What people are saying about Padua

On the way with Christine and Aurora in Verona, very nice and funny guides. Reliable bus driver. Group size with regard to the occupation of the bus a bit borderline due to Corona. The approach to the approach in Limone is very long at 3 hours. Stay in Verona is still sufficient with 5 hours. It was a beautiful, but also exhausting day - as is usually the case with city tours ;-) ..

Everything went great. I was very pleased with the trip. Many thanks to the guide Kristina for a detailed story about Verona and taking care of us. And also a huge thank you to the bus driver, thanks to him we returned to the hotel quickly and without traffic jams.

Really enjoyable trip. Verona is beautiful and Alex the guide was really friendly and welcoming. Trip was perhaps an hour too long for me but the heatwave in Verona probably contributed to me feeling this way! Highly recommend this trip, well worth it.

Very well organized trip with a good mix of free time and guided tour. Very nice guides. Transfer without problems. Gladly again.

Very interesting excursion from Lake Garda to Verona! We were particularly satisfied with the tour guide in Verona.
