We asked Flavio to show us something special, not only touristic attractions. He fulfilled our requests even more than we expected. As a local Genovese, he told us many interesting information about the city and life of local people. We can highly recommend him as a tour guide, who is well educated, polite and knows a lot about Genova.

I love the hop on hop off busses. I have used them in many countries. I only wish you would make it easier to find the stops or at least put a map in the ticket information section. We have caught 2 busses, 1 in Paris, 1 in Genoa in the past week and found it extremely difficult to find the nearest stops to our accommodation.

Our guide Francesca Busellato was truly excellent....detailed, available to my husband and me and truly very very professionally prepared. We were happy to have met her and toured Genoa with her, despite the rain. Hoping to meet again, perhaps in Naples, we highly recommend a tour of Genoa with her❣️

Very good city tour, orderly, clean and the descents and ascents at the established points were carried out without any problems and the routes of both lines were very well chosen

Good hop on/off ride but the guide was more concerned about your ticket
