We’ve never been to wine tasting, but are definitly going again after this experience! Anna Maria was really good at explaining (in english) all about the wines, and also had a history introduction about Sardinia! The wines and the scenery are absolutely worth a visit.

It was a wonderful experience. Snorkeling and seeing the vivid fish were really fantastic and magical Adventures. Our day in Sardinia was made to remember by Antonio because he is such a kind, fun, and enjoyable person. Highly recommended tour.
