What people are saying about Cortona

This was a great day. Massimo was an incredibly good guide for the day long excursion. Provided myself and my children so much in the way of historical and current context around what we saw and experienced, advice about what to spend time on, what not to waste time on and provided us space to explore alone and encounter the unexpected. The van was incredibly comfortable. Massimo even went above and beyond and helped us with dinner plans. He treated us like friends rather than clients. When we return to Italy we will use him again!

The driver Francesco was: Punctual. Informative. Professional. Patient. Good hygiene. Good driver. Accommodating. Polite. Good English. The car was clean and free from odours.
