This really was an excellent day out and even the damp weather couldn't spoil it. The group compromised of seven guests and Marco, the driver / guide. Marco was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the wine making process and this made it very enjoyable....More

The boating companies claim the short cruises to see 6 bridges are 45-50 mins long - well its really more like 30 minutes of cruising along the river and 15 minutes picking up passages from the opposite bank. You don't really see much more than...More

The breakfast was very poor quality - a piece of bread, a plain croissant, orange drink that tasted like tang, and coffee. The lunch was decent. As for the river, I don't have anything to compare to but the river did not... More
