What people are saying about Verona
Excellent guide. Small group of mixed nationalities but Alberto our guide made sure everyone was included and understood. Great way to see major sites and discover places you may not have found wandering around by yourself.
This was a great tour! Francesco was great and gave us interesting information about the city and surrounding area. He would often check to make sure everyone was keeping up, safe, etc. I would recommend this tour to anyone
All the hot spots in 3 hours with a local guide. Can recommend it! Some car drivers greets the group with a welcoming honk and hand gesture but this is just it is in Italian cities.
Great trip if you love wine. It was a really fun trip and I would highly recommend it.
Very nice tour to get to know Verona. Could be a little longer and more detailed.
