This was a fun and beautiful trip into wine country. Riding horses through the vineyards was very picturesque and our guide, Serena, was very knowledgeable about wines and the region.
Excellent all around - our driver / assistant was a lovely, personable young woman. The ride itself was great - all that gorgeous Tuscan countryside. The dinner was great. Only complaint - they skimped on the wine.

This tour was absolutely the best! We were a small group, guided by the best tour guide we've ever had, Eliseo. The horse riding in Chianti was a unique way to see the beauty of the countryside. We then went to a small, family owned winery, followed by a great lunch with the most beautiful scenery ever! We did this tour on our last day in Italy and it was such a wonderful way to end a great trip. I would give this tour and this tour guide more than five stars, if that were possible!
Tour guide was awesome and the activities were so much fun! Probably one of my favorite days in Italy. Definitely recommend this tour!
What an amazing day, the staff were excellent in particular Christian our driver who was attentive and a great host.
If you do go on this tour try to go on a Saturday. Then you get to visit Misha's farm. I really think that the tour operator should have a new tour an afternoon with Misha. I know that I would sign up in an instant!
great tour good horses, nice guide and great lunch good value for money

Detox from the crowds and hustle and bustle. If you have ridden horses in Mexico, this will stun you with the difference. The horses are beautiful and clean. They know where to go and what to do. Just relax and enjoy the scenery. Olive trees and vineyards make for a postcard ride. Enjoy the ride. Not for children. Great winery tour and lunch. DO this last on your Florence trip as a reward to yourselves. Oh and remember that Max the dog is really in charge.
We had the most amazing time! Our guide Francesco was excellent - so knowledgeable and happy to answer questions and help. We virtually had a private tour because there was only the two of us. We would use this tour company again if we were in Florence.
By far one of the highlights of my trip to Italy. This was a great experience and lots of fun.
This was an amazing experience. There was a little bit of delay right at the beginning but I guess that was also because of the group. The horse riding was a very lovely experience and it was enjoyable by the whole group. The wine tasting was also good but we would have liked a few more varieties to try out. The dinner was very good but maybe a few more varieties would be better appreciated.
This was a great trip.our guide,Franchesco, spoke great English and was very knowledgeable about the region. I am glad we sat in the front seat because the van was not equipped with a microphone or speakers and the people in the back seat had a harder time hearing what he was saying.
the tour was very enjoyable. We had an excellent guide, the horseback riding was fun, the winery tasting was good and the lunch was delicious.
our guide was fantastic. Debbie her name was. informative and fun. our horses were great and well behaved. the dinner at the winery was excellent.and our guide was very knowledgeable, I forgot his name but he was funny and friendly. the whole day was well woth it. I would've like a bit more time for dinner so we could've had time to digest and enjoy a little more relaxation before we went back, but it was great none the less.
Loved every second of this tour, just do it!! This was the highlight of our trip to Florence, in fact it was the highlight of our trip to 9 different countries!!
this trip was cancelled due to the weather but it was arranged for another day and was pleased it was as it was a great day out.
Do it!! We had a great time. My daughter said It was a perfect day. So much fun, very professionally run, the horses were beautiful, the food during the lunch was fabulous, the farmhouse beautiful, the people were gracious and lovely and lastly our tour guide Eduardo was so funny and sweet. Just fantastic. We would do it again and have been telling everyone we know about it. The only thing I wish was that we had a wine tasting available if we wanted it at the Ruffino vineyard. But that is really stretching to find something not perfect about this tour or our day!
This tour was great! it was a nice combination of various things horse back riding, wine tasting and lunch. I chose to do this rather than a fully dedicated wine tour and am happy I did!!
The trail ride on horseback was very enjoyable. Helmets are provided and the whole ride is done at a walk but you are there for the scenery so this is fine.
Our guide Sephora was an excellent and funny person! : My horse Diabolo awesome, the view, the place and the visit to Ruffino was excellent! :
I don't know where to begin, there simply aren't enough characters to express how absolutely amazing this trip was, I would definitely recommend ! I got so much more than I was expecting. I want to say a special thanks to the instructors, they were extremely friendly.
This booking was a lot of fun. The driver, people at the stables and the winery were all very nice and outgoing.
The lunch was excellent!
So much more than I expected! I have been to Florence many times and wanted to get out in the hills of Tuscany for a bit. We started with a charming drive to a lovely winery where we were given a tour (no tasting yet) and after a bit of a wait on the estate grounds, were transported to horseback riding. I had thought this would be the most interesting aspect of the tour, and it was really nice and diverse, but really, the last part was the best. After riding, we were again transported through the lovely winding roads to a rustic location which had more wine cellars. We then started the wine tasting. Since I booked the afternoon riding, I can't say what lunch is like, but I can tell you about the dinner. It was AWESOME! We were seated at long tables in this lovely sophisticated rustic cellar/wine tasting /trattoria sort of room. Boards of salami, prosciutto, cheese were on the tables. To the side was a long table set up buffet style where we could load our plates with lovely veggies, pasta and other items. I was so pleased, I can't tell you. The staff and our tour guide Steven were more than wonderful. I would have done this again the next day if I only had been able. Thanks for offering this tour and we all enjoyed it so much!
I chose this tour because it seemed different, it went way beyond expectations. Jean Luca and the other guides were fabulous, the wine tasting short but great, the horse ride was lovely thru the olive groves, the girls were darling and I was surprised at finishing with such a great dinner, grazie!!
