We had a great 2 hour tour with Sonia. We had a specific tour that we booked ahead of time and she had gone to the trouble to research everything that we had requested. She also gave us several suggestions for restaurants/local bars in our area in Turin which was very helpful...I am so glad that we had a local tour guide as our Italian is very limited and Sonia was very helpful getting our questions answered for our event. Grazie mille Sonia Janice and Greg Groff
Sonja is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Turin. We have had an amazing walk through the town and enjoyed both the relaxed (and relaxing) atmosphere of Piedmont's capital city and Sonja's well informed guidance. Sonja's recommendations about a location for lunch were excellent.
Sonia is very knowledgeable, speaks great French, English, and German, and she happily shares 'her' Torino with yoυ. Tante grazie! Matthias
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure !

Sonia took us on a fantastic tour around the city. We wanted to experience the history and culture of chocolate and pastry. She managed to keep eleven pastry graduates attention for three hours. We tasted some wonderful chocolates, pastries and more, met some fabulous artisans and even got behind the scenes in a wonderful bakery. We were on a three day educational trip and Sonia's friendly and engaging style had a lasting effect on as all and we will recall out tour over and over. Thankyou Sonia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure, very nice group !

Sonia was a great ambassador for both food and culture in Turin and the surrounding environs. Sonia spent the time to query my interests and then modulated the schedule to fit my interests. I appreciate the flexibility.

Sonia was able to put together a super look a the Egyptian Museum in Turin. We had a 4 hour layover between trains and luggage to store at the train station. Sonia came well prepared to introduce us to the museum highlights. She was familiar with the layout of the museum and the significant items to point out. She also communicated the meaning behind the symbolism inscribed on the art objects. We felt that we got good value for our rushed trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great, thanks !

Sonia had a last minute conflict so her colleague Louisa conducted this 2 hour tour in central Torino and was absolutely superb. She had tremendous knowledge of Torino history, architecture, culture, businesses, and was quite generous in sharing many of her favorite spots, including shops and restaurants. It seems almost impossible to grasp a city in a mere 2 hours but this tour covered the essentials and left one feeling comfortable and appreciative of Torino, past and present. Would recommend highly !
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute.
This was a really interesting and immersive tour by Sonia who was both very professional and friendly. I felt it was very tailored to what I was interested in and that I could ask for the tour to be flexible if I wished. As a woman travelling alone it was a really great way to see the city and get a feeling from a local of what the city was really about. I would highly recommend this tour and would certainly engage Sonia's services if I am ever in Turin again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Anita! By the way ... I have started using the boy-scout calender you bought for me. Ciao Sonia
We were very pleased with our guide Sonia! She speaks very good English and explained things very well. It was a nice cultural tour in the city. Big Thanks from UCON!
