    Excellent tour and very informative. Meeting place is not central and is for tour companies convenience rather than the guests, hence the 4 rating.

    We did this tour in September 2019 and it was well worth the money spent. We were taken by bus to Frascati and walked around a vineyard and saw the wine grapes. We then went to the actual wine tastings where we were given four samples of wine, and some snacks. It was very informative. We were also offered the opportunity to buy some of the wine from the region, and they were all very reasonably priced. The tour guide (I cannot remember her name, but she had curly hair), gave us info about the surrounding areas on the drive there and at the vineyard, and she was amazing. Overall would definitely recommend this tour!

    Amazing host (Sylvia), great sommelier (Michelle) and a beautiful few hours in the countyside to escape the city for a while.

    Silvia was a wonderful tour guide, and the winery was very good. The driver was late to pick us up, but they made up the time at the end.

    The tasting room was way too small to be comfortable with our group size

    My adult daughter, niece, and myself enjoyed the wine tour immensely. Laura was a lively, interesting tour guide. Really lived up to expectations.

    We chose this tour the night before because Rome was so hot, crowded and dry. The bus was on time. Our guide Chiara was fantastic. The cellars at the aqueducts were very neat. The sommelier was pleasant and educational. We really enjoyed the wines as well. Bought four bottles. The scenery was beautiful. Of the 13 events booked on this vacation, this ranked very high. Our bus broke down at the wine fields and cellars. That delayed our time and a negative for some, but for me it made it better, staying longer in the fields in a beautiful and peaceful location. It was all handled well and professionally.

    This was everything and more, tour guide Monica met us at the Piazza Re Di Roma and the journey was only 45 minutes to the vineyard. Along the way she gave us a historical guide of Rome and more importantly about the wine and food. Would highly recommend. The vineyard tour itself was well planned and informative, met a great crowd there.

    Our guide Aleksandra spelling? was very knowledgeable and she did an awesome job translating at our tasting! Everything from start to end went smoothly. Learned lots of things at the tasting, even bought a bottle of wine which unfortunately got left at a restaurant . Definitely recommend!
