This tour was absolutely fantastic. My wife and I booked this tour within 24 hours of the start of the tour. It ended up just being us and another couple around our age (about 30 years old). The two wineries we went to were very quaint and not very busy. There was a lot of history at each location and the views from each of the wineries across Tuscany was beautiful. It seriously felt like a we had these places to ourselves with our tour guide who knew a lot about each of the wineries, different types of wines, and wine-making in particular. Each winery had a very nice tasting spread for us: a lot of wine, olive oil, honey, cheeses, meats, breads. One of the wineries had a full meal (pasta and dessert, after the very generous appetizer spread) and they let us sample local grappa as well. The only downside of the trip was the quality of transportation, as it was very hot in Italy that time of year. We were promised air conditioned transportation, and the van was air conditioned, but only on the driver, not on the passengers. Luckily the furthest we had to drive was about 30 minutes at any one time. Great trip overall.
This was excellent. The young men leading the tour really knew their stuff and made the whole tour very fun and informative.
This was a great tour and terrific addition to our Italy vacation. I would highly recommend this tour to others. Our guide, Matteo, was very knowledgeable and provided a well paced tour with great information. What a way to spend the day!!! The two wineries were beautiful and the Tuscan lunch was delicious.
Best event of our trip...we had an awesome time and I would recommend this trip to anyone.
This tour was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide Gian Luca made the trip even more perfect. He was super knowledgable and very friendly. We loved the first winery where he took the time to show us the garden and took as many pictures of us as we wanted. The wine at the first winery was so good we bought some and had it shipped home. At the second winery we enjoyed a very fresh meal of wine, cheese, bread, honey and pasta. On the way back, Gian Luca stopped at a beautiful point to take more pictures of us in front of the vineyards. At the end of the trip he took us to piazza Michaelangelo and let us enjoy the sunset while he waited, and then drove us right to our hotel. Absolutely the perfect trip!
This was one of our favorite tours! The guide was fantastic - highly encourage anyone interested in sampling the local wine to check this out!
We loved this tour. The wineries were beautiful and the tour guides were fabulous. We loved the food and all the little towns we drive through on the way. We would definitely recommend this tour to our friends. A must do!
We really enjoyed this tour of the chianti wine region of Tuscany. In fact, we all thought it was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Our tour guides were very knowledgable young men and both were delightful and fun. We really did learn a lot about the process of wine making. The tour included the tasting of 6 different wines and a delicious lunch. Not to mention the beautiful scenery. I would definitely recommend it!!
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour! As a matter of fact it was one of the highlights of our honeymoon! I highly recommend to anyone visiting Firenze!
Easily the highlight of our time in Italy. No one should leave Italy without doing this tour, and everyone should request Gianluca. He spent a lot of time getting to know us and answered all of our questions on not only wine but Italian culture and people. He took us on some unplanned side trips which were a pleasant surprise! On top of that, the wine was good, the food was plenty, and the ride was safe and comfortable. I would recommend this to everyone!
This was such a amazing tour. We had a great small group, toured two amazing wineries and had such great wine and food. I would highly recommend this tour. It was definitely a highlight of our trip!
Great trip. Excellent guide, chose good wine and wineries. We've done many tours and know a fair bit about wine but still learned things. Exceeded our expectations
We would take this tour over and over again. The scenery, the food, and the tour were all amazing. This is a must see in Tuscany....don't miss it. You will not be disappointed it is a well spent day and you will learn a lot about wine, see the beautiful Tuscan countryside, see a Medieval little village, and have some great food. It was a lot of fun. We met people from Australia, and all over the US and Canada. We had amazing weather and could not have enjoyed it more. thanks!
Amazing. Do this. I don't even like wine but this was awesome. Amazing and knowledgable guide. Do it!
We visited two wineries. The countryside was beautiful. The tour guide was fun and informative. The group was small and the pace was perfect. The lunch and the wine were a wonderful experience.
Excellent tour. The guides were very knowlegeable and informative and looked after the group in a freindly and warm fashion. Both wineries were excelent as was the lunch. Would definitely go on this tour again
Amazing experience! Beautiful countryside! Awesome Vineyards! Best Guide/Wine Sommelier - Matteo! Very very romantic wine tasting lunch :D
Highly recommended for a honeymoon trip :D
Great tour and great people in the small group. We toured 2 wineries with a traditional Tuscan lunch (lots of breads, cheese, meats, pasta) at the end of the first winery. Lunch included a tasting of several wines, but our tour guides kept reminding us to not drink them all to save room for the next place. We then went to a 2nd winery place and learned more about the wines and about olive oils. The tasting there included 3 wines and 3 cheeses. We learned a lot about wines from the region and had plenty of time to interact with others in the group.
My husband and I loved this tour! We happened to be the only persons on the tour, so we had the tour guides all to ourselves. Our primary guide, Matteo, was training a colleague, Gianluca, on how to give the tour. Both of them were funny, polite, knowledgeable about history and wine – just overall really good people to take this trip with. I unfortunately wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t take advantage of the delicious wine and food, though I tasted it and could appreciate the high quality of everything they put out for us. My husband, however, thoroughly enjoyed the meats, cheeses, olive oils, etc., as well as the various wines served. The vineyards are gorgeous and the people there (including the owner at the first vineyard!) were incredibly gracious.
But, really, I can’t overstate how lovely Matteo was in his role as driver and sommelier. And easy on the eyes too! :-)
Definitely recommended for couples and groups of friends. I think it'd even be fun as a party of one. :-)
It was a great addition to my time in Florence. It was highly informative, entertaining and delicious. I would recommend this to everyone, regardless of their experience and knowledge of wine and wine making.
Our guide , Mateo was adorable . He was on time, and you could just hear in his voice that he was proud to show off his Italy. The wine was delicious and the food was very tasty and filling. The whole experience was delightful and I can"t wait to go again.
Amazing!!! We loved every minute of it and our guide Matteo was great as well!!! We will definitely recommend this tour to everyone traveling to Florence! Thank y'all so much! It was the highlight of our 2 week Europe trip!
