This was a very enjoyable tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. the trip to the first winery included a stop along the road to see actual vineyard. Was not rushed at any of stops. Both wineries that we did tastings at were very very nice. The lunch included in the last stop was also the wine tasting which i thought was nice Food was authentic and delicious Wish it had even been longer. Highly recommend

Really enjoyed this day. Our tour guide Christian was very knowledgeable and interesting. Since we were all Americans, he made a quick stop along the way to show us the U.S. Memorial cemetary dedicated to those who died during World War II it was a mini Arlington. Enjoyed the 2 wineries , one was an old style , the other newer. Lunch was good

We had a terrific day, with a friendly and knowledgable guide, lovely wines, beautiful scenery, delicious lunch and the company of the other travellers was fantastic.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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!
