Very informative guide covered all the highlights in central Verona.

Our guides very informative and had a detailed knowledge of the history of Verona. The walking tour was just over 2.5hours and we covered all the main sights in the old part of Verona, and some not so well known areas. Would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a concise history of Verona.

Amazing Vespa Tour

We did the Vespa tour and it was one of the best things we did while in Italy. The Vespas were pretty new and our guide was really funny. My wife had no practice with Vespas or any other kind of motorcycles, however, at the end of the day, she was driving like a crazy rider!! (not that much!!!LOL) The tour was amazing and unforgettable. If you like adventures, wonderful landscapes, tasting good wine and making a pic-nix, just do it!!

Fun Way to Tour Verona

We really enjoyed our tour by bike. It was the perfect way to see Verona in 3 hours. Katerina did a great job leading the tour. She always made sure we were safe, was very easy to follow and was extremely knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the history of the city and saw some amazing sights. We especially loved riding through areas that we never would have found if traveling by foot.

Great way to see Verona

We had a great time on this cycle tour of Verona. It was a great way to see the city, especially some of the back streets you probably wouldn't know were there. The cycling was easy going, with regular stops to enjoy the views and learn about the sights. Our tour guide was Caterina, she was really friendly and knowledgeable....

Half day bike and wine tasting tour

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Isabella our guide arrived promptly with two good quality bikes and we headed off on a 2 to 3 hour cycle into the Veronese countryside. Isabella was a wealth of knowledge when it came to the history of the city as well as the food and wine. We finished up our afternoon in Enoteca Segreta, a hidden wine bar in verona where we tasted local wine, cheese and cured ham. The staff were very welcoming and obviously extremely passionate about their produce. Luckily it wasn't too far to cycle home. We would highly recommend this tour!

Half day bike ride-Lovely way to see the city

Firstly I'd like to say how helpful and friendly the staff {Matteo and Consuello} were.They were in regular touch and organised my tour at very short notice.Thank you guys.Benadetta was our guide She showed us around this most wonderful city, giving us plenty of historical information on the way.The view from the hill is spectacular and well worth the bike push for the last part of the climb. It really is a lovely way to get to grips with this beautiful city and help decide where you will wander later on foot.
