One of the best guided tours we have been on. The tour guide, Sophia, was very knowledgeable, considerate and entertaining. Sophia’s English was excellent and her anecdotes kept us all amused. The winery tours were very good and food and wine great. The river cruise was a nice way to relax after lunch. The coach driver, Daria, was polite and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.

Super fun and informative tour! Everything was well organized. Tiago and Dario were wonderful guides, very warm and knowledgeable. The lunch was amazing, as were the wines. An excellent value!

A very full day of seeing the countryside, having good wine and food, learning a little more about winemaking, cruising the river, and meeting interesting people.

A full day of pure beauty. Enjoy beautiful landscapes and delicious wines. We included the lunch. The food and dinning alfresco was just perfect.

Really enjoyed the visit to two wineries on the trip. The guide was good. It was great to know the process of wine making.
