Excellent tour!

The tour was incredible! Only problem was there were no COVID safety precautions in place. Wasn’t asked for green pass or equivalent. 8-9 people in a small jeep. Other than that……excellent experience.

Absolutely thrilling ride. Driver Heidi has a great passion for driving and telling us the many uses and qualities of marble. Really worthwhile. It's tricky to find the meeting place. Yes, when in doubt, keep going up!

The enormity of the quarries and the fact that this goes back 2000 years. And the fact that each massive block of marble is a treasure hunt.

The tour guide was excellent. He had great knowledge and his sense of humour made the tour even more fun and enjoyable. This was an extremely educational and worthwhile experience that should be on everyone's itinerary when visiting this region.

First of all, I contacted the website several times about the station pick-up by calling, but nobody answers me. Later, I contacted the tour group by mail. They responded that the transfer required 15 euros per person and asked us to wait at the station at 1:30. I responded to the email said we can go to mountain meeting point by ourselves , and no one answered the email. I didn't receive the email so in the morning I re-sent it to make sure they knew. After we arrived at the station, we didn't see anyone at 1.30, so we took a taxi to the meeting point on the mountain by ourselves, but no one was found at all. In the period, no one called me or received any emails. Finally I contacting the tour group in 2:15, they informed me that they cancelled because they did not see us. We were very angry. The three of us made a special trip from Florence and now we just want to return to fund.(from booking until we arrive,nobody call us , I even ask for call back before three days, but still no one contact us.)

hello . sorry to hear that. first of all nobody contacted us . We asked you 2 times if the pick up at the station was ok but you only replied the night before. We also called you twice but you did not replied. So please next time please make sure you check the email properly.

The ride up the mountain on hairpin turns in a rattling old Jeep was worth the price of admission alone!! Better than any exhibition ride!! But I f you are afraid of heights, this isn’t for you! The information provided was also very interesting. It made me understand and appreciate the works of the Various Italian sculptors much better. And it made me really appreciate the beauty of the Carrara marble in my home! One of my most favourite your of all!!

Leider weit weg von EXKLUSIV und ein Chef der sich gleich zu Beginn seine Gäste beschimpft !
Sabine_S

Wir haben diese Tour meinem marmorbegeisterten Vater zum Geburtstag geschenkt und eine exklusive, max. auf 6 Personen begrenzte, DEUTSCHsprachige Tour gebucht. Da wir 5 keine andersartigen Infos bekamen orientierten wir uns am Treffunkt der am Viator-Ausdruck angegeben war, leider nicht mit dem Abfahrtsort identisch. Nach einem Anruf beim Chef des Unternehmes wurden wir dort ungeduldig und sehr unfreundlich erwartet, obwohl wir 5 min vor Abfahrt anwesend waren !! Unfreundlich erklärte er uns er hätte versucht uns via Mail zu kontaktieren was definitiv nicht der Fall war. Er scheuchte uns in einen Jeep in dem bereits 5 Personen warteten, wir wiesen darauf hin dass wir eine DEUTSCHsprachige Tour für 5 Personen gebucht haetten. Seine pampige Erklärung-auf Englisch- war dass es diese nicht gäbe, Deutsch sein keine Weltsprache und wir wären zu faul gewesen bei ihm direkt zu buchen sondern haben das dummerweise über Viator getan sonst würssten wir das, also wären wir selbst schuld! So mit seinen zahlenden Gästen zu sprechen zeugt wohl von einer Überheblichkeit die seinesgleichen sucht. Keine Hygienemaßnahme, keine Kontrolle des grünen Passes, auf engstem Raum mit insgesamt 10 (!!!!) Personen in 1 Jeep!! Wir sind alle 5 mehrsprachig aber wollten es meinen Eltern einfach machen, nochdazu wurde diese Tour via Viator auf deutsch angeboten. Unser Guide hat die Sache gut gemacht, die Stimmung aber war dahin. Das impertinente Verhalten des Chefs ist nicht tolerierbar und höchst unprofessionell, Leistungen werden angeboten aber nicht erfüllt, das Geld dafür aber gerne angenommen. Aufgrund dieses Erlebnis mit dem Inhaber würde ich jedem von dieser Tour abraten, schade, denn unser weiblicher Guide war äusserst bemüht dieses Erlebnis doch nocht zu etwas Besonderem zu machen, so ganz nebenbei versuchte sie manche Infos und Fragen auch auf deutsch mit meinem Vater zu besprechen, ganz toll ! Danke an sie, eine angenehme Erscheinung nach diesem Versuch des Chefs uns vor allen anderen niederzumachen. Verkostung des Lardo ist ein Witz und pure Zeitverschwendung, 2 minischeibchen gehen nirgends als Verkostung durch und sind verzichtbar ! Sparen Sie sich dieses Erlebnis, buchen Sie dort wo Sie die gebuchte Leistung auch erhalten !!!!!

I am sorry you did not experience what expected. Unfortunately that day we had many overbooking and our boss was a bit overwhelmed. However nobody acted in an unpolite and arrogant way. We are professional so i want to underline that. Regarding the lardo tasting it's a "tasting" as the word indicate it 's just a way for you to savour famous lardo. It is not a lunch as you probably expected. Hope to host you again
