We (group of three women) had an amazing experience with this tour! We really felt like we lucked out with our tour guides, Valeria and Paola (and the doggy Orso) were all amazing hosts and so personable, informative and fun! They really made us feel like part of the culture! This town (Frascati) is one of the most beautiful, picturesque towns I’ve ever visited! We feel like we got so much for our money, experiences that money can’t buy! I really can’t recommend this enough!

“Amazing; Great locations, food, and awesome guides. We had an excellent time. Big group, but easily accommodated by Hop & Vine. The food was amazing, the weather was perfect, and it was really fun”aOne of the highlights of our Italy trip! Very well planned itinerary, great communication leading up to it so we knew how to meet up with the group, and one of the best wine tours I’ve been on. The winery tour guide was so knowledgeable and kind. There was a beautiful view and a very interesting cave. The wine and snacks were delicious. Afterwards, the trip into the Frascati town and the restaurant was fantastic. Every single person associated with this tour was professional, kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. I will recommend this to everyone who visits Rome! Thanks so much.
