The transport is comfortable and our guide was friendly. There is only one winery we visited. It was picturesque and the wine tasting was endless although not a wide selection. Each wine was first accompanied with a selection of cheeses. We also had olives, eggplant and bread with olive oil. From here it was short trip to the restaurant where we were served a pre set menu of 4 or 5 shared dishes and a jug of red and white wine plus water. The restaurant location is lovely and full of locals which is a good sign.
We enjoyed the tour which was very informative. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained the volcanic processes perfectly. We had booked the trip based on the information that there was a three hour hiking component. This turned out to be a three kilometre hike. It did snow during our trip and this made it difficult but was easily managed. The wine and lunch component of the tour was excellent and could not be faulted. It was a good day but we would have like a bit more hiking
My husband and I enjoyed our time with Anna! She was a great host and amazing cook. Her passion for food is evident in her explanations in different types of food, wheat, flour... Apparently food runs in her family's blood! We made a delicious caponata, trapanese pesto and fresh pasta. She made us work for our lunch which is exactly what we look for in a cooking class. Definitely recommend her!
Our guide (Paulo) was excellent and really made the whole tour, he had a lot of information to impart which he did whilst also checking that he was not giving us too much information. He was more than happy to amend the tour timings to meet our interests and also ensured that we were well looked after. It was a great day out.
Very full and interesting day. Roberto, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The wine testing was very nice, and the meal tasty (but a tad too simple/small). Overall a very enriching experience I would recommend to all. PS. shoes and rain jackets are provided for those needing them
