Great tour, lovely and knowledgable wine host, good bunch of people

Had a fantastic wine tour. The guide at the winery was lovely and really knowledgeable and passionate. Driver was nice and lots of interesting information. Wines were tasty. Lots of food! Nice group of people with different nationalities. Highly recommend. Slight annoyance was we waited ages for pick up and not told it was going to be late.

Seot 2019. A fun, informative tour through an Etna winery topped off with a gorgeous wine tasting and pairing with local cheeses and other delicacies. After the tour a lunch with wine and some unusual appetizers you have to taste to believe. It was a boisterous, happy tour meeting people from around the globe. Highly recommend.

What a fantastic day. Salvo our guide was funny and knowledgeable. We had a total of 7 people on our tour from UK, Canada & Australia and let me say we were all friends by the end of the tour. We went to Gambino winery and the wines were exceptional and in generous quantities. After the winery visit we had lunch in a charming little restaurant with amazing local food & wine. Would definitely recommend this tour. The scenery and views are breathtaking.
