The trip was excellent value for money. On the day we went it was raining heavily, very unusual for the time of year apparently, but we still enjoyed it. The tour itself isn't too long or boring and you get to see the castle and where all the wines are stored etc. The tour guide thought himself a bit of a comedian but his English was excellent and he was very informative. We got to try 3 different wines and got a little snack also but don't go there hungry as there wasn't much to eat!. When we had finshed the tasting we got a little time to visit the gift shop and explore the grounds, which were beautiful. We bought 2 bottles of red and some olive oil and it wasn't too expensive. The guide on the bus as we travelled to Chianti gave us information on the area and on the tour we would get at the castle, and she was very good.
Overall we'd reccomment this trip to anyone who wants to see a little of the countryside, which is a nice change to the hustle and bustle of the cities. It is so beautiful and peaceful, and just the right length of time when you want to see so many places whilst in Italy!
