Two beautiful places not to be missed .I know everybody like to go to Lake Como but there is something unique about Lake Garda .With Verona we were lucky to have visited Juliet's balcony early before the crowd built up . My compliments to our guide Sylvia . She was knowledgeable well spoken and very attentive

Great tour and was lovely to see Verona and the Roman area - the Juilet balcony area was extremely busy but was good that the tour guide showed us were to go and then left us with the option to visit in our spare time. Loved Lake Garda and actually preferred this lake for the water views and more relaxed then Lake Como - if I had the option to only visit one lake whilst in Milan it would be Lake Garda

This was a fun trip. Our group was fairly large, but it was still fun. The whole Juliet's balcony experience with all the people was fun and seeing one of Rome's Colosseums there was also neat. The best part was the Lake Garda boat ride. Our captain was very entertaining and it was a refreshing way to end the day.

The tour was very informative about both visits. The tour leader made sure she provided us with knowledge about the history of Verona and Lago di Garda and was very helpful. Both places are majestic. Verona is a beautiful city which i fell in love with. Lago di Garda provides views of the Austrian mountains. Both provide a really nice walking tours

We booked this trip as a secondary trip so we were not expecting too much. But we were more than pleasantly surprised. Verona its very nice town, with beautiful landscapes and buildings, many shops, good restaurants. The Verona guide was really good, very knowledgeable and provided many information. The lake Garda was another nice part of the trip, we didnt take the boat ride after reading other reviews and we were happy we didnt. It gave us more time to enjoy the town and lets say a speed boat its not really our thing. Overall, with the exception of the bus which was not very comfortable, leg room as in a plane all was perfect.

Early start but well worth the effort. Walking tour of Verona is amazing, guide gives you little facts you wouldn't get wandering alone. The main piazza is beautiful place to enjoy a meal and drinks. Garda too was lovely and picturesque. For €10 the boat trip is definitely worth it. Excellent day !

This was a wonderful day spent in the most beautiful part of Northern Italy. After a comfortable drive we arrived in the medieval city of Verona and had an interesting walk through the city. We visited Juliette's balcony which is quite disappointing and rather small and overly touristy. We then visited the Roman amphitheatre which is similar to but smaller than the Colisseum in Rome. Ther are lots of excellent restaurants in Verona and we had a very good lunch. Then it was onto Lake Garda which is very beautiful and scenic. The tour included a boat ride on the lake but it was an uncovered boat and my wife would have been too cold in this type of boat. This was a pity and should be looked at for future trips. Nevertheless we enjoyed a walk through the little town and would definitely recommend this trip to future travelers.

Verona is a really charming city, with unique historical and cultural dimensions. The guide had really good English and could easily be understood, making it more possible to follow up and inform oneself about several features that this city brings, ranging from architectural beauties, to Piazza delle Erbe, to the arena, and the mysterious Juliet balcony. A must do if visiting the Veneto region in Italy!

Great trip. Verona tour guide was good and we had some free time to walk on our own which was great. The best surprise of the trip was the Lake Garda trip where we stopped at Sirmione which was amazing. Highly recommend this tour

The tour was well organized with knowledgeable guides. The local guide in Verona was exceptional! Time was given to enjoy the cities or have a leisurely bite to eat...found a place with great food frequented by locals down a side street in Verona. We were given an option to have a boat ride on Lake Garda. It turned out to be a speed boat going around the peninsula for the old city portion of Sirmione. I would have preferred spending more time walking in the old city.

Verona was like visiting a story book city. Seeing Juliet's balcony and realizing it was a true story is unbelievable! The arena was incredible! This tour is a must!!

Loved this tour, what a fantastic tour guide. I got myself into a troubling situation and the tour guide kindly helped me out and resolved the situation, thank you Mauricio! Even gave me tips on what to see in Milan on the way back from this trip. Verona was so pretty, great walking tour. The Lake Garda was very beautiful too, perhaps a bit more time in the Lake Garda would have been better. We were well looked after. Highly recommend this tour!

Bus driver brilliant and polite, bus guide interesting, attentive and quietly protective in the city subtly kept an eye and track of tour members. Verona City guide just exceptional very knowledgeable but more importantly passionate. He grew up in Verona and was very clever and humorous with his delivery. Garda was stunning and the bus brings you to what feels like a very exclusive point of the lake, an area I would never afford to stay so unlikely to see otherwise. If you have a spare day during you time in Milan this so worth your money. Just like to add me and my partner are 24-25, upon booking were unsure whether the pace might be too slow as we have not done this style trip before, but was very enjoyable. Only slight thing to improve is we would have liked more time to explore the roman ruins in Garda, however this was probably not down to the organisers as we were stuck in traffic due to an accident on the motorway. This lost time may have been exactly what we needed All in all brilliant day and certainly a highlight of our trip in North Italy.

This was a fun trip from Milan our guide was very good. Verona is an interesting old city and the city guide was very good. Juliet's house is tacky and touristy but we enjoyed the walk through this old city. The Lake Garda part was a highlight of the trip, especially since we were able to take a short boat ride on the lake. We had some down time in Sirmione and great gelato. Definitely a worthwhile trip.
