The tour was great! Was 2 hours early before the meeting point time. Francesca was in the neighborhood and she suggested that she would pick me up and drop me at Citta Alta, an medieval part of Bergamo. There i could wander true the streets until the meeting point time. What was great! The tour itself was also great! Nice food, nice sparkling wines. At the vineyard we learned allot and also tasted the difference of three different sparkling wines. Really recommend this tour, the host Francesca is really an nice person!

Our guide Georgia was amazing. Extremely knowledgeable and her local connections made for an absolutely delicious tour! Brera district is beautiful, definitely foodie heaven.

Well organised very relaxed no guide but there was an app if you wanted to download But frankly sitting watching the world go by with a sundowner was enough for us

A beautiful boat and the crew were very helpful. I very much enjoyed our trip around the lake. A perfect afternoon

Excellent experience, learned so much and fabulous wines!
