Excellent guide Ganpiero in Assisi. Same as driver and car guide

only criticism of a bug when booking online with GYG, the voucher counted 1 person instead of 2 for the same price 496th indicated on the GYG platform! And the name had changed ... Cold sweats! It was necessary to cancel the first reservation thanks to the effective intervention of GYG the correspondent in France; all this adjustment took 2 hours of time. But all is well that ends well and we will only keep the good memories of our three guides with a special mention to Ganpiero the erudite and affable archaeologist who explained Assisi to us.

Privet Assissi and Orvietto tour was better then I expected

This trip was beyond my expectation. Antuanett was an excelent tour guide. It was only 3 of us, we had extremely friendly atmosphere, Assissi and Orvietto was stunning. We also enjoyed a nice lunch with umbria wine and truffles as well stopped for fenomenal wine testing. I would absolutely recommend this tour
