Can’t recommend Valerio enough. He was really fun, chatty and lovely company. He taught us a lot about Sardinian wine and answered all our questions and even gave us some recommendations for our next stop in Bosa. Overall, it was really great to meet two lovely local Sardinians and learn more about the culture with the benefit of some amazing wine!

It was a great evening with friendly people and a relaxed atmosphere! We have not only learned a lot about wine but enjoyed the company and delicious food and wines! The guide provided us with many helpful answers not only about wines but also the region and things we could do.

The guide was very friendly and easy going. The farm was High situated with the most fantastic view. The farmer gave us a warm welcome and told us everything we wanted to know about wine and beyond. We enjoyed the tour and the company.

The guide was great, made me feel very comfortable, he was easy to converse with. It was my first time on a private tour so was not sure what to expect.

Franco was a fantastic tour guide and Giuseppe was a very genuine host - would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Cagliari!
