We had the best experience with our brilliant tour guides Ricardo and Manuel, an absolutely amazing, fun and exhilarating 2 hour tour! Very easy to drive and felt extremely safe throughout whilst also taking our breath away. They also were really helpful in giving us some tips for the rest of our time in Italy which was much appreciated. If you’re considering booking just do it, you won’t regret it! Thank you so much

Excellent tour! We had a great captain. Purchased extra bottle of wine at the wine tasting, 8.50 Euro. Trip was as advertised. Definitely rate as a Recommend.
