I wanted to give 10 but 5 was the maximum! Fluvio was absolutely amazing, he was so enthusiastic and made the tour so fun! It didn’t even feel like 5 hours of walking. It was only 4 of us and despite the torrential rain we had the best of time. He showed us amazing restaurants and pastry shops. Also guided us to the souvenir area and explained the history of Napoli perfectly. Definitely worth all the money!

Fulvio has sido un guía excepcional, nos ha mostrado la ciudad desde todos los puntos de vista, como haría a Neapolitan Neapolitan DOC. The tour has lasted more than 5 hours in las cuales hemos visitado los monumentos, los barrios and los lugares most pintorescos de la ciudad, todo ello with a profesional competencia inigualable.

Great tour. A special thanks to MARCO was engaging, available and prepared in the description of the tour and in the history of Naples with also many anecdotes and advice. We recommend it!
