8.
He also recommended a great lunch spot in Florence.
