The guide Fabio made the tour very engaging and interesting. So that this was quite entertaining for our ten-year-old son. You can feel his heart and soul, that he enjoys this work and that he has studied the history of Verona in depth. It was the best city tour we got in Italy. And in German, the selection isn't that huge... For the fact that we were 10 participants, I felt the price was above the pain threshold, but in this case there was a decent return service.

Tour is great, top notch, really highly recommended. Plenty of information and lots of tips away from the route

Verona is an incredibly beautiful city that you should definitely visit if you are on holiday on Lake Garda.

Pleasant and quick bus ride. Very informative and nice guide. Well planned. I can recommend everyone

Very entertaining and interesting tour, with many hidden sights.
