What people are saying about Naples

the visit began with the smile and the sympathy of the guide Angela, a true Neapolitan who made me feel all Neapolitan and the spirit of this city. Angela is a very prepared guide who knows how to communicate in a simple and effective way the history, art, culture and folklore of Naples. I had already been to Naples and participated in other tours but this is definitely the best of all. I strongly recommend it both to those who have already been to Naples and to those who come for the first time. the tour is all a surprise, it would be difficult to explain it in its entirety. you just have to live it and rely on Angela. definitely to be recommended to spend 3 hours of art, history, traditions and good humor

This class was one of the highlights of my entire trip! Francesco & Eugenia were absolutely the best host and hostesses ever! I had a class all to myself and I felt completely comfortable in their home. They accommodated my dietary needs with no problems. She made sure I had videos and pictures taken of my experiences. I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed the class and the food was the best I have ever had!

Anna was beyond amazing. She made us feel welcome in her home and we felt like family by the time we left. We had so much fun learning to make some traditional Italian dishes. They tasted great and she was the best teacher. Can’t wait to go home and cook for friends and family.

Interesting tour especially the Neapolis Sotterata, with the guide is better ...

Me and My husband had this wonderful tour . We suggest it to everybody!
