This wine tour was excellent from start to finish! Our guide, Mario is a sommelier and extremely knowledgeable about the region and it's wines. We visited 2 small, family run vineyards and learned different aspects of the wine making process at each. The wines we tasted were excellent! So good in fact that we ordered a case at each vineyard to be shipped home! The restaurant we were taken to for lunch was also very good with lots of charm and great food. Many locals eating there at our read Saturday - always a good indication. Mario met us at the meeting point right on time and dropped us off a little closer to Venice so we would have a shorter walk. He also took us to a small deli to pick up some of the cheese and meats we had enjoyed during the wine tasting. Overall, this was an exceptional day that we would highly recommend! Mario was early arriving at the
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!
Having been on a few day tours, i appreciate the difficulty in getting the balance right as to how much time is allocated to each area. I think this tour goes close to achieving that balance although possibly another half hour in Verona would have been good.
All three of us agreed that this was one of the best excursions ever!! The winery and grounds were beautiful, the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable and the wines were delicious! We would encourage everyone to experience this delightful tour!
Fantastic experience. Sirmione was beautiful. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. We also took a boat trip round Lake Garda. Thoroughly recommend.
