    On April 3 I attempted to...
    Elizabeth_L, Apr 2024
    On April 3 I attempted to book a hike for May 3 online. When I discovered the mistake the tour operator said he could accommodate my group on May 3 but he wanted additional money, 95 dollars per person instead of the advertised prize of approximately 60 dollars. He continued to insist that that is what the charge was. I am devastated as I lost the money for my family members as well as myself and I am still trying to find a hike
    Best Tour of Our Entire Trip! Don't miss it!

    Our guide was full of knowledge, and sooo welcoming. He went ABOVE and BEYOND from our first contact until we left at the end of the day. It was the best tour of our trip. We left feeling like part of the family. I am a travel agent and will be sending all my clients his way. We were blessed to have met him and had the perfect day.

    Paolo took our family on a beautiful scenic hike to the castle. He explained the history of the area and fed us a tasty Italian meal at his home! We stayed in the most cosy apartment with a gorgeous view in a mid evil village. Such an original experience for our family!

    Best experience in Italy
    Sarah_L, Mar 2022
    This was our best experience in Italy! We chose to stay in the village the night before our hike, adding to the overall experience. Our guide and host, Paolo, was so kind, helpful and very informative. We met some wonderful people, as well. I love to meet people from countries I visit, as I can learn about their culture. I highly recommend it! My family, including teen daughters, also agreed it was the best part of our trip.
