I wanted to give 10 but 5 was the maximum! Fluvio was absolutely amazing, he was so enthusiastic and made the tour so fun! It didn’t even feel like 5 hours of walking. It was only 4 of us and despite the torrential rain we had the best of time. He showed us amazing restaurants and pastry shops. Also guided us to the souvenir area and explained the history of Napoli perfectly. Definitely worth all the money!

Great way to spend lunch in Napoli. Luigi is an amazing teacher and took the time to make sure we got our dough perfect and really knew how to take this new skill home with us! I highly recommend this experience!

Anna went above and beyond when a technical glitch happened the day of our tour. our daughter had a great 9th bday and Anna also customized the tour so we could get some Christmas shopping in too.

Wow this was the best day of my life! Laura was our guide and really went in depth on the culture and history of every where we visited. If you're looking for a day trip from rome this is it!
