Can I post a million pictures? Can I say a million things? This tour was truly fantastic, please don't hesitate to book it. My group consisted of three people other than myself and they were all lovely. Our tour guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable on the area (a well-traveled local) and of course all things Prosecco. The two vineyards were beautiful and both offered food to have alongside the Prosecco tastings. Both the food and Prosecco tastings were incredible. I really can't express enough how lovely everything was. If you want to see some of Veneto's mainland, learn about the local culture behind Prosecco or get day-tipsy while eating beautiful cheese in the mountains of Italy, book this tour.

This tour with my significant other was literally 2 years ago. We still talk about how amazing the instructor, food, wine and history was. This memory was precious. The food/wine quality was incredible and so was the amount they gave us. We were not only extremely full and a bit tipsy. We loved the culture. I really wish I remembered the man's name. He was phenomenal. Made Italy feel like a dream. Thank you!

Carolyn was super nice and had lots of great stories to share. The food we made was delicious and she was even kind enough to print off the recipes and send them over to us after the class! Great experience!

This wine tour was exceptional! The guide and the staff at the wineries were so kind, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. This tour was the highlight of our trip and I would recommend it to anyone!

My guide Mario was extremely knowledgeable and a joy to talk to. Excellent local knowledge.
