Information provided by Orvietoviva was very informative about recommendations on places to eat as well as great... information on places to visit and tours available.My only disappointment was with the map supplied as while the information was there the print and map were so small due to it being all on one page that it was virtually impossible to read. My suggestion would be to put the map on one page and the symbol designation on a second page or divide the information / map onto two pages.read more

We took the 4 hour "First Time in Orvieto" Tour in June 2019. Our guide (David) was very friendly and knowledgeable. We... learned about the history or the area in general as well as historical details of the history of Orvieto itself. I definitely recommend the tour - it provides a great base of understanding and follow up locations to visit. Well done and well worth it. Thank you!read more

David Tordi is simply the BEST tour guide I have ever used! Not just because of his vast knowledge of Italian history... and art, but because he is passionate about his country, and his love and enthusiasm is both delightful and contagious! Add his warm and friendly personality and you have found a star!read more

David Tordi was the guide for my tour group in October 2018. I can’t say enough good things about him. He was extremely... knowledgeable of Italian history, culture, art and architecture, food, politics and much more. He shared his knowledge with us as we drove around the country and walked through villages. He was extremely organized in planning each activity and even the departure plans for 25 group members. He shared his love of country, food, wine, and history enthusiastically. He planned many fantastic Italian meals for us that included multiple regional courses and wine. He is also a musician and played for us on two occasions which are two of my fondest memories of the trip. This was my first tour, but many in our group had experienced multiple tours with other guides and said that he is the best they ever had. He set a high bar for my future tour travel. If you are considering him for either a guide or a musical performance do not hesitate to hire him.read more
