During our time in Italy, we took five Viator tours. This was our favorite. Cortona is a lovely, little tourist town with gorgeous views of the countryside. Assisi is a must visit. Lovely town and so much history. Lunch was rushed with little time to find a spot and eat. Both the Viator day guide and the local guide were excellent. They had many challenges in Assisi, as Pope Benedict was visiting the next day and security was very tight.
Assisi is beautiful must see whilst in Italy . Although Cortona is pretty would have preferred more time in Assisi .

Excellent tour guide the weather was not very good but we made due. Assisi and Cortona were amazing.
Beautiful towns. Very interesting to learn more about St. Francis of Assisi.
Well paced tour. Highly recommended.
I recommend that anyone must visit Assisi. We had a great guiding tour. It was a pleasure to be with this tour. well educated people. Nice places and well explained.
Love visiting the medieval hill towns. The tour was instructive and delightful. My husband and I are in our late 60s and found the pace to be comfortable. We learned a lot about St Francis and St Clare, truly amazing leaders.
Recommended only for those that can walk steep inclines and steps. Not conducive to those in wheelchairs unless they are motorized.
This was a wonderful day trip. It was a small group in a van from Florence with a wonderful guide.
Cortona and Assissi are beautiful towns on the top of the hill.
Great tour guide and bus driver.
When we arrived at Assisi the expected tour guide wasn't able to take our group so a guide was organised for us after lunch. This guide had lived in Assisi for 30 years and was passionate about the town and its history. He spoke English and Spanish fluently and made the experience wonderful. I would advise anyone to visit the lovely town of Assisi. We also stopped at the very large lake on the way back.
The highlight of this tour for me was seeing the church where St. Francis ministered in the 1200's. That said, there were a lot of other beautiful sights along the way. It's important to know that both of the towns visited are hilltop towns, so not only is there a lot of walking- it's uphill. Was fine for us, but may not be ideal for someone elderly or with any sort of mobility issues. Our tour guide was nice, and the one who showed us around Assisi was knowledgeable. We enjoyed the tour overall - maybe would have liked to have more time in Cortona. It was raining the whole day, so that was a bit of a downer, but that wasn't the tour or guide's fault of course. This is a good and fairly inexpensive tour that will take you places from Florence you may not have had the opportunity to access.
