Our guides made the trip great. Guido's encyclopedic knowledge of the region and especially the wines was complemented by Nick's historical knowledge. Most importantly, they are both really good guys and are fun to be around.

I was wowed every day all day long on tour. A spectacular experience! I was particularly struck by our time at Guido's farmhouse, the lunch with Gianni, and lunch at Castle Morasco. I could go on and on! As for our guides, both were phenomenal! And each offered unique perspectives that, added together, made for an unforgettable vacation. I was very satisfied with the customer service provided by my tour coordinator. He was always on top of things. He made it seem effortless to prepare for the trip by providing me with many different tips. His service level foreshadowed the phenomenal experience of the actual trip... that's impressive!
