Gianpaolo is an excellent guide and walking tour. We did the guided walking tour on May 5, 2022. The tour was a comfortable pace while ensuring the guests safety especially crossing busy intersections. Gianpaolo clearly explained the itinerary, patient, happy to answer questions, was funny and entertaining. He took us to the best scenery and historical spots in Sorrento that was capped by a sunny, gorgeous day in Sorrento. Highly recommend this tour.

Roberta, our guide is amazing! She took us through the entire history! As well as pointing out interesting things throughout the tour! Truly one of the best tours I’ve been on in a while!

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the city and region. We never felt rushed and actually spent an extra 30 minutes with our guide.

Instructive, enjoyable, well paced, I would recommend it to a first time visitor

It was great. Small group. Guide was very personable.
