    Great tour with lots of good food in a nice atmosphere

    We were really lucky with our tour. We had a private tour (only 2 people) and thus the great opportunity to enjoy the country, the people and the great food together with our tour guide. Tip: under no circumstances eat anything beforehand, otherwise you won't have a chance to enjoy all the delicacies.

    A nice afternoon where we could taste a lot. The guide gave lots of information and tips for the following days. It is definitely worth the effort and the money to do this. Sufficient food we were completely full. Top activity.

    This tour is not recommended. It was an expiry of 6 stores and the money is in no way value for money. There was no background information or even a city tour. Our guide was extremely helpful and friendly, unfortunately he was not trained, informed or even instructed. Only the tasting of olive oil went as you would imagine. We were very disappointed, there was no breakfast or coffee.
