    Love it! With the guide from Constatino, all the tours and meeting points were well explained and went smoothly. He is very humorous and fluent in different languages. Also, the kind driver Luca’s driving was very steady, so we could rest fully on the bus. It’s a highly recommended trip!

    My fiancé and I had such a great time on this tour! It was one of the highlights of our trip. We got to see so much in one day that we couldn’t have done on our own. Our guide and driver were fantastic! The day we went it was cold and rainy on and off, but we still had a fantastic time!

    Wonderful experience, the guide, Serena, in name and in fact, accompanied us for half a day, in which she gave us a lot of freedom, but also a lot of information about the villages we were about to visit. The latter are really interesting, a photograph fails to enclose all the streets, lights and landscapes that, in my opinion, you can understand only by seeing for yourself. I recommend the experience to everyone, young and old, Italians and foreigners, tourists or culture lovers.
