“Prosecco + Panoramic views = Perfection”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

We were a group of 8 people visiting from the Cayman Islands, and we had the perfect tour with Miriam to the Prosecco road. Everything from the booking process to being dropped back home was planned and timed to perfection. In the morning we went to the family run winery called Vincenzo Toffoli, and in the afternoon we went to a larger winery called Umberto Bortolotti. Both had great wines to taste! Miriam was helpful and informative, without being too intrusive into our group. She also spoke great English. We stopped at 2 or 3 other places to see amazing scenery and views of the hills covered in vines. We asked to to stop for something to eat and she took us to an amazing small restaurant in the middle of the region. Highly recommend this place. It's called Salis and has breathtaking views. All in all, I really can't say a bad word about this trip. We all had an absolute blast.

Would definitely recommend Miriam to anyone else who visits this area.

“Palladio Tour”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

My partner and I took the day tour of Palladian villas, houses I have dreamed about seeing since I was a child. Miriam connected us with a local guide named Laura. Laura's knowledge of the region's history and her knowledge of frescoes and their meanings was extensive. We toured 4 villas in total with a stop in Asolo for lunch - which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Asolo is a beautiful little mountain town we would have never visited otherwise. If you are a fan of Palladio and want to see some of the most influential (and beautiful) structures of Western architecture you should definitely take this tour.

“Prosecco Wine Tour”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Three girls in Venice, what better for a day trip than exploring and tasting in the Prosecco region :-)
Miriam collected us on time in a big comfortable people carrier. We whizzed through the beautiful countryside up to the hills where we were met by our first vineyard host. A show round with explanation of the 'Prosecco method' was followed by a long tasting session accompanied by cold meat, cheese and bread. We then received a bottle each and were also given the opportunity to buy some more.
Posh lunch stop via an old historic mill was fantastic. Steaks and fish cooked over the indoor BBQ pit ...... soooooo tasty :-)
On to our second vineyard after lunch and this was a bigger very highly regarded vineyard. The commissioned bottles by Ferrari and Maserati take pride of place in the foyer. The cellars of this vineyard were most impressive and to imagine turning all those bottles by hand ...... what a job!
Fantastic day all in all, very informative and Miriam answered all sorts of random questions both on the way and return journey.

Will definitely come back to Venice next year and will definitely do the Prosecco Tour again!

Thanks Miriam x

Reviewed 8 June 2014

We had a wonderul tour of 2 different wineries that Miriam set us up for - Our emails prior to arrival were filed with information and maps and directions - She met us at the pre-designated spot - drove us to the place- dropped us off at the front door and met us again - We did have her join us for lunch at a real life old castle - She was most enjoyable and knowledgeable both about wine as well as the history of Italy, surrounding lands/ agriculture , etc - A wonderful time was had by our party of 5

“Fantastic day wine tasting”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Me and my partner had a fantastic day on the Prosecco wine tour. Miriam is very friendly and knowledgable and was a fantastic host on our tour. Well worth taking a day out from Venice itself. We learned a lot about Prosecco which also happens to be my favourite drink. The tours of both wineries were very informative and show the contrast between a large scale winery and a small scale one but both family businesses and very friendly. The place Miriam took us for lunch I can honestly say was the best pasta we had during our 2 week trip around Italy with a great view! All in all a fantastic day we will always remember.
