This was the best day of our 10-day trip to Italy. Our guide, Elisa, was great--and the food and wine were delicious. The drive is a mere 30 minutes and is very scenic. The whole tour had a leisurely pace, and yet we had plenty of time left in the day to explore the heart of Florence when it was over.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. The views as we drove through Tuscany were breathtaking. Matteo was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable about wines and how the wineries operated. He made sure we had breaks and time to take photos during our stops at the wineries. The last stop was for lunch which consisted of a wonderful buffet featuring some of the wines we had tasted earlier. Our family not only became more educated on wines, but we enjoyed the fantastic hospitality of the guides and the restaurant. We would highly recommend this tour.
