The experience was excellent! The only problem was meeting our driver, in fact he is not allowed to wait for you in the taxi area, as indicated in the docs, we received! He waited at the gallia hotel, so there was s bit of a hiccup to get in touch with him, as the phone was picked up by his manager, not the driver, goodness gracious!!!! In the end we found him, after couple calls. The driver himself was wonderful, so understanding and reserved, we appreciated this, indeed!!!
Our tour was exactly what we wanted. We were staying in Venice and had been there before. This time we wanted to visit Verona and sample some good wine. We met our guide by the transportation center and had a short walk to his car. He pointed out local highlights in Veneto as we drove to Verona where we had a very nice tour. Following that we headed to a small winery and following a tour by the owner we sampled some of their excellent wines. Great day!
It was a birthday present for my dad during our 4-day stay at Sirmione and it was an amazing feat, thanks to our guide/boat captain Alex. We saw the eastern shore of the Garda Lake with its towns and castles, tasted some wine of Veneto, swam in the pristine waters of the lake and enjoyed the speedy ride. The day went perfect!
definetly worth it. Felt like I had got my moneys worth on the bus alone then the lunch and wine was delicous . Staff were fantastic resturant & bus . Then the tour of the wineyard was also fantastic ,lovely wine and views and the girl showing us round was such a lovely person and helpful :)
It was such a fun class. Very hospitable and lovely host got us together and thought us how to make ravioli, tagliatelle and Tiramisu. After we finished cooking, we ate with our food with some wine and took shots of munchello afterwards. I would definitely recommend this activity.
