Walking tours in Italy?

I will be backpacking in Rome, Florence, and Pisa this summer. What are the best walking tour operators in those cities?

I've had a lot of success with Sandeman's New Europe tips-only walking tours in the past (thanks AskMefi!), but it appears that they are not active in Italy. I'm looking for something similar: mainly popular (to make meeting people easier), high-level (but good), and skewing towards a younger demographic.

I highly recommend Rome(ing) Tours. I took two of their tours whilst in Rome and thought they were well worth the 20 bucks. The tour guides were young and described the history and buildings, etc, in a very interesting way. You can follow them on facebook! I hope you check them out.

I did a couple of Rome(ing) Tours, and enjoyed them. I did one general Rome tour and then one in the Vatican a few days later. Both really interesting, and everyone was hostel-aged (18-30) and friendly. I believe they do a walking tour that is really just a pub crawl with photo ops, too, if that sort of thing interests you.
