“You have the best tour guides I have ever experienced. Cristina, Sara & Damiano are awesome!!”

“She’s funny, willing, terrific, helpful, competent, dedicated, hard working, very very good in handling people and in working with the restaurateurs, hotel employees, etc. This is a born leader!”

“Cristina was the perfect tour manager. She was always on top of the plan, the schedule and our concerns. Very approachable, friendly, accommodating. She always told us what to expect in terms of biking difficulty, food, all of it!”  

“Her humor and wit is great as a guide and I would only hope to tour again with her in the future!”
