We really enjoyed our tour with Antonella. A sweet and very likeable person, she brought us to the places we wanted to see and more - interesting spots like the medieval gates and the lesser-known but extremely beautiful old churches. She provided a good feel for the local way of life and helped us with our questions on our train to Cinque Terre, good local food, safety issues, etc. She put together a great walking itinerary and helped us to learn about and fall in love with Genoa. With only a day and a half in Genoa, a guide like Antonella is a "must-have". We wouldn't have been able to see or learn as much about Genoa on our own. PS: The tour operator, lokafy.com, actually tried to a call me several times from NY to ensure I would be happy with what the guide would be providing. I am extremely impressed by their great level of service and strong professionalism. Will definitely be doing more tours with them and Get Your Guide in the future.
Was not aware we were being attached to a tour coming from Milan. The guide arrived 1/2 hour after scheduled meeting time as they were delayed coming from Milan, leaving the 8 of us rather concerned as meeting point is outside a museum and no tour rep or office there. Had 2 guides one for Genoa walk & another for rest of tour. Both were lovely Enjoyed the tour, in particular the ferry ride from Portofino to Genoa was fantastic Our group of 8 had to catch the ferry back to Genoa, which was great, but we felt in limbo as we were given a ferry ticket and time to be at the terminal. No sign up on ferry or jetty to state if it was our boat, so we hoped we were queuing up in right line. Would have been nice to have the tour guide to meet us at jetty to say “ this is your ferry “ Despite my comments above we all had a really great day!!
Eleonora is a wonderfully welcoming person who loves her city. We were located close to the area we would be seeing so she guided us walking to see the city center including a bit of the old town both from the inside of it and from the top. We got there through the panoramic elevator. We were staying for a few days so she told us how to get around the city and how to reach other interesting spots. She was so gracious and offered to help us if we had questions later. The buildings are incredible there's so much to see. Eleonora pointed out the "newer" buildings which had only been built in the 1700s. So much history to absorb can not be done in the brief time we were there.
The tour would start at 09:30 in Gênova but started only at 10:30 because a group was coming from Milan and nobody told me that.So beyond I needed to wait for 1 hour, I lose 1 hour of the tour in Gênova citycenter. The guide did the tour almost running. We didn't have the oportunity to get in the san Lorenzo catedral. After that the tour was more calm because we took boats to Portofino. I really want to say that the get your guide's customer service was really good trying to help the situation with the guide (that was late). Also I have to say that the guide (english speakers) was not friendly with most of the group.
It was a great tour full of interesting information of the history of Genova. Also the guide was very friendly and used to do this, perfect English and humor!
