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.

AAAAAMAZING!!!

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!!

Die an sich Tour dauerte über 2 h und war sehr interessant. ABER: Wir haben die Tour online über den Anbieter gebucht, dann gab es ein hin und her ob sie wirklich stattfinden kann. Im Endeeffekt fand die Tour in Deutsch statt in Englisch statt, und das gebuchte Essen konnte nicht stattfinden, da das Restaurant ab 15:00 Uhr geschlossen ist, die 14 Uhr Tour aber nach 16:00 Uhr endet…findet den Fehler! Wir wurden explizit zu dem Restaurant geschickt, standen dort mit acht anderen Gästen und die Tour Guides waren plötzlich nicht mehr erreichbar. Schade, das ist kein Service und Geld ohne Gegenwert. Wie wäre es mit 10 Euro Erstattung pro Person wenn das Essen ausfällt? Es haben ja schon andere geschrieben, wie ich jetzt erst sehe.
