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.

I had a nice time seeing all the different creatures. My niece enjoyed the touch experience. It is very dark inside and it would be helpful to have arrows or something on the floor to follow. Finding the exit was very difficult and had to go to the back of the museum to speak to someone then go back to the front to leave. Needs more signs.

The aquarium and FantaCinema were both great. I was shocked at how big the aquarium is, and the diversity of marine life they have there. I really didn't know what to exited from the FantaCinema, however, it is a great collection of movie memorabilia and my kids loved it.

quick entry to the aquarium and lunch at the fast-food Tender inside the aquarium quite satisfying. Lots of people and a bit of a queue to get a free table.

Beautiful, we did the guided tour "behind the scenes" and it was wonderful, I discovered things I did not know.
