Fabio Massimo is a truly excellent guide, you can see that he has passion in what he does and he entertained us for 2 hours with his explanations and anecdotes. He showed us hidden corners from the usual visits to a city and we really liked this. Time flew by because we would have spent all day listening to it anyway. A cheerful, prepared and competent person, also nice and funny which never hurts. I highly recommend this tour with him!

The tour guided by Fabio was impeccable, he made us discover hidden and certainly less touristy corners of Verona with an exhaustive and tasty explanation and discovery of the history of the city and its main monuments, all combined with an excellent dose of friendliness and welcome from our guide who immediately made us feel like a group thanks

Practical and entertaining historic background of Verona, with details of a self-guided walk. So glad I purchased this- I feel I have experienced Verona to to full. Matthew was available and responded to help- very friendly and helpful. Once I got the app up, it was easy and fun to follow. Highly recommend.
