Excellent tour of Ischia island - well-designed itinerary that allowed me to see so much of Ischia in just one day with the comfort of the fast transfers between destinations in an air-conditioned van driven by a skillful driver. Giuseppe was the fun and a very knowledgable guide with impeccable English, being native to Ischia, he shared tons of quite interesting and useful information and his obvious passion for the island, its beauty that of the local people! Highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Ischia island. May well do it again myself !!
We had a great tour with our guide! We spent two weeks in italy and this was the best day we had. We booked a last minute tour and all arrangements were perfect. Giuseppe, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and very informative, so passionate! Born and grown in Ischia, he knows all the legends and stories of the island. We also ate a lot! The local food is tasty, from breakfast to lunch we loved everything! We first stopped at Bar Calise to have breakfast with coffee and Sfogliatella pastry. The island is full of typical places where taste delicacies and the mortadella sandwich was so special! We learned about the culture and the food and I saw sights I'll never forget! I strongly recommend this tour!
