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

It's going to be hard to capture the magical 5-day tour I had with Natalia's guided Vermontology... read more

My wife and I had a fantastic time with Natalia as she took us through Vermont's Mad River Valley region. Coming from Australia, we knew nothing about Vermont's rich history and culture getting on the bus, but hopping off we felt like we knew it intimately. Natalia is extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and was open and flexible to what we wanted to see and do. If you only have a few days in Vermont as we did, and want to see it all, this is the tour for you. Highly recommended!

My husband and I truly enjoyed both tours we did with Vermontology. Natalia was amazing. She promptly picked us up at our hotel. We were then joined by another couple (Hi Sue and Eric!) and off we went to explore. The first day was the Waterbury-Stowe Day Tour. It was great! Loved all the sites especially the Trapp Family Lodge. Natalia is very knowledgeable and gives you a bit of history of each location. You also get free time to walk around on your own at Stowe Village.

The second day was the Woodstock-Quechee Day Tour. My husband and I were the only couple on the tour that day and the weather was not cooperating but we still had a wonderful time with Natalia. We really enjoyed the Rockefeller Mansion and Billings Farm & Museum. The Quechee Antique Mall was a lot of fun also. My husband truly enjoyed sampling ALL the Cabot cheeses...he must have sampled them all at least 2-3 times as he kept going back for more!

We really recommend these tours as you get to see Vermont through the eyes of a local...plus Natalia is really awesome and she makes you feel really comfortable. She’s great! Book your tours with Vermontology as you won’t regret it!

Thanks Natalia for making our first trip to Vermont so memorable...can’t wait to see you again!

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!
