Amazing guide Sofia! We highly recommend spending time with her on this wonderful tour! Sofia is a lively guide who shares a lot of information and good mood We will see you on the next tours, but for now I would like to thank you very much for the experience and the knowledge gained Guida straordinaria Sofia! Consigliamo vivamente di trascorrere del tempo con lei in questo meraviglioso tour! Sofia è una guida vivace che condivide molte informazioni e buon umore Ci vedremo nei prossimi tour, ma per ora vorrei ringraziarvi molto per l'esperienza e le conoscenze acquisite Nuostabi vieta, kurią verta aplankyti lankantis Turine! Labai rekomenduojam gidę Sofia, nes jos žinios ir charizma keliaujant kartu įtraukia į tikrą istoriją!

Abbiamo incontrato Sofia, la nostra guida per il tour, all’ingresso di Palazzo Reale. Gentilissima, molto brava, chiara ed esaustiva nelle sue spiegazioni e anche attenta alla presenza di ragazzi e di possibili loro necessità. Davvero soddisfatti della visita e della guida. Unico piccolo neo: il luogo di ritrovo non era chiarissimo sulla mappa e Sofia come altre guide non avevano ‘GetYourGuide’ sul loro cartello ma un altro nome che ha un po’ tratto in inganno. Ma tutto si è risolto in qualche minuto.

The experience was excellent. A real cooking class with an Italian family. Nothing like a normal class in a place, but rather cooking in the host house. The hosts were incredible nice and despite the fact this is not their regular work, they seemed well prepared and gave us a wonderful time together.

A beautiful experience only with a minimum of organization, the Egyptian museum, the royal palace, the cathedral, the car museum and lots to see in your free time, a special applause to our. guides and in particular to Gabriella for her truly priceless availability and sympathy.

Prachtige winkels, overal super vriendelijk personeel, heel proper, zalige uren in een heel mooi en proper en sfeervolle omgeving.
