What people are saying about Turin

Fantastic tour around Turin at night visiting places we would have walked straight past. Carolina is a local and took us around Turin like we were old friends. She was full of relaxed information about the history, food and wine of the area. My daughter and I had a great experience tasting traditional Piedmontese fare and were appreciative of the other recommendations for places to go to eat and drink for the remainder of our stay in Turin.

The experience was excellent. A real cooking class with an Italian family. Nothing like a normal class in a place, but rather cooking in the host house. The hosts were incredible nice and despite the fact this is not their regular work, they seemed well prepared and gave us a wonderful time together.

A brilliant, lovely, and charming tour of a beautiful and delicious city. Our guide Carolina was a delight to spend the afternoon with, and organized the tour to perfection. You'll leave craving everything you tasted. I only wish I could wrap the whole city up in my suitcase and take it home.

From beginning to end, I had a wonderful, truly authentic experience. Perfectly organized, everyone I encountered was kind and dedicated. Not only do I highly recommend it, I can't wait to do it again. A memorable day.

Interessante scoperta del mondo Martini, esperienza da consigliare a tutti, appassionati e non! Mi raccomando di terminare la visita con un cocktail e giretto nello shop
