Excellent and highly enjoyable tour ! The guide really explained very well and shown me a lot of places and interesting things. I did this tour soon after I arrived in Bergamo and this was the perfect way to start my visit here. The tour should have been for 2 hours, but the guide keep on going for almost 3 hours. She also gave me a lot of hints of what to visit and how to plan my next two days in Bergamo. Highly recommended !

We went to Bergamo Alta with Cristina. What can I say… highly trained, available and caring guide. Among other things, she contacted us the day before to ask us if we had any doubts about how to reach her. At the last moment I asked if I could add my son to the visit and she worked (together with the very kind Camilla) to sort it out. Well done!

Valter showed us around this wonderful old town of Bergamo. It was very clear and interesting at the same time. A visit of more than 2 hours which takes you back to centuries of history.
