Our guide Paola (sorry if spelling is wrong) was knowledgeable and very engaging - she made the tour interesting and informative. Good group size and easy to hear/understand. Well worth it to learn about the Arena instead of just walking around alone.

Nos gustó mucho la excursión, la guía era muy profesional. El tiempo libre nos permitió pasear por la ciudad a nuestro aire y nos comimos un helado junto al río en un sitio que nos recomendó la guía de Amigo. Disfrutamos mucho del día

Esta excursión es el complemento perfecto en nuestro viaje a Venecia. El guía nos explicó la historia de Verona y pudimos pasear y conocerla. El viaje en tren fue muy cómodo y disfrutamos de las vistas. Lo recomendamos!

We probably saved ourselves an hour by skipping the queue at the Arena. Good value and a great, convenient way to experience the city

Very interesting excursion from Lake Garda to Verona! We were particularly satisfied with the tour guide in Verona.
