The tour was extremly awesome. I am South Korean traveling with my parents, and this experience was one of the best we’ve done in Italy. Our guide was Leonardo. He was so kind and talented in telling stories about his hometown Valpolicella. Everything was so smooth that my parents also loved the tour so much. The wine and the foods were excellent and the scenery of winery was so beautiful. It was such a nice experience making friends with kind and smart Italians. The best guide and the driver. 부모님 모시고 한 투어였는데 너무나 친절하고 똑똑란 가이드님이 함께해주셨어요. 친절한 멋쟁이 기사님까지 정말 완벽한 투어였어요. 영어 되시는 분들은 정말 강추합니다.

This was a nice tour of a couple of wineries in the Valpolicella region. We were shown the production areas and explained how the wines are made. This was followed by a nice wine tasting including some meats and cheeses from the area to accompany the wines.

Wonderful introduction to the food of Verona. A visit to a shop selling fresh pasta was a delight. The meal we helped cook was delicious. Michela was warm and welcoming. Her English was excellent. It was a lovely afternoon.

Isabella did a wonderful job introducing us to the food and wine of Verona. We made five stops tasting or drinking the regions specialties. It was a fun and educational morning.

Well planned tour. The guide was knowledgable and a safe driver. The wine tour gave a lot of information and the wines were good. The lake was beautiful.
