Time well spent. Super-friendly guide provided us with some useful knowledge about the location. Amazing and very informative visit to the wine-cellar where you learn a little bit about the history of wine making in the region and taste lovely wines from a family-owned vineyard. 100% recommended!

Great Trip. Only the safety is a big point. Safetey of the Rollercoasters in the Park 0 of 5*. Safety of the bus ride on the way home 0 of 5*, there wouldnt even help the big Coffee the driver had before returning home after sleeping 9h in the bus waiting for customer to return

Unfortunately, there was no information anywhere that there was no option to choose a trolley in FerrariLand - we got into a random one, which for me is unacceptable, while using attractions of this type all over the world we had the option to choose.

I would repeat without hesitation. Very comfortable, easy and practical. Highly recommended.

The guide is super nice, one hour trips it was cool
