The day was rainy and windy, but that didn't stop us! Cristina took us on a 3 hour walking tour to get a good perspective of the city and it's history. Much of the tour was walked under covered sidewalks all over Turin. Christina was personable and very knowledgeable. We had another tour the next day with a different guide (Cristina was not available). Cristina coordinated with the second guide, so as not to duplicate what we had already seen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Roberta! Very kind from you. The weather was not so good but we had a nice time and atmosphere.

This tour was the perfect start to our stay in Torino and we enjoyed the mix of history, religion, architecture and contemporary culture that Cristina introduced into the tour as we travelled through the city. Cristina was a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. At the end of the tour she gave us a series of maps and brochures for different attractions as well as ideas of what to do. We did 4 of the suggested activities but particularly enjoyed Film & Cinema museum and the view from Monte Cappuccini
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! Turin is a very interesting city and it was a real pleasure for me to show its beauties. Grazie!

We had so much fun with Cristina despite the weather not cooperating (rain and drizzle). Her ability to guide us around Torino and descriptions of the sites really brought the city alive for us. We also appreciated her willingness to answer our many questions. It was a pleasure to spend the morning with her - she is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Thank you, Cristina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Suzanne! I really appreciated our time together..despite the weather.

Cristina is a wonderful guide! She is knowledgeable--about history and art and architecture--but what is remarkable is her enthusiasm, her humor, her genuine love for her city. We learned a lot--and we enjoyed being with her. I highly recommend this tour and this tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so so much!!!! I enjoyed being with you. You were so curious about Turin, so interested in knowing as much as possible. It was a real pleasure for me. But you remember what I have told you....come back because I have only shown you the "skin" of the city. Ciao ciao!!
Richard LapinUnited States
Cristina was both an absolute delight and a supremely informative guide. She organized a highly customized tour, including hiring a car and driver, and made sure that we saw everything that was on our program. She communicated her love of Turin in an infectious way and with a great smile and laugh. The tour way over delivered for us, mostly because of Cristina. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So nice words. thank you!!
Barry LernerUnited States
We enjoyed walking on our own and then we met Cristina. She "opened" Turin in so many ways that were closed to us while on our own. The Jewish roots in Turin require a knowledable guide and Cristina revealed Turin's Jewish Heritage. Her knowledge and enthusiasm made the City come alive and gave us great insights and identified additional sites to go back and visit on our next trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie!! Thank you very much. A great day for me too...not only for my Birthday. Just add the right words to this marvellous city.
This was the first tour we did of the city of Torino. It brought the city and its history to life. We would never have been able to enjoy it in the same way without this introduction. Christina is unbelievably knowledgeable and friendly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nadia! Thank you so much for your so kind words. It was a real pleasure for me. Enjoy your stay in Turin
Cristina is a wonderful guide and we definitely recommend her services to everybody. She is fluent in english and in French, she is very knowledgeable, full of energy, flexible and kind. She is funny and always smiling.

Marion HagueUnited States
Cristina met us promptly in the morning outside our rented apartment. She was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Turin and it's famous sites. Her love of local food and products was fun when she took us through the Porto Palazzo market. She easily answered our questions and kept smiling through the rainy weather. Above all, it was clear that she loves showing people around the city of Turin. She was warm and friendly with a good sense of humor. We all thoroughly enjoyed her and our tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie grazie! You are so curious in knowing every single detail about Turin so it was a real pleasure for me. Ciao!
Suzanne De PaloUnited States
Cristina was MORE than accommodating when preparing our tour of Bience and Chiaverano, the towns which my cousins grandmother was from. In addition to planning a visit to both towns, Cristina arranged for us to have a private wine tasting in a vineyard in Chiaverano, as well as a luncheon in a restaurant where our cousin was touched to learn a little more about the town where his father lived until he was 14. We cannot thank Cristina enough for the trouble she went through to make the experience special
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Magic day! Thank you for all emotions I had. Ciao ciao Cristina
Suzanne De PaloUnited States
We were late for our first tour with Cristina but she was kind enough to rearrange her time, to accommodate us. Her love and knowledge of Torino was addictive. We hope to return soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne and all of you, I will be here waiting for you! Such nice days together. grazie!!! Cristina

Cristina is kind, patient, and genuinely a pleasure to be around. She is also funny! The whole package. Cristina knows Torino (and many other areas) and provides you with the knowledge, resources, and friendship required to succeed in a new area! I enjoyed my time immensely with Cristina and consider her a friend. You will too. Book with Cristina! I'm very glad I did.
