We recently arranged two fantastic activities through Margherita at Albaway Tours. First, we did a walking tour of Alba with Alessandra. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Alba and its most important sites. And, she was equally fun to chat with about Piedmont and the surrounding areas. One highlight was a visit to a famous truffle shop where... More

This was the second time doing a tour with Margherita and I'm excited to do another one the next time we visit Alba. Margherita is a true professional and being born in Alba what better way to spend time with someone that truly understands the culture, history, and of course food and wine. This time we did a 3 day... More

Learning to ride the Segway from Margherita was quick and easy, and so much fun I couldn't believe it! What a great way to see the beautiful Piemonte countryside. Margherita was nice and funny and a good tour guide. We enjoyed the ride and the wine tasting, and can't wait to find somewhere else to Segway. I felt like a... More

Margherita took us on the hill tour and for that a Segway is just brilliant.... the tour is comfortable, informative and you get a good view on Alba town and the Ferrero plant (incl. chocolate smell). I enjoyed the first time on a segway and just loved it. Easier than you think and definatly easy for skiers.

Me an my husband did the Alba wine tour. It was the first time we tried segways, but Alessandra was very patient makings sure we had the grip of it before we ventured out on the road. The tour up to the winery Ceretto was beautiful, passing grape fields, hazelnut trees and peachtrees. Alessandra was very friendly, patient and explained... More

Matteo did a great job of taking me to historic and beautiful spots in and around Barolo. The trip up the hill to La Morra on the segways was not only fun but the scenery was awesome at the top and around the little village. then we stopped at a local family owned winery for a tasting and some snacks....

We had a fantastic day where Margarita had arranged visits on a few very well-picked local wineries, lunch in a cosy restaurant etc. Margarita is very likeable, serviceminded and authentic.

This is a MUST DO adventure! We are two Oklahoma gals...age 70 and 72...who wanted to try the Segway Tour. Margarita was our patient mentor and guide and did an absolutely fantastic job. After our training session we were still apprehensive, but the minute we began the tour we were relaxed and loved it! We took the Alba town tour... More
