Great guide and great trip. The itinerary differed from what was advertised, but we enjoyed it just the same.
This was the best tour of our whole trip! Alex, our tour guide was awesome. The wine and food pairings were fabulous. Sergio, our bus driver really could maneuver through the narrow streets of Tuscany. This tour is a must if you are traveling to Florence!
An absolute fantastic day. Our guide. Francesco, was fun and very informative. We loved Chianti and will definitely return.
Franchesco was very knowledgeable about the region and wine. He added a lot to the trip. This was a great day and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is not able to stay in Tuscany but has time to spend on a day trip there. It is a beautiful region.
This tour was done by WalkaboutFlorence and our tour guide was Alex. This was one of the best tours of my trip and Alex was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and share a wealth of information about the history of Chianti, specifics about the wine region, the wine making process. I also did the Tuscany in One Day tour the day before and I would recommend doing both if you as they do not overlap in any way. The restaurant for lunch had great service along with amazing food and wine. They did not skimp on the food or wine. Alex made this a great tour! Thanks Alex!
Great wine, beautiful views, great tour guide very knowledgeable and the lunch was AMAZING! Definitely highly recommended!
Very worthwhile tour. We had an excellent tour guide, Martina, who was extremely knowledgeable, not only about the Tuscan area, but also about winemaking there. We had wonderful wine tastings, delicious sampling of Italian food, a substantial lunch, and great tours of the wineries themselves. Martina shared so much information, on the bus and at each location. A wonderful experience!
This trip was the highlight of our 12 day stay in Italy. We really enjoy the wineries and authentic Italian food, so this was the perfect trip. We met the tour group at the train station in the morning and from there it was completely worry free. The bus driver was excellent and we were able to relax and take in the sites. The first stop was a winery where we witnessed all stages of the wine-making process. We then moved onto a second location, where lunch was served. We ate overlooking the Tuscan hills, the views were breathtaking. The food was excellent too. We then went to the small town of Greve in Chianti. We spent about an hour exploring the town and shops. Then we made our way to the train station. Total time was about 10 hours.
Our tour guide was Alex. He was simply amazing. He was incredibly knowledgeable the entire trip, offered well known information but also interesting stories that I'd never heard of. He was funny and very easy to talk to.
Overall, this trip was amazing. I would recommend to anyone staying in Florence and anyone that likes wine and food!
Excellent tour. We learned and toured some of the most wonderful vineyards in the Tuscan area where Chianti is produced. Our lunch was also a memorable event, with local food and cheese paired with delicious wines. Most of all our tour guide Martina did an superb job. We highly recommend this small group tour arranged through Viator.
Extensive tour through the Chianti region. Alex was excellent, both as a wine and food guide. The tour was long, but I will know Chianti wines for ever!
We highly recommend this tour of Tuscan Hill wineries. Our guide, Alex, was thorough, knowledgeable and engaging. We had a lovely day and made some new friends from all over the world. The group was small and the mini-bus very comfortable. The proprietors were courteous and friendly, never pushing sales but the wine was delicious and many purchases were made. Alex was a wealth of information and encouraged questions.

The guide was fantastic very knowledgeable and enthusiastic! Nice smaller group great time had by all!
Fantastic tour! I highly recommend this especially if Stefan is your guide. We had a great day with Stefan a sommelier who was very knowledgeable about the wines of the region. The tastings were great. We even shipped a case of wine home and it arrived just days after we returned from the trip. The lunch is delicious - but huge! You can definitely skip breakfast because the 3 course lunch served at a lovely restaurant overlooking a Tuscan valley is outstanding. I highly recommend this tour especially if you are looking for a way to escape the crowds of the Florence streets and museums. It is lovely to be out in the country with a small group enjoying good wine, good food, and a beautiful setting. Not one person tried to sell us a selfie stick all day!!
We absolutely LOVED this tour! We had such a great time at each winery, and the lunch at the cute Tuscan Villa was incredible. Our tour guide, Franchesco, was so knowledgable and made the day so special. We ended the day with full bellies and full hearts.
We HIGHLY recommend this tour.
High quality tour. Our guide Alex was great. A small group size of about 20 persons which was great. Allowed us to mingle with other travellers. Wineries selected were very and good and the lunch provided at a beautiful restaurant was a lavish spread and superb!
Not to mention that the wines that we tasted through the day were excellent.
Great value for money!
The trip was fantastic! Absolutely stunning and Alex was a terrific guide with Francesco driving and navigating the winding road through the country side and getting us back on time. The lunch was superb! Highly recommend this trip, much better than hiring a car as you can just sit back, relax, enjoy the wine and scenery.
This tour was amazing. There were 4 of us on this tour and we all loved it!!! Our tour guide, Stephano, was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. He made us feel very welcomed and never made us feel we were in a rush. We dearly loved him and if we come back to Flornce we would do this tour again!!! It was so worth the money. Thanks Stephano and Viator.
absolutely brilliant,all we expected and more.The guide was excellent as was the wine and food.Would recommend to anyone visiting Tuscany. Peter and Barbara-London
Highlight of our trip to Rome and Florence. The Tuscany countryside is beautiful. The two wineries were quaint with very good wines. The lunch is quintessential Tuscan. The tour guide was funny and very knowledgeable about the area and wine. Magnificent!
Great tour and would highly recommend. Our tour guide Martina was fantastic, explained a lot during the drive as well as the winery tours.
What a fantastic tour! I had visited Florence several times, so this trip I was looking to get out of the city. I was a bit nervous about the long day 9 hour tour, but the day flew by! Martina was a wonderful guide. Very informative and interesting she was a delight. The lunch was absolutely amazing, from the food to the views, it was a highly memorable experience. Every place we visited was very nice. I would highly recommend this tour and Martina and would do it again.
