Great way to get out of the hustle of the city center of Firenze and into the country side! Food and wine were great, as was our wine-farm host

This tour was by far 1 of my top favorites if not thee favorite! Great way to see Tuscany. Chianti was fabulous with great wine tasting along with cheese, bread, olive oil and jam tastings. Afterward I can pretty much say we all bought multiple items to take home (airlines usually allow 2 bottles of wine per suitcase or they give you the option to ship items home too). We stopped along the way in great little quaint towns where we had additional time to shop, take pictures and drink more wine. Lastly, we finished off at a cute cottage like tuscany restaurant where we drank more wonderful wine and plenty of food to go around. Overall we were very pleased with this tour. I will note that the roads are very windy so keep in mind if you might get bus sick. Also bring mosquito spray!

A thoroughly enjoyed half day tour that I would gladly do again. We visited a beautiful winery where we were welcomed by a lovely lady that showed us their property which was once a castle, created into a farmhouse. A very knowledgable guide who informed us everything about wine. Then we sat down and enjoyed 3 different wines with a selection of cured meats, cheeses and breads. It was a really good idea to put each wine with a selected piece of food in order to appreciate both things more. Everyone was so impressed, that each person bought something at the winery! We travelled to Greve and Castellina, spending 40 minutes in each Chianti village for free time, before arriving to a small town for our 3 course meal. The food did not disappoint, each meal was delicious and impressive. The two pasta dishes were amazing, and the main course included multiple side dishes too. Dessert was a yummy tiramisu. Would definetely reccommend this tour for anyone wanting to spend time in the Chianti region and learn about the delicious wines. Thank you Viator and CAF tours for organising a great tour!

What a brilliant day out!! From the views you get to see travelling from one place to another, to the wonderful little villages you get to visit, it was fantastic. The wine tour around the castle was extremely enjoyable and informative and the wine tasting was of course wondeful.
I would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys wine and wants to see the beautiful countryside of Tuscany!

Booked this tour months in advance and was not disappointed. Everything was perfect and together with a coach load of people from Aberdeen to Adelaide my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
The guide was excellent and very informative and the format of the trip well designed and conducted at a pace suitable for all age groups.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip to anyone who has an interest in Italian wine, countryside, food and culture in general.

This was one of the highlights of the trip. I would recommend this for anybody travelling to Florence who would like a tour of the Tuscany Hills. The guide was English speaking and was very friendly. The wine tasting tour was interesting and even though it was thundering and pouring with rain outside, it didn't matter. Old towns to visit, lots of history and beauty. The fab four course meal was welcome after an afternoon of fun!

This tour was such fun. We were 2 Brits in a group of 35 North Americans and everyone was great. The wine tasting and snack was excellent. The short stay visits to villages in the countryside were marvellous too. The meal, company and scenery was superb. We had excellent weather too which made it just perfect. Have used Viator before and will again.

What an incredible afternoon this was! My husband and I were on our honeymoon and found it to be the most perfect tour. Wine and snackies, old castles, villages with even more wine opportunities? What more could we ask for!! The dinner was absolutely superb with wine on top of that! Will never forget this tour.

The tour guide was wonderful and made us feel welcome. We weren't rushed and had plenty of time to relax and savor the setting as well as the wine and food. This enabled us to enjoy new friends we met on the tour. I appreciate hearing about the opportunities to purchase the wine - but without a hard sell. Guess what? I bought the wine because it sold itself!!

The fact that it was harvest season made it even better.

I recommend this tour!

Was not sure how we would enjoy this trip to the wine country and I have to say it was a pleasant surprise. We travelled with a great group (half were Canadians!!!) and the views of the Tusan country side were beautiful. The wine tasting tour was great and our host was engaging. I recommend doing the dinner and ordering the steak which was absolutely delicious!

This tour was my favorite part of our entire trip to Europe! The tour guide was excellent... she gave us some history and background on the region while we were on the bus. I think it was about 30 minutes to the first stop (the winery) where we learned about the wine making process and then sampled some wines along with some delicious appetizer pairings. They had a shop at the winery but did not pressure you to buy anything. The prices were reasonable as well. Then we went on to explore two more tiny towns in Tuscany. It was nice to see these quaint small towns bc they were so much different than the larger cities we visited on our trip. The rolling hills in Tuscany were beautiful even in early April when nothing was growing! Then we ended the night at a restaurant in Sienna where the food was excellent. We even made some friends on the tour that we ended up spending a day with in Rome. I highly recommend this tour.. it was well worth it!

We went are a large party, day aftera wedding - It was well organised and the guide was very good. The meal was excellent and the day finished well.
My only comment was that because it was October the visit to last the town was unnecessary as it was dark, probably in high summer it would be great.
