I wish we had known about Caron before we booked other tours in Rome! Caron went above and beyond to show us Florence and San Gimignano. Starting with picking us up at our hotel in Rome to setting up an impromptu lunch feast at Tenuto Torchiano Winery, Caron handled it all with ease. There was no way we could have driven or taken a train to Florence from Rome. Caron was knowledgeable, organized, and a lot of fun to be with. We made a friend and miss her very much.
