This was an excellent tour. Beautiful countryside. It was a great introduction to wine from this region.
Waste of time and money. Took 1 1/2 hours to get to the winery and two hours to get back from Verona. The tour guide only spoke to the 2 passengers in the front seat and had such a soft voice that the three of us in the back couldn't hear a thing. When we asked him to speak louder his answer was the he could not talk and drive at the same time. At 356.80 for two persons, this is unacceptable. There should have been an additional tour guide to fill the time on facts of the region.
This was an excellent tour from Venice. It took a little over an hour to get to the winery. Met the owner of the winery and then took a tour of their process ending with a wine tasting of their wines. We then proceeded to Verona where we had several hours to have lunch and visit a few of Verona's sites. Our tour guide was excellent and very personable. We spend 2 weeks in Europe and this was one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in wine.
Really really loved these places we visited and the vineyard was magnificent. However Could definitely have done with some input from the driver which was totally missing. Met some other great people from other parts of the world. LOVE this part of Italy and cant wait to visit again someday
