What a fantastic day! We started at 2 pm for a wine and dinner tour. We had a great tour guide and the winery was beautiful. We would have enjoyed more than one vineyard, but the one they chose was special. I wish we had started earlier as it was daylight savings time and it got dark early so we could not see enough of the countryside. The dinner was great, and plentiful. We enjoyed the tour very much. I give it an A.
We spent a very good time. It is a valuable experience to drink wine and have dinner with world wide friends. Additionally, every city we visited was impressive and fantastic. Especially, the sunset scene was very very beautiful!
Excellent tour! Beautiful Tuscan countryside! Interesting and picturesque stops. Wines were okay and the meal was very good! The tour guide was entertaining and friendly.
We really enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it. Very informative, and the places we visited were beautiful!
Everything was great, but there was no outside dinner at a Tuscan villa, which I and my friends were really looking forward to. Other than that, we had a wonderful time and will definitely book through Viator.com again!
Our tour guide a small framed girl with long dark hair was so wonderful! The best tour I have ever been on! She gave us so much history and her English was very good!
This was one of our highlights of a 3 week vacation. Our tour guide was well versed in English language and very informative while being entertaining. The winery tour was great as well as the tasting. The wine tasting was not skimped on, and the meal out outstanding. Well worth the money!
I would give it 5 stars. Most enjoyable wine tasting and sightseeing.
Absolutely loved the trip! It was well organised, and the setting was simply beautiful. Delicious wines to be tried - we bought 4 bottles to enjoy for the rest of our holiday! Highly recommended trip, well worth its ticket price.
My daughter and I loved the wine tour, with the exception of the dinner! Which fell short of our expectations for a typical Tuscan meal. The Quercerto castle, visits to Greve and Castellina, and our guide and tour group were all fabulous. Would highly recommend!
My wife and I recommend this trip for anyone who wants a taste of Tuscany. We had a great tour guide, saw beautiful sites, drank delicious wine, and had a great dinner. t well, well worth it!

This was a great way to see Tuscany. Our guide did a great job as well. This one is a must if you have travelled all the way to Florence.
It was great. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and fun. The tour bus was new and very comfortable. The wine tasting was elegant and more than just a sip. The appetizers with the wine were a perfect match. At the end of the tour was a wonderful dinner at an award winning little restaurant. It was definitely worth the day to do this tour.
Wonderful - the wine tasting was superb and the dinner was excellent - our tour guide was fantastic - highly recommend.
Also brilliant. Had a fabulous time. Again our guide is brilliantly good.
Finding the initial meeting place for the trip was difficult; however, that is the only negative. Once we began our ride on a comfortable bus, our tour guide was charming and informative and kept us abreast of everything of interest on the ride. The castle winery was beautiful and the guide there was wonderful. The tasting consisted of cheese, bread, and two glasses of red wine, which were delicious. The third wine was a dessert wine in which we dunked our biscotti as instructed. Then we were taken to Greve and allowed to roam on our own for a while. Adorable town. Then we went to a hilltop in Chianti with a church for picture taking as the sun was setting over the valley. Breathtaking!!!! We went to a restaurant after for a delicious dinner. As we boarded the bus after a long, wonderful day, we were in agreement that this was one of the best highlights of our trip to Italy. Do it, you won't be sorry!!!
Our guide was very pleasant and informative and had a great sense of humor. Everything was well done. She had to deal with some events beyond her control--a couple left a camera at the restaurant, and there was a traffic jam on the way back. She gracefully handled each situation and always looked to make things as comfortable as possible for the tour takers. My pregnant wife needed to sit near the front of the bus; I mentioned it to our guide at the beginning, and when we got on the bus, the first seats were assigned to us. This was well worth it, and I would highly recommend it as a very enjoyable Chianti, Tuscany experience.
Tuscany is so beautiful, and this tour shows you the best spots. The wine tasting was very ample, and dinner was great. Tour guide was a bit PMSy, but the rest of the group made up for it. Definitely worth the cash.
The tour was fabulous. There were 8 of us traveling together, and we shared a great time. The tour guide was very thorough with explanations, and the bus was comfortable. The views were spectacular, and the castle tour was great, although they could have spared a little more wine for tasting; two samples were not enough. The dinner was good; again could have spared a bit more wine and offered purchasing. All in all, a great tour!
This was a beautiful trip with a lovely driver and guide. The stops chosen were perfect. Wine was amazing, and the meal just finished it off nicely. This was the best day we had in Italy. Thank you.
This tour was better than expected. Even with the rain, it was beautiful and romantic. The wine was great! We even found our new favorite red. Dinner was just OK. The best parts were the new friends we made, the friendly and funny tour guide, and the bus driver. This was definitely a highlight of our trip!
Out of all of the tours we went on, we enjoyed this one the most. It was really well done. The pace was perfect, the Tuscany countryside was beautiful, and the castle and wine tasting was a perfect ending.
The vineyard was great - excellent wine and plenty to eat/drink while tasting. Aside from the vineyard, the rest of the trip seemed rushed. We had approximately 30 minutes in each of the towns that we stopped in which allowed for a bathroom break and a quick glass of wine. We would have liked more time in the towns, or to skip one town completely and give extra time in the other. The dinner was average and was served family style, which is always a little awkward when you're at a table with complete strangers. The tour was a great way to see Chianti and to taste some great wine. Plus, you don't have to worry about a designated driver. Worth doing for sure.
