It was a fantastic experience, Guido our guide made us discover the true soul of Sorrento, its secrets, its scents and its flavors. Being a "Roman" and my German partner, we had booked the tuor in English, but in the end we did it in German and Italian, he was very kind and helpful towards us and we are really happy to be able to share this fantastic experience. Thanks a lot and see you next time.

We were lucky enough to be able to do the trek with Hugo, he is a very nice guide and showed us some hidden beautiful places in Sorrento that we would never have found on our own. Highly recommended

A perfect introduction to the sights of Sorrento. Our guide was very knowledgeable about everything and we learned a lot about Sorrento and the history of the city. Definitely recommendable!
