Reviews

Please note:

Prior to 2021, Frank, a member of the family, led the tour of the village. The tour is now with a local guide.

Sarah July 2020 – Last night was great. Frank was incredibly interesting and the food was delicious. Had a great time. Thanks for organizing it for me.

Janet September 2019 – We especially enjoyed our tour of the island with Nicola and then our special dinner with Frank in Zrnovo.  We have many great memories from your island to take home with us. Thank you for all your invaluable assistance with these arrangements.

Lynn June 2019 – Quick note to say thank you for arranging the visit to Belin. It was lovely. It was a pleasure to get a quick glimpse of the family and Zrnovo village life. Travel arrangements were spot on.

Charity, September 2018 – The tour with Frank was nice! We had anticipated learning more about making macaroni, the history, mixing ingredients- not just rolling it. We appreciate you accommodating our last minute request. Thank you!

James, August 2018 – We’ve just returned from the walking and culinary tour in Zrnovo. We had a fantastic time, the food was great and the tour of the village with Frank was really interesting.

Kathleen, July 2018 – Frank and his family were warm and welcoming.  My group and I really enjoyed.  There is nothing I would recommend that you do differently. It was easy to find the driver and the timing was perfect for the entire tour.

Thanks again!  My great grandparents actually came from Zrnovo and Frank was able to provide some information after we showed him some photos!  He truly is a great blend of historian, chef, and wine maker.

Doreen, July 2018 – We enjoyed the tour and dinner and appreciated that they were able to accommodate us, even with 3 large groups that night. The food was delicious and more than generous portions. We were checked on frequently and even provided with insect repellant and a sample of the tomatoes that were growing right next to our table! The mosquitoes were out in force that night. My only recommendations – be prepared for biting insects and come with a healthy appetite.
