I think this is my first ever review but I had to share this wonderful experience. We were 7 people having an amazing day in Franciacorta with a stop at two wineries and an amazing restaurant for lunch. Everything was perfectly prepared and communication was easy and to the point. I would definitely recommend booking a tour here!

Bellissima giornata tra amici con la scoperta di 2 nuove cantine e un buon pranzo. Tour ben consigliato e ben organizzato. Se dovessi trovare un minimo di critica direi che i tempi sono un po' strettini tra la visita alla cantina del mattino, poi pranzo e altra visita a nuova cantina, nonostante i tragitti fossero minimi. Bravi!
