Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 12 reviews

Mauro was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating. Because it was just our party, he was able to make personalized adjustments to the schedule to make the day ours (push back the start time, detour for coffee and breakfast before hitting the road, adjusting the Orvieto itinerary to include the well). He was kind and patient in every regard, and provided above and beyond assistance at multiple points throughout the day. Despite the somewhat unseasonably chill and rainy weather, these 2 cities were each beautiful and unique, and well worth the visit. Having Mauro as a facilitator and guide was a great enhancement, allowing us to focus on the experience rather than the logistics. Great day!

Wonderful experience

What a wonderful day we had. Matea was our guide. His English was excellent and his knowledge was impressive and he shared many interesting facts with us. Matea ensured all of our needs were taken care of. We were able to have a leisurely tour which suited us perfectly. The van was extremely comfortable and our group of 6 had plenty of room. We would highly recommend Get Your Guide and Matea.
