This trip was AMAZING! My boyfriend and I were so sad for it to end! The ride was gorgeous, the tour interesting (and not too long, if you know what I mean), and the people friendly and helpful. They even dropped us back off in Florence early enough for us to still do an eveing in the city.

The best day of our trip!!!! Julia our riding guide was great!!! I reinjured my knee getting on the horse, during the ride she kept checking to make sure I was okay. We were in a group of four, the other two riders had never riden. Julia made sure they were comfortable and helped them when needed. She was very animated when talking about her love of the Tuscan countryside and Italian food.
The ride was beautiful!!! Probably the most beautiful I have been on.
The winery and olive oil processing tour was great!! Loved hearing about the history.
Lunch was delicious. The olive oil and wine tastings were great!! I ended up buying a couple bottles.
Our drives to and from the ride were great too. Our driver pointed out many sights. He too had a great love for the area. On the way back we stopped for gelato and scenic views.
Overall the best day of our two week European vacation!!!!!

We went in a small group mof just 5 and got to know each other very well...The horse ride was fantastic. Almost 2 hours long. Lunch in the winery was also great...Our wonderful guide, Mateo, then took us up close to the vineyrads and to machiavelli's Tuscan estate. It was a wonderful day!

The horse riding was a highlight of our two weeks in Italy. It far exceeded every expectation. Everything from the ride to and from Florence to the lunch to gelato on the way back to Florence was perfect. Julia, our wrangler was a pleasure and Mateo, our driver, was very professional, fun and informative. I cannot say enough good things!

It was our best day in Italy! A beautiful, meandering horseback ride through grape vinyards, a fabulous lunch, free wine tastings, and stops for gelato and scenic overlooks. They took great care of us and I would recommend this trip to anybody who wants a memorable experience

This trip was unbelievable! It would have been very relaxing if we didn't have to stress about getting back on our cruise ship. The trip was beautiful, however, the people who were supposed to get us to the Chianti region were an hour late, therefore, we were estimated to come back an hour late... The region is about 45 minutes away from Florence (driving), which makes it about 2 hours away from the cruise port. We almost missed our ship. The Italian people are very laid back and don't care too much about the time and schedules. They were very nice though, they took us earlier to the closest place where we could take a cab to the train station to go back to Livorno (port city). The region and horses and our two guides were excellent. The food was great and winery was very nice as well. Even though we had a very stressful time, for those who are not on a strict schedule, we would highly recommend this day trip. It was excellent.

Plain and simple; amazing! The tour was jam packed with so many stops and entertainment I started to wonder how long it could go on. Jacopo was a great guide and so much fun. Would do this tour again in an instant!
