Wonderful time spent in Cinque Terre with Martina! Martina is very knowledgeable about the area and surroundings and above all, you can see the love and passion for helping others see the beauty of Italy as well! Thanks to Martina, we were able to discover the the wonderful trofie and pesto — do not miss this! =) And of course, the gelato! It's impossible

My wife and I just finished a full day private walking tour of Pisa with Martina Manfredi. She runs the tour company TuscanyatHeart.it . It was a fabulous tour and we enjoyed it greatly. We started with a tour of the Field of Miracles getting oriented to the history, architecture, and geography of Pisa. We then climbed the Leaning Tower with Martina as our guide. The tower experience was way better than I expected, and Martina’s guidance contributed greatly. Martina then led us around the core of Pisa. We stopped for some fabulous local snacks and had lunch at a humble but delicious local restaurant. Admission to the Tower of Pisa and snacks were included in the price of the tour. Martina also arranged a driver to pick us up at the country villa where we were staying. Martina is a fabulous guide with tremendous knowledge of the art, history, and culture of Pisa. The cost of the tour was reasonable given the value she provided. Her love for Pisa is obvious. She has a great sense of humor and speaks excellent English. She responded promptly to all our emails and encouraged us to customize our tour to our tastes. We chose food, history and architecture as our focus and it was perfect. Martina offers tours of other destinations including San Gimignano and Volterra. I would definitely do another tour when we return to Tuscany.

Great thanks to Martina for giving us the best tour in Pisa! Martina is a very lovely person and the tour was well organized. She gave us so much good information and historical facts during the tour, made so many beautiful pictures of our family and also gave us recommendations for a restaurant where we enjoyed a nice lunch. We would definitely recommend her!

An outstanding half day plus tour of lucca. Martina was able to customize a tour, complete with things we hadn’t thought of. She was flexible and offered a great pivot when the morning started with rain. I’ll use her again in the future!

Had a absolutely fabulous tour of Pisa with my wife Naomi. We decided on a personal tour, I was so glad we made this decision. The 1-2-1 tour with Martina was personalised to our needs with every part of the Pisa area explained. The history of the area was very intriguing with Martina’s English spoken delivery very engaging. Great value for money and a definite recommendation 🤩🤩🤩
