Sofia è una guida vivace che condivide molte informazioni e buon umore Ci vedremo nei prossimi tour, ma per ora vorrei ringraziarvi molto per l'esperienza e le conoscenze acquisite Nuostabi vieta, kurią verta aplankyti lankantis Turine! Labai rekomenduojam gidę Sofia, nes jos žinios ir charizma keliaujant kartu įtraukia į tikrą istoriją!

Although the Egyptian Museum is better-known and probably more popular (judging from the crowds), we especially enjoyed our tour of the Royal Palace. It is very well preserved and there are fascinating collections (for instance the weapons and armor collection). Of course, the mummies and other artifacts from Egyptian antiquity are also extremely interesting. Our tour guide was dynamic as well as a captivating presenter who spoke excellent English. Combining a visit of the Royal Palace with the Egyptian Museum is a great idea for those with limited time (this was our case), although people may get a little tired at the end (4 hours of standing or walking).

Abbiamo incontrato Sofia, la nostra guida per il tour, all’ingresso di Palazzo Reale. Gentilissima, molto brava, chiara ed esaustiva nelle sue spiegazioni e anche attenta alla presenza di ragazzi e di possibili loro necessità. Davvero soddisfatti della visita e della guida. Unico piccolo neo: il luogo di ritrovo non era chiarissimo sulla mappa e Sofia come altre guide non avevano ‘GetYourGuide’ sul loro cartello ma un altro nome che ha un po’ tratto in inganno. Ma tutto si è risolto in qualche minuto.

Visita molto interessante e luogo descritto alla perfezione arricchito di curiosità e aneddoti storici che difficilmente si riuscirebbero a scoprire nei testi. La guida una stupenda persona seria e professionale

Sophia has a remarkable understanding of the Royal Palace and the House of Savoy. We learned so much and she brought the museum alive for us. Would highly recommend her as a guide!
