Simonetta provided us with an exceptional tour. Simonetta spoke good English, was very interesting and friendly. She adapted the afternoon to give us what we wanted:- e.g. taking taxi to the top of hill, visiting an authentic espresso cafe, vising interesting streets which are off the tourist track. I now wish we'd spent three days in Trieste with a day trip to Venice rather than the other way round (which we did). Simonetta shows us a lot of good things in Trieste. Thank you so much again Simonetta!
Simonetta, a very thorough trip from Trieste to Mira Mare to Acquilea with a brief stop in Palmanova. Our tour members were very impressed with your local knowledge of history, religion, art and culture. Well worth the long day we put in. Thanks

Simonetta is a creative, witty, and warm host. We were swept into the history, art, and culture of Trieste under Simonetta's generous and elegant lead. From Roman to Contemporary, Simonetta was knowledgeable. In addition to being a great guide, Simonetta is great company. It is hard to imagine a more enjoyable companion in touring this unique and magical city. Simonetta is wonderful in every way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very kind words. You and Wendy are very nice and sensitive people and very pleasant and stimulating company. I also loved being with you and I hope our paths will cross again one day.

We truly enjoyed our tour with Simonetta. Her flexibility and knowledge made our afternoon delightful. Trieste was more interesting than we expected. It was a good idea to taxi up to the Roman ruins and fortress and to walk down the hillside.
This was exactly the tour we wanted....Simonetta has excellent english, set a nice pace, delivered the right amount of information and was very knowlegable - we had lots of questions and she knew the answers to all of them...impressive. She was attentive to our needs and the tour lasted longer than expected...simonetta did not rush off and wanted to make sure we covered all the "sites". A perfect 3 hour introduction to Trieste and its intriguing history. Many thanks
