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.

Fabio led us through Verona on wonderful paths and explained everything in a sensational way. We were a total of 5 people and he answered all questions perfectly. We can only highly recommend Fabio and this tour. Fabio speaks excellent German and finally knew all our names. Thank you dear Fabio!

We can only recommend the tour. Our tour guide showed us a lot that we would not have seen on our own. Eg fossils in the gewegplatten. Despite the heat of 38 degrees, the 2 hours were over in no time. He always looked at us guests and looked for shade. Just a great tour.
