What You Can Expect
Arrive in Siena and enjoy 2.5 hours to explore independently, checking out the central Piazza del Campo or the Duomo, a stunning Gothic cathedral with interior frescoes and alternating stripes of white and black marble.
After watching the sunset, hop back in your coach and head to the region of Chianti, made famous by its ruby-red wine. There, you’ll visit one of the area’s prominent wine estates, set amidst a Tuscan farm. Take a guided tour of the cellars and learn about the production and aging process that gives the Chianti blends a world-class flavor.
Then settle into a table in the main farmhouse or, weather permitting, outdoors for a 4-course meal (sample menu can be found below). Pair your dinner with up to four glasses of the estate’s wine, learning about the characteristics of each from your guide as you sip.
After your evening of wining, dining and sightseeing concludes, you will be returned to central Florence in your coach.

I recommend this tour for red wine lovers. The Tour guide was extremely sweet and knowledgeable on our journey to Siena . The vineyard dinner was a highlight of the trip.
Fantastic scenery, Siena is wonderful and the vineyard and meal were superb. It is a wine tasting meal and not a wine drinking trip so do not expect large glasses of wine, but the meal and staff cannot be faulted.
Food was delicious as was the wine, a fantastic trip but be careful, some of the roads are a little tight and bumpy so if easily car / bus sick then be prepared.
excellent value. Had 1hr 45 min in Sienna, just long enough to see the Duomo and have a coffee in fhe square. The wine tour was fun anx informative. The dinner was excellwnt as was the wine. A fun afternoon/evening. Excellent value.
This was a wonderful experience, Antonio our guide, was very helpful and knowledgeable. The wine tasting and food was very good, I was able to buy and ship back some wine very simply.
We had a really great time on our tour. Our guide was amazing. She spoke several languages which was very impressive, but you could tell that she was clearly passionate about the area. The dinner was beautiful and so was the scenery. We'd definitely recommend this tour - you won't regret it!
An excellent guide and tour.Because our group was fifty people it was too large to move swiftly and it meant along time serving dinner. There was no dessert, only biscotti which was a disappointment considering the cost.We arrived back in Florence after eleven PM.The driver of the bus was excellent in tight roads on the way to Chianti Country and exiting the vineyard.A very pleasant evening but the size of the group was too many.
AMAZING!!! The trip to the farm was the highlight of our trip to Florence--Carlo's passion was palatable and shined through in his food and wine. This trip is well worth the cost and I highly, highly recommend it!
We would definitely recommend this tour. It was fantastic and organised very well. Big thanks for our tour guides they were fantastic, driver was lovely too.
We loved the wine and Sienna. The only thing that was missing is they said desert would be tiramisu, but we only got a shot of really strong clear grape drink and some plain biscuits. Other than that A+++

Awesome tour! Really nice guide and the dinner at the vineyard was just soooo delicious!
Loved Siena,it was so chilled and relaxed and the church was beautiful. Spending time doing our own thing around the town was great. The winery was nice and meeting fellow Aussie who shared friends we knew was great.
Be warned though I booked this expecting to get lovely sunset Photo's but we did not, sunset was lovely as we drove to our winery location, but the winery was located down the wrong side of a hill and was not really photogenic. There where a few of us on the tour who had booked with the thought that we where going to get beautiful sunset photo's. The guide did respond to a complaint and some of us where taken to a vantage point to get dusk photo's the sun had set over the beautiful Chianti hills. For me this saved the tour as the disappointment was huge. The food was lovely and the evening eating getting to know fellow travellers was very nice.
The word sunset in my opinion needs to be taken out of the title as the expectation is set right there, if I was booking something like an Afternoon in Siena with dinner in a Chianti winery, my experience would not have been tainted.
