A lovely and tasty tour
Oct 2021 • Friends
My sister and I took the tour in October, mid week, so it happened that we had a private tour with Richard. Richard is an excellent guide, full of information, kind and friendly. The tour was interesting and delicious and we enjoyed it very much. We highly recommend it.

Exceeding expectations in Perugia
Susan was one of those people that you meet once in a lifetime. She was the most knowledgeable and experienced guide that we had in a long time. Susan exceeded our expectations every moment of this tour. It was like being with a gracious host who took care of your every need to appreciate the best of what Perugia and the region had to offer. She gave us both general knowledge, tips and the best food/wine and much more then we expected. We will never forget the tour and wish that we could put her in our suitcase for the remainder of our 6 week trip through Italy.

Thank you so much for deciding to spend your day with me in Perugia and for taking the time to leave me this fabulous review! It is deeply appreciated. Spending time with people from all over the world and from all walks of life and being able to share with them the foods, wines, and hidden secrets of Perugia has been one of the greatest joys of my life! I won’t forget you both either! —Susan.

Great food in great Perugia!
Aug 2021
This is our second time doing the tour. the first time was 2 years ago and we returned to do it again, this time with the entire family.
Covid-19 situation enforced some changes in the places we visited, which we found it very enjoyable not to repeat exactly the same itinerary. On the other hand, we were happy to return to the "highlights" from the previous tour.
This time, our guide was Richard (The owner's husband) who is a chef and as such, we've got different angle of information on Perugia and specifically on the food.
Overall, this was one of the highlights of our trip in Italy this year. For sure, we will be back again.
Thank you Susan and Richard!

Hi Kobi! Thank you so much for choosing to spend another day in Perugia doing my tour and for taking the time to leave this wonderful review! We deeply appreciate it. I'm thinking I should probably hire my husband full time, right? I am sorry I didn't get to meet the whole family this time and hope to see you again in Perugia. Safe travels! -Susan

Loved this virtual tour! Having been in Perugia one year ago, Susan brought it back to life for me. Her interesting local insights, photos, tips...all so enjoyable. And the wine tasting with her recommended selections topped it off. La Dolce Vita - virtually! A great escape in these challenging times and a tour to look forward to when I can return to Perugia! 🇮🇹 🍷.

Virtual tour so fun and interesting!
Nov 2020
We just took a virtual tour of Susan's earlier this month, so fun and interesting! Although I've been to Perugia, I learned a lot that I didn't know already! Plus, it made me yearn for the time I can go back. Such great stops on the food and wine virtual tour, can't wait to try these in person when it's safe.

Brava, Susan!

Fabulous virtual tour of Perugia
Nov 2020
It was a fun virtual tour of Perugia. Even after spending a month in Perugia, I clearly hadn't learned about some of the food highlights and history in Perugia until the Via Del Vino virtual tour November 8, 2020. It was great fun to learn more Perugian history while tasting (in my own home) 2 delicious Umbrian wines recommended by the tour guide, Susan Guerra. Susan is a wealth of knowledge of Perugia's history, wine and food. I enjoyed seeing some of my favorite Perugian landmarks while enjoying the wines with my truffle flavored cheese.

Using a green screen and beautiful photography, Susan did a private virtual tour for our group that was really well done. In advance of the tour we received a list of the wines and some of the foods to buy and while we tasted wine, cheese and prosciutto, we were taken on a tour of the streets of Perugia as we learned about the unique foods of Umbria. Highly recommended if you have a group of friends who want to do something unique!

A food tour to remember
Jul 2019 • Couples
My girlfriend and I went on Susan’s food tour last summer and it was fantastic! Susan is super knowledgeable and took us to a lot of great places oozing with atmosphere and local charm. High quality food and wine and a lot of great stories. I can not recommend this tour enough! Still six months later we talk about the tour as one of the high points of our Umbria vacation and I have recommended it to numerous friends. Go go go!

Great Way to See and Eat your Way through Perugia
Nov 2019
My friend and I did this food tour on a Saturday in November. Since it was the off season, we were the only ones on the tour and it was a delight. It's a great way to try several places, a range of food, and see a lot of the city. It's also a wonderful way to get oriented to the city - do it first thing on your visit to get a good feel for the city and learn your way around! Rosie was our guide and she did a wonderful job explaining everything and leading us around. We enjoyed it immensely, and went away full of good food and good knowledge.
