We only had a few hours in Assisi, our guide Franco picked us up from near the train station and gave us an informative orientation of Assisi with stops at a number of major sites. His tuk tuk was a good way to get around the hilly town and orient ourselves for further sightseeing at the conclusion of the tour.

Franco was an excellent guide, available and pleasant, he changed the program to allow us to see everything and made us visit spectacular places, unique and evocative landscapes.

We were disappointed when our bus trip with another company was cancelled. However, we had a much better experience than if we had been with a tour group.

Romaldo was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable about the city and a great photographer. I would highly recommend this tour.

Franco was awesome. He showed us every area of Assisi.
