The guide was very kind and gave us a nice tour of Genova. For future guests, it would be great to have a better sense of the quantity (quite a lot), types and frequency of stops being made and a general sense of how we'd be touring Genova--what we'd be watching out for, a bit more about the food history etc.

Wonderful experience. Silvia was an expert guide sharing history and humor on the tour. The food was fabulous and we went back a few days later to have more focaccia. The variety of places we went to gave us a real taste of the gods of Genova. The fried fish to start was light and tasty and when one of our travelers expressed a dislike of fish she was given a vegetable fritter. The tarts were very good but would have preferred them not being heated in the microwave. The little restaurant with a different menu of the day was outstanding with a number of choices for changing daily, we would have gone back if they were open on the weekend. The tour was a great start to our stay in Genova! Definitely worth 5 stars! Thank you Silvia
