Benedetta was a perfect guide, she took us around to some amazing food and drink places that we would like to visit again. She is very knowledgeable about certain monuments and if you have any questions about store specific items she translates for you with store staff. All around funny and amazing ☺️

A wonderful and intimate tour with a very funny guide named Diana. It’s really worth the money and I think Diana has a lot of knowledge about wine. I’m a beginner but she managed to explain it all very well anyway! I tour of the city-light witch was perfect for us ’cause we’re not that interested in history. Also good tips at places to go and where to eat and What to see in Verona!

Diana’s an excellent tour guide

Really enjoyed the walking tour. Being hard of hearing I did struggle to hear the guide because of the background noise and traffic and guide’s accent so I did miss much of what was being said! We visited lovely little bars and had nice food samples (starter main course and ice cream) and wine samples (1 bottle between 12). Stopped off at 5 places for the samples. Friendly crowd of folk on the tour. Guide was good fun and friendly and very knowledgeable. A little pricey for the amount of food and wine you get but really enjoyed it and glad we did it!
