Marco was fantastico -- can't imagine a better guide for Perugia! He is passionate about his town and is knowledgeable about history, art and culture -- a real intellectual! He is informative, entertaining and charming -- a natural educator. His kindness in treating us to a marzipan treat was especially nice. He is well known in town and we joked that he is perhaps the "mayor of Perugia"! Marco will remain one of our fondest memories/experiences of Perugia. Grazie!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rose and Joe, thanks for your wonderful words. It was such a pleasure to meet with you and show to such educated and interested people like you this gorgeous city. I really wish you all the best in life and a great time here in Umbria. with kindest regards Marco

Marco, Gracia mille for the great tour you gave us in Perugia! We so enjoyed every moment. Marco is so knowledgeable about the history of Perugia in particular and Umbria in general.He was well prepared and provided great details as we moved along the streets taking in the sights, architecture, people, and food. The time was well spent with Marco; we learned so much. He is professional and his humor was a bonus. We could not have appreciated this city as much as we did without Marco's in depth tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Deborah, It was a pleasure to spend time with you all and to show you my beloved Perugia and speack with educated and curious people like you about my great homeland Umbria. Hope to see you again Best regards Marco

What an amazing tour!!! Perugia itself is a beautiful city but Marco really brought it to life for the eight of us. He was an excellent tour guide and we all loved this tour (and Marco). Marco was extremely information and highly entertaining. We could not have asked for a better introduction to Perugia. Next time that we are in Perugia ( and we will definitely return) we will take another tour with Marco. Highly recommended. I would give Marco more than five stars if that were possible.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot to all of you. Thanks for coming to Perugia and giving me the chance of spending some time in this incredible city of mine with such a lovely group. Wish you all the best and looking forward to your next visit Marco

We toured Perugia with Marco in October and Marco is an extraordinary guide. His knowledge of Perugia is unsurpassed and he brings a level of enthusiasm that was beyond my expectations. He is knowledgeable, kind and appreciative of the history of this great city. We could not have asked for a better experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your great comment. dear Rob, I hope that you two had a wonderful time in the rest of the week and Umbria will remain in your hearts. In the hope to see you again in this wonderful land of mine wish you all the best Marco

Marco was fabulous! This was our second tour with him (after Assisi) and he continued to be fully engaged in making sure that we thoroughly enjoyed our time together. He is very passionate about the history of Italy, and the importance of the Umbrian region in particular. He tells it in a way that is both entertaining and memorable. If you are unable to book him for your tour you will get less than the full story! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again dear Neil, you know how much I love this city and I'm glad I could pass it over to you. Best regards Marco

Marco was waiting for us at the railway station as arranged and began our tour right away. His English is excellent. He tailored the tour to suit our group of four friends. He is so knowledgeable not only about Perugia, but about Its significance within Tuscany and Europe. We only had our tour booked for 3.5 hours but wished we could have stayed with him all day. There was still so much to see and seeing it through his eyes was the way to go. He was by far the best guide we had on our trip of Italy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I can only say THANKS A LOT for suh good comment, I'm very pleased to hear your nice words and of course it was a pleasure to meet with you all. In the hope to meet you again and wishing you all the best thanks again Marco

We have visited Perugia a few times before but never with guide. We picked Marco based on prior reviews. What a wonderful experience!!! We spent the 1/2 day tour discovering the treasures and rich history of Perugia and just scratched the surface. Marco was charming, a wonderful speaker and above all passionate about his home city, Perugia. We would will not hesitate to use him for future tours of Perugia, Orvieto or Assisi

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rick, Thanks for your comment, I hope this will find both of you well and to see you again as you are both Umbria's lovers. best regards marco
