Extravagant and engaging experience. Alessandro was a nice guide, he told us and sang Genoese anecdotes in the best way, making us walk in his company through the historic center of Genoa passing through alternative carucci. TRY IT

Super nice and amazing guy!!! Did a fantastic job giving us a tour of Genova. He made it fun and adventurous and even shared with us some original songs that he had made of the city and its history.

Best tour I ever experienced...personal...very professional....very new experience.....humor and good stories....I posted my experiences on facebook to share this fantastic tour

We saw a curious sperm whale, a school of striped dolphins leaping out of the water in our wake and 2 schools of tuna jumping in the waves. It was an exciting experience!

Saw a whale and lots of dolphins. The crew was perfect. Much told about the animals and driven carefully. Leave the dolphins after 20 minutes.
