I wanted to give 10 but 5 was the maximum! Fluvio was absolutely amazing, he was so enthusiastic and made the tour so fun! It didn’t even feel like 5 hours of walking. It was only 4 of us and despite the torrential rain we had the best of time. He showed us amazing restaurants and pastry shops. Also guided us to the souvenir area and explained the history of Napoli perfectly. Definitely worth all the money!

Fulvio has sido un guía excepcional, nos ha mostrado la ciudad desde todos los puntos de vista, como haría a Neapolitan Neapolitan DOC.
