We thoroughly loved this tour and our guide, Alex, was amazing. He taught us so much about Napoli, the history and culture in the context of the streets and the food. He made the tour so fascinating and the time flew by. We had the opportunity to try many different dishes tied to Napoli, and the portion sizes were larger than expected. He accommodated others on the tour who were vegetarian as well. We expected to only have small bites, but we’re more than satisfied with the generous sample sizes. Naples was a stop for our Mediterranean cruise and this was a perfect excursion. Only 30 minute walk from the ship, it was very convenient. This tour enabled us to see Napoli through the eyes of locals and understand the city in a different way. In comparing experiences with others on the ship, the city seemed frenetic; chaotic and when they heard about our tour, they wished they had taken it too. Whether you are staying in NaplesI highly recommend the tour and Alex as an exceptional guide.

Our tour guide, Alex, was phenomenal. He swiftly guided us through Napoli, and shared with us a plethora of interesting facts and history about the city along the way. The food was delicious. I was expecting to only receive a bite of a few different foods, but the portions were extremely generous. I left feeling I had really experienced the best of Napoli! Thank you!
