Tour guide was very knowledgeable and paced the walking tour to accommodate all our strengths and weaknesses. He did a great job inside the church and outside at the view and other historic sites.

Very nice, friendly guide with very good English. Arrived promptly at meeting point. Tour began well. Much information about the St. Patrick's well and all that area. Then we walked up the street towards the Cathedra, and some shops and architectural points of interest were pointed out along the way. At the cathedral the guide book was produced. I could have bought my own. After walking around inside, the tour was over. It was less than 2 hours. Very bad value for money and did not do justice to the beautiful city. Buy the guide book and do it yourself!

We loved our guide who gave us an informative tour and was also able to direct us to a great restaurant in this town. Our group turned out to be small so we really were able to ask questions and get special attention.

Ten stars! We learned more in 3 hours than I discerned in hours of reading. Our guide was a walking encyclopedia who also shared his observations on modern social and economic issues in a thoughtful and courteous fashion. Highly recommended for lovers of history, detail and social evolution. Well priced.

Very professional and thorough tour. Would highly recommend it. Also greatly appreciated Michele taking time to help me buy a ticket for an afternoon tour of the underground which he suggested I should do and his great ristorante recommendation, which was perfect!

This was a fantastic tour - Alessandra was so knowledgeable, and able to impart her knowledge in a way which kept our two children involved. She was very accommodating to all the changes in start time which I had requested because our holiday plans kept changing, and when she met us in Assisi she was very switched on to the hours when certain churches would be closing so that we didn't miss them. Her knowledge had great depth - there was no question she couldn't answer. Also, she told lots of interesting facts about Italy generally. Her English was excellent, and I will be recommending her to a friend who runs educational tours in Italy from Australia. Thank you Ale!
