I wasn't sure what to expect to be honest but we all loved it! We are family of 6 with two teenage girls, and two boys 11 and 8 and we all loved it! We visited 3 amazing and really interesting locations and Francesca, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Would definitely recommend this your.

Hi everyone, for us this was the first experience on GetYourGuide and, if we have to be honest, it was very satisfying, we found Silvia, a very intelligent and nice girl, she spoke both Italian and English flawlessly, with her we visited the undergrounds of Cagliari, the crypt of Santa Restituta and the underground ruins of the archaeological area of Sant'Eulalia, we did it on August 31, in the basements and crypts we were not cold, I was in a t-shirt with short sleeves and short jeans! I recommend the use of comfortable shoes! Thanks again to Silvia for the great tour! I highly recommend it, it's a great experience!
