This was a really fun tour. We tasted a lot of great wines, saw so much beautiful country-side and ate delicious food. Our guide was Martina and she was very funny and knowledgable. Greve is not the most exciting town in Tuscany so I'd say that part was not a highlight but the rest of the tour more than makes up for it. Thoroughly recommended!
The drive is so beautiful through the back roads of the Chianti country side. Our tour guide was so friendly and informative. The lunch and view were spectacular. We would do it again.
We had a great time on this trip. The wine and food was amazing! And Stephan was a great tour guide, he is very knowledgeable and passionate about wine and made the tour even better.
Stefano, our guide, was passionate and knowledgeable about food
and wine! Our lunch was fabulous! The wineries we visited were lovely and the countryside was like a postcard. A perfect day!
My friend and I attended this tour in late September. We woke up late, the van already left, so we took a cab to the first stop at Poppiano Castle. Chris, our guide, kindly brought us inside and we started on this wonderful day of tasting delicious wines, cheeses, olive oils, and of course the lovely family-styled lunch with endless food.
Chris was amazingly entertaining and knowledgeable, but most importantly passionate about good wine and food, his family, and connecting with people. I dropped and cracked my phone screen, he took the trouble to check with his dad about where to go for fix - his dad the next day personally took me to the shop and negotiated a good rate for me.
We loved the quieter small group. This tour in the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany, with endless glasses of Chianti and foods and the most amazing tour guide was definitely a highlight for us in Italy.
Also, even though people say Chris look like Ben Affleck, we think he's much better looking than Ben :)
My husband and I went to Italy a few weeks back. And this was our favorite day of the whole trip. Our tour guide Chris was amazing-he knows so much and was enthusiastic about Tuscany and of course- wine! Each stop was different and we learned so much!! Perfect day! Do it!
Great trip. Luca was a great host / guide with a wealth of knowledge about local history, wine and cheese. Highly recommend for a day away from the madding crowds in Florence.
My husband and I had a wonderful day on this tour. Our guide, Luca was excellent. He gave an interesting historical overview on Florence, Tuscany, Chianti wines and olive oils. The 2 beautiful vineyards we
visited were amazing. We both learned so much about the wines, olive oils and wine tasting. We had delicious pecorino cheeses and focaccia for a snack while seeing beautiful Tuscan countryside. Our lunch at La Cantinetta di Rignara was fabulous. We had a variety of tasty local homemade dishes. The wines served were yummy, too. We would love to take this tour again. Considering the cost and challenge of driving and gas ($9.35) in this area, we both felt the cost of the tour with the lunch, snack, wine tastings, tour guide and driver was very reasonable.
Absolutely LOVED Luca. I learned a lot and had a wonderful time doing it. The wines were excellent, the food was great. Beautiful countryside. Beautiful and interesting wineries.
Beautiful land, tasty wine and food and a wonderful guide named Chris.Definitely recommended.
Stephano was fantastic, as was the tour and all the food. Would recommend to anyone
Tour was great and guide was extremely helpful. Lunch was more than you could eat and the wine was plentiful.
