This tour is all you would dream off. The view driving up to the vineyard was perfect. We had some incredible wine. The tour guide on bus and at the vineyard were awesome. You won regret a moment of it.
Decided to do a wine tasting tour last minute and found this one! Absolutely amazed!!! It was a wonderful experience and totally worth the money. We learned so much! The story behind the castle and winery is great too!
A really great experience. Good food, wine and safe transportation.
Do this tour! Bus ride to the vineyard isn't too long and the coach bus makes it an easy jaunt. You get a nice overview of the vineyard and winemaking process. However, it is by no means an in-depth tour of the vineyard. This tour really is a lot more about the wine tasting than it is about learning about the vineyard or winemaking. That being said, the wine tasting was awesome, as was the food! We're talking bottles on the table and giant plates full of really good snacks, all paired perfectly by the lovely guide/employee of the vineyard! By the time the bus leaves the vineyard, you will be full, you will be tipsy and you will have made some great new friends. The majority of the group on our tour decided to forego any exploration of the capital town of the Chianti region that they bring you to after the vineyard, instead preferring to visit the local wine shop for more wine tasting. This was quite enjoyable and recommended, unless you're a big history buff, to whom I might recommend wandering the town instead. We met so many awesome people on this tour, some of whom we spent the rest of the night eating dinner and gelato and drinking with. It really was one of the utmost highlights of our time in Florence and I am so glad we chose to do this tour!
AMAZING TOUR! Amazing scenery, just simply awesome! Don't even think twice, just book it you will not regret it!
It is always good to be back here in Chianti.
I took this tour twice and I still love it and would go for a third time
You should not miss this one at all.
One of the highlights of the trip. Fun, informative--a perfect half day excursion out of Florence.
This was an awesome tour. We did this towards the end of our honeymoon stay in Florence and it was worth every penny (Euro, I should say). The wine was great, the trip was scenic and fabulous and the people on the tour were very pleasant.
This was a great tour! The tour guide was awesome, nice and informative and the lady that gave us the tour at the castle was great. The wine was delicious and the castle was beautiful - everything you could imagine for a Tuscan wine tour!
Another really nice informative guide, Elena! One of the highlights of our trip. Everything was perfect. We had more wine and more food than we expected. We brought home a bottle of the red, the olive oil and the chile jam, all made there. Beautiful land!
This trip was perfect! We got onto a chartered bus and headed east of Florence into the Tuscan countryside. Our tour guide was great. She spoke great english, and had lots of energy. We stopped at a small town in the hills to take pictures and see an old church. Then, we continued to the vineyard, which was a castle! We received a great tour of the castle and wine cellar. Then we had a great tasting of three different wines with some traditional Italian snacks. Overall, it was a great time! If I was to change anything, I would have loved to learn/see more of the actual vineyards.
This was a fabulous tour if you want to visit Italy's countryside but don't have enough time to really venture out there. The bus stop was easy to find and our tour guide did a great job at giving us some history along the way! It was only about a 40 minute bus ride and the scenery along the way was gorgeous. The castle where the tour is was fantastic! Our guide there was very energetic and we learned a lot. On top of that, the wine was fantastic! During the tasting, they give you samples of authentic food to try a long with the wine. We just loved it (and went home with a few bottles)! The stop in Greve is the icing on the cake. It's a quaint little town that really gives you the feel of Tuscany! I highly recommend this tour. We were not disappointed!
