Mario was fantastic!, he was very knowlegable about the local area and the cuisine and he seemed to know every person in the city. The local merchants were very friendly and accomodating, I only wish I had a bigger stomach, we were offered so much food that by the end we could only sample very small amounts of all the delicious offerings. Thanks again Mario and all the locals for an excellent evening.

The Veiled Christ is a sculpture that fills with emotion. The historic center of Naples is truly fascinating. The very nice guide was able to entertain us for three hours making us know every corner of the historic center enriching the tour with funny anecdotes and stories!

Very interesting tour through the streets of Naples. The tour ended with a visit to the very exciting San Severo chapel. The star of the afternoon, however, was the guide Alessandra who, with intelligence and irony, made us enter the popular culture of Naples.

Great way to learn about the history of Naples during a leisurely walk through the old city.

Great tour! Combination of delicious food and a super-enthusiastic guide.
