Ale is such a great guide. He has spent his whole life in Pisa and knows everything about it. He was nice enough to juggle his schedule to accommodate the only time we had to be in Pisa. Great recommendations for lunch too! Thanks Ale!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dean Thank you so much for your beautiful words. I had a great time with you and your family. Please give a great hug to your kids and I hope to see you again Ale

We enjoyed Ale's tour very much. So far from the many tours and guides we have had on this trip, Alessandros' tour was by far the best! He was not only knowledgeable, he was passionate as he was compassionate. Mindful always of our comfort and desiring to share his city & his country. We covered so many things in the short time we were with him. We never knew Pisa had so much to offer beyond the tower.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful message. I had a great time with you and it was truly not enough. Sharing my beautiful city with you, so enthusiastic, so curious, was something that I will save in my memories. Thank you thank you. Really hope to see you again. Ale

We had a wonderful tour with Ale! He is very knowledgeable and has great stories. You can tell he loves what he does and makes it all interesting. Our day was very well planned and he was nice and considerate. He also told us about some great restaurants in Pisa and where to find the best gelato! (He was right!) We would highly recommend taking a tour with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciaooooooo That's so kind of you! I had a wonderful day with you and you are right, I really love my job!! Ehehe... enjoy your last day here in Pisa and text me if you need anything. A great hug to both of you. Ale

We had a great day with Alessandro. He was a quick communicator and very helpful. He combined several tours into one day for us. It was a long day but we loved it all. We learned so much history on the walking tour of Volterra and really liked the Alabaster factory. The highlight was the olive oil mill with lunch. Delicious food in a gorgeous setting and we had a demonstration of how to taste olive oil. We ended the day in Pisa. So glad we did this tour and will definitely tour with Alessandro again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Ellen, thank you so much for your words! It was a wonderful day, and I hope you are all good (especially your son, how about his allergy?) I really hope to see you again! A big hug to all of you! ALe

What a wonderful day we spent with Alessandro. He truly showed us there is more to Pisa than the tower. Our group of 13 were mesmerized as he brought the history of the city to life thru his stories. His English is perfect. Hearing him describe the frescos in the cemetery were worth the cost of the tour alone. We all realized how much we would have missed without this tour. He was unbelievably knowledgeable, very accommodating and best of all just a great guy. We feel like we now have a friend in Pisa!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Heidi. I had a great time with you all and I hope you have a wonderful holiday!! Text me whenever you want to. I'm here to hold the tower!!! A great kiss to you all and I hope to see you again. A.
Our guide was born and bred in the area around which we walked. We were 3 elderly friends and Allesandro took this in his stride giving us a deeply knowledgeable but accessible feel for the history and resulting monuments and buildings of this university town.

Our guide Alessandro was waiting for us on our arrival as planned, we found him to be very personable, informative, knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. I would recommend using his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao, thank you so much for your rating. I had a lot of fun and I really hope to see you again. A big kiss to your family! Ale

Posting comments late due to a whirlwind of events after returning to the U.S. However, we could not pass up sharing our experience with fellow travelers. Allesandro made our first trip to Tuscany/Pisa so memorable and special. He is warm, caring and articulate. His deep family roots and knowledge of the history/region was amazing. Allesandro was our guide on two tours (Pisa and San Gimignano) and the best guide we had in all of Italy/France. Thanks Alessandro & ToursByLocals! Fritz & Jody

Alessandro is a great guide. He grew up in Pisa and was wonderful at giving the city life and character which is more than just a leaning tower. It was my wife and my second trip to Pisa and we saw a very different Pisa. I highly recommend Alessandro!

Was an amazing tour of Pisa . We learnt so many new things about Pisa that we never knew . We had a great tour of the whole city ending at the miracle square and climbing the tower of Pisa ! He was great with kids and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the region Will highly recommend.
Eran HammerUnited States
It's amazing how much you get to enjoy a city through the eyes of someone who truly loves it. Books and friends told me to either skip Pisa or just make it a quick stop. Instead, we spent half a day with Alex and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We were a large group of 11 with mixed adults and kids and everyone had a blast.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a real pleasure to show you my beautiful city. The words you wrote are amazing and I really thank you! Hope to see you again here in Pisa, to eat another gelato together! Thank you very much! Ale
Richard LoveUnited States
Our second tour of Volterra and the tour with Alessandro surpassed our last tour by far. He is passionate and knowledgeable and we recommend him highly
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy with it. I really hope to see you all again here. Or maybe by the Tower of Pisa. Many thanks Ale
Robyn LandowUnited States
Alessandro was absolutely amazing. As a native of Pisa, his knowledge of the history, art, and culture was quite impressive, and he is a pleasure to learn from. We only wished we could have packed him up and taken him with us on the rest of our vacation! In addition, Alessandro gave excellent directions to Pisa from our previous stop, and helped coordinate the most amazing lunch/tour at an olive oil mill on our way there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Robyn.. . Thank you so much... I really hope to see you again. Many many thanks. Ale

Alessandro is a charming tour guide with a deep knowledge of Pisa. One of the nice traits about Alessandro is his sense of humor, which we appreciated. You can do Pisa on your own, but Alessandro adds a vital dimension that you don't get if you are the average tourist -- like us. I happily put my stamp of approval on Alessandro.
Greta BernotavicieneUnited Kingdom
Our family of 5 had the most wonderful time with Alessandro in Pisa. Our 3 kids (aged 5, 9 and 12) were involved from the first second and even the youngest stayed focused for more than 3 hours. Alessandro's way of telling history through questions, solving enigmas and funny stories kept us all amused. If only history was taught like this at school!!! Having Alessandro as our guide to Pisa kikstarted our journey to Italy which we will never forget!!! Can't recommend highly enough! Thank you!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Greta, your words made me so happy. I had a real great time with your family, sharing more than a guided tour. I loved the way your kids were interested in what I was saying and our moments together. I'm so happy that you enjoyed my country and I'm laughing with you thinking about your drive experience in Naples. I really hope to see you again. I will definitely text you when I'll be in London. Thank you! Best wishes to you too! Ale
Giselle PalicasUnited States
Great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. He worked with us well and catered to our needs. I would use him again if i ever came back to Italy for another tour. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Giselle. You are so kind. I enjoyed our tour and you have a special family. Thank you so much. Alex
We had the pleasure to book a private tour with Alessandro during our last trip to Tuscany (Discovering Pisa and its treasures - in English). Absolutely fantastic. Alessandro shared with us his great knowledge and passion for the city of Pisa and unveiled some of Pisa hidden secrets. Enlightening! It is really worth it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gaelle I had so much fun with you and your great family. I really hope to see you soon here. I promise, next time we'll have lunch in one of my favourite restaurant. Thank you so much. Ciao ciao. Alessandro
