Thanks to Marco, I had a tour of Alba that was the perfect balance of history and food. Marco was extremely informative and interesting - he seemed to know just how many church visits were appropriate, and in some of them we only stopped to look at a particular highlight. The pace was very relaxed and he made sure I was refreshed on the walk. I was able to sample foods that as a solo tourist I would never have known about. Simply had a great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Angela! Hope to see you soon here or in Australia. By the way, the Vegemite...not my favorite :-) Marco.
