Our guide was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the city. For my sister and I this was an ideal way to explore the city at the start of our trip, to get a feel for it and to see which sights we wanted to explore more. The route itself was very bikefriendly and was clearly planned for that reason.

Service was as advertised but I do wish it went past 5pm … saying something is good for 24-hours sort of implies being able to use over the course of a full day. I liked that the route picked up right at the train station. Best if used earlier in day.

As always, we got to explore the city of Verona with the help of Hop on hop off bus. It was late but it's understandable due to traffic. Always satisfied!!! Well recommended if a first timer in one city.

You learn a lot and get a good overview of the city in a very short time.

It was easy way to see the city , and had lots of time when got of
