What people are saying about Campania

This experience was a highlight of our trip! It was wonderful to learn how to cook in our instructor’s home from recipes passed down from her grandmother and mother. We had a little trouble finding the location (we were driving a rented car and aren’t accustomed to the narrow Italian roads). I later saw that they had sent me an email in the afternoon with meeting instructions, so I would recommend checking your email closer to the time of the event and also requesting to be picked up instead of driving. Once we were able to start the class, we completely forget the stress of being lost and it made it all worth it!

We were a small group of 5, which was ideal for walking around the centre. The Guide Davide was able to involve us with kindness and enthusiasm. His deep knowledge of the city, combined with a considerable preparation, has allowed us to get to know even lesser-known aspects of Naples. Beautiful afternoon! Thanks David!

The blue grotto was not open on the day of our tour but it didn’t detract from our boat tour experience at all. The day was sunny and the water and stone formations on Capri were beautiful! Our boat captain was really experienced and got very close to the white and green grottoes so that we can taken some gorgeous pictures. Overall a wonderful experience!

I felt the guide was critical to the enjoyment and that the AR Glasses portion added just 10% to the overall experience. Our Guide was knowledgeable and fun. The skip the line tickets worked fine. Herculaneum itself is AMAZING! I felt the overall price was expensive but it was worth it.

DAVID our awesome guide. Fantastic tour and very interesting explanation. Thank you David. angels
