Love making individual, personalised quilts, custom crafts and bags. Have a beautiful property that keeps us self sufficient in vegetables, fruit and herbs. Adore this township - the people, the walks, being able to access organic foodstuffs and sharing with our neighbours. Life is good 3

My Review

This was one of the very best tours we have had on our journey around Europe. Adam, our tour guide, was brilliant. His history knowledge was excemplary, and as were only a group of 12, it made the whole day very enjoyable. A very long day, but not one of us noticed it at all. The castle tours where amazing, and the lunch at another chateau couldn't have been any better. The food was absolutely brilliant and our host and hostess very kind, considerate and passionate about their winery. If I could give this trip10 stars I would......

An excellent tour, and considering there were tour buses everywhere on the day we went, our host and hostess did a brilliant job getting us around, and giving us enough free time for photographs. Lunch was brilliant.

My Review

Viator......
We are truly disappointed that you have  put your name  to this tour.  

It wasn't  made clear at all that the  tour would be accompanied by at least 80 other people, which made  it  truly impossible to enjoy the experience.  If we hadn't taken  our own  initiative and headed out to the boat, we would have missed the tour completely as there was no-one to meet and  greet on the wharf.

When  you say you have an English speaking  tour guide, well that is all well and good, but when said tour guide speaks 4 other languages, all we got was 1 line  pieces of information at not so regular intervals.  There was  no history references along the way and at no time was the tour guide with us at our drop off  points. We were left to our own devices at all three islands.  Granted  we were told  where to go and  what to see, but that really wasn't  good enough.

We all literally froze on the way back in the evening as the crew wouldn't  shut the door on the water taxi,  while they stayed warm in their cabin.  It was truly a bad end to a very bad  day.

My husband and I came away thinking that we had wasted our money on this one, and  I had put a lot of thought into my one day in Venice.  Your tour at the time  seemed ideal.  Unfortunately I was proven  wrong.

I know there are many people that have enjoyed this particular tour - maybe we just got a bad  day, but it was such a negative experience for us.

My Review

Rosa our guide was brilliant. We had a full day of historical insight. It was so refreshing to have someone show you around that was passionate about archaeology.
We had the tiniest hiccup. The directions to get to the tour office were very vague. We made it by the skin of our teeth. All in all a truly brilliant day.
