On October 26, 2017 we visit Livorno and Mauro was our Tour Guide. We were three couples. We arrived in the NCL - Epic ship and when we disembarked, he was already at the port waiting for us. WITHOUT A DOUBT I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mauro to be your tour guide. He is very knowledgeable of Florence and the entire area outside of Florence. He prepared a customized tour for us based on our requests and it superseded our expectations. He is very pleasant, flexible and always made sure that we were enjoying our tour
