This was the highlight of my trip in Italy! And we booked very last minute - the night before. None of the other tours had any spots but we managed to get 2 spots with these guys, and it turned out to be fantastic! They didn't hold back with the wine either, and the lunch in the Tuscan countryside was the perfect end to my trip. I would highly recommend this tour if you want some beginner's knowledge about wine, and basically want to spend a lovely morning and afternoon away from the city, sipping on delicious wines and eating local food.

Absolutely amazing tour! Matteo our guide was very knowledgeable and the winerys we went to were absolutely lovely - I liked that they weren't the same style as one was ultra modern and another was older and part of a castle where the outlook took my breath away!

We took this tour the first week in July. It was fabulous. The day sped by far too quickly and I wasn't ready to say goodbye to our tour guide and new friends we met. The scenery was gorgeous, it was a picture perfect cloudless sky and the olive groves/vines dotted the landscape. It was wonderfully mesmerizing and I shall not forget the images imprinted in my mind and heart. The wine tasting was a highlight of course and the lunch that was included was tasty and plentiful. I couldn't eat dinner that night, I was still quite stuffed Hope you give this tour a try, you won't be sorry.

Great tour!I read almost every review and all I wanted to know was how much wine they served. No one put that in their reviews so I was bummed because I wanted lots of wine! Well, we picked the tour with LOTS of wine!!!! In total, I was served 12 glasses of wine and 2 dessert wines. Please know that they are not pouring full glasses! A little less than half a glass but like I said, there were 12 of those! Dessert wines are always served small We left pretty tipsy! And the lunch that was served was sooooooo good! The countryside was amazing! Absolutely beautful place to be drinking yummo wine! And our tour guide, Matteo, was great! Knew soooo much about all the wines and really made it fun! So worth it!

We loved our day of wine tasting in the Chianti region. Matteo was our tour guide - he was friendly and knowledgeable. The vineyards we visited were beautiful. It was especially cool going into the cellars, and learning about the different kinds of Chianti. We had a fantastic lunch and were able to taste several local wines, oil, and balsamic vinegar. We highly recommend this tour. Grazie, Matteo!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This tour was wonderful and with six people you had plenty of room and a lot of comfort. You visit the country side which is Tuscany is incredibly beautiful. We ended up sampling 12 different wines and got to eat some great food. The tour guide was really interested in talking about Tuscany and being a sommelier, teaching us about the wines of the three wineries that we visited. Beautiful day, we highly recommend it!
