First time visit was fantastic! We just loved getting all the history regarding the Chianti region and specifically the "castle" - Castello del Trebbio. The guide was quite informative but enjoyed the english guide at the castle much more and found her more relaxed. She kept a good pace and had everyone laughing. The best part was the winetasting - she explained in detail and we learned to appreciate good wines. We recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence if it is the only thing you or have time for. Thank you.
This tour was my favorite part of our trip to Italy. It was informative, relaxed, full of food, wine and fun. At the winery, we sat at large tables and were able to meet other people and enjoy the experience with old and new friends. The trip was well-timed and we even had some time after the winery to stop at a local village square and sample more wine! My only suggestion would be to improve the speaker system on the tour bus. It was difficult to hear the tour guide over the speakers.
Woo Hoo Fun trip. Good wine and snacks. Very good winery host and guide
The best tour guide ever! Had much more than expected, loved the castle, wine tour was fabulous, lots of interesting stories and information! Great food and wine and beautiful country side!
This tour is a must. Not only was it a wonderful tour in the countryside and a tour of an ancient castle/winery but as a bonus we were educated about the production of olive oil.
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!
This is a great way to spend an afternoon if you are staying in Florence. The countryside was astonishingly beautiful and the castle tour was excellent.
I loved this trip! I believe our guide was named Irene and she was amazing. She knew her stuff and was very friendly. I enjoyed our stop in Greve in Chianti and the winery itself was very fun and informative. No negatives to this wonderful wine tasting trip!
A really great experience. Good food, wine and safe transportation.
I was a little hesitant to book a tour in another country on what I perceived to be a "random" website but having just returned from Italy I can say that the winery tour and tasting was easily top 5 favorite parts about the trip. Finding the bus was easy, the ride was short and beautiful, and our guide Marta was hilarious: I LOVED hearing the history of the castle. The wine and snacks were SO tasty (I don't even like red wine and the chianti classico is now a favorite!) Such a worthwhile trip and such a unique experience to get to get out of the heart of Florence and into the beautiful countryside. HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!
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.
