Cristina was wonderful, open and friendly. The wine tasting was a lot of fun. Cristina has unbelievable knowledge about wine, but also about food. We have learnt a lot and have discovered new senses. Through them, drinking wine has become a completely new experience. Thanks to you, Cristina! P.S. Your pizza recommendation was great as well!

Cristina was very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable, the meeting point was tailored to very close to where we were staying. It was a surprise for my sisters birthday and it couldn’t have been any better! We were the only two on the tour and were greeted by the owner of the vineyard and shown all the stages of wine making. We went at a time of harvest so it was all systems go!! It was great to see such a family orientated business and to top it off the wine was great! Thank you so much Cristina, we had a wonderful time and would 100% recommend to anyone.

Cristina is an incredible guide! She allowed me to tour with her the entire day as I was travelling alone and wanted to see a few experiences. We went to the market, the olive oil mill, and the winery! We began at the market and she took the time to take me around the stalls and teach me about the different local products. She had some of her favourite stalls for each product I asked her for- you can tell she genuinely loves these things and has real relationships there. The people we met at the market were so friendly and fun! We sampled tons of things and she even brought a cooler bag to keep everything cool in her car when we continued our day. Next we drove to the olive oil mill. This was amazing! The managers were so friendly and taught me a lot. We sampled different oils and saw how it’s made. We were the only ones there since they had just had a big tour right before us. Afterwards, we went to the winery. The owner of the winery was so welcoming and having Cristina as well was priceless! She is a sommelier and after a tour, we sat down and she taught me how to taste and describe wine like an expert. Plus we had delicious food. I liked the wine so much I left with a couple bottles. She also had a folder ready for me with her favourite recipes and tips for wine tasting. She drove me back to my Airbnb afterwards and even texted me with recommendations for local places. She went above and beyond and became not just a guide, but a friend. Grazie Cristina!

Cristina est chaleureuse et parle très bien français. La visite était en anglais mais très claire. La cave et ses alentours sont magnifiques et la dégustation était un délice ! Une visite simple et intimiste (4 visiteurs au total). Nous avons pu goûter à de bons vins et produits du terroir devant une vue magnifique, avec des explications intéressantes et adaptées à notre niveau de connaissance fournies par Cristina. On recommande vivement !

Bella Cristina ciao di Sergio e Alessandra! Molto baci e grazie ancora, Cristina is a true expert and the wine tasting overlooking some of the most spectacular vineyards was perfect! We felt right at home and connected immediately. Cristina, you’re always welcome when you come visit Canada xxx.

Cristina was so nice and I enjoyed a wonderful wine tasting with her. She was so knowledgeable and patient while she guided me through the tasting. She helped me discovering my senses while smelling and tasting the wines. She also prepared some informative material I could bring home after the experience. The wines we tasted were all from Sardinia and Cristina personally knows some of the producers. I also tasted some delicious cold cuts and cheeses. I'd highly recommend Cristina's experience to anyone!

Cristina is a very good host and gave us an excellent tour of the market. She knows the market traders and makes good conversations with them. We learnt all about the unique foods of Sardinia and the history of the food. At the end the tasting for the wine and meats is excellent and explained by a well known local cheese expert. A very good experience.

I had a great time touring the market with Cristina! She’s a professional sommelier and was very knowledgeable about the different products I got to try. She also knew all of the vendors at the market and introduced me to things I had never seen before. I got to try different sweets, cheeses, meats, and a little bit of wine too! She gave me some excellent recommendations for what to do with my time here. I would without a doubt recommend this experience to a friend!

I had the most wonderful afternoon with Cristina! The vineyard was amazing and the wines were delicious. I cannot recommend this tour enough and hope to do more with her on future trips to this gorgeous area. Definitely book an experience with her and you will not regret it!

If you’re looking to dive deep into what’s described as the largest covered market in Europe, then Maria Cristina’s the perfect choice. With the widest selection of fresh vegetables, local meats and just-caught seafood, and if you’re lucky enough to have access to a kitchen, Maria Cristina can help put together a meal of the choicest products. I didn’t have a kitchen but came away with a delicious assortment of Sardinian cheese and cured meats, then Maria Cristina help me select a sampling of half bottles of local wine from the nearby enoteca. Pro tip: The Orto Botanico di Cagliari is about a 20 minute walk from the market and, with some tables available as well as plenty of benches, makes for a wonderful setting for a picnic following a market visit.

