A Recent Review of this tour

Ruben is a very good guide. He has considerable knowledge of architecture, art and history. His knowledge extends beyond Vicenza and was thereby able to put into context the work of Palladio with what was happening elsewhere in Italy at the time. His language skills are superior and he answered all our questions completely and clearly. We highly recommend Ruben and will contact him the future.
