A Recent Review of this tour

Ruben was an excellent guide through the city of Vicenza, taking into consideration the interests of each of our party. He adapted his tour to interest the engineers, historian, artist and Italophiles among us. Perhaps he has conducted this tour many times, but he was as enthusiastic to share his knowledge with us as he might have been the first time. Having Ruben guide us was like having a good, knowledgable friend show us around, as though he really cared that we enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot.