Cristina is such a wonderful guide! She is knowledgeable and was patient with all of my questions. Her passion for food and wine are palpable and contagious. You will want her to guide you through all of Cagliari. The actual tour was great! Cristina guides you through the many stalls and explains the history and has you try many of the Sardinian specialties for yourself. The format for the tour, besides the tastings, are molded to your liking. My only regret is I wasn't able to schedule her other tours before I left Sardegna. When I return, I plan to immediately book one of her other tours. Wishing you the best of luck, Cristina!

I would highly recommend this market tour as a most informative and pleasant time spent with Maria Cristina and her lovely co-host at the market this morning. A wonderful and fun way to learn more about Sardinia’s unique food culture. Well done - loved it... from Aussie traveller, Anne

Maria Cristina and her cohost gave an exceptional tour of the Sardinian culinary treasures at the amazing fresh food market. The varieties and quality of fresh fish was a ‘wow’ factor as well as the cheeses. Thoroughly recommend touring the fresh markets with Maria Cristina.

Christina’s market experience was absolutely amazing. From the history of the market place to products exported from this region around the world, Christina provided a phenomenal experience. I would highly recommend her tour and if back in this region, would love to do it again as I’m sure there is more stuff to learn and experience.

I love markets. Whenever I go to a city the first place I go to have an idea of the place is the market which is a mirror of the living soul of a city. Cristina is passionate and prepared and opened San Benedetto market to my eyes and feelings. She introduced me to new flavours and typical products and made me get to know interesting people of the market. A very interesting and pleasant couple of Hours

We met Cristina at the train station and we drove to the sub region of Parteolla. We had a tour of the winery and their wine making process. We than tasted four wines while munching salume and cheese. Cristina was a very knowledgeable and engaging woman whose passion for wine was very visible . We spent a total of 3 wonderful hours. We would recommend this excursion to everyone.

We had an absolutely fantastic time on our trip. Cristina was a fantastic host and we learnt a lot about the local wines and area (we even received some tips for where to go that evening). Cristina picked us up from a place convenient for us, and took us to a gorgeous vineyard. We were especially lucky as we had the tour pretty much to ourselves, and even got to see the wine being bottled which we were told was a very rare treat! It was one of the highlights of our trip and we would really recommend it!

Bonjour, Maria Cristina est exceptionnelle !! Agréable et super attentionnée !! Nous avons passé un excellent moment à ces côtés, elle nous a fait découvrir son pays par l’intermédiaire du marché de Cagliari, elle connaît très bien la Sardaigne et elle a su nous faire partager ces connaissances avec beaucoup de générosité!!! elle est simplement GÉNIALE !!! On a passé un moment inoubliable à ces côtés et chose importante pour nous : elle parle couramment français, ce qui nous a bien aidé car nous étions 2 adultes et 4 adolescents qui ne parlons pas italien , bref QUE DU BONHEUR!!! Nous vous la conseillons sans aucune hésitation!!!

This was a must-do, wonderful experience! You get to spend time with local Sardinians who know a lot about wine and their region while visiting a local vineyard. I had such a good time with them - felt like I left with friends! Highly recommend it.

Super expérience avec Maria Cristina!! Le trajet en voiture jusqu'à la cave a été très agréable, ponctué par une présentation du monde des vins et des traditions gastronomiques de la Sardaigne. La cave était superbe avec une vue magnifique sur les vignobles. J'ai beaucoup apprécié la dégustation des vins qui était accompagnée de délicieux produits du terroir. J'ai particulièrement apprécié le vin rosé qui était fruité et frais. Maria Cristina sait transmettre ses connaissances et sa passion pour l'oenologie, qu'elle nous fait partager avec beaucoup d'enthousiasme! Amateur de vins, je vous conseille cette expérience de toute évidence!
