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.
Super terrible

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!!

Eine interessante Tour. Es könnten noch ein paar mehr Hintergrundinformationen übermittelt werden. Sehr touristisch und zeitlich durchgetaktet. Verpflegung gab es überhaupt keine.
Spektakuläre Jeepfahrten und Aussichten, Sehr gute Informationen

Spektakuläre Aussichten auf die Marmorbrüche. Die Tourleitung war kompetent und hat viele Details über den Abbau von Marmor vermittelt. Ein Punkt Abzug da es keine Möglichkeit gab, den berühmten Lardo von Colonnata zu probieren.
Die perfekte Mischung aus Abenteuer und Informationen!

Die Tour hat riesigen Spaß gemacht. Die abenteuerliche Fahrt in dem 4x4-Jeep war schon sehr toll, dazu kamen noch unzählige interessante Erklärungen rund um Carrara und das dortige Marmorvorkommen. Die Guides waren super hilfsbereit und freundlich. Ich würde jedem diese Tour empfehlen! (Allein für die super Ausblicke lohnt es sich.)

Der Besuch war wunderbar. Es lohnt allein schon das visuelle Erlebniss. Dazu gibt es kompetente Erklärungen zum Handwerk.
