Guide Daniella spoke very enthusiastically and with a lot of humor. Learned a lot of things about Neapolitan culture and of course the food. She also gave many tips about places that were fun to visit in Naples. In addition, of course, street food: not the healthiest food, but very tasty and certainly more than enough for dinner. Antipasti, two types of pizza, fried pasta, sfogliatella, baba, limoncello and finally ice cream (or coffee). Recommended!

I did the tour with Sara a week and a half ago and really enjoyed the tour. She frequently made sure everyone was following in the crowded streets of Naples. The food was delicious, as expected. You can't go wrong with Southern Italian cuisine.

Very interesting tour that includes parts of Naples that absolutely must be seen! Our guide (Carlo) was very good at making himself listened to, explaining in a "light" way and without tiring!

Francesca our tour guide was amazing and incredibly knowledgeable. She explained the history and culture of this beautiful city and gave us an insight of the life in Naples throughout history

Very informative. Carlo was fun, knowledgeable and personable.
