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.
We truly enjoyed our wine country tour. We had booked a full day, but we agreed to take the half-day when they didn't get a full class. The half-day tour was informative, the scenery was awesome, and the winery was impressive.
The drivers were wonderful and our lunch at the winery was excellent. Highly recommend this trip if you want to see beautiful countryside and see firsthand how wine is made. The winetasting isn't bad, either!
This was the best tour we took during our three week European vacation. We were there two days before the harvest of the grapes. The vines were loaded with color. The guide was wonderful. The countryside was beautiful. The ceramics tour was fascinating. The lunch setting was so romantic - sitting under a canopy of vines while overlooking the vineyards. We have been to many wine tours and tastings and this one was the best. The last tour was so personal we ended up buying 12 bottles of wine. Thank you for a day in the country we will never forget!
Fun trip with beautiful scenery, our guide was enthusiastic, informative and fun. The wineries we visited were nice, great wine and the stop at the pottery shop was informative. Our lunch spot was gorgeous and had excellent food and service. A fun day all around.
One of my favorite tours of all time! It was relaxed, yet packed full with friendly, helpful people and amazing views!
The guide was extremely accommodating and personable. The van was clean, modern and very comfortable. We both loved the stops that we made at the markets, the terra-cotta factory, and the winery. The day went by so quickly.
I woke and was not sure what time my tour was starting because of a cycling tour, I got there on time.
I driver was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I had such great company and conversation. The drive was beautiful, we drank great wine all the way, had a super lunch a little expensive but delicious.
The tour at each wine estate was interesting and we had a great time at both. A must do for anyone going to Tuscany and a day to spare
We had a wonderful day seeing the castle, palaces with wineries and our sop in the village. My only complaint was how lunch was handled. There was some misunderstanding whether lunch was included in the price and this misunderstanding was further supported when the guide suggested that we have lunch at one of the wineries. We did enjoy a lovely lunch and were quickly brought back to reality when, after dessert, we were told that lunch was an additional 25 euros (some thought it was included in the excursion cost).
This could have been handled differently. At the start of the excursion, the guide should have reviewed what was included and not included in the day and given the group an option of stopping along the way for lunch at a restaurant or going to the winery for lunch for a set cost and letting us know the cost in advance. He could easily have then called the winery on his cell phone with our group decision and adjusted the day's itinerary accordingly.
That was the only negative for the day and unfortunately it left many feeling duped.
Great situation within easy walk of all highlights of Florence. Yet quiet. The small lift was a problem but they are in course of renewing it.
Lovely day with only one other couple and our guide. Beautiful scenery and good wines to taste. Strongly recommend.
I enjoyed this tour and Stefano knew his stuff about the region and was a lot of fun. Even though this tour was pricey, I think we pretty much got our moneys worth. That having been said, I do feel we were tricked into having to buy lunch at the place however lovely that he chose, and for what we got, it was over priced. If we were going to have such a minimal meal, it should have been included in the rather expensive fee.
Had a great time in spite of the rain, Stefano was an excellent guide. We tried a lot of good Chiantis!
My recent holiday to Italy was more like a flying visit, trying to visit as many places as possible in a very short space of time. I have been before to this area but this was a different tour. Good guide, small group, good day out. I certainly recommended it!
