We originally reserved the private hop-on/hop-off experience with a tour guide, but unfortunately our guide was diagnosed with COVID before we arrived in Italy; however, it all worked out perfectly. Without the guide, we were on own own to explore the three Borromean Islands. We may have missed some highlights without the guide, but being on our "own time" was very enjoyable. This company runs a smooth and efficient operation as our boat was never more than 5-10 minutes away for a pick-up or drop-off. It may have been a little costly, but in my mind, well worth the convenience! Thanks!

It’s an easy way to get around and learn about the city, young children adore the double decker bus. Hop off at the museums and parks then hop on again, you can get more attractions covered.

Great experience visiting the different eras of underground life in Turin. You also got to see different parts of the city when going between tour sites.

Sehr spannend, sehr kompetente Guide, schade dass im Inneren des Museums nur sehr wenige Sitzgelegenheiten sind.

It was a good experience, organized. Driver was excellent. But AC was low , they have to fix it for next time
