This was a lovely tour and the time allocated to each area visited was perfect. The optional boat tide was refreshing and we were very lucky with the weather and our tour guide Salvatore who gave us a lot of information about the places visited and more. The bus for this tour was very new and clean and also we loved the stop on the way in Bauli.

Great experience! You get to visit a beautiful winery with a good tour, learn how to make pasta with a private chef(great character) and then you eat your pasta prepared by the chef. This is accompanied with good wine from the winery of course

Very well planned tour and adequate time allocation for every region visited. Our guide Salvatore made the experience more enriching by proving a detailed comprehensive history about the various places visited. A recommended tour.
