Absolutely a must while you are in Bronte, the experience it was stunning, the farmer takes you to her family fields to show you where the Pistacchio are “born” and she is very descriptive! The tasting at the restaurant was supreme!
Thank you so much for this incredible experience

We had our tour (pistachio tour with dinner) in 16.09.2021. Me and my friend had really great experience! Our guide and her colleague were so welcoming and friendly! We were excited to see real pistachio trees and the whole process of production.

We had lovely dinner afterwards – after dinner we were full! As a dessert I recommend to choose tiramisu, but cake was good too.

I’m foodie and this tour was a treat for me!
