Excellent tour of the vineyards and historic sights of Chianti. Guide was very friendly and informative. Trips to Castellina in Chianti and Monteriggioni were short but didn't need to stay longer on a chilly February day. The highlight of the tour was the visit to two wonderful Chianti vineyards - excellent wine and truffle oil! tasting that tempted me to spend quite a bit on some great wines.

This tour was a good way to spend an afternoon but frankly the driver, a gentleman named David as I recall, drove so badly it was difficult to enjoy the Tuscan views. The two vineyards we visited were wonderful with knowledgeable staff and lovely wines to sample. We saw a castle and walked around the small town, but there wasn't an actual castle tour.

Small comfortable van, great guide and beautiful countryside. Worth the time it took to get to the first stop

Loved everything about the tour. Both wineries were informative and generous with tastings. The castle visit was short but great, just enough time to get a feel for the village. The driver was great. Recommend

Our driver Adel was great. And Marco from the winery was great. The Cianti Classico and truffle oil were both amazing. I like that we got to see a small winery and was able to easily ship them back to America, so I didn't have to deal with putting wine bottles in my luggage. The castle was cute. The winery we went to was called the Famiglia mazzoretti I think. Small, charming with a nice family. And then we went to another winery. I'd go again for sure. Bring your camera! Thank you Adel the driver!

A beautiful afternoon in Tuscany! The driver was pleasant and friendly. It was lovely to explore Montereggioni and Castellina, and the vineyards were also a treat. We learned a lot about Chianti and have a new appreciation for the wines.

Vittorio was a great driver! He picked us up from our hotel and there were only 4 people in our group, which was perfect. We visited 2 castles and 2 wineries. Great picks for the wineries where we received a personalized tour of the winery with taste testing. Learned a lot!

Poorly organized, driver who thought he was a comedian, did not even go to the castle.
