Really excellent. The tour was beautiful, the explanations of the guide, Carlo, absolutely exhaustive, clear, with a common thread that took us into the soul of this city as well as illustrating the magnificence that Naples holds. All with a veil of irony and Neapolitan lightness that is always a pleasure. Time passed in an instant and we can only recommend that you be accompanied by someone who will be able to make you appreciate the wonders of Naples even more.

The guide's approach to the group was very pleasant and, despite being large, it remained united and everyone had fun, even the 7 year old children. detailed explanations in "Alberto Angela" style.

I would like to compliment the guide Carlo Zarone, a friendly, professional, competent person. He guided us through art and culture with ease and friendliness. The guide that each of us would always like.

Guide Carlo, a super prepared person with a very remarkable cultural background. great entertainer. Excellent tour, highly recommended.

Very interesting and detailed tour in the illustration of the contents thanks to the guide Carlo Z.
