We booked a private tour for our family of 4, with two boys ages 7 and 9. This was probably our favorite tour - trucks, huge constructions vehicles, and a chance to be in a working quarry! Umberto organized a driver, Andreo, to pick us...More
My husband and I had booked a visit to the Carrara marble quarries with Umberto. Umberto had corresponded with me for a while to ensure our visit was exactly as we wanted. Sadly, on the day our cruise ship arrived in Marina de Carrara, the...More
One of the most unexpected thrills of a recent 3-week trip to Italy was a visit to Carrara's marble quarries. A private tour in a Land Rover (not the Yuppie kind!) is the only way to see the quarries and experience the total process of...More

An absolutely mind-blowing experience. I couldn't recommend this tour enough, especially for someone who, like myself, works in the creative fields (i.e. art and sculpture). Umberto was a very friendly and extremely knowledgeable guide. He even went out of his way to meet us at...More

I am surprised to hear that. It was a wonderful tour and Umberto was very responsive. There were two email addresses that were used. I cannot include those in this reply. One was to Cinque Terre Tours and the other Cave di Marmo Carrara. I am sorry I can't provide the addresses through Tripadvisor.
