Ruben met and exceeded our expectations. He met us promptly and took care of all the details leading us to Padua from our cruise ship in Venice. In the brief time allowed in the Screvegni Chapel he pointed out the most interesting features of Giotto's frescos. He then led us on a walking tour of the main squares of Padua describing each of the most important buildings. When it was time for us to leave to return to Venice Ruben took us to the platform for the train. His English is very good.

Reuben was wonderful! We sorted ourselves out via email and the tour was perfectly customized and even better than I had hoped for. Reuben is bright, friendly and knowledgeable and it was a happy and educational and entertaining four hours together. I highly recommend Reuben.

Ruben went out of his way to assist us with all of our needs. He was extremely knowledgeable about Vicenza, Palladio, and art. He has a warm personality and was fun. We all highly recommend getting a guide for Vicenza and having Ruben as your guide. He took us to Trattoria Al Pestello for lunch and that was a very special treat.

Thank you Ruben.

Dave, Crispy, and Lon.

We had a good tour with Ruben. We were particularly keen on the Jewish heritage in Padua. He was knowledgable about this, perhaps not with the depth that our guides of similar sites in other Jewish heritage cities. He was very pleasant
