Raffaele was a great guide, he made the tour to fit our needs and expectations. He was extremely knowledgeable about Naples and its history, both ancient and more recent and was able to share it in a positive and enlightening manner that kept my 8 year old, 14 year old and the parents engaged and entertained. We learned a lot and enjoyed the tour very much.

Alessandra è stata stupenda. ci siamo innamorati di lei e lei ci ha davvero fatto innamorare di Napoli e dei napoletano. Preparatissima sia sui luoghi di interesse e sulla parte storica, sia sulle tradizioni napoletane ...che racconta con tanta simpatica ironia e allegria...Sa dosare alla perfezione la parte più impegnativa (storica) con quella divertente..per rendere sempre piacevole la conversazione. Per me una fantastica esperienza. Alessandra è in assoluto la migliore guida che abbia mai avuto nel mondo...se penso a come vorrei la guida turistica perfetta....ecco.....la vorrei esattamente come Alessandra!! questa esperienza è stata proprio TOP!!!!!CONSIGLIATISSSSSSSIMA!
