Bruno was our guide for this tour. His English is excellent, he’s very professional and friendly, makes good conversation and is very knowledgeable about the local culture. We had expected more bar-hopping and drink tasting than actually occurred, but we enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot nonetheless. We visited a rooftop bar atop the Museum of Contemporary Art, followed by drinks at Sky Bar atop the Unique Hotel (which we went back to on our own the next evening for dinner- amazing). We ended the night with a drive through Augusta and Villa Madaleina neighborhoods to get a glimpse at the nightlife and Bruno took us for a quick walk to see some architecture by night. Very well done!

We were completely satisfied with the detailed expert information . The tour was just fantastic and we had a lot of fun. We would like to thank Birgit and Matthias
