This was an amazing tour with the shuttle picking our group up at our hotel in Turin. We booked the full day tour and it was worth the time and expense. This region of Northwest Italy is stunning. We visited 2 great wineries and did some wine tasting. There were opportunities to purchase wine at each place. We also had an outstanding lunch and it was included in the tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and engaged. Our driver was also excellent, negotiating the curves in the hills around Barola. We visited Alba but it would have been great to eat there as it was the start of truffle season. This tour is an excellent introduction to the Piedmont vine region and I highly recommend it if you are visiting Turin and would like to get out of the city for a day.
Absolutely recommend this wine tasting tour! We were picked up from our hotel in a nice sedan with a driver and tour guide. Our guide spoke English well and was able to provide information about the Piedmont region, wine and history of the area.
Guide Antonella combined her broad bases of knowledge - as historian and licensed sommelier - and filled me with regional information as she introduced me to two different but equally interesting vineyards and wineries. The tour staff at both Cerretto and Marchesi di Barolo were welcoming and accommodating. I learned a lot about Barolo and saw a great deal of the Langhe countryside as well, things I couldn't have done so thoroughly on my own. All in all, this was a perfect way to spend a Sunday in Torino.
Pamela was our guide. She was extremely knowledgeable about the region and gave us a lot of back round information on the way to the wineries. Our first stop was the Barolo winery, small family owned. The Borgogno family was very welcoming and gracious. Wines were fabulous. Then off to Cordero Di Montezemolo. Much bigger winery, great wines. Although not as personable as the first. Really enjoyed this tour.
Charming and knowledgeable guide. Lovely countryside. Delicious wines, beautiful winery. We only did the half day. Wish we could have gone for a full day. Just delightful!

Viator chose the right local vendor! Superb job from them! Local guide was a font of knowledge, and the driver was great on all fronts. Itinerary and pacing were spot on. Only nit is that, as an admitted wine geek, I would have liked one more upscale wine stop. But in totality, it was a great day...thanks!
Our tour guide was very thorough and considerate .She guided us through our day and taught us much.

Good half day trip, overall! That is if you are willing to pay top money, if don't want to do your own research and drive yourself to explore. Unfortunately, we were able to visit only one winery, as the second one was closed. So we did second wine tasting at the enoteca/ wine shop, which was very picturesque. Yet, experience was not the same as being to the actual winery. Having visited many vineyards across Italy, I must say that the scenery was splendid, yet the wineries of Piedmont (at least on this trip) seemed very manicured, but lacked the intimate feel of the others. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and seemed knowledgable. Thank you.
