    this was a WONDERFUL experience!! Natalie is so kind and went above and beyond to make sure we not only learned about olive oil, but also anything else that interested us in the room (a little about wine, a little about balsamic vinegars). Everything we tasted was sold at the sweet historic store that serves as the meeting point for the tasting. I HIGHLY recommend this if you’re in Verona. My family and I were only there for the afternoon and it was 100% worth our time!

    This was an amazing experience and my boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our time. Natalie had a lot of knowledge to share and was clearly very passionate which was fantastic. Natalie was also very welcoming and friendly which made the experience all the more enjoyable. We learnt a lot not only about how to taste olive oil but what to look out for when buying and how the different kinds pair with food. Being able to learn from someone like Natalie was great and all the oils and pairing food were delicious. Would definitely recommend this experience to my friends and family.

    This tour was not just an olive oil tasting! The information about how and where olive oil comes from was great, there was also information about how to taste and inspect olive oil, how to pair it with certain foods. Our guide was so passionate about the food and wine in Italy, she gave lots of information about the different foods produced in the region. I've done alot of tours, including wine tours and really enjoyed this experience, I would highly recommend it to anyone!
