A wonderful experience for the three of us including our 9 year old daughter. This was a glimpse of the local cooking style and an small introduction into the local way of life. Highly recommend this personalized experience. Hosts were fantastic. The location is a little hard to find so make sure you know where you are going before you head off.

We had a simple but acceptable wine tasting tour -- but not an Olive Oil Tour! We're so disappointed. As for olives/olive oil: (1) we were shown one machine next to the wine barrels where olive oil is processed, (2) our guide informed us her family goes through one bottle of olive oil in about 3 days, and (3) olive oil was drizzled on our bruschetta. Other issues: (1) our tour voucher did not indicate pick-up location nor tour location; when we called to clarify, we learned the tour was in Montefalco, too far to travel ourselves. We arranged transportation for 50 Euros. In fact, the tour location was 3.4 km away! (2) the tour is advertised as 3 hours. In fact, even with the drive from our residence to the tour location, we left and returned within 2.5 hours. (3) but most importantly, this was a wine tour, not an olive oil tour. We have a separate advertised wine tour scheduled for this afternoon. Good points: the guide, the lunch, and the wines were very nice. BUT WE WANTED AN OLIVE OIL TOUR!

Response from freddy1984C, Responsabile relazioni con la clientela at Curioseety Umbria
Responded 20 May 2019
Hello, thanks for your review, we appreciate critics for being better. We are very sorry to read such a review. Our supplier is a small olive oil producer, and this makes this experience more authentic. The extra virgin olive oil is one of the best in the area because the philosophy of the owner is that the quality is more important than the quantity. We are glad you enjoyed the lunch and the wines, and that our passionate guide shared with you his secrets and tips. After booking, we communicate the exact meeting point: we are sorry that your accommodation was far away from the olive oil mill. We regret that we could not arrange your transfer. Next time we will be more helpful, just contact us in advance. We will be more than happy to organize for you another experience. Best Regards, The Curioseety Team
