Excellent experience! Umberto is a great guide that is able to communicate his passion for the town of Carrara and for the Carrara marble industry. We were able to visit the entire supply chain, from the quarry to the artist's shops. Umberto's passion for the topic is matched only by his availability to accommodate our personal requests and preferences. For instance, my wife is American and we appreciated very much the fact that Umberto is fluent in English. We had a great time during the visit and we feel that the personal tour was well worth what we have spent. We look forward to taking another trip with Umberto.

Our guide was Umberto : very nice person. We even changed date of our visit at short notice without any problem. We visited the cave of Carrara and a sculpture workshop - private tour family of four. Umberto gives a lot of explanations, is well-prepared - very professional. The ride in his car is very comfortable and with airconditiong. He took all necessary measures re. COVID. We much appreciated this and we certainely would recommend to book with this guide !

We did the quarry tour and chose the option for interior designers and architects. Umberto showed us the line of production from start to finish. From the tops of the mountains where the marble is excavated, to a stone yard that finishes slices and polishes, to an artisan workshop making custom pieces for private clients, the entire 2.5 hours was beautiful jaw dropping and very very very informative and interesting (for those that find stones and hand made finishes and materials and finishes interesting!)

Wonderful experience. We have used Carrara marble for years and It was great to see its origins. Umberto was a great host and made the trip a fun experience.
