A great and very well organized day with a lot of wonderful experiences. Our guide Annalisa was great. She was very careful and active and told us a lot on the long bus ride and also guided us through not so overcrowded streets in Venice. The free time is set very generously. We took part in both the gondola ride (€ 30 pp for a 30-minute ride in a 4-person gondola - ride at 5 p.m. - then the waterways are no longer so full) and the joint dinner (€ 15 pp). Both can be booked during the outward journey. It was a very long day (departure Limone at 7.40 a.m. and return at 1.15 a.m.), which was very exhausting, but also positively unforgettable. For a first visit to Venice it is simply ideal and we now know how to go there again. And what was unbeatable for us was that we could see Venice at night (due to the departure at 9). The city then has a very special charm. Recommend

We had a really good and educational day. The guide took us around the vineyards, we saw his animals and learned about biodynamic wine production - much that we did not know in advance. We tasted 5 different natural wines and got delicious local cheese and cold cuts. Everything played out and we were very happy!

Amazing experience with professional guide. Immersion in the magic world of Valpolichella wines in the Farina's familial winery. Combinations of local food and wines was excellent and prices are matching the quality if the product.

Very nice property, you get to see the blend between the old and the new. We tried some very delicious wines and snacks. Definitely would recommend ☺️

Experience absolutely to be recommended with a very good guide and excellent value for money
