Riccardo was a fantastic guide. He took the time to show us some of the local sites and made sure we were enjoying ourselves. The wine tasting was fantastic and the Tiramisu was the best I’ve ever had. Riccardo and his lovely wife made us feel so welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Prosecco wine tasting.
