What people are saying about Veneto

The tour was extremly awesome. I am South Korean traveling with my parents, and this experience was one of the best we’ve done in Italy. Our guide was Leonardo. He was so kind and talented in telling stories about his hometown Valpolicella. Everything was so smooth that my parents also loved the tour so much. The wine and the foods were excellent and the scenery of winery was so beautiful. It was such a nice experience making friends with kind and smart Italians. The best guide and the driver. 부모님 모시고 한 투어였는데 너무나 친절하고 똑똑란 가이드님이 함께해주셨어요. 친절한 멋쟁이 기사님까지 정말 완벽한 투어였어요. 영어 되시는 분들은 정말 강추합니다.
