Fabulous day visiting 2 of Irpinia’s family wineries in the beautiful Avellino area of Campania. Our host/sommelier Guatano was an absolute delight to spend the day with - his knowledge of the area and it’s history, geography, food and wine was mind blowing. We very much enjoyed the conversation with him and had lots of laughs as he was very enthusiastic and entertaining! We enjoyed warm and generous hospitality at both our stops and learned a lot about producing wine in this iconic region (we have a small vineyard in Australia). We would recommend this tour very highly and it is excellent value for money. Grazie!

Our guide Paulo was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable about the Amalfi coast and not only provided us with a safe hike but also made sure to give us a little history of the area as well as point out the different herbs, fruits, and vegetables that grow wild on the mountain. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Request Paulo…you won’t be disappointed.

Marco was such a wonderful guide! We learnt about the history, the local plants, picked up some Italian lingo and some good laughs. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a fun experience.

Excellent hike with Enzo. He was professional and expert on the area. History & culture We are so happy we experienced. This is a must for outdoor athletic adventurers Ask for Enzo!!!

Vincenzo was a great guide! We learnt a lot about the history behind Positano and the walk was breathtaking
