Elena was outstanding in every way. She arranged this custom tour based on our request, and was extremely knowledgeable at all the locations. She was also very well informed about the classical music interests that we had. In some places the tour provided by the facility was only in Italian but Elena provided an equal or better running commentary in English. Her command of English was excellent. Her help in choosing a place to eat in Busseto and in finding our way to each place was invaluable.
