I only had one day in Verona, so I wanted to make the most of it. This tour exceeded all of my expectations. We saw the major sights, learned some amazing history about the city, and sampled the local cuisine (all of which was delicious). I would do the tour again!

Prompt pick up. Tour guide gave a very good overview of the Valpolicella area and wine making. The 2 vineyards visited were really nice and contrasted very well. We were very kindly received and the tours of each were excellent. We loved the wine tasting

Fantastic afternoon tour from Verona. Visited two very different wineyards. Tasted many good wines. Very interesting to see how the productionline in a large winery is. Amazing amount of production.
