Chianti Wine Region Small Group Day Trip from Florence

Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll join your guide and hop aboard your coach. Head first to the Tuscan hill town of Siena, known for its Palio di Siena, a horse race held twice a year in the main square.

Beautiful, breathtaking, countryside!! The growers of the two vineyards we visited were very hospitable. Our guide Giacomo was quite knowledgeable, a gem.

Good bus, Jacamo an excellent driver we saw the countryside and had frequent stops. Not suitable because of timings to take photos but most enjoyable wine tastings. No lunch available at a trattoria but purchased at the first vineyard meat and cheese platter for 15 e each. Very informative tasting at our second stop but unfortunately due to other visitors there was no room for us to sit outside for our tastings which would have been nice. Overall very nice to get out of the city and see the countryside.

Fantastic tour. The scenery was amazing and the wineries and towns we visited were just perfect. The van was very comfortable for the drive and the length of the tour was just right. Our guide Fabrizio (forgive me if I've spelled his name wrong) was the best. He went out of his way to pick up other people on the tour who were late, took us to a few spots that weren't necessarily part of the tour (like stopping on the hill above Florence for pics, etc). One of the people on the tour left her phone behind at a previous stop, and Fabrizio called back, arranged to have someone he knew look for it and then got it back later in the day and was going to deliver it to the hotel of the person who lost it. Top notch service for sure.

Our Small Group Chiati Wine Region Day Trip was outstanding! It was definitely one of the best tours I have ever taken. We had a terrific driver and guide-Tiberio. He was very informative and told us many interesting facts about Tuscany. I especially liked that this tour included a visit to a pottery factory, medieval castle and market town as well as two wineries. The only negative for me was I was expecting lunch to be on our own. Instead it was at the first winery and was a sampling of cheese,salami and prosciutto shared by two persons.
I did not.know that was our lunch and we paid 15euros each for it. Still having said that, it was a fantastic trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Fantastic Tour!! the guide was exceptional and friendly. He didn't rush us, even when we would take some extra time to explore different places that we visited. We felt the stops that we took we are great and very worthwhile. Highly Recommended!!

Our small group tour of 8 was wonderful and thoroughly enjoyed! Our tour guide, Tiberio Fabbri, had a wealth of knowledge about the Italian countryside, history and people, it truly enhanced our experience! We experienced so much more than the 2 wineries; but the highlight was our lunch with wine paring at one of the wineries! A perfect day overall and one of our favorites in the 2 weeks abroad!
