Best and tastiest tour!

Karl is a delightful guide, a treasure trove of Genoa's history, and THE person to lead you around the city! He shared centuries of history, gave us tours around and through many places we could not have accessed on our own, and treated us to some true culinary delights! Sidling up to focaccerias, cafes, museums, etc, Karl is your clearly well-known and well-loved fast pass to all of the things that make Genoa delightful.

Karl is an outstanding tour guide. I looked through a lot of tours for this part of our trip because we have been to Genoa several times. The thing that made me chose this tour had a lot to do with the reviews. Especially their description of Karl. They were spot on. Karl is all you could want in a tour guide. Professional, knowledgeable and he pays attention to every detail. We adored our tour. I highly recommend him

Absolutely the best tour!! We saw things we never would have found or had access to on our own. Karl’s knowledge of the history and politics of Genoa is extensive and really brought the city to life! Food was amazing and it was the most fantastic day!

Great way to start a stay in Genova

We loved our tour. We could have wandered around Genova for days to see so many interesting sites. Karl is a high energy guy that loves Genova. He even extended the tour by an hour to show us some extra stuff and give us advice on a self directed tour we could do. Over all all four of us loved the tour. It is an excellent start to any stay in Genova. We had a little difficulty finding him in the busy train station. Try to arrive 10 minutes early

Now I know Genoa better

I had a truly wonderful day with Karl, an energetic and knowledgeable guide who is passionate about Genoa. A perfect tour for me, combining history, architecture and food. We stopped for caffè, gelato, vino, and a relaxing lunch. Karl introduced me to farinata, a local street food that is gluten-free, and I could enjoy. We wound our way through the fascinating streets, Karl always eager to explain another fact. He pointed out features of buildings I never would have noticed, and took me inside some palazzi and churches to see their incredible opulence. He spent extra time with me and was a most accommodating guide. Truly memorable.

:-) buongiorno Giovanni. Well , too kind of you. I enjoy myself very much as we had a brilliant conversation and you knew " Mirto " ;-). Keep travelling and enjoying life, as you said is short :-). Ciao Giovanni and happy you liked Farinata . Grazie mille per la tua visita. Ciao :-)

Karl knows the history of Genova! We spent a great afternoon, walking narrow streets and alleyways, and viewing the architecture. He took me to a excellent focaccia restaurant, where they served very generous portions. Enjoyed a glass of Prosecco (well 2). Another benefit of taking this tour, meeting locals and learning about daily life in this city I can’t recommend this tour, enough. Enjoy

Karl provided my friends and I with a wonderful introduction to Genoa, its food, history , and people. He was informative about Italy and informed about the USA. This was probably one of the best day tours we have taken on our travels.

Karl was the most amazing guide! This was by far the best tour we experienced on our vacation. The group consisted of my husband and I, our daughter and another family of 3. We learned so much, saw so much and genuinely enjoyed the entire day. It is a perfect cruise excursion as everything was within walking distance. Genoa is a beautiful city, with rich culture, amazing history and delicious food!

Best Part of Genoa
Rebekah R

This tour was the best part of Genoa. It was just me, my boyfriend and Karl. He was sooooo knowledgeable. We learned so many interesting things, saw great architecture and hidden treats of Genova that we would not have found ourselves. It was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip. We wished it had been the first thing we did when we got off the plane. He was never without answers to our many queries, was willing to stay late with us and just have coffee and talk to us more. I honestly cannot recommend this tour enough. Please book it!

Dear Rebecca you are too nice :-) . it was my pleasure and to talk to you was very interesting as you are one of the smartest brain i met. Your Boyfriend also, and the perfect relaxed athmosphere of Genoa, made the rest :-). Ciao and hope to See next year in Asia or Sardinia. Thank you so much . K
