Absolutely amazing tour with Werner! He is very knowledgeable about the history and told us interesting information all along the way. His English is perfect! He went above and beyond by making us a lunch reservation in a non-touristy restaurant (which was amazing!) and called his friend who is a taxi driver to take our older group back to the top of town. He lives in Assisi so he has intimate knowledge of the city which really made it special. Thanks Werner!!

Werner was a wonderful tour guide! We booked him for two consecutive days and asked him to accommodate specific towns we chose. We all found him to be extremely knowledgeable about the area, culture and history. Would not hesitate to book Werner again for touring. Highly recommend!!

Werner was terrific. Living for many years in Assisi, he was truly a local. He had great passion for St. Francis. Was able to communicate to us the feeling of the frescoes in all the churches so we weren't just viewing a painting. It's without hesitation he recommend him to anyone looking to enhance there visit to Assisi.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!

We had a great day with Werner. His English was great and he took us to some very special places in the area. He picked us up at our hotel and spent the whole day with us. He never looked at his watch and seemed focused on making this a great tour for us. Thanks again Werner!

Werner was a fantastic guide for our day! He was extremely knowledgable and made our tour very interesting and thorough with history and stories. We were able to see some sites that were not part of the tour, as well! I would highly recommend, and would book with him again in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jodi! It was a beautiful day indeed, I enjoyed it as much as you.

Day 3 with Werner, and I'm already thinking about how I can return to Umbria! We spent a perfect Sunday exploring the cathedral in Spoleto-beautiful frescoes and learning about the history of the city with ancient walls built in the 5th century BC. Another perfect lunch with a table by the window overlooking a lake with swans, and then a drive to the Montefalco area with its beautiful scenery highlighted by a visit to Tenuta Castelbuono with its fascinating sculptures, and wine tasting with amazing views

There are not enough superlatives to describe our time with Werner! Werner was able to make our experience at the Basilica of St Francis of Assisi feel intimate-even though there were large tour groups all around us. Our trip to the cave and hermitage of St. Francis helped us to experience the calm and spirituality that defined St. Francis' life. Our day also included one of the best meals we had in Italy-dining outside on a beautiful sunny day, and tasting exquisite food and wine!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Marjorie!

We spent 3 full days with Werner, and were extremely pleased with our experience. Werner was able to explain the history in a way that was very engaging and interesting, and also gave us insight on what it is like to live in Italy. Understanding the people and culture is what makes travel so rewarding. I can still fondly remember our wonderful lunch overlooking Lake Bolsena. We're developing a list of places we'd like to spend more time, and thanks to Werner the area around Orvieto is high on our list

This tour was amazing, as was Werner. His tour of Urbino was outstanding in terms of his information about the architecture, history, and the art. One of the things I loved about him is that he would translate inscriptions. Werner is quite personable and knowledgeable. One of the best tour guides we have had and we are frequent travelers to art and history sites.

Werner was an amazing guide and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Orvieto and Civita are my favorites. He arranged when we visited each place to optimize ability to view without many crowds. He appeared quite knowledgeable about many topics and seemed quite authentic in saying when something was an opinion and factual items. We highly recommend him.

We had a good time with Werner who is a sharp, contemporary guy. Beyond a thorough knowledge of historical fact and lore, being a Belgian who has lived in Italy for 35 years, he has a unique perspective on Italy and Roman society. In other words, not just a guide but a thoughtful, opinionated man with whom we shared interesting discussions. Even better, he has excellent taste in restaurants and our stops for meals were outstanding.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, it was a pleasure to meet you!

Our tour with Werner was definitely a highlight of our time in Umbria. I thought Assisi would be a one trick pony, but Assisi was a perfect destination not just for a pilgrimage. We learned so much about St. Francis and St. Catherine. Werner was patient while we stopped to shop. His lunch recommendation was one of the best Porchetta sandwiches I have had and the store shipped 12 bottles of wine for only 90€!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael, it was a pleasure!

Our tour of Assisi was wonderful. Our guide was knowledgeable and he took us to several main sites connected with St. Francis and St. Claire. We learned a lot about these two remarkable people. We also enjoyed our drive with our guide from Rome and our return. It gave us a chance to learn more about Assisi and about Italy in general.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, it was a wonderful day indeed!

Werner was very relaxed and confident of his knowledge of the area. We feel that our visit to Assisi would not have been the same had he not been there to share his in-depth knowledge of this beautiful city. Not only is he a very seasoned tour guide, but a genuinely nice guy who was fun to have around. We hope to see him again to explore other parts of this beautiful area. Thanks Werner!!!!

Should have spent more time explaining the art, background of the cathedral

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mario, I apologize for not having spend enough time in the cathedral. My tour also includes a walk in town and other sites, such as the Etruscan underground and the church of Saint Andrew; it is a matter of priorities, I understand. If some day you return to Umbria, I'd be happy to offer a visit to the cathedral in detail. Best regards Werner
