The tour was very enjoyable and the guide was pleasant and informative. The 2 wine tastings were delicious and the town stops were interesting and well timed.
Of course the views were breathtaking and everything you'd expect from the region.
I'd recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence who wants to get a taste of Tuscany without renting a car.
The bus ride home could have benefited from wine being served on board :
Tour is really good value for money. We visited two wineries. First winery was perfect, we tried 4 wines and one olive oil. Hosts were very friendly and answering all questions. We had enough time to take photos and to buy wine in wine shop.
Visit to second winery was not as good as first winery, even tough wine was better quality in second winery. Reason is very limited time. Hosts were obviously in rush to be done with us asap. We stayed in winery for 30min, while tasting 4 different wines. All wines were very high quality, but I could not finish my first glass and host was already pouring second. I didn't like they rushed me..
Visit to small towns in between winery visits was very nice.
I would definitely recommend this tour!
I loved it! The tour was incredible and the wines were amazing. Totally worth it!
I went on this trip while spending a weekend in Florence with friends. We had an incredible day at the beautiful vineyards and loved all of the wines and food we sampled. The two stops in the small towns were not completely necessary in our opinion, but we didn't mind because both vineyard stops were so great.
Wonderful afternoon out of Florence. Knowledgeable guide, beautiful weather and a nice group of people on the tour. First vineyard was by-far the best of the two. Most information shared and better wines I thought plus great olive oils. A few add'l stops in quaint towns made this an very enjoyable afternoon.
This was the highlight of our trip to Florence and possibly our entire trip to Italy. The Tuscan countryside was absolutely beautiful and Gaetano was a wonderful tour guide! We had so much fun at both wineries and were really happy with the amount of wine, food and olive oil we got to taste. The two little villages we visited were just like out of the movies - a beautiful look into authentic Italian living. If you want to see this part of Italy and don't have a lot of time I would definitely recommend this tour as you get to see and experience so much in one afternoon.
TIP 1: the tour info says it's a 5-hour tour but when you tack on the travel it works out closer to 6. We did the 1:45pm tour and arrived back in Florence at 8pm.
TIP 2: don't put any wine or bottles you purchase at the wineries on the shelf of the bus - they will fall off and break, we learned that the hard way!
My Tuscany Wine-Tasting tour was delightful from the easy meeting point to the end. Our guide, Leesa, was knowledgable and friendly. The visit to the two different wineries gave us a chance to see a classic and more modern process. The stops at the the 2 villages were the bonus that were the frosting on the cake. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to enjoy the Italian countryside!
We had a lovely time during this Chianti wine tasting trip. It lasted longer than expected... but why not : We tasted 8 different wines, authentic local balsamic and olive oil, learnt about the different wines and methods used in production, we also took breaks in between to walk around, enjoy the lovely landscape and take pictures.
Lovely tour. Lisa not sure if that is the correct spelling for her name was our tour guide. She was very sweet. Gave enough information and did not talk incessantly. We actually ended up with her as our tour guide two days in a row. It was two different trips and two different companies. She was very sweet to my mother in law who got sciatica right before our trip and had a hard time walking and with stairs.
Everything was AMAZING!
It was easy to find the bus for pick up, which is always a concern of mine. From the moment we arrived everything went smoothly. It was a 12 passenger van, and there were 10 people 4 couples, 1 mother/daughter pair on our trip. Started as strangers, by the end we were all laughing and joking. Our driver was great, and the tour guide knew lots of information about the city and each of the wineries we visited. The first place we visited, Il Palagio, was definitely the overall favorite of the tour. Great wine, great olive oil, and everyone on our tour bought both before leaving.
Highly recommend this tour!
The tour was fantastic! The guide was pleasant and knowledgable about the region, and the vintners were very gracious hosts. Highly recommend this tour.
I loved this wine tour and wineries we visited. I also thought the tour guide was great and had a lot of information about Florence and the Tuscany area. I would definitely sign up for another tour on a future trip to Florence.
Best 45 euro I have spent. Amazing wine and great tours. Tour guide was great, as well- very friendly and funny. All around very enjoyable.
It was a great time- great tour guides, great food, and great wine of course. Had about 10 samples of wine, it was way too much for me! However, it was great and I recommended this tour to my classmates. I thought it was definitely worth the price.
Wonderful tour! We thorougly enjoyed each winery and our tour guide Deborah was great. We would highly recommend this tour.
Very nice and helpful tour guide Lucia, we really enjoyed this trip!! highly recommended :
The rainy weather didn't stop this tour from being wonderful! The winery's were fantastic and the tour guide was really well informed. We met lovely people and had a great time!
This tour was such a great experience. A friend of mine had recommended it to me and built up my expectations every expectation was met and surpassed on the trip. The wine, olive oils, and cheeses were simply amazing. I will recommend this tour to anyone I know going to Florence !
This was a great tour. The wineries that we visited were awesome and our whole group felt that we got a lot for what we paid. Our tour guide Lucia absolutely made this trip! She was amazing...so kind and knowledgeable. We loved her!!!!
