If you get the chance to go to Vermont for a day or few days, check out Vermontology Guided Tours. Natalia is the best tour guide in Vermont, she is very passionate and knowledgeable about Vermont. She will take you to the out of the way places that the locals know and frequent, she will take you to some of the touristy places too. For the best use of your money and time Vermontology is the way to go. it's very Vermontcy!!

Natalia is passionate and outgoing. We benefited enormously from her enthusiasm and knowledge of life in Vermont. We have traveled to Vermont on several occasions, including on our honeymoon approximately 50 years ago! However, our tour with Natalia will be the tour we remember most. She customized the day to accommodate our interests. Each stop was a learning experience (e.g., Ziemke Glassblowing Studio), especially those which included examples of the different Vermonter cultures (villages in Stowe and Waterbury). We especially enjoyed learning about the history of the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe and its establishment by the Trapp Family.

We found views of the open scenic fields, covered bridges and Smuggler's Notch beautiful and enlightening. The food samples along the way were fantastic! She made our day educational, fun, and one that we will continue to talk about for many days.

Natalia was an excellent host. She made every effort to make us happy, accommodate our tastes and likes, and make sure we saw everything we wanted to. The tour van was extremely clean and tidy, everything went perfectly on schedule and my wife and I had an excellent time! Our first stop was to the Mad River Glass studio. They weren't actively blowing glass but it was very cool to see the studio and look at the great art they had in the studio. We left with a medium glass pumpkin. Something my wife had her eye set on for a few years. Our next stop was to the mad river farmers market. There we sampled from the Mad River Distillery as well as many other local cheeses, dips, spreads and other tastiness. From there we went on a scenic drive through Vermont's highways and made two different stops in the state forest to take a look at some beautiful waterfalls. We were able to walk around the falls and get some really great pictures from above, below and even in between levels of the falls. Then it was time for lunch and the serious sampling to begin. We stopped at Otter Creek Brewing to have lunch and taste from six samples of their brews. Lunch was really great and the beer was even better. From there it was a very short drive over to the Appalachian Distillery. This was a very neat place with a very different approach to their craft. They have some very interesting ideas for their spirits and it's as much an experimental lab as it is a distillery. Next was another short trip up the road to Woodchuck Cider. This was a very impressive stop. The building is brand new. Just over a year old at the time we went. It has a beautiful tasting room and gift shop as well as a self guided tour that we had the pleasure of being guided through by one of the employees. Our last stop was at Drop In Brewery. This was a really neat place. It looks like an old country store or something like that. We sampled another six brews of various styles here. All were very unique and very good. Our whole trip back was an absolute blast! By then Natalia had gotten to know us well and we knew her pretty well. We had a great conversation for the trip home and I honestly have no idea how long it took because we were engaged and entertained the whole time. Overall I would recommend this tour to anyone. Whether you're a Vermont regular, a first timer or from out of state (or out of country) you will have a great time. Natalia is very knowledgable and passionate about what she does and you can tell she really enjoys her job. When, not if, we come back we will absolutely call Natalia for an excursion.

Natalia is extremely knowledgable and is a pleasure to tour with. She helped make our vacation a magical fun- filled adventure complete with fond memories. Also, Natalia went above and beyond to accommodate accessibility for my mother and to make sure we could take great photos of our attractions in various parts of Vermont. We highly recommend her services and definitely would tour with her again on return trips to Vermont.

Natalia was great! I was in Hanover NH for the week. Seeing Vermont with Natalia was a highlight of my week. She picked me up at 9:30 and dropped me off past the 8 hours which we discussed. I love taking pictures and she made sure we stopped on the side of the road to get the the shots. She was great company and gave me plenty of time in each location so I never felt rushed.
