Client Comments

It's not possible to overstate the food and wines on this trip. I have never experienced anything like this.
— Carol B., Redwood City, CA
The trip was great; I would recommend it to anyone. I was surprised at the quantity and quality of the food and wine. I really enjoyed the various food related excursions. It was a great group. Everyone seemed to get along fine. Being a first-time traveler with Wilderness, I was amazed at how many times the other members had traveled with your company—it certainly is a testament to the quality of your trips.
— John T., Park Ridge, IL
The trip rates very high. Hikes were varied in level of difficulty, length, location. Hotels were very nice: excellent locations, vistas, food, and amenities. Activities were excellent...castles, cheese, wine, prosciutto—interesting and good choices for the overall experience. Loved meeting Mario in our vineyard tour!

The variety of cultural experiences woven in was great—from historical sites to cheese making!

We really enjoyed the food adventures, the tours of the cheese places, cooking with the chef, and the art and historical tours. The group of people and guides were terrific as well, adding up to a memorable trip!

The trip was well run, wrinkle-free, everyone well cared for, all expectations met or exceeded... just as we have come to expect from WT.
— Bill S., Boiling Springs, PA
The trip was thoughtfully designed and smoothly executed. We appreciated the lovely and varied hikes, the variety of cultural activities (especially the visits to Guffanti and Antica Corte Pallavicina), the fabulous dining, and the overall atmosphere created by our guides. This was our second WT trip and we are looking forward to more.

I have taken other 'trips of a lifetime' with WT and this one was no exception! One cannot help but live in the moment on such a wonderful journey. Very well done!

A fabulous combination of hiking in gorgeous areas and out of this world gourmet food along with cheese producers, wineries, cooking lessons, and fabulous hotels and chateaus. A feast for the eye, nose, and stomach.
