Fantastic tour through the historic streets of Turin. Laura, the guide, made us discover sides of the city and the Turinese that are difficult to discover independently. His passion and competence dragged us into the history of Turin and transformed a "simple" walk into a journey through history. We sincerely hope to return to Turin as soon as possible and to be able to do other tours with Laura. Truly a special guide! Highly recommended if you want to look at Turin with the eyes of a real Turinese in love with her city.

It was a real pleasure. We often visit museums and we know the difference between "do it yourself" and being guided in the visit by a competent guide. Our guide "Laura" allowed us to fully exploit the potential of this extraordinary Museum and also transmitted her enthusiasm along the entire route of the visit. In the end, the involvement in the narration was truly the most beautiful surprise. of our 2 days in Turin. Bruno and Teresa.

We had the enormous privilege of having Alessandro as a guide. He had already guided us to the Reggia di Venaria, where he was superlative. Even today he found himself very well prepared and ... we were hanging right from his lips. How many things have we learned. We highly recommend both the Reggia di Venaria and the Royal Palace. Thanks Alessandro for your availability and patience. Marina and Camilla from Switzerland
