My Review

We did this tour the 5th day of our stay in the area. We learned so MUCH we were glad we did it. Our tour guides were excellent. Our error was we had been going full tilt and by the time we got to Thursday, we were getting tired. We kept up with the morning part, but after lunch, we were ready for a nap, not a tour. We stuck it out but would do them on two different days next time.

My Review

The bike tour was fabulous! Joseph, our guide was so knowledgeable it was educational as well as good exercise and simply beautiful. On our first stop, he told us about the Chianti wine region and the requirements for a wine to be considered Classico Chianti. Then we biked on to our next stop for coffee and more information about the wine, meats, cheeses and bakery in the shop. Then on to the winery with a history lesson of the area during WWII as well as a tour of the winery with more information (Joseph loves this area and it shows in his presentations). Lunch was great and I biked after having wine!! ;) Next to the gellato shop, delicious! Then the balance of the ride was down hill!!! YES!!! There are long gradual hills, but Joseph circled back and encouraged the slower ones without making them feel like slackers! I would do this again!
