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.

Our guide Manuela brought the city to life. She was so knowledgeable, without her we would have been walking aimlessly around the city and not noticing all the little important details. It was a hot afternoon but Manuela always found the shade which helped.

Our guide was super passionate about her home town. He held our attention easily and was super interesting. The time went very quickly and we were very glad to have done the tour.

Manuela is a great guide; so much history, architecture and details that a "normal tourist" would not notice. The tour was very interesting and instructive!

Manuela led us through Verona with very good German and told many anecdotes and showed wonderful details. Can be recommended 100%
