What people are saying about Turin
Despite having already visited the Cairo museum, this one in Turin still has a large quantity of finds, even of great value and well preserved. The spaces available for visits, especially the guided ones, should be managed better as the groups often crossed each other creating confusion. However nice experience that I recommend to lovers of the genre.
Sophia was an excellent guide. Super friendly and knowledgeable on the history of the palace and its inhabitants. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tour guide in Turino! Many thanks
The guide was very professional and helpful. Without her we would have enjoyed the visit much less. The quality / price ratio is excellent because we had the guide for just the two of us.
Andrea cultured and funny person. Tour around Turin interesting and not boring.
Andrea, the guide, very knowledgeable and passionate. A beautiful experience
