The tour was great! Booked it on the first day of the holiday and I am so happy about it. Kevin, the local guide, gave much interesting info about the town, the history, and also useful tips while staying in Alghero. His English is great, since he's half Italian half British. Definetely recommend it!

Amazing home-cooking experience. Lovely host, Irene, showing us how to make different types of pasta. Explaining the importance of each step and the tools needed. Great location and a mouth-watering meal together afterwards. An activity you won't forget. Grazie Mille!

Michelle and the other family members were great. Attentive to safety and comfort. The place is just beautiful. The lake and the beach are nature at its best at this time of the year.

Fabulous experience! Waze and google Maps got us lost on the way there though. Would totally do it again.

The explanations about the different types of wine were great.
