What people are saying about Liguria

This was a very enjoyable tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable of not photography and Genova. I was taken to some of the lesser known but far more interesting sites of the city which made the tour far more engaging. Throughout the tour, I was taught some tips and tricks of street photography and given many opportunities to practice what I had been taught on the sites of the city. I started this tour with little knowledge of photography and left it with new skills to make any trip in the future more engaging. We enjoyed a traditional Genovese snack and was given a water bottle to commemorate the tour. I would highly recommend this trip to anybody who wants to experience Genova from a different perspective and who wants to learn a new skill.

Our cooking class with Tomaso went very well. His apartment was 10 minutes walk from our hotel. We wanted to learn how to make pasta. We were served: gnocchi, maltagliati and stuffed mezzaluna hold no secrets for us. I was with my 2 teenagers (14 and 17). They participated well and were happy with the experience. Tomaso is a rather discreet but very well organized host. He had concocted some good sauces for us to enhance the pasta and we had lunch at his place. We warmly recommend this activity.

What a delightful experience! Before this class we were just mild fans of pesto, but now we can’t wait to make this for friends and family! Now we know what quality pesto is supposed to taste like, not the jarred things at grocery stores or the mess that we’d whip together in our blender. Our host was so sweet and the pesto bites and wine tastings were so delectable. A highlight of our trip to that area, even better than our time in Cinque Terre!

Fun and educational course. Nice introduction to good flavors.

Great course and very tasty! The 1 hour is worth it!
