“Great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

I can't say enough good things about Elisa and Sylvia. Not only are they well educated about the subjects and area, they provide a personal window into the region. They are very pleasant to be around and provide more than just the usual tour. They accommodate personal needs, ( like stoping for a coffee and pastry ) easily. They respond to emails immediately, as well as following up to confirm- something other tours we've had, did not do. They are reasonably priced and are well worth your time and money.
Elisa did Modena with a Parma cheese dairy, and castle , lunch in a great restaurant and a Balsamico production. A festival happened to be taking place, so we visited. Great day!
Silvia did a walking tour of Verona with lunch which we really enjoyed.

Thank you Judy! For me and Silvia was really nice to meet you all! In Modena we had such a great time between cheese, castles, good food, wine and Traditional Balsamic Vinegar! Silvia also enjoyed your walk in Verona! Hope you brought back in the U.S. happy memories of the time we spent together!

“Good introduction to Verona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Like others, we had a very enjoyable 2-hour private walking tour with Elisa on our first day in Verona. I chose Colors of Italy after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was very easy to communicate with them by e-mail before our trip to decide on an itinerary. At the appointed time, Elisa was waiting for us in Piazza Bra. She took us in to tour the Arena, and then led us through the old city, which gave us a good overview of the city layout. In addition to the history, we learned interesting things about the culture and cuisine of Verona. Elisa readily answered our questions, and gave us some good restaurant recommendations.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the visit and I hope you were able to taste some good local food and wine! I always talk about traditional and local cuisine because I think it's the best way to discover a new town and in the local "osterie" you can spend the best time out with friends and relatives!

“Excellent guide, highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Booked Elisa, one of guides from Colors of Italy on-line before our trip to Verona. There were four of us and she showed us the main buildings and areas of interest on a 2 hour walking trip. She was very informative but also very relaxed and willing to adapt her tour to whatever we wanted to see.Her English was excellent and she was very personable. She even came with us to somewhere she suggested the locals tend to lunch and helped us order. I would highly recommend her as a tour guide

Thank you very much for your feedback! I'm really glad you enjoyed the tour. The most important thing for me, during a tour, is that my guests feel like at home. And Verona is so charming that the only thing you have to do is stroll through the city centre and get lost...

“A tour you will never forget...only the best with Colors of Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

My husband and I along with our daughters decided to take a a walking tour with Sylvia based on everyones reviews. She did not disappoint. It was one of the highlights of our 4 days in Verona. Sylvia has such passion and is so knowledgable about Verona. She brings the city alive and really helps you understand the history of Verona and all its beautiful treasures. She took us to see all the highlights including the best Gelato ever. Sylvia, is one of the best tour guides we have had throughout our travels in italy. She will take you wherever you want to go and will go as in depth as you need her to. Be sure to take the tour at the beginning of your stay so that you can go back and explore your favourites on your own. She gave us some great tips suggestions for restaurants and they were great. Book Sylvia when in Verona.

“Quality Verona Tours at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

After reading the reviews in Trip Advisor, my wife and I engaged Silvia of "Colors of Italy" to provide a ½ day tour of oldtown Italy. We decided to increase the private tour from 2 to 3 hours. Silvia proved to be very knowledgeable about the history of Verona and provided insight into the history of the city and its Roman past. After meeting us at our Hotel, we started by visiting the Arena of Verona, followed by a walk through “Old Town”, looking at Churches and Monasteries and other historic sites. With Silvia’s explanations of history we started to understand and appreciate the historic significance of Verona. Italian law has changed to no longer put the same strict requirements to obtain a guide license and Verona has over 350 guides of varying knowledge, skills and experience. It is therefore critically important to do your research and find people such as Colors of Italy to get the most value and appreciation of your Verona tour.
