Adrienne was fabulous. The driver was great, as was the van. The only improvement we could think of was a small ‘welcome’ glass of wine when we arrived, since the touring took a lot of time
At first we were a little apprehensive that this would work as a family, but Adrienne had such a delightful way of both keeping our children fascinated with the castle and sharing so much knowledge of food and wine with us! It did truly work and we all loved it. The location was perfect and Adrienne was lovely! She was able to charm our children into going with her while we enjoyed some wine (they are usually shy with strangers if we are not around), and she was able to contextualize the entire experience on so many levels - the culture of Tuscany, the culture of old-world wine making and food, and even the culture of "castle-life" for our kids! AMAZING one person could do all that so graciously.
I have already commented on this tour. Overall we are incredibly disappointed that we did the tour. The docent was great with the kids and seemed knowledgeable. There was clearly some issue between the employee and the docent at the end of the tour as there was (what seemed like a somewhat heated) conversation between them in italian that left us feeling uncomfortable and completely ignored. In fact at one point I stood at the counter next to them waiting for them to stop talking as I had a question, after several minutes with them continuing their discussion I walked away. I certainly wouldn't recommend this tour to anyone. I have also been disappointed as to how Context has handled it. I don't believe it to be the job of the customer to follow up with the process of a complaint.
