Selected Tours

Patrick helped us organize a fun day out that included a private ferry ride, cycling around the Torbiere natural reserve, and a wine tour/tasting in the local vineyards. Being friendly and reliable, it was a great pleasure to organize this with him & I highly recommend that he shows you a thing or two when visiting the Iseo region!

Together with my team I enjoyed a really nice activity guided by Patrick that included a bike tour through the wine yards and natural reserves around lake Iseo and a wine tasting in the Francia Corta wine region. Patrick was knowledgeable in the region and provided interesting trivia during our bike tour. I can definitely recommend hiring Patrick as your guide if you want to enjoy a fun outdoor activity when you are in the region.
