What people are saying about Padua

On the way with Christine and Aurora in Verona, very nice and funny guides. Reliable bus driver. Group size with regard to the occupation of the bus a bit borderline due to Corona. The approach to the approach in Limone is very long at 3 hours. Stay in Verona is still sufficient with 5 hours. It was a beautiful, but also exhausting day - as is usually the case with city tours ;-) ..

excellent day out, both guides were great

Had a great day out in Verona, our guide on the coach was really well informed and cheerful all day. Leonardo in Verona, was hilarious and knew his area extremely well. Would recommend to anyone. What was also so kind and thoughtful, is that we were picked up from our hotel, saving us at least a 30 minute walk.

This is a great way to explore a city at your own pace and with the added element of making it in to a game. The clues are quite simple so not over taxing or complicated and so I think this works for both couples and families.

First class service!

Courier Francesco was excellent. The trip was well balanced with the right amount of information and free time. The walking tour was also worthwhile. The courier was concise and well versed in his topic.

Very enjoyable day

A very enjoyable trip to Verona with Fabio a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who educated us all
