The tour was great and I left after two hours with a good understanding of Sardinia and in particular the story of Catalina and the peoples who had lived here. Was very worthwhile and I strongly recommend.
The request for a deposit when booking felt like a scam but was not.

We were on a cruise stopping at Cagliari and looking for something not with the cruise company. Found Free tours here and figured we'd try them. The timing was perfect, about 45 minutes after we docked and if it didn't work out too good, we had plenty of time to see the things we had already planned on.

The pink flamingos where right where they said they'd be. Split us into 2 groups of about 18 each. Not too big that you couldn't hear what the guide was saying, but small enough to walk from sight to sight.

The information was excellent, better than a number of paid tours we've taken. Especially better than the ones our cruise company provided that we ended up on.

One couldn't do much better and the cost is perfect!!!

Was not planning to do a guided tour. Was in Piazza Venne and was planning my route when I saw her. Damn, I really feel embarrassed that I can not remember her name. She was Polish and has lived in Cagliari for about 4 years. Decided to join her tour. What a smart decision that was. There was another English couple with us ans the tour guide was good. Gave us a great insight to the city that I would not have had. Would definitely recommend using this service.

We had a weekend in Cagliari and decided to discover the history of the city. We totally recomend it, specially starting the free tour in the morning.

I just did a 2hour tour with Julia (hope the name is well written) and it was fantastic. She is a really nice person, explaining the history of the city in a fun and entertaining way! The tour is really nice and we ended up knowing a little bit more about the long long history of Cagliari. It was an amazing choice 😊

I had gone to Cagliari for the beach and had not considered doing a tour of the city before. Walking around the historical city centre made me realise that I was perhaps missing a trick. Thanks to the fast réponse from the walking tour, I was fortunate enough to be able to join in an English tour by Jessica (?), a native Sardinian who speaks excellent English, on the very day of my departure.

Having explained the history of Sardinia as influenced by the Pisans, four centuries of Spanish domination, the unification of Italy under the King of Sardinia, Mussolini etc, Jessica showed us around Il Castello, which in the olden days was the heart of Cagliari and thus Sardinia. The weather was hot, but the walk was easy to manage. I had already been curious about the Sardinian flag, and really enjoyed the story that was explained.

Jessica explained that the walking tour had been founded by a group of 4 girls (she is one of them) who felt that it was a pity to see tourists in the city only heading for the beach and missing out on the history of the city right before their eyes. In short, it’s targeted at tourists like me and it worked! She was very authentic, and while tips were welcomed, I felt that she was really someone who did want to share about the history of the city.

Do make the time for this tour - it’s well worth it. It starts at 10 am at the obelisk at Piazza Yenne. You should email in advance to check that a tour will be held in your language. The tour generally keeps to the shade, but bring sunglasses, water and a cap.

We have just returned from a short trip to Cagliari and our experience was really enhanced by spending our first morning on this tour.
The tour lasts just over 2 hours and although in that brief time you can't cover all of the city, we walked a fair distance and also learned about the distant areas that we couldn't cover.
Our guide was very informative and fluent in English and made sure that all members of the party fully enjoyed the experience.( In fact during the days after the tour we met local Sardinians who were then bowled over by the knowledge that we'd gleaned!!)
The city has some very steep roads/steps, but the guide took us on a route that wasn't so arduous and had more gradual inclines.

All in all we felt it was a tour not to be missed!

Two hours of leisurely walking (involving a few hills). Really informative and relevant. Quality of English superb. Answered all questions really well. Friendly and interesting. I highly recommend. (I think our guide's name was Jessica ???)

We organised a private tour and we were the only two people who had made enquiries. This was still a quiet time of the year. Our guide, Jessica, was excellent. She took us to places that we had already walked around the day before but we did not spot quite a few of the things Jessica pointed out and with overview of the history, it was a very interesting tour and one that I would definitely recommend.
