Great tour, can be recommended! However, GetyourGide announced the tour with e-bikes, which were not available on site. That wasn't a problem in principle, but the guide told us that the tour hasn't taken place with e-bikes for more than 2 years, but GetyourGuide just can't manage to change that in its description on the platform... Still : You can easily complete the tour without an e-bike.

Nos gustó mucho la excursión, la guía era muy profesional. El tiempo libre nos permitió pasear por la ciudad a nuestro aire y nos comimos un helado junto al río en un sitio que nos recomendó la guía de Amigo. Disfrutamos mucho del día

Esta excursión es el complemento perfecto en nuestro viaje a Venecia. El guía nos explicó la historia de Verona y pudimos pasear y conocerla. El viaje en tren fue muy cómodo y disfrutamos de las vistas. Lo recomendamos!
