We were fortunate that my wife and I were the only ones on the guided walking tour: a private tour. Our guide, Gabriella, was especially responsive to all our questions and what we wanted to see and hear. She was enthusiastic, had humor and took us into a piece of history of this wonderfully beautiful city. The contemporary was not skipped either. Time flew by and she didn't stop after an hour and a half. We had a drink together and ended the tour. In short: a fantastic tour by our guide.

The tour with Sofia was perfect. Sofia explained to us the history, the architecture and today's life in Torin very knowledgeably and with great dedication, and she also responded individually to our questions and interests. It was a very personal tour that I can recommend without reservation.

We did the tour of Turin with an exceptional guide "Andrea", informed about everything and he also managed to keep the boys attentive and involve them in the visit. I recommend this guided tour because it was a great experience.

Tour guide Manuela and driver great, food was very good and plentiful, only the view was missing. All in all a great, informative and entertaining excursion!
