Since we only had a half day to spend in Tuscany, this trip was perfect. Learned a little about wine, tasted some great wine and food pairings, and enjoyed the free time in Greve in Chianti by having our own wine tasting in the town piazza. Guitano (our guide) and the sommelier clearly enjoy their jobs.
Loved this tour! Very informative. Invited us in with a nice Rose wine. Gave us loads of information on the region and wine making. Then we tried 3 redwines accompanied with delicious traditional snacks. We had a bit of free time afterwards for more wine tasting, gelato eating, and picture taking. It was a blast!
We loved this tour. It's very off the beaten path and in a beautiful area. We were lucky and got to go to Castello del Trebbio, which has some really amazing history and great wine. I've been on many winery/vinyard tours before, and was surprised by how much I learned on this tour.
The tour guides were great. The tour was a lot of fun and very well put together. The wine was great and the vineyard was beautiful. I would absolutely do the tour again! We had a blast!!!
I would absolutely recommend this. The bus tour guide was so sweet and the castle tour guide was fun and so knowledgeable!
Super easy pick up near the Stazione, smooth ride to the castle. The wine tour guide was amazing. He was passionate and extremely knowledgeable about different types of wine and olive oil. He had a great sense of humor. The castle has a great story behind it too! Def a must see in florence and a much needed break from all the walking sightseeing.
The tour commentary was quite good and the stories of the local guide kept our interest. Seeing the inside living spaces of the castle was a plus for this tour. The explanations of wine and olive oil making were excellent. The stop at the small church which was not lighted inside was a time filler. The wine tasting of 3 wines was sufficient and the three were well chosen to show distinctions. Most of us bought wine at the nice shop after the tasting so it was a success for all.
This was a spontaneous booking and definitely worth it!! I got a little church/museum'd out so this was a great value for money experience with some very nice wine tasting. A very interesting tour of the site too, info about production etc.
