This excursion was worth all that we paid for it! We had a very busy trip up until this point and this was such a pleasant change. Very low key, very well organized. Our drivers were very kind and very helpful, but they were not “tour guides”. They would drop us off and give us a time to meet back up, which was totally perfect for us and allowed us to prioritize what we wanted!

un'esperienza straordinaria, punto d'incontro facile, guide Nicolo, attentive and molto amichevole. La cantina sensazionale ei prodotti di prim'ordine, il sommelier Diego, mi hanno fatto enter a mondo di scoperte sulla produceione di vini e spumanti.

This was a fabulous tour, with beautiful scenery, wonderful food and delicious wine. My driver and guide was very friendly and helpful. The sommelier who guided the wine tour was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and fun to talk with.

Francesca was outstanding in her attentiveness to our needs, even going so far as to bring back one of our party to Bergamo due to an issue, then picking us up on a second trip. I only wish the gift shop at the winery had been open!

The guide and driver were VERY nice. The towns, lunch and wine tour excellent!! Only positive things!! My husband and I loved it!!
