Absolutely fantastic tour! The vineyard was beautiful, overlooking the coast and with Mount Vesuvius in the background. The wines were paired well with each course and the food was amazing! The price of the tour can trick you into thinking this is one of the “cheaper” options as far as wine tours go but the experience was not “cheap” by any means. Our tour guide was very insightful, explained things well and was happy to answer any questions. The restaurant overlooked the vineyard and had a lovely, rustic feel to it. The only thing that I would say needs improving is directions to the actual vineyard… we got in a local taxi and even the driver had no clue where to go! Perhaps a pick up / drop off service from one of the closer train stations for an added fee?

The wine tasting and lunch was a great experience and the staff was very nice and kind. The only issue was transportation. My party and I had trouble getting from the station we came into then to the vineyard as there weren’t any taxi services around and it was confusing to find the vineyard so I would say plan ahead how you are going to get there!

Really nice location and definitely worth the money! You get a little tour at the vineyards and the can see the different kind of branches and grapes. Afterwards we had a very nice lunch with 5 different wines that matches the courses. Would recommend to book this tour!

Such an amazing experience, quite a challenge to get to on foot but once you do, it’s so worth it! 5 glasses of wine and a glass or liqueur at the end, accompanied with three course meal. Great value! Thou roughly recommend

The wines were so tasty and they were so nice and accommodating. Lunch was great and the vineyard was beautiful. Highly reccomend!
