Alessandra was an excellent guide, flexible, nice person and added a lot to the trip. Barolo beautiful. The winery is a smaller one, but this is a lovely place and it has interesting history. Matteo is a real professional, who told a lot about wine making. The tasting and wines were good, of course. The journey between wineyards was spectacular and was crowned with the view from the top of the hill. Thank you Alessandra, recommended!

Tour guide Manuela and driver great, food was very good and plentiful, only the view was missing. All in all a great, informative and entertaining excursion!

Romantic evening. All perfect. Great buffet. Friendliness on the part of the skipper. Recommended

We had a romantic trip with sparkling wine and various antipasti. A good start!

Very nice experience. We enjoyed the tasting and the truffle hunt very much.
