We really enjoyed this trip! Siena is a cool place to visit. The tour guide was nice and had the driver stop at a great location to take photos. The winery tour and dinner including wine tasting were great! The food was good typical Tuscan cuisine and the glasses of wine were abundant.
There were only 6 people on this tour and it was very good. Siena was a gem and the church was fabulous. Make sure you check out the small library as this is nothing short of amazing. You do waste a bit of time purchasing the entry ticket. The trip through Chianti is great and the guide arranged with the driver to stop for us to take some photos. The meal at the winery was good, local and rustic and matched the wines. The short winery tour was informative with the wine maker being a wonderful talker of his local product. Our guide, Antonio, was excellent. He had extensive knowledge and kept us informed throughout the trip.
Great trip to take vineyard tour and dinner outstanding. guide as well as vineyard owner first rate.
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!
This was a great tour a perfect mix of guided and free time. However I think some of the magic was lost due to the time of day. I think in winter it needs to start earlier as it and #39;s totally dark by the time you leave Siena so you miss the views on the drive to the winery. Otherwise a spectacular day
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.
With limited time to see the sights outside Florence, but wanting to get a taste of Siena and Wine country this was a great way to do it. You are basically driven to Siena and have time to explore and relax there, followed by a trip to a local winery. The dinner and wine tasting was great and the owners were very welcoming. Due to the time of year we were there October it was unfortunately dark for a good portion of the drive and once we arrived so we didn't get a chance to see the beautiful Tuscon scenery.
Good enjoyable tour with a relaxed atmosphere and excellent guide and driver. Meal at winery was barely up to standard
Wonderful! Had a very informative guide and the small winery was lovely. Fantastic meal and fun group of other travelers. Enjoyed seeing the Chianti region and it was a perfect evening.
We had a very small group, but this tour seemed very impersonal. The views after Siena were gorgeous, and the wine was very good, but the dinner was subpar. This tour is only a must do for the Tuscan countryside views. The staff at the winery were very bubbly and kind. Overall not bad.
Very good value for money! We were taken to Siena which is great to see and then to a remote farmhouse where they produce Chianti wine, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The tour leader was very good with good knowledge of English and the vineyard hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The meal was average but overall I was very satisfied with the whole experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence.
Lovely tour! Ample time in Siena to see the sights and wine and dinner was delicious. Our guide Julio was fabulous and made sure we were all looked after. We enjoyed this tour!
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide Ivan was great. Ida from the winery was superb. I learned so much. I did not give the tour the highest rating as I felt 2.5 hours at Piazza del Campo was too long and we were disappointed there was no wine cellar tour as indicated.
Our group was small (8) and we had an excellent guide named Aldo. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience. Siena is lovely, with so many shops to visit and its beautiful cathedral. Our guide Aldo was extremely knowledgeable about the area and accommodating by giving us time to stop for pictures. The drive up through the Tuscan hills held one beautiful view after another and we actually had a beautiful sunset. Our private dinner at the winery was delicious, as were each of the wines. Well worth the expense!
Luckily we had spent time in Siena a few days previously as the stop in Siena was only 1 1/2 hours not the stated 2 1/2 hours. Love the town areas and 4 blocks off main piazza we had a terrific lunch at good price. Tour guide very prompt and no waiting around so recommend anyone taking this tour to be early at the train station site. Italian/Spanish tour guide very knowledgable and driver great. The vineyards, host, and food were terrific along with international visitors at dinner. Vineyard owner very fluent in English and had terrific sense of humor! He showed us process areas that we have never seen before - unique. Kudos for great tour! Nancy and Curtis, Albuquerque, NM, USA
