If you want to spend a lot of time on the bus, don't want to shop, or have time for pictures, this is the trip for you. I realize that there is travel time, but there is no fun time. We were hustled onto a very crowded bus and then ran to the trip bus. Once on the bus, a very bored William occasionally told us what we were passing. At the farm we were given 10 minutes to taste a little bit of their wares (think of a piece of bread cut into fourths and a medicine cup of wine-- not exactly what I call wine tasting.). Then given only 10 minutes to buy whatever we wanted. Then we were hustled into the eating area where we had tasteless pasta and stew (peas and meat--mine was either fat or bone). Then we are off to Assisi. There a guide took us through the city streets at a brisk walking pace. We were not ALLOWED to shop. Several of us really wanted to look at the handmade items, but each time anyone stopped we were yelled at. We went through the beautiful church and out again. The guide said, "Well now you have 10 minutes to shop. OK nine now.. Get going and meet at the bus." I actually got into "trouble" because I went to the restroom after buying 2 postcards. We were hot and thirsty but there was "no time." Then we went down to the beautiful Santa Maria degli Angeli. This time we were told to go through the church and be picked up on the other side. Due to some miscommunication 2 travelers went back to the drop off and had to be found. We again were told not to shop. On a dare, as we waited for our traveling companions, we went across the street and got gelato. The countryside was spectacular but the tour was rushed and stressful. This was advertised as a tour for 5 to 8 people. There were 14. I wish we had packed a lunch like the group from India did!
