We enjoyed this tour very much. From the minute we were whisked away in the ban, our family of 5 had fun chatting with our wonderful driver. When we arrived, the tour itself included many interesting facts about balsamic vinegar and the production process. We were able to see many different areas of the production facility as well. And of course, the tasting at the end was my favorite part!

People are friendly, really nice driver on everything. Really to try absolutely
