Elizabeth SmithUnited States
Alessandra was on time and very personable. She lives in Assisi and has intimate knowledge of the city and monuments. She asked about our areas of interest and worked hard to create a tour geared to them. It rained like crazy that day, but she made sure we didn't waste time and showed us some areas of the city we would have missed otherwise. Her English is excellent and easily understandable. We would have never learned as much about Assisi had we not taken the tour. Money well spent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille, Elisabeth! What a rain... Ciao from Assisi. Alessandra
Barbara WellsUnited States
Alessandra could not have been more knowledgable and delightful, sharing insights about Assisi from both history and her personal experience. She told the story of St. Francis and Santa Chiara as if she knew them herself. She also was extremely considerate in pacing the tour to accommodate my 88-year-old mother and discussing subjects that interested our group of three. I would give her my highest recommendation. Grazie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazia, Barbara! a big hug to you both and specially to your lovely energetic Mamma :) Saluti from Assisi, Alessandra
Jeff BushmanUnited States
Our tour was great. The guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. She gave us helpful information about other things to see after the tour was over.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie, Jeff! With your new car bring back to US great memories of your trip in Italy! Ciao to both of you ��
Scott DeckerUnited States
Alessandra was excellent. She clearly has an immense love for Assisi, its history and its art. She was met us right at the agreed-upon time and was prompt on ending at 3 hours. She explained many things that we could experience on our own after our tour, also. I would recommend the company and specifically Alessandra to anyone visiting Assisi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie 1000, Scott! Have a nice further trip through Umbria ��
Thomas VoliniUnited States
Allesandra provided a fine tour experience with her combination of deep knowledge and enthusiastic rendition of the history and interpretative aspects of the art and science behind the subjects we viewed. I was impressed by the level of organization of the tour as well since twice we passed by iconic buildings or scenes in order to meet the schedule of others that would be open during limited hours and then returning to the few we passed by. She was respectful of the religious history as history as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie, Thomas! It was a pleasure to be with you. Buon proseguimento di viaggio! Alessandra
Gene MarianoUnited States
I have never seen such passion, sincerity, and dedication from a tour guide as demonstrated by Alessandra. She projected a demeanor of a person who truly cared for the group not as clients but more so as friends and human beings so deserving of her attention. Her deep knowledge of history, religion, arts, and languages is quite evident during her whole tour of Orvieto and Assisi. The details that she paid so much attention to made us feel like we were "in" a book or a documentary. She deserves a 5 plus !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Caro Gene, That's wonderful what you wrote on Umbria and on me...grazie, grazie, grazie
Sheila D.United States
Alessandra was an outstanding and engaging guide. If we ever return to Assisi and are able to visit sites outside the town walls or elsewhere, we would seek her services. She was one of the most well informed guides we have ever used. Her English is excellent. She went out of her way to make our visit to the Basilica of St. Francis accessible.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Sheila, you and your friend were great. And...you know about GIOTTO and CIMABUE! How nice for guides :))) When tip comes we'll be happy. The same if it doesn't. I do prefer lovely memories than money! Un abbraccio grande a tutte e due, Ale

Alessandra was wonderful!! She was very personable and knowledgeable and customized our tour based on our interests. She also went above and beyond our expectations by facilitating special access to a private villa, again, based on our interests. The whole tour was magical. She had a wonderful personality and we left feeling like we made a new friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie, Reggie. I wish you two to have a wobderful trip in Italy. I hope to have the chance of meeting you again. Who knows...maybe to see the Porziuncola Nuova together. ��
Chris ThompsonUnited States
Alessandra's knowledge and enthusiasm for Assisi make her one of the best guides we have had in our years of travel. Her love of history and homeland translates into a genuineness that is truly delightful. No question went unanswered as we were swept into the history, art and culture of Italy. Our thanks to Alessandro for a job well done!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille Chris!!! It was a wonderful time that one spent with you and again BUON COMPLEANNO to Rian, born on the same day of my Francis...:)
Karl ReinleinUnited States
Alessandra: she knew the subject matter very well having grown up in Assisi and overall provided the type of insight which we were looking for.

Robert FlynnUnited States
Alessandra was a wonderful guide. She was very pleasant and was obvious her passion for Assisi. We enjoyed her descriptions and explanations for all that is Assisi. I would recommend her as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille, Robert! I hope your time in Polignano has been great. Now I am on holiday me myself too, just a bit more to the North :) I hope to see you again in one of your next holidays to Italy. Un abbraccio also to your dauther, Alessandra
Julie RaffkindUnited States
I have been to Assisi 3 times . . . but it wasn't until I had Alessandra as a tour guide that I really saw and understood the town. We had a marvelous tour with sites one usually associates with Assisi, but also with seeing little hidden wonders that I would not have discovered without Alessandra.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille, Julie! It was a pleasure to be with you. I hope you will come back to visit Italy. Un abbraccio, Alessandra

Alessandra is a wonderful guide. Despite a rainy, cold day we had a great time. The tour was well-paced and Alessandra was so informative. Her knowledge of Assisi was very impressive. She is a very pleasant, friendly person and I would highly recommend her as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille, Mary! A big hug from Umbria to you both! Ale
