A Recent Review of this tour

Francesca was very personable and very knowledgeable. She was prompt and very flexible in our itinerary. We especially enjoyed the cooking class she arranged for my husband and me. I would certainly recommend her and use her again if we are ever in Genoa. Her knowledge of the history in Genoa was impressive.
