I swore I would write him a fabulous review - and I am - but I’ve forgotten his name…. Uffa. It was an interesting tour with an excellent guide. I like a bit of off-history and off-beat information and back street walks. This tour hit all the right notes. If you’re lucky, you’ll get xxxxxx as your guide. He’s been a guide for 20 years and has 2 children and a wife. That’s all I remember. Sorry.

Alessandra è stata la guida migliore che abbiamo avuto in tutta la nostra vita! Per 2 ore e mezza ci ha raccontato moltissime cose di Napoli e dei luoghi della città che abbiamo visitato, spaziando da street art, storia, simboli della città, origini, chiese e vita di tutti i giorni a Napoli. La passione con cui fa il suo lavoro ci è stata trasmessa immediatamente. Il tempo è volato, saremmo volute rimanere con Alessandra per altre ore e ore! Unico rammarico: esser ripartite senza aver fatto altri tour della città con Alessandra :) Non vediamo l'ora per la nostra prossima visita a Napoli e dintorni! Sara e Daniela

It doesn't make any sense to visit Naples without doing a walking tour: highly recommend! We learned so many things about places and buildings, walking through the city with all those stories around Naples and its citizens makes you really understand the culture and you feel more part of it. Our guide Michele was lovely and we really had a fun afternoon.
