Highly recommended tour and quite enjoyable, with a great knowledge of the subject by the guide. Just one question: I initially hired a tour in Spanish and the day before they told me that there was no tour at that time, if not later, I asked the next day in English and they agreed to provide me with a text book in Spanish, which I will go did not happen. Otherwise everything very well. very comfortable transportation

A bit of concern as I had booked the tour from Italy. Before leaving I needed to contact them and I had ready answers via whatsapp. The day before the visit, they told me that perhaps we would not have had an Italian guide, as requested. Problem then solved. We have always had an interlocutor who spoke our language. I have to say that overall I had a good time.

We were lucky enough to be accompanied by the guide Francesco, who was nothing short of impeccable: prepared, empathetic, engaging and serious. Thank you for this beautiful experience in such an important place, which reminds all of us how fundamental it is never to forget the past because these mistakes should never be repeated (cited by George Santayana) We are now even more certain and we will not forget this trip either thanks to Francesco, thank you from the bottom of my heart
