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!
Alessandro was a wonderful host. He was knowledgeable, funny and always in good spirits. The tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy. Thank you Allessandro!

Francesco was an amazing tour guide. He was very knowledgable about the wine, area and history. Throughout the tour, he made sure each and every one of us was enjoying our time. He learned everyone's names and was very personable. Sergio, the driver, also made sure we got everywhere safely!

We thoroughly enjoyed this 10-hour winery and Tuscany tour. Francesco was our tour guide and Maximo our driver. Francesco was knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. It was a great way to see a much of Tuscany countryside without a car with a base in Florence. We visited a beautiful large winery in the morning and a quaint smaller one in the afternoon. also beautiful. Lunch was a delicious feast at a restaurant in the Tuscan hills overlooking the beautiful countryside where we sampled 3 additional wines. We visited Greve in Chianti in the afternoon where we had 40 minutes to tour on our own and then visited a smaller winery before we headed back to Florence. Our only recommendation is that they leave at the stated time instead of waiting for individuals that are running late. We left at 9:15a.m. instead of 9am and the guests did not show up. Perhaps we would have had an additional 15 minutes in Greve had we left on time.
the tour was very well organized. The organizer was very knowledgeable about wines and took us to some prime wineries in Tuscany. The Tuscan lunch with an open view was amazing as well. We tried exotic meats and wines.... which I don't think I would have ordered by myself. I also liked the education on tasting the wine.
I do want to state- that this tour may not be for vegetarians as there is good amount of meat served and little veggie options. I loved it. But, veggies and vegans may want to think about it.
This is a case where pictures and descriptions don't do justice to the actual experience. Outstanding
Such a beautiful part of the country - every where you looked was like a postcard. Valeria was great! Very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot about wine in general, as well as wine from Tuscany Chianti, the local food, and history.
It was fantastic! Despite the fact it was the hottest week in florence, Alessandro made it fun, breathtakingly beautiful and delicious.
The tour was great - the food and wine was excellent! The tour guides were enthusiastic, friendly and great - and very knowledgeable.
A wonderful time for the family, even kept our two sons 20's entertained. The tour guide was very informative and the locations visited were awesome.
Francesco was our guide for this trip and he was excellent. He has a lot of knowledge and interest in what he is telling you and made the whole day really good. The lunch was excellent and beautiful setting. The whole day was lovely.
This is a must!!! The tour was so much fun and is exactly how it is described in the description if not better. We were delighted to have Alessandro as our tour guide and he kept it fun but also very informative. The wine was superb and lunch not only was delicious but a beautiful scenery for multiple pictures to enjoy. Both of the winery's were very unique and different and allowed us to see both a small and a medium to large producing winery. I would recommend this to all wine lovers who want to be enchanted by the chianti region. Trust us was worth it!!!!
This was a FANTASTIC tour. Our guide, Francesco, was extremely knowledgeable. He did a great job of telling us all about the area, the history, and he knew his wines well. We did spend some time on the mini-bus, but it was well designed to break it up with stops so you can get out and stretch. I would highly recommend it.
This was a great trip. LOTS of wine. Good pairings through the whole day. It was just the right amount of wine, food, learning and adventure.
This was a very good tour. The wine was extrodinary and the lunch was excellent. I especially enjoyed the tour guide Valery who had an excellent knowledge of the wine and region of Chianti.
Our guide Alexandro is great, full of knowledge in Chianti wine or other foods. This trip is a worth one to try.
If anyone has ever seen the movie Under The Tuscan Sun, this is your tour! Our guide, Valeria, was thoughtful, knowledgable, friendly and a great guide. We loved all the tastings, food and the most amazing breathtaking sights. There were no crowds and so it was pleasant to get lost in. I would highly recommend this tour. I would highly recommend Valeria and her wine skill set. Bravo!
This tour was really amazing. Our tour guide Alessandro was real fun, and knew so much about the Chianti region and wine. The wine yards were beautiful, we got an insight on how they make wine, and of course taste it yumm. The resturant La Cantinetta Di Rignana served good food and this magical view over the Tuscan hills.
Hats off to the tour guide, but also to the bus driver who managed to take us through some of the most narrow and steep roads I have ever experienced.
Beautiful tour! Our guide, Alessandro was great. The views along this tour were breathtaking. We went to two wineries and had a beautiful family style lunch.
What a great tour! You will not be disappointed. Francesco, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable of the
Chianti region and wine produces which made it extra special and the wines were great!
This tour is worth doing, it's long but goes by so quickly! You get a beautiful overview of the countryside and the tour guide Valeria is great! She's knowledgeable on the area and wines. You leave this tour with a full belly, delicious wine on the tongue and a new knowledge for wine. Thanks Valeria
