Reviews

Hi Tamara, We are home now so I wanted to let you know that the trip to Carrara was fantastic. Marco was waiting for us when our train arrived. He spoke wonderful English and was very personable. As his family actually owns a small quarry, he had special insights to share. We could not have been more pleased. The food at the restaurant was great and the bus stop was right there. Marco offered to pick us up if there was any problem. We would all highly recommend Marco. Thank you so much for arranging this all for us.

Tamara, good afternoon. I am so pleased that you were able to organise our family tour of the quarries with Marco. He was a fantastically well connected insightful guide, pleasant, and knowledgeable. The whole trip that day was one of lifes 'magic moments'. I would have no hesitation, when the circumstances present themselves, in recommending friends and colleagues to book Marco through you. We have many fantastic photographs of the area to look fondly back on.
