Excellent tour! Our guide was an absolute gent and brimming over with knowledge about the local wines.
Great tour for the money. You get to visit more wineries, castles, towns and a awesome restraint! would highly recommend it!
Although this was not the tour we originally wanted to do, this small group tour was great! The tour had a nice relaxed pace, the wines were great and the lunch was incredible. Our guide, Stefano was knowledgeable, professional and very funny. He entertained us the whole day!
It is a "must do" trip. The ride, the wineries, the wine tasting, the olive oil tasting, the view...really, really good. Two thumbs up also for Stephano, the tour guide. A very nice person, knows a lot about wine, and, specially, knows how to explain and make people like wines. Good food. Good places. Good stops. And good price. Will definitely recommend to my friends...already did, actually.
The tour was one of the high lights of my 5 weeks in Italy. Martina was a wonderful guide, informative and with a wonderful sense of humor. The estates visited were beautiful, Cinciano was my favorite! Lunch was excellent and served with alot of laughter. The group was small and we felt like a family long before the day was over. The experience of getting into Chianti counrty and small back roads takes away the feeling of being a "tourist". I have already made my reservations for the apartment in Fflorence for next fall and as I get closer to the date will book for the cooking class. In summery:
Transportation-very comfortable and Fabio is a great driver
Locations visited - beautiful and well planned
Guide- Martina was fantastic!!!
In October, my boyfriend and I visited 6 cities/4 countries in Europe and out of all those days, this was our favorite day. We almost didn't book this tour because we were only going to be in Florence for 3 days, but we ended up taking our chances and we are so happy we did. The tour is absolutely worth every penny. We learned so much about Chianti wine, the cheese, olive oil, the customs and traditions, and so much history. The wines, cheese, olive oil and lunch were absolutely delicious. And it was lovely getting to know the other individuals on this tour. What made this experience complete was Lucca, our tour guide. He was both knowledgeable, charismatic, and very funny. The driver was also very nice and we enjoyed getting to know both of them. I highly recommend this tour.
What an amazing tour! We had a great time. Our Tour-guide was fun a lot of fun. Lunch was fabulous!
We had an amazing tour with Stefano! He taught us so much about the wine making and Tuscan culture. Our group enjoyed the food, the wine and the history we learned. Stefano kept it entertaining and educational.
This tour was very well thought out with each stop adding a unique taste of Tuscany. As great as the tour was our guide Luca was better. His knowledge of the history in the area, the wines we tasted, and being well traveled himself allowed him to be relatable to everyone in the group.
Our tour was absolutely amazing and Chris is a fantastic tour guide! He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! It is so obvious that he loves what he is doing! The sights, food, wine, and hospitality at all of the places we visited exceeded our expectations! If you are trying to decide between this tour and another ... Choose this one, you will not be disappointed!

Perfect in every way. Luca, our guide was terrific and the entire day was outstanding. From the logistics, to the scenery to the food and wine, it would be difficult to improve this tour.
My wife, my daughter and I went on this tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Stephano our guide was fantastic, funny, knowledgeable and even in the pouring rain we enjoyed every minute!
The best wine tour I've every done. It will be very difficult to top. Our tour guide, Chris, who works for walkaboutflorence, was the best tour guide I have ever had in my life. He is a well rounded up-standing guy who his very knowledgeable of Italy's history, specifically the Tuscan/Chianit region and an excellent guide for the wine tour.
Beautiful countryside, amazing wine and olive oil. The food for our lunch was outstanding.
