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!!
We had a really great day. Tour was excellent as were the guides. The family whose farm we rode at were very friendly. This was one of our favourite days while in Italy!
The people at the stables were very helpful and kind. We did not feel rushed, they took their time in showing us around, the horse riding was amazing. Riding through the Tuscany counryside on a horse was by far one of the most memorable parts of our holiday.
Next time we are going to book a full day.
Excellent experience! Very special countryside in fiorentino Chianti! One hour of peaceful riding in vineyards! The tour guide was very helpful and smiling and always caring about our safety!
And the finale, very nice choice of wine- tasting in Chianti!
We definetely recommend it!
This was one of my favorite things I did in ALL of Italy! The tour was a small group and we literally rode horses through a winery and hills of Tuscany. It was ABSOLUTELY fabulous and breathtaking! The wine tour and meal after the riding was delicious too! Highly Recommend!
A most excellent time! The guide driving the van, Martina, was personable and very informative. Then the guide on the horseback riding tour (can;t recall her name but she was fabulous. SHe told us so much about the neighbors and grounds. SHe was very patient with us and the horses. She also snapped all the photos for us with our cameras because I was afraid of falling off, given the steep hills we climbed. It was a lot of fun, even though it was a hot day. Bring water!! ALso, they do not let you take backpacks or purses on the ride. I had to leave my purse with Martina - it had over 250 euros in it and it was all there when I returned. A fabulous lunch and wine tasting is provided, and then we got a special treat as Martina let us stop for gelato because our group was small. IT was a great time - well worth the money!!
By far one of the best trips ever to Florence!! Horses were amazingly beautiful and lazy ;) HA! Wine tour was fantastic and the wine and food we had was to die for! Ended up buying the wine we tasted right there! Highly recommend!!
Unfortunately due to major traffic in the city we came to late on the meeting and missed the tour on horses but thanks to the nice people in charge of the vespa tours that were around and that invited us to join the group instead of the horses , we enjoyed a fabulous day ! Tks to all the team
