This tour was very enjoyable and the guide, Stephano as well as the driver were great! Stephano obviously loves his job and it showed with the breadth and depth of his knowledge. The driver forgot his name amazed me as to how he knew his way around the Tuscany region like the back of his hand. All in all, I highly recommend this tour!

This was a great tour. The only negative was that instead of being a small group in a 4x4 it had been changed to a bus with 25 in the group. This would have been fine if we were not sitting right in the back of the bus which had very poor suspension in the rear and every time we hit a bump were shaken and jarred. The people in the front did not experience this.
This was the only negative. Our guide Francesco was extremely warm and welcoming as well as being very knowledgeable about the area as well as the wines. Our first stop was great. The cellars are located in a tower. The view from the top looking out over the Tuscan countryside was fantastic. The wine tour was very informative and the tasting excellent.
The farm we visited for lunch was quite picturesque with beautiful views also. The food was excellent and plentiful. Lunch was very relaxing. The next winery was also very good and the views again were great. We had a lovely day and would recommend this tour so long as the suspension in the bus is fixed.

This was my favorite day in Italy! The trip was well organized and the bus was comfortable. Francesco was charming, warm and friendly and so informative and funny. The castle/winery that we stopped at first was breathtaking, and the wines were very good. Francesco and Janine explained very clearly, how the wine was made and also how the olive oil was made. The tastes were generous. Lunch at the restaurant overlooking the valley was delicious! We had a filling meal with 3 more glasses of wine. We stopped in Greve-in-Chianti for a short shopping visit and got to see what a small town in Tuscany was like. The last winery had beautiful views and the wines there were delicious too.
All in all the day was wonderful - happy, fun, and tasty. I highly recommend this trip!

What a great day and spectacular scenery. Luca was an expert in the wine and cheese. The castle was breathtaking and we had to bring a bottle of their wine home. They were unable to produce olive oil this year but we did get to see the process and taste last years and it was delicious.

Fantastic day long tour. We ate at a great restaurant. Tasted wine at a castle winery and then at the end of the day a different winery. Food and wine was enjoyable the whole day. Fantastic scenery. Great visits in small Tuscan town. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about wine and about the area all around Florence

We visited Italy Rome, Tuscany, and Roio - small town where my mother was born but this tour of Tuscany was the highlight of our trip. We were very excited to see Tuscany and visit the wineries and taste the food. This tour went beyond our expectations. It was a perfect planned tour to visit wineries, taste the wonderful food, and visit the quaint town of Greve. Martina, our guide, did a fabulous job. We learned so much about the history of the region, wine making and olive oil production, and the meats and cheeses of this region. We could not give this tour a 5 star without her as our guide. We can't imagine someone else doing a better job as her. We want to come back to Tuscany someday and try other tours from Viator! Thank you for making our trip so memorable!

Excellent , delicious and so informative with a warm and delightful guide, Martina.

The only negative note is the bus seemed to have no shock absorbers which made the ride unpleasant at times.

Excellent tour ..... One of the highlights of the trip. Francesca the guide was also excellent .... He struck just the right cord and gave interesting information. The wine estates were very good and provided more than enough wine. Lunch was good and views great. Would highly recommend the tour.

Martina was a wonderful tour guide! I am studying abroad in Florence, and my parents came to visit for a week. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day. There was a great group of people on the tour with us that helped to make it really fun. Martina was extremely knowledgeable, we feel that we learned so much from her. The food was delicious, and the wine was amazing!

This is a great full day of touring the wonderful Tuscan countryside. Two beautiful wineries and a fantastic full lunch at a very out of the way location makes this a five out of five rating. Very worthwhile.

Francesco made this tour very fun and interesting. Visiting the different vineyards, tasting the wine and then the farmhouse lunch on the veranda overlooking the Tuscan countryside is a treat and shouldn't be missed!! A great tour!! Highly recommend it!

Yes, the Tuscan countryside is beautiful, the Chianti is excellent, the locations that this full day tour takes you to are breathtaking, but the best part of the tour was the people. Martina was a great guide explaining everything we wanted to know, she is also a fun and very interesting person. The small group of strangers quickly became friends and had the best day touring vineyards, castles and restaurants that we never could have seen otherwise. If you are near this part of the world, book this tour.
