Despite being very rainy we had an excellent tour. We had chosen the Sirmione and wines of Lake Garda (with boat tour) tour. It was brilliant. Daniel was a very interesting, friendly and informative tour guide. Sirmione was beautiful and the boat tour fun even in the rain. We then went to the Monte Del Fra winery where the owners daughter showed us around and introduced us to some lovely wines. She then gave is some bread and salami and we were able to try the family olive oil.
From our initial correspondence to the actual tour Daniel kept in close touch, informing us when there were not enough people for our chosen tour and suggesting a number of alternatives.
On our actual tour day the other couple did not turn up. We offered Daniel the chance to cancel the tour but luckily for us he chose to go ahead with it. All I can say is that the Irish couple who should have been on the tour missed a great treat.
I would thoroughly reommend this tour company and this tour and I look forward to trying anohter tour on our next visit to Verona.

This is a must, especially if you like your red wine. Took a tour to see the famous Amorone region and drove around the various towns nearby. Trip also involves a visit to a church, an insight into the area and a visit to the famous 'wine university'. The best bit though; the wine tasting !! Wow, this was brilliant and lots of wines to sample were provided; brilliant !!
The tour guide was an absolute gentleman and provided us with so much information about Verona, its history and, aspects of the Amorne wines etc...
Definitely one not to miss !!

During our stay in Verona we used Veronaround Tours on two occasions. From the time we first started making email enquiries with Daniel until we had actually completed the tours, the service was exemplary and very professional. We were very pleased that we had used Veronaround Tours to help make our Verona experience a memorable one.
Our first tour was of Verona itself. We were picked up from our B&B and departed for the panoramic tour of Verona by minibus. We had magnificent views over Verona from the Castel San Pietro. From there we experienced a range of other sights including Verona's underground tunnels. After the minibus tour we strolled the medieval streets and alleys of old Verona, visited the main squares and walked in the footsteps of Romeo and Juliet. The tour lasted over three and a half hours. Daniel was a superb guide, very knowledgeable and informative about the city
Our second tour was a full day one. Daniel drove us across Villafranca to see the castle and we visited the little town of Borghetto, the watermills district along River Mincio. Daniel took us to a small restaurant, Busocaldo, famous for its homemade pasta dishes. The owners and cooks showed us the kitchen and how the traditional tortellini and ravioli were made. After that we were treated to a superb pasta meal of the freshly made tortellini and ravioli and wine tasting. You must try the tiramisu here - the best that we had in our four weeks in Italy! After the tasting/lunch we continued our tour to Sirmione on Lake Garda where we strolled in the little town centre, saw the castle, the old alleys and enjoyed a beautiful view of the peninsula by boat. This was a great day.
Overall, Daniel and Veronaround come with our highest recommendation. Everything was organised well and there was nothing more that we could have asked for. Thanks Daniel!

My Husband and I recently went on the Verona walking tour one day and a boat tour on Lake Garda coupled with a winery tour the next day. They were both excellent excursions. In the Verona tour, we learned so much of the history that you never really read about and we were able to see the city as an incredibly rich and historical place to visit. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting at every step. He also made great recommendations for where to shop and eat while in Verona. The next day, we had a short visit in the picturesque town of Sirmione (thanks to our driver Sabrina) and then went on a boat tour of Lake Garda where we were able to see beautiful scenery. The wine tour was in the Custoza area at the Monte Del Fra estate. It is a family owned business and the tour was excellent. We were able to sample some high quality wines and olive oils that the estate produces. All in all we had a wonderful two days thanks to Daniel and Sabrina of Veronaround Tours!

My husband and I recently spent a day with Daniel from Veronaround Tours. We toured the Lake Garda area with wine tasting and then took a second tour to taste Amarone wine and a panoramic tour of the city of Verona. Daniel picked us up at the Verona train station and returned us there at the end of the day. We had an absolutely FABULOUS day! Daniel is extremely knowledgable and accommodating to the needs of his clients. I HIGHLY recommend contacting the folks at Veronaround Tours should you desire a tour in Verona, Italy!!!
