Private guide and driver for a personalized experience
We had a great day being driven around by Adriano. He knew all the best spots in each town for photos and views, and was great entertainment and good company. The wine was delicious, of course, and so was the lunch. The benefit of a private tour is that we were able to stop along the way for a photo on the roadside if we passed a particularly picturesque spot, and that we could adjust the time we spent at each stop to our preferences. Would recommend.
We were a group of 8 adults doing a private wine tour. Andriano was our driver and guide. He offered to change our tour and alter it to meet our needs because it was raining the day of our tour. We did the original wine tour and were very happy with our experience. We had time in both towns and Pienze as well. Andriano had suggestions for us and where to shop, view and things to look at. He had much information about Italy and answers to many other questions we had.
The lunch at the winery was very personal and they catered to our needs and provided a great experience.
We would highly recommend this tour.
Luka was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable about the region. He took us to a privately owned small vineyard serving Brunello wines paired with lunch. The food and wine pairings were delicious, fresh, and some of the best we had on our trip to Italy. We were also able to tour several of the local Tuscan villages. I highly recommend booking this tour.
Thank you for the compliments Tammmy, we do the best to handpick our favourite wineries, as Goethe said "Life is too short to drink ordinary wines". I hope to meet you again in your next trip to Tuscany !
Aug 21, 2017. The best private tour we have ever been on. Luca our driver and guide was extremely knowledgeable about Italian history as well as all the wines we tried during our trip. The trip started with being picked up at the hotel in Florence and then went to visit wineries as well as take in the amazing Tuscan scenery. The selected wineries were great choices as they were all personal and intimate settings with one on one attention. The wine-paired private lunch was very romantic and the food was all prepared with fresh, organic ingredients grown on the property. We highly recommend this trip with Luca as your guide as he was fun, friendly, and a pleasure to spend the day with.
Had a fabulous tour filled with history, insights, great food and wine. I've done a number of tours in the past and would highly recommend this experience. We ended the day to a very small winery where we tasted a wide range of wines and vintages. The labels on the Brunello's are even hand painted by the Artist / Winemaker / Owner. One of the most fascinating people I've met in the wine business. Do not miss out on this experience!
Luca was awesome and very knowledgeable about Montalcino and Montepulciano. He takes you through the beautiful countryside and the winery in Montepulciano was awesome! The wine cellar is an old cave and was amazing to see and tour. And the wine was delicious!
