We were booked on a private tour of Assisi, but because of a mix-up in the bookings we ended up on the group tour to Assisi, Cortona and Passignano Sul Trasimeno. This turned out to be good for us because we ended up having Julio as our tour guide. Julio was fantastic. He led a group of English and Spanish speaking tourists. He was able to switch effortlessly between languages. He was entertaining and very knowledgable and considerate of the needs to the tour group. He gave us extra free time where he could. The afternoon in Assisi was definitely the highlight: very moving and well presented. Scenery on the way was stunning. Ten out of ten Julio!

My wife and I took the private full day tour of Assisi and Cortona on Sunday March 18th. I wanted to compliment you on our driver Luca. He did such a good job and was extremely attentive to our needs all day. He was able to get us close to the important attractions armed with the information to make the most of the trip. Between the weather and the fact that it was Sunday we faced a few obstacles. Luca allowed us to see everything we were interested in and always had an umbrella at the ready. We learned a lot about the area as we drove. His suggestions helped immensely especially when it came to lunch. We had a very nice meal at Ristorante degli Orti. We never felt rushed and had a excellent experience. This is a perfect trip if you want to see beautiful hill towns and spectacular churches and only have a day. Please thank Luca again for us.
