We have booked with Virginia and Romeo and Juliet Tours twice now and both day trips were out of this world. Our group was so amazed with her professionalism and knowledge of the culture and beautiful country. Our trip into the heart of Vernon was breath taking with all that she had to show us and to finish the afternoon off with two off the best wine vineyards in the world was amazing. Virginia's fun out going spirit made these day trip very memorable for our group. Again blown away by all of Vaginas outspoken knowledge from the growth of the grape to the harvest, bottling process then the proper way of tasting the awesome wine. We have many more plans to use this service again in future trips. Romeo and Juliet Tour service comes highly recommend by the Armstrong's, Charlotte NC USA.

This was such a great and exciting experience! I will never think of Romeo and Juliet the same way again. So worth it!

Thanks to Tripadvisor we came across this fun activity in Verona. Even though we could not join a scheduled event, we did a private session with Francesco to discover the truth about Romeo and Juliette. The arrangements were done a couple of days before the planning day. They replied very promptly and efficiently by email. It is a very creative approach to enjoy the city from a different perspective. You are fully immersed in the story and the puzzles and games will keep you very busy. They take care of all the details and the connection between different locations happens very smoothly through the story. There is a break were a delightful aperitif is served in a local place. Our host Francesco made our one-day stay in Verona a very unique experience. His passion for history and his town is merged with his charismatic style to tell stories. If you like “Escape rooms” and are bored of the conventional guided tours or guidebooks, this is definitely for you. The concept they have developed is just unique. You will not be disappointed. We are eager to do the other tours they offer. Congratulations for the good job!

Francesco was our tour guide and he was welcoming from the moment we met him. We wanted to make the tour of Verona something different than the traditional for our teenage daughters. Francesco did this (for them and for us), He had fun clues and puzzles to solve which made us take a closer look at things like buildings, piazzas, etc. We learned not only about the traditional Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet from this tour, but also the other written works that could have been the forerunners to this classic. Francesco was a wealth of knowledge, and an engaging guide. This tour included an aperitif of appetizer-type foods and a drink each. The food was delicious and the locale accommodated our vegetarian needs beautifully. Highly recommend this tour.

I booked this tour not really knowing what to expect but we were presently surprised! Francesco our tour guide was brilliant and extremely knowledgeable even about things that weren't to do with our tour (killing cangrande). The tour was very interactive and it was a great way to learn about history whilst making it fun at the same time. We ended up having a private tour as another family didn't turn up which suited us! Having an aperitif and a drink in the middle of the tour was a great idea and it was good to get a chance to talk to francesco. I wish we could have got a chance to do the other tour but unfortunately we didn't! I would highly recommend anyone to do this tour whilst in Verona. Thank you Francesco!
