This tour was not just an olive oil tasting! The information about how and where olive oil comes from was great, there was also information about how to taste and inspect olive oil, how to pair it with certain foods. Our guide was so passionate about the food and wine in Italy, she gave lots of information about the different foods produced in the region. I've done alot of tours, including wine tours and really enjoyed this experience, I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great afternoon spent at two lovely vineyards. The hosts were very knowledgeable and friendly. A great way to experience different wines and learn about how they are made. There was a really good selection at each and some lovely food.

Laura is very friendly and personable. In addition to lots of delicious wine, there is also olive oil, bread and a cold cuts and cheese platter. Everything very tasty. So you are well looked after and learn a lot about regional wine.

We had a nice walk through the city, without rushing, and in addition to the food and wine tasting we had a nice talk about the city as well.

Very informal and private. They respond perfectly to all questions and combine a cozy get-together with specialist knowledge.
