My wife was Leary about spending over $350 for the two os for a group tour. At the end of the day, she thought it was money well spent. Allesandro is very knowledgeable and quite a performer yet is couteous and personable as well. They picked us up on time at our hotel, even phoning the evening before to let us know they would ome 10 minutes later than originally planned.and at the end of the day dropped us (and our luggage) at the train station. He had even looked up when the train left and gave us a recommendation for a nearby cafe to kill the extra time. The factory tours were informative and took us much closer to the action than one ever gets in the US. But we really felt we got our money's worth at the "light lunch". It took place at an agtritourisimo in the hills outside Bologna and consisted of multiple delicious courses (with extra helpings offered for each) and at least 5 wines, again with no limit on how much you wanted to drink. Overall, a highlight of our trip to Italy that I would highly recommend.
