A Recent Review of this tour

Alessandro was an exceptional guide. His knowledge of wines and EVO added to our tasting experiences. He had great local contacts for everything we wanted to do. He was extremely knowledgeable of the local history and explained things thoroughly as we went along. We enjoyed our tour immensely and would highly recommend him to anyone! Great job Alessandro!
