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.

Very nice activity. The guide very pleasant. We enjoyed freedom in each of our actions during the day. Gorgeous Bergamo! The dinner at the lake restaurant in Iseo fantastic! The visit to the vineyard is worth the trip. Everything was wonderful!
