What You Can Expect
Make your first stop in Castellina in Chianti for a relaxed stroll through the medieval streets with your guide. If your sweet tooth starts calling, stop to purchase an Italian gelato along the way.
Afterward, travel to a Chianti wine estate to learn about the production process while touring the grounds and cellars. Try a complimentary tasting of high-quality olive oil, accompanied by Black Rooster Chianti Classico wine.
Continue to the town of Monteriggioni, where you'll enjoy some free time to wander independently. As you explore, note the surrounding ring of 13th-century walls and turrets, which once served as Siena’s main line of defense against the Florentine armies.
Arrive in San Gimignano in the late afternoon, with free time to check out the Collegiata di San Gimignano, shop for hand-crafted pottery and leather goods or admire the medieval architecture and impressive towers.
Then travel to a rustic farmhouse just out of town for a traditional Tuscan dinner, complemented by red Chianti blends and tastings of San Gimignano’s famous white wine, Vernaccia. Watch the sunset over San Gimignano and the surrounding landscape while you’re served fresh vegetables, cured meats and cheeses out on the terrace.
After dinner, enjoy a relaxing trip back to Siena.
Five star all the way!! These tour leaders are fantastic, they are knowledgeable and fun and made it all very worthwhile. Would love to do a two day trip with them to a few more areas including olive oil tasting, cheese and balsamic.

It was outstandingly good and Marella Favruzzo is a superb guide.
He entire tour was wonderful.
Great tour guide - very friendly and knowledgable. Awesome views of the countryside. Winery/dinner was really awesome.
The tour was wondrful. Daniel and Sylvie were both interesting and informative and fun! We really saw many different sites and experienced the exellent food and wine. Would recomend this any time.
We were a group of four gals and our guide was delightful, spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable. We would never have been able to see as much as we did without a guide. The farm where we ate dinner was beautiful, and the food and service were great.
The guide was full of knowledge about the region. The farmhouse meal was superb.
Amazing! Rain and all our guide Made the outing enjoyable. I will take this tour again next year with my friend.
This tour was worth the price. Elena and Milo were wonderful guides- informative, funny and answered any and all questions with a wealth of knowledge about the Tuscany area. The winery and farm dinner were by far the highlights of the tour.

We enjoyed this tour very much, wine tasting and San Gimignano was our favourite parts. Milo was an absolute star, very knowledgeable about tuscan wines. I wish we had more time because I would have loved to do another tour with them. We never visited Monteriggioni which was very disappointing.
