There seems to be a pattern merging with this anonymous conman.
We enquired with Maggiore Discovery in advance of our holiday due to its excellent online Tripadvisor reputation.
Emails were answered promptly by Farbri (I assume to be the owner) and we booked and paid for two excursions.
The first excursion we did enjoy, although the fact remains the guide arrived very late (message left with hotel reception to advise us of this) and dropped us back to the hotel significantly earlier than the itinerary provided at the time of booking.
The second excursion did not happen - another message left with hotel reception claiming the guide's car had ben stolen; scarcely credible and actually made us laugh, given that we assumed the real reason was the torrential rain of that morning.
An email to Maggiore Discovery requesting a rescheduled date went unanswered.
A further email requesting confirmation that a refund would be forthcoming also went unanswered.
So we too now await Paypal to close this dispute. I can only assume the reviews leading to a 5 star rating are fabricated and that Maggiore Discovery specialises in fleecing tourists.
My advice would be to book in advance and/or in resort with Tomassucci Travel, very helpful and honest.
