Perfect for solo travellers!
It was easy getting to know the others and you could walk around alone if you preferred. It was all very suitable for solo travellers. Excellent way of seeing lots of fascinating places in a vast area, the minibus was comfy and the driving was safe and skillful.
Avoiding mass tourism locations, landscapes so beautiful that you could look at them for hours (all those vineyards...), wonderful sights and buildings, activities/walks which suit just about everyone, lovely food, interesting wine tastings (even if you´re not a wine lover) and excellent company – new friends! For me it was the perfect holiday, I only wish it lasted longer!
- Lake Orta. Such a sweet place and a nice little boat ride to the island.
- The fresh mountain air of Bielmonte and the hike there (bring trainers!).
- Forte di Bard and San Michele. Wonderfully located places with lots of history.
- The night walk in the woods and dinner by the lake. Just lovely!
- Making tagliatelle.
- Barbaresco was my favourite place of all. Beautifully located, a stylish and relaxing place to be. The Langhe region in general was special indeed.
- All the tastings.
I enjoyed everything and can honestly say I would do it again!
Wonderful tour in Piedmont!
If you wish to see Piedmont outside the cities, the tour is definitely worth considering.
The fans of Italian food and wine won't be disappointed. I found the winery visits very interesting and enjoyed the tastings. I wish I could get the wild boar stew we had in Bielmonte also at home. : ) Luckily, some of the wines we were able to bring home.
The tour also provided plenty to see if you are interested in the history, architecture and the art of the area.
I learned more about the local wild life and nature, too. On our night walk, the "terre ballerine" (the dancing trees) was something that I had not seen before.
I was traveling with my boyfriend, but this tour will also work well for solo travelers or groups of friends, for instance. On many of the stops you had the option to explore by yourself or visit places as a part of the group. In Langhe, for instance, the whole group had dinner together under the stars in our nice hotel in the midst of the beautiful wine fields, which was a lovely experience. Then in Lake Orta, for example, we went around by ourselves a bit.
For us, the Giroola tour was a very positive experience : )
