I found this tour to be very enjoyable. The winery we visited gave us a nice overview of the winemaking process for Amarone and the wine estate was very beautiful. Our guide recommended a lovely place in Verona for lunch. All in all, a very wonderful day. Highly recommended.

This was an excellent tour from Venice. It took a little over an hour to get to the winery. Met the owner of the winery and then took a tour of their process ending with a wine tasting of their wines. We then proceeded to Verona where we had several hours to have lunch and visit a few of Verona's sites. Our tour guide was excellent and very personable. We spend 2 weeks in Europe and this was one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in wine.

Don't miss this tour. Simone our tour guide was wonderful, helpful and a joy to travel with! Verona is beautiful and the wine tasting was great, especially if you like Amarone wine. We bought 3 good bottles but will only take 2 home...lol

Beautiful scenery, fantastic guide and lovely company. The wine wasn't bad either!. Actually Villa Spinossa was a dream, all that Amarone waiting to be drunk, and we loved helping.

We went on this tour yesterday and had the best time! We were so lucky as it turned out just to be the two of us, which we were so grateful they kept the tour on just for us! Our driver was very helpful and friendly, he personalised the whole trip and really looked after us. Highly recommend!

This was a great tour on a hot but nice July day. Stefano was waiting for us when we got off the water taxi and it was just our family of three and him this day. We drove for about 40 minutes and reached the town of Soave, where we had 30 minutes to walk up to the castle and back. It would have been nice to have a little more time but the wine tasting at Serego Alighieri required us to be punctual. The wine guide was very informative and the place was beautiful. After that we drove on to Verona and had some 2.5 hours on our own there. Stefano told us the touristy things to avoid and we had a great time exploring with lunch on our own. All in all, a great trip!

My wife and I had a great experience with this trip. The church they take you to is really cool, and the winery was as well. I am somewhat of a wine snob, and I really liked their wine. Our guide was very friendly and spoke at least 3 languages.

I agree with some of the other reviews that said that 3 hours in Verona is too long, but that might only be that it was so hot that we just wanted to be back in air conditioning, so we weren't interested in seeing very much we went in July. All in all, it was a great trip, I would definitely recommend it.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

Small group with a friendly driver. Wine tour was okay but only 3 to try, Verona was easy to get around, a little more time would have been nice

Really really loved these places we visited and the vineyard was magnificent. However Could definitely have done with some input from the driver which was totally missing. Met some other great people from other parts of the world. LOVE this part of Italy and cant wait to visit again someday
