Val was a great tour guide! It was easy to find the pick up location and our day was quite enjoyable even though it rained all day. We got to see two different wineries and lots of the countryside. Wonderful food and excellent wine! Would highly recommend it.
Martina and Carmella were excellent. Got some great info but most of all had great fun. Food and setting were wonderful.
our tour guide Alex was phenomenal. informative, knowlegdable with a wonderful sense of humor and respect for his clients. tour was conducted in a timely manner, left on time and arrived back to florence as promised. we visited two vineyards, a fabulous lunch and time to explore Greve on our own. THanks also to Riccardo, our tour bus driver, who deserves much credit in navigating the roads in the countryside. a safe and amazing tour. don't miss this one.
Francesco, the tour guide, was fabulous. His knowledge of wines, his descriptions of how to value wine and appreciate its complexity was enlightening. His appreciation of the very things he was describing was apparent and enthusiastic. I have recommended this tour to people I know who are going to Italy and would take this tour again. Thank you, Francesco
An awesome day, thank you Alessandro!
Before this trip we didn't realise how varied Chianti can be. Was great to be able to taste such a variety in different locations around Chianti. Especially enjoyed lunch at a restaurant overlooking the Tuscan countryside - AMAZING!
Great tour. See the back roads of Chanti with a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. Stefano was excellent and fun. Lunch was amazing. Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting more than to be dropped off at a square and left to your own devices.
This was a spectacular trip! We had so much fun, and our guide Martina was first class. She made everything so interesting and delightful--she was excellent at her job. Every detail of the trip was taken care of for us--it really was a dreamy escape. The food and wine was delicious and everything was well thought out and executed. We could not have dreamed for it to have been any more wonderful. Book this now!! It is worth its weight in gold, and you definitely won't regret it!
I chose this tour to see more of Tuscany than some of the more standard wine tours, and it did not disappoint. The food was great, the guide was great, the wine was great, the scenery was great. No pressure to buy anything at any of the wineries. Very enjoyable day.
Great job Martina !!!, Informative, clear and precise. Hello to Sergio our safe driver.
It was a beautiful day for this excursion. Our guide was the best! Would highly recommend this to everyone looking to spend an amazing day in Chianti region in Tuscany
This tour was a lot of fun! The food was delicious - served family style and there was more than enough food left over. All of the wine was excellent and our tour guide was great at explaining everything. The tour is run by a company called Walkabout Florence, so I would recommend checking there website for more information as well it is called wine and food safari on their site.
A great trip out of Florence on a beautiful spring day. Lots of great food and wine, fantastic scenery with a very knowledgeable and affable guide.
This was the most amazing tour I have had the opportunity to take . Our tour guide made this a four start, from the very start to the finish. Even if you are not a wine lover, the countryside, the tastings, the locations were out of this world!!!!
The trip was just amazing. We had 9 amazing glasses of wine. The scenery of Tuscan hills was lovely. Our guide, Alessandro, is a great guide and a very friendly nice guy. Really recommended it!
By far the best tour I have ever been on! Martina was one of the most knowledgeable, charismatic, and overall amazing tour guide out there! You won't believe how much you get for you money you spend on this your. The best day of learning and drinking plenty of amazing wine! Would recommend this tour to anyone, and would love to thank Martina again for the best day of our week long Italian excursion!
Fantastic experience, and not just for wine snobs. The tour of the Tuscan countryside with a knowledgeable guide was the highlight of our trip. Well done!
As expected this was one of the highlights of our trip. We had high expectations, and this tour certainly did not disappoint!
The tour starts in Florence and drives unpaved Tuscan roads leading South somewhere close to Sienna. The views along the way were incredible. The first stop was an estate that made both wine and olive oil. The second was a picturesque little restaurant with an amazing spread and an even better view. The third was a small Tuscan village that truly gives you a feel for their culture. Finally, we visited another winery with more amazing wine and views. Overall the wine was incredible, the food was incredible, the views were incredible.
Our guide Francesco did a superb job. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area, the wine making process, the culture, etc... He answered all of our questions and gave us a glimpse into this fascinating region. Really gained a lot of insight from his knowledge and perspective.
Can not recommend this tour enough. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
This was such a wonderful trip! Before we left, I was disappointed because the trip I booked from the website was not the trip we were given was sold as visiting a Reggiano cheese maker, which I was really looking forward to, and later was updated that it did not include that stop.
We visited two wineries and possibly the most amazing restaurant I've ever been to- if there is a prettier view in the world, I'd love to see it!
A big highlight of the experience was our guide, Valeria. She had such a wealth of knowledge about the area and history, and her education in winemaking was invaluable. It really added to the experience to see and hear the work that goes in to every delicious glass of Tuscan wine. I feel like she let us in to a little part of her world, and it added so much to the tour.
I would highly recommend this tour and especially if you can book with Valeria. You will not be disappointed!
Valera was a fantastic and knowledgable guide we learnt a lot. Wine, food and countryside amazing. Great day
One of the best tours we've ever taken. Our guide Valeria was great fun and very knowledgeable. The wineries were very good. The lunch was awesome, overlooking a beautiful valley and so ample we could barely finish our third course.
Valeria Blanco did a great job. She was knowledgeable and easy to listen to.
The driver, Fabio?, did a great job too. Handling that big vehicle on those demanding roads required skill and attention.
One of the highlights of our trip this winter. Martina was amazing. The wineries were amazing and lunch was incredible as well...All around one of the best tour experiences I have ever been on. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
