The trip into wine country was fabulous. Beautiful and comfortable and highly recommended. Our tour guide Valerie was very knowledgeable and fun. My wife and I have taken many wine tours and she was by far the best. Also, you really get your money's worth. Amazing views, wine and food. Came back to our hotel and did not even need to go to dinner. Don't look at any other tour options - just select this one !! Special thanks again to our guide Valerie for making it a special day.
Alex, the tour guide, was very informative. The wineries were all beautiful. The luncheon at the villa were delicious, but the view was even more outstanding. I highly recommend this tour.
My wife and I had such a fantastic day visiting vineyards and tasting wines in the Chianti region. Our guide, Stefano, was very knowledgeable, attentive, and entertaining. The food provided in the 3 course lunch and snacks throughout the day was all delicious and there was ample wine! You didn't see other tour groups at the vineyards and towns we stopped in, so that was nice, felt more authentic! A fabulous day in Tuscany and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a day enjoying great wine around Florence!
Our tour guide, Gloria, was fantastic. She was very informative when speaking about wine and olive oil. She was also very personable and engaged the group. She kept things lively and fun, but also gave us enough space to speak to one another on our own.
WHAT AN AMAZING TOUR! Francesco was THE BEST. Everyone MUST do this tour!!!
I went on this tour with my girlfriend and we had such a wonderful experience! Lavi, our tour guide, was extremely pleasant and knowledgable about the surrounding area and all there is to know about wine and the wine making process. Would definitely reccomend this trip to all who visit Florence.
I would give it ten stars if I could. Great tour, great food, great wine, great group, and a great guide, Valaria.
This trip was perfect from start to finish. I was a bit uncomfortable that it would be a long day given the number of hours we'd be gone. But we stayed busy and relaxed with a little free time in between in a cute little town.
Gloria was our wonderful, informative guide. We visited 2 wineries, had a great lunch with some great wines, all overlooking the beautiful land of Tuscany. Gloria, if you ever come to Boston, look us up! Code word Piccolomini.
We had a wonderful time on this wine tour. Francesco was a terrific guide whose local knowledge and passion for wine, food and history made for a great adventure. We will certainly book a tour with Francesco and Walkabout on our next trip to Florence.
Great tour. We especially loved the resteraunt, the food was amazing and the location was stunning. Our guide Valeria was very knowledgeable about wine but still managed to make the tour fun while informative. Highly recommend this tour for people who love wine, food and beautiful scenery!
My parents and I absolutely loved this tour which was one of the highlights of our stay in Florence. Alessandro was our guide and he was wonderful as he was knowledgeable about the region, Italian history and wine! It was great that we were able to visit smaller wineries and I cannot say enough good things about the delicious wine and food we had throughout the day. I highly recommend this tour for a full Tuscan experience.
What a fantastic day we had as we traveled through Tuscany! Beautiful views, wonderful tastings 9 different wines, food pairings, and an off-roading adventure to a beautiful restaurant on a vineyard in the woods. We learned so much about Chianti region along with the wine, but our favorite part was our wonderful tour guide Lavi! She was so personable and energetic and made the trip so much fun! I would love to go on another tour with her.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. From the tour guide to the food and learning experience we could not have enjoyed it more.
Our guide Francesco was fantastic! We couldn't have asked for better. We fell in love with the Chianti and really enjoyed driving around the countryside and taking in all the views. We learnt how to appreciate good wine, without any snobbery! The lunch was perfect and featured a stunning backdrop. We would certainly look up Walkabout Florence in the future and particularly try and book another tour with Francesco.
Great tour!! Was a highlight of our trip to Florence! The wine and food was delicious! The guide was knowledgeable and spunky. Her name was Valerie. The wineries visited are beautiful. Worth the money!
Lavinia is the BEST! She is a beautiful, knowledgable local. She was great at making anyone feel comfortable, yet so knowledgable that the tour was fitting for beginners and advanced wine tasters alike. The cheese was delicious, the lunch amazing, and the boar and other sausages at the end were delectable. This was easily the highlight of my entire stay in Italy. Great food and wine! What's not to like?
George Clooney has eaten at the lunch restaurant twice. They have gluten free options!!! I had GF pasta and they gave me rice cakes too for the appetizers. If you're thinking about doing this at all, DO IT! And ask for Lavinia because she's seriously the best. This is a great way to get off your feet after walking so much in Florence. Plus, you get to see the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany that you don't see in the cities. Do not miss this if you're in Florence!!!!
This was hands down the best thing we did while in Florence, and that's saying something. You get a LOT of quality for the money with this tour. We had tours and tastings and two wineries, along with a spectacular lunch with an additional tasting with a stunning view of the Tuscan countryside. We also stopped for some free time in a small village in Chianti, which was one of the highlights for us. Our guide Alessandro was great: knowledgeable about wines and the area, funny, and personable. The driver whose name escapes me now was also very professional and did a great job. The van is air conditioned and comfortable, with space to securely stow your personal belongings and all the wine, food, and trinkets you'll want to buy along the way. The group was about 12 people or so, and it was fun that we happened to all be around the same age 20s/30s. Would definitely highly recommend.
Do it!!! Do this tour!!!! Do Not miss this tour! Get the guide Lavi!!!! Awesome....
I wrote a review but forgot the stars... This is a 10 star.... Cannot say enough..... Ask for Lavi
She made the tour..... Go! Go! Awesome... Do you think I loved it...YES...GO! Take this tour
You will not be disappointed at all......I promise
This was one of our favorite things during our 12 day tour of Italy. The weather was perfect, so that always helps, but the views were gorgeous. Our guide was amazing. The wine and food pairings were delicious. Highly recommended if you are staying in Florence for a couple of days.
Absolutely amazing and a must do-- no questions asked. Perfect atmosphere in a Tuscan kitchen. Incredible backdrop scenery to see. incredible food to learn about and how to prepare. We LOVED this tour. our guides Molly and Gloria were fantastic. Chef Isaac was great too.
Val our guide was really awesome. She answered all of our questions and was clearly knowledgeable and passionate about wine. We booked this tour because of all the positive responses on trip advisor and they couldn't be more right. If you want to try a variety of wines and see much of the Tuscany countryside I would highly recommend this tour. The views were awesome and the wine even better!
It was amazing! We even had one of the visitors on the tour with us singing opera to his girlfriend it the vineyard after lunch. He sounded wonderful in the Tuscan hills!
What a lovely day in Chianti. Our guide was absolutely amazing and the places and the wine were what every wine tour should be about.
Glad we picked the tour... next time we visit we are sure to stay in the Chianti region for a couple of days!
