Great experience - we felt very safe and in very good hands with Peter and his team. The unplanned landing in the clearing was a highlight and was mastered with ease - afterwards there was real team building with balloons packing. Breakfast and wine tasting were delicious and rounded off the day perfectly. All in all a successful experience - gladly again.

Andu was wonderful, his knowledge and understanding of Assisi was exceptional. It enriched our visit and we were glad we did it on our first day as we could revisit locations we were intrigued by on the following day. Thank you, Andu - we really enjoyed our walking tour.

Gabriel deserves 10 stars! He was amazing and knew so much about the town, history, and about St. Francis. Would definitely go with him again.

Lovely tasting with delightful wines and accompanying foods. Friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable host. Organic wine is the future!

Highly recommended. Excellent wine, tour, food, views and conversation. Well worth your time
