A Recent Review of this tour

Natascia was a lovely guide for our family of four, met us at the port and took us on a tour of Genoa. We loved her love of history and language and art and her passion for Genoa and we also enjoyed the visit to Portofino with great history and delicious gelato specialties while enjoying the beauty of the small, lushly planted port. She was very thoughtful about where our disabled traveler could go and what was the best way to see the most considering her limitations. Highly Recommended!
