We enjoyed this tour very much. We saw parts of Genoa that we weren't expecting and were excited to see what was coming next. We had stops for food, wine, gelato, it was divine! The perfect way to start our vacation.

We had a great evening of walking round Genoa and trying the food and wine. Our guide was terrific, taking us for freshly baked focaccia, wine tastings, traditional local pasta and ice cream. Would highly recommend this tour.

Alessandro did a great job pointing out a lot of the history in the old town that is not evident to your average traveler! He was very knowledgeable and flexible. He was also great with our infant son and the food was delicious!

Alessandro was amazing!!! He open our eyes to the his city of Genoa. We will definitely recommend his tour and areas to anyome that visit this city. He made us feel welcome and comfortable. Alessandro always explained in detail every part of the city to understand the history behind certain areas we never knew existed. He set the bar for future tours in other cities we will visit.

Genova has so many wonderful hidden foodie spots which we certainly would not have found without Alessandro! We had a fabulous evening of eating local specialities and also learning some of the city's history. And of course there was lots of wine! Alessandro is very engaging and easy to talk to - it felt like we were on an evening out with an old friend showing us round their favourite spots! We left with full bellies and happy hearts and would recommend this experience as a 'must do' for any visitors to Genova.
