Silvia was an amazing guide. She was so knowledgeable and so passionate I loved hearing her tell the story of Calgiari and its underground secrets. She was a pleasure to be around and she also gave us some fantastic dinner recommendations. I highly recommend booking this tour. Silvia does the afternoons and Francia does the mornings. Francia is also an amazing guide so you can’t go wrong no matter who you end up with.

This tour was super interesting! The guide was very knowledgeable and also very funny, and had no problems switching between English and Italian for our diverse little group! I definitely had 0 idea of all the history in Cagliari and she made me want to do a deep dive because it’s definitely unique. Thank you Francesca for everything!

Our tour Celia was fantastic! It was very impressive to listen to her switch from English to Italian to accommodate all of the group members. At the end of the tour, it was just my mom and I that signed up for the food and wine tasting and she stuck around to chat with us until we left! Super great and educational tour.

Excellent day trip. Our guide was very friendly and talkative, and she spoke great English. She was very knowledgeable about the Nuraghi and was an excellent guid. I really enjoyed the tour and I could see that the others in my group did as well.

Francesca was amazing and super informative. She packed in so much information and made it very engaging for us. We had a great group of people on the tour too who were fun to meet and talk to. Super day out, I recommend highly!!
