Highly recommended. It was everything as described and our tour guide and driver were fantastic. It started raining just as we got to the vineyard so we couldn't finish the tour there. Instead our guide took us on a brief tour of Rome when we got back to the city.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! THE VIEWS ON THIS TOUR ARE SPECTACULAR!!!
It was a fantastic tour. We've been going non-stop for 10-straight days and needed to slow-down for a day. This was the perfect tour. It was a relaxing day in the countryside of Rome - away from the tourism crowds - at OUR OWN PACE. We had a great time eating wonderful food, drinking fantastic wines, and sharing great conversation overlooking Lake Albano in Castel Gandolfo where the rowing events in the Rome summer Olympics were held. The view was stunning.
Then it was on to the town of Nemi for more great wine, great food, shopping, strolling, and relaxing at the sidewalk cafes. Our last stop before returning to Rome was the town of Frascati - famous for it's wine by the same name. We leisurely strolled around the town, visiting shops along the way, sampled some more food and wines, stopped for some coffee and gelato for dessert.
This relaxing, wonderful day was made even better by our guide, Donald, who was outstanding. He let us enjoy the day at a leisurely pace. This was the best tour we have taken the entire vacation, and we have been touring everyday from the Vactican to the Collesum to The Isle of Capri.
This was a lovely day trip, and the driver and guide were phenomenal, but the things we experienced were not those mentioned in the description of the trip. We were never offered any porchetta, popped biscuits or gelato at the places visited. On returning, I had to reread the trip summary because I started to doubt my memory of it. I think maybe there should be more honesty about what is actually offered, so the expectations will be valid.
