    it wasnt what i expected

    the tour i took wasn't the one i have booked, we are only two people at the tour, there wasn't any wine tasting and the driver said to us that it was so. I am very disconformed with the tour, it was so boring and we only had one tasting very regular. what ia have booked was the visit of 2 winweries with wine tasting adn the expalnation in spanish, because my couple cant' speak english or italian. iwas looking for a good tour, and i paid a high amount of money for something i hand't, so it was so bad in my opinion. i think this is not a price for this tour.
