This tour was amazing! First, Luana was very receptive to my inquiries. We quickly settled on an agenda and Luana even arranged for transportation back and forth from Venezia. The actual tour was really great. Luana was extremely knowledgeable about the monuments in Ravenna, which really made them come alive. Luana was friendly and personable, everything you want in a guide. Our driver, Raffaelle, was right on time and effieciently moved us back and forth. Luana gets 5 stars for this tour. Grazie mille!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your kind review, John. It was my pleasure to guide you around Ravenna. I'm glad you enjoyed my tour. Saluta Becky! Ciao.
A wonderful way to be introduced to the World Heritage sites. Personal interactions are best. Thoroughly enjoyable tour. The time was perfect, 2 1/2 hrs. Luana has an extensive knowledge of the sites & excellent English sense of humour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, Chris. It was such a pleasure to meet you. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Luana did a great job of showing us Bologna and also recounting the history of the city. Luana is very pleasant and polite and goes out of her way to accommodate in whatever we want to know above and beyond our tour. The tour was informative so we got to know Bologna's history and culture a little better by the time Luana was finished with our tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judith, thanks a lot for your review. Give my regards to Ralph and Celeste.

Luana was such a lovely guide. Luana gave a great historical account of the evocative buildings, the historical Anatomical theatre & university amazing! Catching a train to Ravenna, despite the rain, Luana continued to provide excellent commentary on the monuments, in particular Basilica of San Vitale, walking along we passed Dante Alighieri's tomb. We ended the tour with a treat to a local mosaic artist, the heart of the history and identity of the community of Ravenna. Highly recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Simona, thanks a lot for your kind review. It was nice to meet you.
Mary PellegriniUnited States

Nancy BrownUnited States
Luana was a great guide for our 6-hour tour. She was very knowledgeable about not only the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which was the focus of our tour, but also shared a lot of information about Ravenna and it's fascinating - - and long history. Her timing was great - - she managed to get us to all the sites that we wanted to see at a pace that didn't feel rushed. Luana is very personable and her English is very good. I highly recommend this tour and Luana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Nancy!! I'm glad you enjoyed my tour. It was a pleasure to guide you throughout the city.
Luana was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and personable. Her commentary was most informative and she gave us many excellent suggestions for other things we might do at the conclusion of our tour. I would heartily recommend her for anyone who is visiting Ravenna.

On time, pleasant , knowledgable, energetic, personable. We both enjoyed her choices of what to see, and the information about them.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, David, for your kind review. I hope to see you back in Bologna.
Luana introduced us to the stunning mosaics of Ravenna. She explained the history of the mosaic works in detail, giving us lots of information we wouldn't have found out about if we'd just visited Ravenna on our own. Well worth taking this tour.

Margaret SapirUnited States
Luanna was very flexible about our scheduling time and meeting place. She knew exactly what to point out to us that we might not have seen ourselves. She followed up on my personal interest in meeting someone who makes mosaics and sells the tools. We packed a lot in. My husband and I are very happy she was available to give us a tour at the last moment.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Margaret! I'm very happy to know that you liked it. Please give my regards to your husband.

Luana is the best tour guide I've had in 40 years of traveling. She has boundless energy, a profound knowledge of the subject matter, including the religious iconology, is generous with her time and obviously cares about her clients. I will return to the region and have her guide me to the rest of the towns in the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jacqueline for so kind words!! It was great meeting you and Douglas!
