Of my Family's two weeks in Italy, this tour was the highlight of the trip. It was unanimously the best experience all 8 of us had. Even if you are not into wine, it is great tour. If you enjoy wine, then this is a must. The three vineyards (Piombaia, Molino di Sant' Antimo, and Il Paradiso di Frassina) were great, and all showcased differences in winemaking technique and philosophy. The Lunch we ate in one of the winemaker's homes was cooked by the wife of the vineyard owner, and was the best meal of our trip. We also enjoyed time in Montalcino, and a small church nearby. Milo, the tour guide did an amazing job and kept us informed with information about Siena, Montalcino, the local wines, and customs. This is a must see for wine lovers, or those who simply want to get a closer look at a more personal side of Tuscany. Set aside some extra money for purchasing some wines, you will definitely want to take some with you.
If you want to live Siena and taste San Gimignano in one glorious afternoon, then you will enjoy this tour. Lilo's grandmother's homemade lasagna and award-winning wine continue to make me smile!
Great mix of wineries and the guide was extremely knowledgable and passionate and engaging! 5/5 stars for him!
The tour was amazing, the tour guide was very knowledgeable would recommend to anyone
great time exploring Tuscany and learning about Brunello (our new favorite) wines. Our host was very informative and fun. Lunch was delicious.
I have been to Siena and San G before. This time I enjoyed it more. We were 2 couples and the guide, Jocopo. He was a delight, and spoke English well. I don't drink alcohol, but my husband does, so I didn't expect much from the wine tasting. Was I ever wrong! It was the highlight of the tour. I tasted all wine, and was very glad that I did. It was so much fun. The dinner was good, and the gal explaining the wines, etc. was terrific. She was friendly and had a good sense of humor. I definitely recommend this tour.
A terrific day spent in a small group visiting boutique wineries - off the toutist track. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and he made our day that much more fun. The lunch at the winery was superb. Expensive tour but worth it.
What a great guide, great vineyards we visited. The lunch was superb, the wines fantastic!
Great tour, great wine, great guide.
We had a marvelous time with our guide, Daniele, and the rest of the folks on our bus. We were comfortably driven around much of the Chianti region visiting the Ricosoli Estate and enjoyed a wonderful lunch and tasting at the Montechiaro estate.
Do yourself a favor and take this tour when you're in Tuscany. It may very well have been the highlight of our entire Italian two week holiday!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Danielle (sp?), did a great job and took us to different wineries with passionate winemasters. The lunch was outstanding. We brought 3 bottles of wine which we happily consumed while in Florence.
This was the best tour we had to date! We loved our guide, he took us to small boutique wineries. Piombaia, Molino Sant' Antimo and Il Paradiso di Franssina. Lunch was the BEST meal we had on our whole trip. Cooked for us by the italian mama. Wines were outstanding. I will never forget this!
Trip was excellent. We had really good guide, who knew so much about wines and the region. Landscape is beatiful and wineries we visited were good. Day in Montalcino was absolutely great!!!
This was a fantastic tour -- really a highlight of our family's trip to the Florence area. Leonardo was an engaging and informative guide throughout the day and we enjoyed the personal touches at each of the wineries including lunch at our middle stop. Highly recommended!
Wonderful tour. Our guide Daniele was very knowledgable and patient. The farms we visited were beautiful and of course the wine was outstanding! With only 4 people on the tour it was relaxing and a lot of fun!
Absolutely excellent. Milo was a great tour leader. The wineries we visited were great. I would highly recommend the tour.
