I give 4 stars because they got the wrong bus when the guides directed us, they sent us to Pompei instead of Assisi! It was when the guide explained the route that we realized that they had put us on the wrong list! They wanted us to go to Pompei but we refused, they offered us a refund or another date but we cannot because we are leaving in 2 days. Fortunately, the drivers agreed to transfer us from the bus. we had a bad start to the day but we loved our day in Assisi. the free time is too short (30 minutes) but otherwise everything was fine, we ate well our guide Alexander was super friendly and he spoke to us in French (as well as the guide in Assisi). If it weren't for their list error, I would have given 5 stars. So a word of advice, confirm the destination of your bus before boarding so that the same mishap does not happen to you

So cute

The tour is fine although very fair. There was more time to admire the Basilica of San Francisco in all its splendor. The restaurant very good. The guides were fine. Stefano and Stefano very friendly.
