    Too much time spend in Genoa with only one hour and a half in Portofino. Use another company skip Viator they don't stand behind its customers. Waste of money.

    A very long but well balanced day, The walking tour of Genoa was very interesting with plenty of opportunity for photos, free time and lunch at Santa Margharita then a boat ride and a visit to Portofino. The bus trip included a convenience stop in both directions.

    Marquela was great! Everything was so beautiful and well planned thank you as always. You guys def made me want to come back

    Would not recommend this to anyone. The cities were beautiful but our tour guide ruined our experience with how rude and short he was. It was obvious how much he hated his job. He had no patience for anyone and didn’t seem to care much for how the group was feeling. Our radios broke on our tour and instead of being sensitive to how he explained thing at each stop, he kept it moving and we didn’t learn anything on our tour. This was the case for most people in the group which had to be close to 30 ppl. Find another tour agency!!!

    One of the best - this was with Zani Viaggi - I so loved our local Genovese guide - Antonella - a true professional - I felt like being back at school participating in hands-on History lessons as we walked through scorching summer heat - was so worth all the lessons I learned today on Genova's history and many more tidbits!! Grande!

    Genoa is not worth visiting, it's basically a commercial port with very little historical buildings to see.. Portofina is very nice and lovely place to visit

    Although Genova 2-hour walking tour with Natasha was good way to learn about the town, but many of the places were under renovation and the fact we had to watch out for many vehicles detracted from the experience. Kudos to the team for always making the big group stayed together and no one was left behind. Having cooled bottle water on the tour bus for us after the Genova walking tour was a nice amenity, because it was an extremely hot day. santa margherita ligure and portofino were beautiful places. Personally, I would have loved to spend more time in either of those places than Genova. Finally, I loved the clear instructions on meeting time for the ferry rides. Our tour guide even does a head count to make sure everyone is accounted for. Bravo!!! What would have made the tour better for me was giving me options to cool off in santa margherita ligure and portofino because it was a uncomfortably hot day (I am from SF where it is foggy most days).

    Tour guide was great and friendly. I was presently surprised by the destinations. Santa margarita and portofino were beautiful.

    This company were so professional to deal with. They had great coaches and staff and our guide on the day made sure we were all looked after. He even made sure we knew how to contact the company if we got lost…. The day itself was great. Probably could have done with more time in Portofino but as it’s a long distance from Milan, it’s not possible.

    Great scenery, long bus ride but well worth it. The old town of Genoa was brilliant. Santa Marguerita and Portofino were spectacular.
