Ettore hat uns besondere Orte gezeigt und erklärt, durch die wir die Geschichte und Kultur Genuas kennenzulernen und verstehen konnten. Bei Fragen unsererseits wusste er immer bescheid. Super!

Highly recommend taking this tour with Ettore, if you are visiting Genoa. It was an amazing experience learning about this city. Ettore made it fun by showing us the history and unique hidden gems of Genoa.

Ettore is a very dedicated and professional guide. As I had the good fortune to be his only customer that off-season winter day I had the luxury of delving into his deeper knowledge of Genovese history. A delight for me as he revealed Genova's spendour along with the intrigue of the rival clans. I highly recommend him as I doubt very much one would find a better guide and historian of a friendly nature.

Ettore demonstrated a rare level of professionalism and knowledge. He is charming, easy going but at the same time he offered a unique insight into history of Genova. He brought us to a number of fascinating places that we never would be able to find ourselves. We highly recommend Ettore as an expert private guide with the real passion for his work

This was a fascinating tour. Ettore has uncovered unique spots within the narrow winding streets of Genoa that are sometimes magical, sometimes tinged with sadness, often surprising, and always with historical meaning. I was impressed by Ettore's knowledge of Genoa. I enjoyed the tour very much and appreciated that at the end of the tour, Ettore provided a map of Genoa and suggestions for more places to visit. It was a unique experience.
