The trip to Verona went smoothly, the guide was very nice and took good care of all participants. We were in town around 10:30 am. Before and after the city tour through the old town (optional, included in the price) you had enough free time to explore the city on your own.

Really enjoyable trip. Verona is beautiful and Alex the guide was really friendly and welcoming. Trip was perhaps an hour too long for me but the heatwave in Verona probably contributed to me feeling this way! Highly recommend this trip, well worth it.

The tour guide was perfect (Aurora). But also the tour in Verona (by Claudia) was perfect. Not to forget our bus driver (Fabio). Thanks again for the great trip.

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
