Some of our guests reviews…

I just wanted to tell you now, while the memory is still fresh, that the entire family enjoyed our Orvieto day more than anything else we’ve done on this trip so far. Elisabetta was wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable, and a delight to be with all day. The trip to the farm we now consider to have been a rare privilege, one that we will recommend to all our friends. The family was without pretension, welcoming, proud of their heritage, and more “real” than we could have hoped for. They and their cheeses will remain in memory for years to come. Elizabeth is now a big part of our understanding and love for Italy and Umbria. Best regards, J. Cook

We had a wonderful time with our guide, Elisabetta, yesterday. We also appreciate your prompt and thorough responses to our emails so that we could plan our schedule without stress! Elisabetta was very charming and knowledgeable – I EVEN survived the well! If we get back to Orvieto, we will contact you! We highly recommend your tour service. Best regards, C. Jones

Hello! We are still getting very positive feedback from the students who were on the trip. Most of them shared they didn’t want to leave. Orvieto is absolutely beautiful and very charming. I hope to visit again soon. S. Elmessaoudi

Thank you so much for the tour with my group on Wednesday – they were really very happy with the time that they spent with you. I am sure that there will be many more as Orvieto is a favourite destination being only one hour away. All the best! G. Landor

Our family of five (three adults and two seniors) enjoyed a trip to Italy and Spain in September 2013, and our day in Orvieto was without doubt one of the highlights of the two weeks. David Tordi of Orvieto Viva arranged a personalized day for us that simply could not be beat. We have traveled as a family for years, and have visited many of the more commonly visited tourist sites, but this was a stand-out day in all our memories. Orvieto itself is worth visiting just to walk around and shop a bit, but our day included much, much more. We joined a small group for a walk through two of the caves, we had a guided tour of the Cathedral, we had simply the most fantastic meal ever, we visited a farm in Umbria where cheese was produced in the traditional way, followed by a relaxing time under the trees tasting the cheese produced there, watching the sheep, and we visited the Bartolomei Olive Oil museum and mill for even more tasty treats. We couldn’t have asked for a bigger contrast to fighting large crowds throughout Rome in the days preceding this one.  CamdenJim – Birmingham, Alabama

I thought the tour was eccellente! Thanks for a wonderful time in Orvieto! L. & L. Dean

We are remiss in not thanking you for the wonderful tour which was the highlight of our vacation. I will recommend you on Trip Advisor as well as make personal referrals. We hope to return to Umbria in the future for a longer stay as your insights made us want to know more. Best Regards. J. Varrone

Thank you VERY MUCH for a great tour.  We loved it!  Thanks for the list of restaurants, too! All the best! We will highly recommend you to anyone we know who comes to Orvieto! Ciao. L. McAfee

We just wanted to let you know what a great time we had driving around the countryside. You gave us a great narrative and we learned a lot about the history of the region, too. Plus it was fun to interact with the locals in unexpected ways such as asking for directions. We are still talking about the fabulous lunch we had at Ristorante La Perla (in Montecchio)! I have a blog and have been writing about our travels and I recently posted about our trip to Orvieto. Thought you might be interested in reading it so here is the link to my blog http://gotta-travel-now.com/touring-around-umbria/
Thanks again for the tour and hopefully we’ll come back to Orvieto some day. Ciao! S. Randolph

Thank you again for such a wonderful day in Orvieto. Having spent a few days walking around, listening to your talk really brought to our attention and appreciation what a treasure Orvieto is. What made this especially compelling is that you are a native son and your pride is so great. M. & D. Fields

Thanks so much for the tour, it was great to attend and your walk through the town was great. I will certainly keep you and your company in mind for the future. E. Minchilli

 We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the tours with you and Elisabetta on Oct 14th.   Your love for Orvieto is obvious and you made it come alive for us.  Elisabetta’s knowledge was so impressive and she was a most gracious guide.

We had a delicious lunch at Posso del Cava restaurant one day.  We went to Cantina Forese twice and really enjoyed lunch while people watching in the piazza.  Please let Alessandro know how much we enjoyed his food and wine!
Ciao! Carol and Michele
