The Wonders of Assisi

Our Guide, Merona, was very friendly, knowledgeable and personable. We felt like we learned so much and the experience was that much richer because of her knowledge. Merona loves passing on her knowledge and love of the area to visitors. Highly recommend.

Helpful and knowledgeable guide. Good tour just wish it could have been longer! Would have been happy to pay more for longer.
Wonderful Assisi with Alessandra
Bronwynne_E, May 2023
Alessandra was personable, knowledgeable, and customized everything so that I got a tour suited exactly to my level of art history knowledge. She was absolutely delightful and took care to show me all the most important things with fascinating explanations - not always easy to accomplish in a sacred setting with mandatory silence. I greatly enjoyed this information-packed tour and I highly recommend my guide!!.... Had the best cinghiale in a little bar following the tour - do try the wild boar...
Fascinating and Educational
Raeghan_P, May 2023
Andre was very knowledgeable and friendly. He has wonderful English and understood and answered all our questions. We were able to spend as much time as we wanted in the churches. His understanding of St Francis and Clare was detailed and thorough. We had a wonderful time in Assisi.
Not the tour we envisioned but memorable none the less
mary_e, Apr 2023
Our guide Mateo was met with a day of challenges. Pouring rain, thousands of visitors to Assisi during their holiday, and tour restrictions to all the churches. He still was able to convey passionately the history of Assisi and the stories of St Francis and St Clare. No one could control the circumstances of the day but a good guide is able meet the challenges.
Powerful Assisi and St Francis Tour
Lolly_T, Nov 2022
Francesca brought Assisi history and that of St Francis to life for us. Her English was very good, she happily answered our questions and we never felt rushed to move on. I would highly recommend this tour.
