Beautiful, breathtaking, countryside!! The growers of the two vineyards we visited were very hospitable. Our guide Giacomo was quite knowledgeable, a gem.
Great tour, wonderful friendly guide. Highly recommended day trip from Florence
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 guide was so knowledgeable and helpful. We had a wonderful day learning about the Chianti region. What a great experience.
Great guide with a passion and lots of energy. Winery was reasonable and nice selection of wine. Couple of stops for pictures. Well worth the money.
Excellent. Loved the terra cotta factory. Nice variety. Excellent tour guide(Lorenzo)
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!
Alexander was our tour guide for this Chianti Wine tour. We visited Medieval towns in Tuscany. Later we had lunch at a winery where we sample wines long with our meal that was outstanding. Very enjoyable with a total of six people. While we ate, Alexander played classical music on the piano for us. After this wonderful lunch we headed to another winery where we again sample wine but also had the pleasure of sampling the best balsamic vinegar that I have ever tasted. Between the beautiful scenery, the great tasting wines, and the company, this is a tour that is worth taking.
What a great day in traveling through the countryside of Tuscany and the Chianti wine region! This was a very small group tour. Our Guide and driver Mauro was absolutely the best! Lunch at Monterinaldi Winery along with the tour of the grounds and their facility was a highlight. The wine as very good. Lunch- Completely gourmet and homemade. Again, I can't give enough accolades to the Tour company and our Host/Driver for the day Mauro! They are excellent.
We had such a great time on our tour. Our guide Luca was very knowledgeable about the region, the wines and the olive trees. The 2 wineries we stopped at were great. I would highly recommend this trip.
HIghly Highly recommended. Don't miss this wonderful tour. The driver/guide was so knowledgeable in the area of wines, olive oils, local areas and customs. Worth every penny. The trip lasted all day but there was so much wonderful countryside to see.
certainly one of he best days i Florence. Johnathan took great care of us and offerred terrific info throughout. We really enjoyed the fine family style lunch and wine tasting offered at one of the wine estates. A truely excellent meal with exellent value. Fun and well paced day out of the city to see this beautiful countryside
It turned out only 4 guests and one fantastic guide, Claudio. We had the BEST time, gorgeous views, fantastic wine, wonderful people, winding roads, and delicious lunch and desserts. Thank you!
Claudio was very knowledgeable about the area, having lived there for quite a long time. Since we were the only group in the van, he customized our trip to show us more of what we wanted to see. He was also very personable and had a lot to say to make our trip very memorable.
Lucca was great! I'm glad we got to see the countryside and learn a little about wine too. I definitely recommend

This is a most underrated tour--deserves 6 stars! I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was. Our guide Tiberio is fantastic!! Charming, gracious, knowledgeable, fun - a huge asset to the tour and made our day our BEST day in Italy. And the host at Monterinaldi the same - fabulous! We enjoyed some of the best food we had in Italy along with wonderful wines for lunch. Scenery is breathtaking, but the experiences throughout the day made it a day you WISH for when traveling to Italy. Do yourself a favor and sign up for this trip!!
This was our second tour out of three with Viator while in Italy. I would recommend any tour that they arrange. Our guide Luca was amazing. We were like herding cats when he stopped to let us explore and always so accommodating. His goal was to assure that our small group had the best experience possible, not getting us back on a schedule. My husband and I were also very fortunate to take this trip with five other folks from a wonderful family. The countryside is gorgeous and Luca made certain he let us have frequent stops for photos. He was amazingly knowledgeable and could answer any of our questions. Thank you Luca for a wonderful experience
The smaller group tour was just what the doctor orderded. Loved it and Jonathan was great!
Fabulous day in Chianti country. We had a small group of 8 people who were enthralled by the knowledge and information imparted by our wonderful guide...Lucca. Thank You for a GREAT trip.
An outstanding, worthwhile, day trip. Our guide, Tiberio was amazing. He was personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. The Chianti countryside, small towns and the restaurant we visited were absolutely wonderful. My wife and I HIGHLY recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed.
We highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Simone was great fun and very knowledgeable. It was also a good group of people to share our day with. The grape picking had only just finished days before, so the tour of the wineries was very interesting and informative. The region itself is beautiful to tour through and the stops at the historic little towns were memorable. Even under the grey skies (and rain by the end of the day), the tour was well worth doing.
