The experience was excellent! The only problem was meeting our driver, in fact he is not allowed to wait for you in the taxi area, as indicated in the docs, we received! He waited at the gallia hotel, so there was s bit of a hiccup to get in touch with him, as the phone was picked up by his manager, not the driver, goodness gracious!!!! In the end we found him, after couple calls. The driver himself was wonderful, so understanding and reserved, we appreciated this, indeed!!!

We had a good day. Francesca is beyond her job. She was amazing. Followed by nice lunch, we walked along lake Iseo and visited franciacorta seller was fascinating. Thank you, Francesca.

Wonderful experience. Easy going tour guide helpful and attentive.
