We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days touring with Don Saro. We went with the flow of each day and had many extras that we could not have planned but became some of our most memorable moments. The food market was a blast.

It's a private guide. He is not affiliated with a company, that's why he is very flexible about hours, times and locations. You won't be disappointed: it's a great experience.
