    Nice and well organized tour. The guide was very nice. The tour of the winery was very interesting - very informative but not too long. At the wine tasting, however, only three instead of four wines were offered. The wine tasting itself was also very hectic, you could tell that the guide wanted to get to Castelbueno as quickly as possible. After a short tour of Castelbueno, we went to a delicatessen where various local specialties could be tasted for free and then bought.

    Picked up bang on time, although we were asked to be there 15mins early. A great tour of the winery and the host was very informative. Enjoyable wi es and local nibbles. A leaflet about the winery would have been good to have as taking everything in when the host is speak excellent English but unerstanabley still got a heavy Italian accent. On to Castlebuno very nice little place which we would never have go to without this trip. Great local sweet treats to try too. A great local church worth a visit and down I to the cript fascinating frescoes. Back to Cefalu on time.

    I would definitely recommend this tour - the wine was lovely as were the people at the winery and Castelbuono was a beautiful, interesting place to visit. The treats we were given in the square were also delicious! The tour guide was great - very knowledgeable and friendly. A great afternoon!
