Fun experience!

Karl was extremely nice and knowledgeable about Genoa and its history. He knows all the ins and out of Genoa and took me to places that I would have never found on the tourist maps. I was traveling solo for work, and I included this trip on my itinerary. I turned out to be on the only person on the tour! I thought that this might be a bit weird, but Karl is so personable, that I felt very comfortable, and we ended up having a great time. There was so much food and drinks on offer that I ended the day stuffed to the gills! I have taken a lot of walking tours around cities in Europe, and so far, this has been one of my favorites. Highly recommend.

Karl was a truly wonderful guide. He was extremely knowledgeable, funny, thoughtful, and generous with his time. (What we thought was going to be a 3.5 hour tour was 7.5 hours when all was said and done.) I would highly recommend this tour and if you get Karl, you will know you’ve been blessed.

This walking tour of Genoa was fantastic. Genoa truly is a city of hidden treasures. Karl is a masterful tour guide. He took us places that would never be found on a map or by touring the city on your own. He is an enthusiastic guide and his love of his city is contagious. This tour truly is customizable and Karl reads his audience well, able to adjust his itinerary based the daily conditions (super hot on our tour day) as well as the condition of his guests. I highly recommend this tour, a MUST for anyone visiting Genoa.

What a fantastic tour. Karl met us promptly at 10am at the train station and to our surprise it was just the 3 of us. This was one of the the best tours I have ever done. His knowledge of the city and his connection to the people made for a fantastic day. We walked a lot and it was a blazing hot day but Karl made sure we walked in the shade as much as possible and that we stayed well hydrated. He has an obvious passion for what he does and the place he lives in. I would not recommend this tour if you are not able to walk up and down stairs and hills, although, Karl will try to accommodate you as much as possible but Genoa by nature is very hilly. I had injured my knee the day before so it was challenging but he made sure that I was comfortable. The places he took us to eat were fantastic!

This tour was amazing! Karl, the tour guide was wonderful! He was very interesting, knowledgable and well traveled. This tour was private and completely customizable, if desired. He met us at the cruise ship to begin and returned us there at end the day. He spent the entire day with us, walking thru the city, stopping for some wine and a local snack and then to a fabulous lunch including more wine and dessert. Can only say positive things about this day. Would highly recommend to anyone!

My daughter and I missed this tour because she became ill. How ever my sister, and nephews did tour with Karl. THey relayed to us that there was a lot of walking, but it was the best tour they have ever done.. In addition, we had an issue of one member of the party needing to eat gluten free. Karl was able to accommodate that. I'm looking forward to actually doing this tour in the future.

Our tour guide was amazing!! Not only did we have a private tour which we were surprised about but he knew all the answers to most of the questions we asked. This was one of my favorite cities we visited in Italy. Partially because of its hidden beauties we went to places we would have never seen or found had it now been for our amazing tour guide!! I would recommend not only this tour but this city to everyone!! We would do this again in a heart beat!!
