What people are saying about Turin

Amazing guide, informative & enthusiastic

Really recommend this tour. The rooms are stunning as is the art gallery. Our guide was brilliant in bringing the history alive.

A really fascinating and misterious tour of Turin underground!!

I chose to do this tour as present for my girlfriend and It's been a really great and interesting experience, where we've had the opportunity to go down till 15 metres from the ground and discover stories, secrets and facts about Turin and its history which I wasn't aware of at all previously.

Great tour. Heard many interesting stories and facts.

We (my 74 year old mum and me) had a lovely tasting tour. Monica, the guide, did explain many things both about the city history and about the Piedmonts eating habits. We visited very special locations to taste really local dishes. Very nice and enjoyable tour. Especially because we had the advantage of being the only tourists with an extra Japanese guide who wanted to experience this tour too. So we also learned some about Japanese habits. Very interesting conversations too. Susanne

Fantastic cooking experience plus delicious lunch!

We had a great time and developed some new skills in a hands-on way. The lunch that we cooked together was delicious. The hosts were very hospitable and welcoming for myself and daughter. We would be very pleased to do another class when ever we’re in Turino. Highly recommended!
