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 ;-) ..
Even when we were over 60, the e-bike tour made us happy and showed us some additional beautiful views and points in Verona, although we already knew Verona a little. The city guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. Although our English is limited to confessions of guilt, which they understand perfectly. thank you very much
We had booked a balsamic and cheese tasting and were able to combine them, it was an absolute taste experience, the homemade bread was the absolute experience! All in all very interesting and nicely explained, a great morning
An original way to visit Verona. We really went around the city and saw the main attractions. Julià is a very professional and very smiling guide. We had a great time with him and the 3 hours passed quickly.
Very great experience, great concept, it was a lot of fun! Sara is a great guide who showed us the most beautiful places in town. Highly Recommended!
