A personalised experience of Vermont like no other! A must-do!

My husband and I decided to take an anniversary long weekend trip to Killington, Vermont. As we like to explore when we are on vacation, we decided to try Vermontology Tours. Natalia’s love for her adopted State of Vermont shows through. We booked the Brewery Tour for our first day and the Stowe/Ben & Jerry’s tour for second day. Natalia picked us up at our hotel promptly at the agreed upon time. Her van is very comfortable. Natalia put us at ease immediately. During the drive to our first brewery, The Drop In Brewery, she gave us a history lesson, which is what we wanted. I highly recommend the Drop In Brewery. On a side note, Vermont is the most dog friendly State I’ve ever been in. I loved that!

All the breweries we visited we different and unique. I recommend the tour to beer aficionados.

Our second day tour was of Stowe. First stop was Ben & Jerry’s. Great place to go and the samples are very good. Natalia took us all through Stowe et al and gave us a history lesson about each area. She is very knowledgeable and personable. She knew that I liked wine and made a special trip, not on the itinerary, all as an extra surprise for me. Natalia will do whatever she can to see that you enjoy your trip.

I give Natalia 5 stars. If there were a higher rating, she would get that!

My mother and I visited Burlington during what we later discovered to be "mud season". Being from Florida, we didn't know there was a lull between the winter and spring attractions (in late April) so we were quite lucky to find that Vermontology was still available to show us around. Our first few days exploring independently weren't bad, but fighting through the rain to see downtown Burlington was less excitement than we'd hoped for. We thought we'd see Lake Champlain on The Spirit of Ethan Allen but they don't open until early May. And of course, all the ski lodges and farm tours were out of season too. We had some great food along the way, but the trip was failing. My mom found an ad for a private tour that was still going strong (and very fairly priced) so we booked with Vermontology. I expected a tour guide who was reciting their scripted knowledge of popular attractions as drive by hurriedly... but we got so much more! Natalia was prompt to pick us up from the hotel and her van was very comfortable. She's got large back windows and all wheel drive to help you safely sight see as she shows you around. She took us to the Ben and Jerry's tour to start and then we went to Cabot for some cheese samples and Smuggler's Notch for some local spirits. Then we went off the beaten path to Stowed Hollow which is where Natalia's love for the Vermont outdoors really showed. We took some great pictures and had a lovely time afterwards exploring the schools in Stowe. It was clear that our trip was finally a success, thanks to Natalie and Vermontology. I can't wait to go back so she can take my friend and I on the brewery tour. You can't go wrong spending a day with a private tour hosted by Vermontology. Thanks Natalia!

Natalia is such a warm personality and highly motivated and professional guide. I truly enjoyed spending a day with her and our little women group. The Vermont scenery in winter was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk and discover such a quiet and peaceful environment.

The atmosphere was so special that it really gives you a desire to come back. All respect for Natalia who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide!

Many thanks again and I recommend Vermontology Guided Tours to everyone!

It was my second time in Vermont and because I wanted to get to know this beautiful state better I decided to take a guided tour with Vermontology and Natalia. I feel like I won a Jackpot. Natalia was great, funny, outgoing and very knowledgable. She loves her Vermont, will show you a lot of beautiful places and will actually make you fall in love with her gorgeous state. As a foodie I enjoyed tasting locally produced food and liquors. Whether you want to observe glassblowing, visit the Trapp family Lodge, or simply walk in a beautiful little town, she will customize the tour to your needs. It was an amazing day, that I will remember for a long time. I will come back to Vermont to take another tour with Natalia.
