Tomas, our guide on the Brunello wine tour, was charming and informative and had a good sense of humour. His driving was a touch crazy but we ended up feeling we knew him a little and wanted him to have a great future. The German-born self-confessed wine nerd at Brunello was hugely informative and the wine tasting was well done (and of course delicious). The ancient proprietor (80-odd years old?)at the second winery was a ladies' man and a bit of an old boy, and his wines were lovely, but we didn't get anywhere near as much info.
The day at Cinque Terre was frenetic and utterly inadequate. Windy weather prevented the boat leg from happening, and trains were late, which was not the tour operators' fault but were factors that added to the general feeling of frustration and tiredness. Don't go if you can't walk very well as you will just end up sitting around at bars and train stations while the fit people race around the gorgeous five villages. Badly planned - trying to take in far too much in a short time.
