Traveler Tips


Make sure you know exactly where to meet the bus as it wasn't where Google Maps originally indicated, its a bit behind the train station.
Finding the meeting point was a bit tough - read the instructions carefully!
I would bring a snack as the food is light and the glasses are heavy.

Bonisimo Wine Tour at Tuscany Italy
MaAileen_S, Feb 2023
The Wine Tour at the vineyards of Casa Emma served organic wine . Fantastic taste! At the vineyard of Fattoria Montecchio, we tasted Finocchiona , Capocollo and Pecorino Toscano cheese. So delicious! Only available in Tuscany region. We had a great and memorable time to celebrate our wedding anniversary with a toast. The teracotta barrels at Montecchio were also interesting and unique. Bonisimo!
Fantastic experience and price
david_l, Jan 2023
Fantastic wine and great commentary but it would have been a much more enjoyable trip of the tasting tables had been prepared in advance. Waiting for 25 people to get poured a glass is seriously time consuming. With only one person pouring it’s not efficient. Beautiful countryside and comfortable bus.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Dear david_l, thank you for your kind review, we are happy to read that you had a fantastic experience with us! Regarding the pourings you mention, depending on the wine and its vintage, each wine has its rules to open itself to be fully appreciated. Moreover, each winery tries to create a relaxing and enjoyable environment, where everyone can just appreciate the moment with no rush. Considering that it takes about 2 minutes per wine to be poured, we feel that even this aspect, the host pouring your glass of wine, is part of the experience and cannot be considered as time wasted. On the contrary, our tour is meant to be a wine experience, a moment of relaxation to enjoy wine, and company while learning more about the local history and wines. Thank you again and hope to have you back with us on your next trip to Italy, all the very best wishes from Prestige Rent staff

Beautiful wineries.
Sharon_K, Dec 2022
Great tour to two beautiful wineries! Our tour guide, Raefaela, was friendly and informative. The wines at each location were wonderful with great explanations of where they come from, along with tastings of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The food at our second winery was delicious, the room we sat in was gorgeous and the wine again was wonderful. Each place gave a generous amount of wine as well just maybe not enough time to drink it. You start chatting with your table mates and you want to just keep socializing!

Great experience in Tuscany! Had the opportunity to try delicious wine and local foods in the region. The guides had great explanations into the wine and even got to tour a cellar where the manufacturing process was described. High recommended for any wine and food connoisseur!
Magical day and tour!

Raffaele was an awesome host and made the day so much fun and interesting. My wife and I’d favorite tour of our vacation. Explored two wonderful winery’s and had plenty to drink and eat. Very breathtaking views from both and you get to see a fair amount of the Tuscan countryside. Tony was a fun driver as well. Would highly recommend this tour for couples and/or families

Italy Honeymoon.
Cristobal_F, Nov 2022
The tour was fantastic. In the way, they gave us a little history of the city surroundings. The two winery's are small family own. Produce great wines unfortunately locally. The second one produce olive oil. We went November, by that time they pick up the olives and we try fresh batch. Half of the day is more than enough!!
Great for the Price
Erin_T, Nov 2022
Great for the price! Road a bus with a bunch of other Americans to 2 wineries with great landscapes. Great wine and cheese throughout!
