My Review

This is a hard tour to review because while it was highly informative and interesting, it's much too long. Our tour ended up being close to four hours due to the crowds. Our guide (Scarlet) had a wealth of knowledge and brought interesting books and pictures to show to us during down time, but I felt that she made no effort to make sure that everyone was getting a chance to see the artifacts she brought. In fact towards the end it felt like she was ignoring my family on purpose, which came off very rude. This might be a good tour during a different day with a different tour under different circumstances, but I cannot recommend.

Can't leave Florence without doing this trip!

Florence

My Recommendation Tip

I can't recommend this trip, or our guide, highly enough! Gianluca was knowledgable, funny, patient, and really made a huge difference in my family's experience of Tuscany. The wine pours were perfect, and although we are not a family to bring back souvenirs, we ended up buying 6 bottles and 2 jars of Tuscany honey. The countryside is something to be seen, and you really will leave the tour with a greater wealth of knowledge about the wine making process in the region. I feel like I severely undertipped Gianluca, but I hope he knows we cannot thank him enough for making our trip memorable!

My Review

Easily the highlight of our time in Italy. No one should leave Italy without doing this tour, and everyone should request Gianluca. He spent a lot of time getting to know us and answered all of our questions on not only wine but Italian culture and people. He took us on some unplanned side trips which were a pleasant surprise! On top of that, the wine was good, the food was plenty, and the ride was safe and comfortable. I would recommend this to everyone!

My Review

Our tour guide was fantastic! Very full of life and joked and information about our stops and destinations. The scenery really blew our expectations out of the water. The optional lunch here was a mixed review from my family. I enjoyed it but some members said they could have done without. Definitely bring a camera with you on the tour. Recommended, even if it is a bit pricey!
