Our company most precious values are:
Attention to detail. Every guest is different, so paying attention to detail is crucial to give each guest their perfect tour.
Excellence. Our goal is to provide an excellent service, from the first moment you contact us to the end of the tour. We strive to be the best. If you feel there is room for improvement, please let us know: we’ll take your opinion very seriously.
Knowledge. We are here to pass on our knowledge to you, in a way that is informative but also fun and family-friendly. We want you to enjoy yourself while naturally learning about our city.
Passion. We are passionate about our city and our job, and we want to share this enthusiasm and love with you. If by the end of your tour you are as passionate as we are about what you’ve visited, we’ll have reached our goal.
Honesty. We are aware that booking online can feel risky: you don’t know us yet and may not have personal references about us. This is why transparency and honesty is vital for us and we’ll do anything to create trust between us: that’s the best base for a perfect start.
