What people are saying about Cagliari

Great half day wine tour. Our guide, Franco, drove us around Cagliari, showing us some of the beautiful sites before driving us into the hills to a small boutique winery. We received a short but nice tour of the winemaking facilities and the vineyard. We enjoyed a wine tasting of local varietals, accompanied by a bounty of local bread, meats, cheeses, olives, etc. We returned to Cagliari after the tasting.

What great fun we had touring the city on Segways. We had not previously used Segways, but our host patiently trained us, and helped us throughout the tour. What a great way to see the city.

A fantastic tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable snd easily switched between Italian and English.
