Fabio showed us the city in a great way, explained everything and answered every question. I'm in a wheelchair and he also checked that I always had a lowered curb as much as possible. He made sure that when we stopped, everyone was in the shade in this heat. He told us the highlights and gave us hints what we could do afterwards. knew our names until the end, just great. Thanks Fabio keep it up.

Ended up with the only one on the day, felt like a VIP lols. Walked around Verona and saw major sites, as well as less well known places. Verona is beautiful! And the guide definitely made a difference in a hot summer day. He also provided extra tips on things to do/ look out for for my own afterwards.

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.

The ride was wonderful and so was our guide - Frank! We stopped midway for a coffee/beer which was perfect timing. It was so nice to learn about the city and it’s history. The bike ride was easy. I highly recommend this tour.

All goals were easy to walk, even at 38 degrees in Verona
