The guy who was driving us was very good and helpful

The guy who did the guid was very clear about explaining and in speaking understandable English. But I don't understand why you keep w selling guides who speak Italian and then send guide who speaks only English. You are not correct at all. In qst vacation with my friends we bought 3 tours with guide in Italian: always arrived guide who speaks only English. You are totally incorrect.

The trip was one of the best which we had. Breathtaking architecture and views. Great guide who explained to us everything about history of monuments and answered to all our questions. Car was clean, comfortable and AC was working fine. Driver was perfect! We felt really safe during the trip and enjoined it a lot!

An excellent tour with a friendly, helpful guide!

We really enjoyed our tour with our driver cum guide; he was very friendly, caring very good English; he knew the city well and the places to go; we would give the tour group and the guide a 10 out of 10!!!

Good diver with great attitude and manners - Congratulations
