Francesco, was a great guide. We enjoyed every aspect of this tour. The wine tasting was excellent, both locations were beautiful. We were 8 people on the bus plus the driver and guide. It was very intimate and we got to meet and get to know some wonderful people. I highly recommend this tour.
Can I give this ten stars? This tour was amazing. The tour guide was exceptionally knowledgable without being intimidating ... and he was fun! Fantastic bus driver who navigated the steep and winding Tuscan hills. The wineries were beautiful and romantic settings. Having lived in northern California, I can say that the Tuscan vineyards are like Napa on steroids! So lush and gorgeous. The wines and there were many we tasted were amazing in flavor and intensity the food was impeccable and the small company was so collegial.This was truly magical.
WOW WOW WOW - what a completely amazing day from start to finish. The vineyards we visited were out of this world, with the most amazing Italian wine I have ever tasted. The cheese and meats were divine. The first vineyard for me was the best, the table set impeccably with beautiful glasses and information regarding the wine. Valeria our tour guide was AMAZING !! She took us through every part of the wine process and made the day fun. The lunch was delicious - Guinea fowl, Rooster etc....it was a hot day of 35 degrees but every part of the day was a new taste and way of tasting the best food that the Chianti region had to offer. I would recommend this tour with 100.
Very good tour. Very knowledgeable guide lots of wine and good food.
United States of ...
My clients said it was one of their best tours of ITALY. thank you
This was a wonderful day, but I want to point out that the description in Viator did not match exactly what we did. We did not go to a cheese place or a butcher for sausage. We did have cheese and sausage with the tastings. Lunch was lovely but I think it should have included dessert. I love the 3 wineries we went to. Our guide was great...full of knowledge.
this was great day out full of interesting facts. wine and food. Val our tour host was excellent and kept the group well informed and together. would recommend to anybody.
Better known as the Walkabout Wine Safari and called that because of the exciting ride in the bus up and down steep and winding dirt track road in the Chianti region. Not for the faint of heart but those who dare will enjoy a mouthwatering array of Chianti Classico wines as well as some Super Tuscan's accompanied by a variety of salami, breads and olive oils. On our trip Stephano narrated our progress with passion and typical tuscan flair..not to be missed.
We really enjoyed the Taste of Chianti tour with Walkabout Florence. Our guide Stefano was a wealth of knowledge and a lot fun!
This was the greatest thing we did while we are in Italy. I would like to give 10 to tour guide Martina and the bus driver. Martina really I mean really loves her job and she is a professional about the history and wine.
I highly recommend everyone who does not mind 10 hours journey and walking standing a lot of hours.
When we were back to Florence after the tour we were exhausted and ate and slept.
This is not good for people who has walking and standing issues.
Again THANK YOU SO MUCH MARTINA.!!!
It was raining as we left Florence, so I didn't hold out high hopes for this tour. Irrespective of the rain, this tour was amazing! Lots of wine 9 tastings, 1 white and 8 reds. Four stops - 3 wine tastings. Beautiful countryside and boutique wineries. Val was very passionate about the wine and gave some great insights. The cheese and meat tastings that accompanied the wine were superb as was lunch. In fact, lunch was one of the best meals we had in Italy - very good quality, no fuss regional cooking and plenty of food.
This tour was exceptional. I highly recommend it.
This was a wonderful tour, food was delicious, wine excellent! Our guide, Valeria, was friendly and knowledgeable. This tour exceeded our expectations and was a great way to spend my birthday: Thanks to Paulo for the ride! We would definitely recommend this tour!
This was a great tour! We were able to sample many wines 9 total on the tour and our tour guide, Valeria, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Lunch included three wine tastings and A LOT of food. The pasta they served was some of the best we had while in Italy. Also, the views were breathtaking. This trip is definitely worth doing if you like wine, food and want to explore the Tuscan countryside!
Our guide was great! Franchesco was really knowledgable and easy to listen too. It was an easy going relaxed pace, the wineries were beautiful and the local wine and cuisine was to die for! Highly recommend!
Fantastic day in the Tuscan hills! Our guide has an excellent knowledge of the area. Loved the day.
Excellent whole day experience and our tour guide was exceptional and very passionate when talking about wine. The tour of the winery and the olive oil production plant was very interesting. The wine tasting and accompanying food was fabulous. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to experience and taste a little bit of the local cuisine with beautiful scenery. Thank you
We enjoyed every minutes of this tour! Exactly as described and even more. My girlfriend didn't have a lot of knowledge and she also loved it! Great guide and perfect day in the Chianti.
Our guide, Francesco, was great. The scenery was breathtaking and the wineries were all just what you want from Italy.
Wow! What a truly incredible experience! I loved this tour! We got to see the most beautiful sites in Tuscany and sneak away from the city! I really loved the tour and the food! Martina was a gem and made our day a memorable one! Romantic, relaxing, laid back.... what more can you want? Go Go Go!!!!!
Wonderful scenery, excellent wines, superb 4 course lunch and most of all an outstanding guide. Martina our guide really made the day special with her knowledge and enthusiasm of all things Chianti!!
I absolutely loved this tour! Not only did we have a small group that allowed us to get to know each other and interact, but it took us to locations that we would have never found on our own. We had considered renting a car and doing this ourselves, but I'm so glad we booked this tour instead. The tour guide had a lot of insight into the region, the locations and wine itself. I highly recommend it.
What a day - I would do it again in a heartbeat. Food wine food wine country side - fantastic
Martina was our tour guide for the day and she was awesome! She had a lot of knowledge to share and you can tell she was very enthusiastic and loved her job which definitely makes for a better tour! We learned so much about wine and the views at the estates we visited were amazing. We were served a very generous and delicious portions of lunch and had a total of ten different tastings of wine throughout the day. Definitely check out this tour!
