I booked this tour primarily to be assured tickets to 'The Last Supper' but was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the remainder of the itinerary. I had expected more of a "drive-by with less access. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and kept the group close to schedule despite some wanderers. I was less impressed with the Zani Viaggi office staff and bus driver, who were less than cordial and not very helpful.
I enjoyed this adventure thoroughly. Our guide, Joseph, was prompt, courteous, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable about the Chianti region and viniculture. The horses were predictably plodding, but none of us wanted to go zooming through the vineyards anyway. I was pleased to see that they are well cared for. Lunch at the estate was delicious, and touring the cellars was interesting and not merely a repeat of a California winery tour. The rules and regs for creating Chianti Classico are very interesting. I can harly wait for my shipment of wine and olive oil to arrive!
