One of the best tours we've ever taken. Our guide Valeria was great fun and very knowledgeable. The wineries were very good. The lunch was awesome, overlooking a beautiful valley and so ample we could barely finish our third course.
Valeria Blanco did a great job. She was knowledgeable and easy to listen to.
The driver, Fabio?, did a great job too. Handling that big vehicle on those demanding roads required skill and attention.
One of the highlights of our trip this winter. Martina was amazing. The wineries were amazing and lunch was incredible as well...All around one of the best tour experiences I have ever been on. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Our experience was a wonderful one! The tour guide was very knowledgeable about wine and our lunch at the Tuscan farmhouse was fabulous! The food could not have been better! All in all, if you are in the Tuscan region, do not miss this tour!
Great tour. Visited several wineries and had picturesque lunch in Tuscany. Guide was very knowledgeable. Clearly one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic tour with wonderful food and drinks!!! Views were fantastic - covering a lot of ground. Totally worth the time and ! Martina, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and generous with her time and attention. She is native to Florence and well versed in it's culture and history. She has a great personality - friendly and funny. You'll have a great time on any of her tours!
This tour was the highlight of our trip!
The tour was very organized from the start. It was very easy to find the tour guide at the meeting point near the taxi stands at the train station as she was holding a sign.
The tour guide was very good. She kept things interesting by talking through the long driving portions of the tour. She gave a lot of background on the area, wine and culture.
Both wine estates were beautiful and included tastings of 3 different Chianti wines Classico, Riserva and Gran Selezione as well as a tour of the grounds and explanations of both the wine fermenting process and even how olive oil is made. The best part of the tour in my opinion was the lunch at a beautiful countryside restaurant where we tried 3 more glasses of Chianti and had by far the best meal we had in Italy! The place couldn't have been more beautiful. The last major destination during the tour was in Greve which was a cute town where we had time to do some shopping, which allowed for us to pick up some souvenirs from a real Tuscan Country store.
Overall the trip was great. We really had just enough time in each location without rushing us around or even lingering too long. I'd easily do another trip through this local tour operator!
This was a truly amazing tour and we highly recommend! Martina was fabulous - very personable and knowledgeable about the region, as well as about the wine and food. Richardo was a great driver and got us to all of our destinations safely. The places we visited were really great and the food and wine were of a very high standard.
Our super friendly guide Martina makes our trip delightful and comfortable. She brings us the history, the culture, and great countryside view food of Chianti.
We had a great time!
The tour was excellent and the tour guide and driver were very polite, knowledge. I would recommend
this tour to any of my friends or family.
I would highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide Martina was very knowledgeable and very personable. I believe Martina's personality, knowledge and kindness made this tour a 5 star tour. Spending the day in the Italian countryside of Chianti was one of my husband and I's most enjoyable days on our Italian escape! it was sooo nice to get out of the city and experience the breathtaking views and amazing food, wine and olive oil. I was concerned about the length of the tour, I wasn't sure about spending a full day on a tour bus and now I would book it again in a heartbeat! Martina takes you to amazing wineries, restaurant and an awesome Tuscan village, I wish I would have had MORE time on the tour! I can not say enough positive things about Martina and the tour, this is definitively worth the time and money.
I booked this trip with high expectations and I was not disappointed. We started off meeting at Santa Maria Novella train station and our guide Martina was holding a card which made it really easy to identify her. The group was small, about 5 of us that day. Throughout the journey, Martina was very interactive and friendly, and really knowledgeable not just about the wines, but also the whole Chianti region. Our driver Ricardo was pretty skilled in navigating some of the bumpy roads. We had a total of 9 different wines, 3 in each of the 2 vineyards and another 3 during our lunch. Food was aplenty from beginning to the end, and everything was so delicious! The lunch deserve special mention, you have to be there to experience it, and the view was just splendid. There was no pressure at all to buy the wines or olive oil, and we were also given plenty of time to explore each area we stopped at. This was without any doubt the best part of our trip and I highly recommend anyone to book this tour!
Martina was the perfect hostess for this tour. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area as well as wine, olive oil, and cheese that made this a really great experience. You dont have to like wine to take this tour, it has a bit of everything including the breathtaking views of the Tuscany countryside, wonderful food, and the villas we visited were stunning. It was a memorable experience for my family and I.Thank you.
I was looking for a wine tour to do with my parents when they came to Florence for the day and let me tell you, we were not disappointed at all! We had a fantastic experience with the local tour operator. Martina was our tour guide and she was so kind, funny, and knowledgable about the Tuscan region. We had a delicious 3 course meal at a restaurant that had a brilliant view overlooking the rolling hills of Tuscany. The meal was awesome. All of the wines selected for tasting were great. I have been on 3 wines tours during the four months I have been in Florence and this was hands down the best. You get what you pay for. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
This was a great tour and one that I would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing day while in the Florence or Tuscany area. Martina was very knowledgeable, engaging and a joy to spend the day with. Our bus driver was fantastic as well. I'm not sure how you navigate some of those roads, but he was a pro! Again, I highly recommend this tour for a great experience of the region.
The guide was very knowledgeable. Her English was easy to understand. She knew how to keep us engaged and kept things interesting. This all dispite the weather being cold any rainy. The wine were well chosen as was the various accompanying food.
Martina was an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable.
Highly recommend! Our guide Martina was highly engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining. The scenery is beautiful, and you will wish you had more time to spend at each stop. We learned so much about olive oil, wine tasting and had excellent lunch with beautiful view. All capped off by sunset views at the final winery. We fall in love with Tuscany!
Valerie was an awesome guide on this wonderful day of exploring the Tuscany valley. We enjoyed learning about the wine, tasting the wine, pairing wine with cheese and visiting the vineyards. Lunch was fantastic and the scenery throughout the day was breathtaking. Highly recommend this activity to anyone interested in experiencing a Taste of Chianti!
This tour was amazing. The wine, food and scenery were all that we had hoped for. Our guide was fantastic. Restaurant for lunch included an amazing picturesque Tuscan countryside view, excellent wine and homemade food. The tour lives up to its name. Highly recommended for experiencing Tuscany!
This was one of the most memorable, beautiful and fun days spent in all of Italy. We had a really wonderful, relaxing and delicious experience. This tour is highly recommended. Beware--it will make you fall in love with Tuscany and you will contemplate staying behind forever.
This tour was fantastic. You will learn a lot about wine, the grapes used, and you will be able to sample a several excellent wines. The scenery driving to each winery is beautiful. I have had the good fortune to have Stefano as a tour guide several times over the years. He is very knowledgeable, attentive, informative and entertaining. Highly recommended !
