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

We had a great time on this tour that we chose for our first full day in Genoa as we thought it would give a us a good grounding on the city and the places to eat and visit. Our guide Isabella was so very warm and generous with her knowledge of the food traditions and history of Genoa we were absolutely delighted with the tour and would thoroughly recommend it as a great way to start a holiday here. Not only was she very generous with her time and knowledge and had great suggestions for worthwhile atractions in the city and the wider area, but she also gave us great insight into contemporary matters and life in this lovely city. We thouroughly enjoyed the tour and thought it is was good value and well worthwhile, and in particular our wonderful guide Isabella who brought It all to life for us. 5 Stars.
