It was a nice tour to take the price is kinda steep but you get a lot of valuable information from the tour
This was a spectacular tour in the beautiful city of Verona. Our guide, Dennis, was so friendly and knowledgeable. As we walked the city, Dennis told us so much about its history that we feel we know more about it that the experienced tourist. He informed us about the stories behind the buildings and statues. So much Roman and Medieval history. We will definitely recommend Dennis to anyone wanting an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide. Thank you, Dennis!
Francesca did an outstanding job. He was funny, energetic, and charming all the while loading us with interesting facts about his wonderful city. He intro covered 2000 years of history in about 5 minutes. Seriously. The tour lasted almost 2 hours. Plenty of time was spent discussing the Capulets and Montagues. Francesca brought this city to life for my wife and me. Thank you!
Excellent all around. First, we almost missed the tour entirely because we accidentally ended up in Milano long story. The tour guide was waiting for us in Verona and was worried so she called me. When I told her that we were in Milano by mistake and were terribly sad that we were going to miss the tour, she spoke with the other tourists and they agreed to postpone the tour until later in the day and we were able to get to Verona in the afternoon and take the walking tour! The tour guide I apologize for not remembering her name she is the author of the tour book that they sell in the piazza was very gracious and I'll never forget her courtesy in rearranging the time of the tour so we could make it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed Verona. The best part of the tour is that it was a small group and the tour guide was not in a hurry. We will definitely go back some day.
Loved this tour!! Guide was do knowledgable and sweet. Had a great time walking the footsteps of Romeo and Juliet!!!
I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable. She brought to life the story of Romeo and Juliet as we walked through the streets of Verona. I highly recommend this tour particularly to those who have been touched by the incredible love story of Romeo and Juliet :
Great walking tour and would recommend for anyone visiting Verona! Our tour guide Maria was very friendly and knowledgeable and provided a lot of information on the history of Verona The only concern is that I had called to confirm the meeting place and was told in front of the Arena however that was not the meeting point and wasted some time of the tour trying to locate our tour guide otherwise this was a great tour!!
