The tour would start at 09:30 in Gênova but started only at 10:30 because a group was coming from Milan and nobody told me that.So beyond I needed to wait for 1 hour, I lose 1 hour of the tour in Gênova citycenter. The guide did the tour almost running. We didn't have the oportunity to get in the san Lorenzo catedral. After that the tour was more calm because we took boats to Portofino. I really want to say that the get your guide's customer service was really good trying to help the situation with the guide (that was late). Also I have to say that the guide (english speakers) was not friendly with most of the group.
