We had barely a day in Verona so booked this well recommended walking tour to give an overview of the city. We were not disappointed. Elisa had excellent knowledge,good English and understood and catered for our interests. The walk was at a relaxed pace but she managed to cover most of the major sites in our two hours available.

Spent a lovely morning with Elisa in Verona. Her knowledge of the area was impressive and she has a lovely and entertaining way of storytelling. We would highly recommend this tour. It was a great way to get some insight into Verona.

We booked Silvia Baschirotto for a 3 hour walking trip around Verona. There was so much to see and hear about, Silvia pointed us in the direction of what we could see on our own as well over the next 4 days we were in the city. We felt we saw the historic sites with "behind the scene" history pointed... More

My two daughters and I booked a morning tour with Siliva in June of this year. She was absolutely wonderful. She allowed us to choose the amount of time and give her some information about us so she could show us things of interest to us. Not only did she show us some interesting things throughout Verona we never would... More

A friend and I went to Verona and we used Silvia. We had a 5 hour walking tour and stopped for lunch on route. She was delightful and very knowledgable. It was a very good day and we felt we saw a great deal of Verona that a lot of others tourists might easily miss. She recommended 2 restaurants which... More

Dear Marylin, thank you so much indeed! It was so funny talking with you in that Osteria, I really enjoyed the time we spent togheter! And, it was interesting to see a 5 hours tour in Verona excluding the Arena and Juliet's house - normally a "must to see" in Verona. Thanks again, greetings to your friend and your husband.... More

My boyfriend and I booked a two hour tour with Silvia last Saturday. She was great - passionate, informed, enthusiastic. He was particularly interested in architecture, so she tailored the tour to that. She took us off the beaten track to places we would never have found and also took us to the major tourist sites. Although we booked for... More

Sylvia took three of us on a two day private tour, one day in and around Verona itself, the other around Lake Garda. We had an excellent experience! Sylvia is extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, engaged with her subject and well able to communicate her knowledge in an interesting way. I have no hesitation in recommending - If you want a customised,... More

Dear Paul, thank you! It was nice to have the possibility to have a day in the countryside, it gives a complete idea of the territory surrounding Verona. You remember so many things and you've been in so many places: it is hard to find new things for you! But I hope to see you next year. thanks again Silvia More

Silvia is a delightful, informative local resident with a passion for her city. She designs her tour to meet the individual needs of her customers. She points out fascinating features of the city that we did not notice wandering around by ourselves. Highly recommended.

Dear Philip, thank you! This is exactly what we tried to do. Me and Elisa try to organize always and only tailor-made tours according to the interests of our clients. Every tour is different from the others, because the people we meet are different. I'm very happy you like it, we try to do our best. Many thanks and hope... More

Excellent tour, booked a couple of days before we arrived in Verona. Sylvia corresponded via email beforehand and by mobile on the day and was very accommodating. The tour was amazing - we visit the cellars of local restaurants, 5* hotel, shops, alleyways and private courtyards and shown the roman excavations and historical architectural features hidden from the general public....
