Irena was our tour guide and she was charming, a local and loved Verona, herself, and it showed. This is a wonderful tour to get an overview of Verona so you can see where you want to explore on your own. Irena was informative and I learned a lot, especially about the Juliette Balcony! I highly recommend this tour. There is a lot more to Verona than I realized and you get that on this tour. It was nicely paced.

This tour covers a significant portion of the city, but one primarily sees sites from the outside. For example, the tour does not include entrance to the Verona Arena, only a brief commentary from outside. However, the guide did provide serviceable, if not scholarly, commentary on the sites. The walk is lengthy but it includes a number of pauses so it is not too taxing .

This tour was a lot of money and our tour guide lacked flare which made it difficult to concentrate.
It was also expensive, there were no visits included in the price, we stood outside places.
It would have been also nice if our guide gave us a toilet stop or drink stop too.
Verona is beautiful.

Wolfe was a gracious and charming guide with lots of local knowledge. Enjoyed the tour, but there was a lot of walking through some dense crowds. Not a relaxing tour. But worth the time.

Francesca was incredibly knowledgeable and well-informed about the city and its history. She provided an enjoyable and well-organized tour while engaging both personally and professionally with our small tour group. We highly recommend this tour as it provided insight and information about Verona that we would have otherwise missed. Special thanks to Francesca!

The meeting point was in the middle of a small street. Tour was a waste of time. A lot of walking. Did not visit many sites.
