The tour was very nice, the guide knowledgeable and helpful. Verona is quaint and cute and the winery was very good, too.

Another fantastic trip with a great guide. We thouroughly enjoyed our trip to Verona and loved the wine! Both our driver and our wine expert at Spinosa were very knowledgeble and personable. A real joy to experience.
This tour was the high lite of our trip. Marco picked us up on time and we had a great drive out to the Valdobbiadene wine region. We had the owners/wine makers of each vineyard give us a private tour. Marco took us to lunch at a very cozy restaurant in a tiny town near the vineyards and the lunch was fabulous. This is a must do tour when visiting Venice.
I could easily have skipped the first stop, the very old church at the top of the hill, but it did have amazing views of the surrounding countryside from across the street. The winery and the tour guide were excellent! We tasted 3 wines. I bought 6 bottles and shipped them home. Three hours in Verona is enough. We ate lunch, we walked around, we toured inside a church or two, but the best site was the ancient Roman arena which pre-dates the Colosseum, which I didn't know about.
this was an absolutely excellent trip! we have toured many vineyards, including Bordeaux, and we learned more at this one than anywhere else! our guide at the vineyard Marta was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the wines and the wine-making process. she is also a sommelier, which added to her excellent presentations and our understanding of the wines. not to mention, the wines were really excellent! the vineyard itself was gorgeous and we loved learning its history and evolution.
our trip to Verona gave us plenty of time to have lunch and do our own walking tour. it is a beautiful town, with lots of locals, not just a tourist destination.
we really appreciated our guide Stefano. he was informative about the region and it's history, as well as the wines. we also loved that he offered an alternate quick stop at the town of Soave to see an ancient castle, in place of the planned scenic stop to see the mountains all of those on the tour had either been to the dolomites, or had a trip scheduled that week. he did a great job!
we had several tours during our 2 weeks in Italy-- this one was our favorite!!
Well paced visit to Valpolicella winery and Verona - nice day
This is a tour not to be missed. My only recommendation would be to put the wine tasting in the afternoon and the Verona visit in the morning. The tour was excellent and the vineyard was a real treat.
Highly recommended given our experience. Great winery and driver treated us superbly. Provided a map of Verano which helped. He was very knowledgeable of the areas we traveled. Verano was beautiful.
Well arranged. Very good guide and transportation. Excellent visit to vineyard with good wine tasting.
There were 3 stops on this tour and they were all delightful. Our first stop was at a small, walled town and we were lucky enough to be there on market day. The winery tour was beautiful and very interesting, and the wines we tasted were excellent. Verona had some different things to see too. It was a nice get away from the bigger cities.
My name is Christine Forth and this was a gift from my sister in law for me and my husband. The evening was a great success and we both thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Claudio was our wine expert and he was spot on with each wine for each course. The restaurant was quite unique and the staff were lovely. we will remember our visit for ever and would love to do it all over again one day.

Highlite of our trip? Wine was great, food at lunch was out of this world! Mario is amazing!
Try and fit this in, it is well worth it.
Very enjoyable. The restaurant was a little out of the way but we enjoyed seeing a new area of Venice. We tasted 4 wines, including one white, one prosecco and two reds. All glasses of wine were generous (about 100ml). The accompanying tapas were delicious and filling. We were there about 2 hours.

This wine and dinner pairing was a highlight of our trip to Venice. We had a wonderful meal, paired with 5 different wines. The sommelier took lots of time to give information about the grapes and growing regions of each wine we tasted. He even emailed us a detailed list of everything we sampled. The food was excellent, and the restaurant staff was friendly and attentive. We're definitely glad we booked this tour.

What a great tour! You get to see a lot of the country side on this tour. You start by a very short visit to San Giorgio's church. The alter dates back to the 8th century. The views from the church are amazing. From there you make your way through wine country. The vineyard is amazing. The views spectacular. The tour guide at the vineyard walks you through their entire process and it is facinating. You end the tour with wine tasting. They provide crackers and cheese as well. From the vineyard, you make your way to Verona. You have about 3 hours to spend exploring the city and then back to Venice.
The only issue we had with the tour is they lost our reservation, but the tour guide accomodated us in his vehicle. It was a tight fit with 7 adults.
It is a good experience for first time winery tour and you get a map to explore Verona on your own.
Great day out, Wine tasting was very interesting indeed and informative and delicious. Sadly a massive hold up on the motorway caused by a major accident meant we only had one hour in Verona. Our driver did his very best, so full marks to him. I can recommend this trip.
