I took this tour to visit the Franciacorta winery. I was planning to go to OUTLET Mall after visiting the winery for the first time, but first go to OUTLET to eat the lunch included in the price, and then only those who wish to go to the winery. The bus to the winery departs at 14:00. On this day, I was the only person who wanted to visit the winery. The bus will wait until the tour is over. The winery is contracted with OUTLET and the neighboring Franciacorta producers are supposed to accept guests on a monthly basis. We walked through the vineyards while listening to the producers' explanations, showed us brewing equipment and cellars, and sampled two Franciacorta. It was very tasty and the price was reasonable, so I bought one of the top class bottles. After that, I returned to OUTLET and enjoyed shopping until the departure time, but it was a good opportunity to procure souvenirs. I think this price is good value with lunch.

We were the only participants that day and therefore had a private tour. The bus driver was very friendly. The tour of the winery was super interesting and the wine was good too. The food was good quality. The outlet was also worth it. In my opinion 2-3 hours are absolutely sufficient in the outlet.
