Tour: #89525, Genoa, the "Proud" City - City tour and and wine tasting, Genoa, Liguria, Italy    view tour
Date: Oct 2/18

Michela met us at our cruise ship exactly as planned (family of 5 - 2 parents and 3 adult children). We had a walking tour of the city which focused on the Palaces (which turns out are different then expected). Michela was extremely knowledgeable and got us into places that most people walked by. We ended our tour in the old city with a glass of wine and delicious pastries all provided by Michela. Great tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very very much Sandy! I am so happy to know you enjoyed the city! Hope to meet you again in the future Michela

Michela did a wonderful job leading the 7 of us (3 kids) around a nice walking tour of Genoa. She is VERY knowledgeable on all of the sites, locations, arrangements and history of Genoa. Our tour includes sampling the local food and wine (very yummy!) and she had chosen a route that was easy enough for the children to learn and enjoy. Michela answered all of our questions and all of the taxi travel was included in the price of the tour!! Very nice day and a very wonderful city!! We would highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU! Happy to know you liked the city ... and the food as well. I also liked the sunny Easter morning I spent with you and the kids! All the best, Michela

Michela is a superb guide and made our day in Genoa a tremendous success and pleasure. She is incredibly knowledgeable and so willing to share the wonders of her fantastic city in all of its glory. From a guiding "technique" standpoint, Michela made sure that we saw all that we had planned plus some other stops that were not in the program and were special treats. Get fantastic disposition also contributed to a great day. Thanks, Michela!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU both, dear R&J! Hope to meet you again!

Great tour with a fantastic tour guide. The highlight was the tour of the private home. Our guide was so knowledgeable, kind and patient (we had our 11 year old grand-daughter with us) . We saw everything in Genoa which is just a wonderful city. I highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shannon, I thank you very much! I had a great time with you and your family and I am very very pleased to hear you liked Palazzo Montanaro and Genoa. All the best, Michela

Date: Jul 23/17

Michela is a wonderful guide with such knowledge of Genoa, Portofino and all of the beautiful towns along the way. We really enjoyed our time with her and my husband will tell you it was his favorite day of our vacation (which included France, Spain and Italy!) Michela sets a very nice pace for both learning and seeing as much as you can of the area. Even our 15 year old was enthralled the entire visit. We are ready to come back!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Katherine, it's marvellous to hear this was the favourite day of your cruise! Thank you so much and do come back! Michela

Tour: #89586, Unexpected Nervi: Mediterranean nature and the Wolfsoniana, Genoa, Liguria, Italy    view tour
Date: Jun 27/17

I chose this tour to have someone take us to a more out of the way place, away from the downtown area, and we were not disappointed! The walks overlooking the sea are stunning, as are the rough cliffs below. We would have gone further but for the heat, so Michela took us to two very lovely small museums, the Wolfsonian Design museum and the Nervi Museum of Modern (19th century) Art, housed in a beautiful 19th century mansion. Michela was informative and thoughtful of our needs throughout. A great guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again, Margaret! All the best!

Michela was an excellent guide to the city, enthusiastic and very well informed. She took us inside some buildings not generally open to tourists. She also accommodated our walking speed and resting requirements. She even extended the time in order to show us some places of importance. We're looking forward to a different tour with Michela tomorrow!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Margaret! I'm looking forward to meeting you tomorrow as well!

We had a wonderful time with Michela, very knowledgeable and a treat to wonder the city with. We probably would have missed most of the architecture without the admonition to "look up".

Michela was an exceptional guide. She was very knowledgable on the Genoa historic sites. She also arranged a driver and van for us to go to Portofino and took us to an amazing lunch in Genoa. I recommend Michela as a professional guide for the Genoa area. She was excellent!

If you have toured the city of Genoa and are looking for a contrasting experience then this walk along a lovely promenade by the sea and in the parks and museums of Nervi is a great way to spend a relaxing morning. Michela is very knowledgeable about her city and its surroundings and was excellent at explaining the works of art we saw as well. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Christine! I had a great time with you and your friends. Happy to know you liked my beloved Nervi!

Date: Oct 16/15

Best guide so far on our 14 day trip in Milan, lake como, and chinque terre. Very informative yet casual and down to earth. Learned not only about the history and cultural part of the town but also introduced us to the daily life of locals, specialty food, market and helped tremendously with translation. Four hour tour was a leaisirely stroll through new and old towns, and included time I browse old shops and a small coffee break (included in tour!). Highly recommend and wish all tour guides are like her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear friends! I loved touring Genoa with you all. Being a guide offers me the best opportunity to meet nice people and to share the "spirit" of my city. I hope to meet you again, Michela

Michela agreed to fill on for our booked guide. She did a great job of helping us understand Genoa old town. She is very knowledgeable and she took great care for our comfort and special needs. She gave us a great overview so we could return and explore sites on our own. We would certainly recommend her to our friends.

Michela is such a fantastic & informative tour guide that on my return to Genoa, will DEFINITELY ask for her again. Michela not only was very patient with me, she took that extra care to understand my pace & me. My tour was made that extra pleasant because of Michela. She even made extra inquiries with the taxi driver & did not choose just a random driver to drive us around. THANK YOU MICHELA....

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Naoami, it was just wonderful to meet you and to spend some time together. I really really hope to meet you again and I'll be more than happy to show you more of my town and its surroundings! Thank you and ARRIVEDERCI!!!
