We enjoyed the scenery and the locations. It was just the right amount of time at each "castle". We tasted a variety of wines and heard the history of the area and locations. Lunch was great. Appreciated the information on wine making.

What an amazing and informative way to enjoy a day in the chianti region. Our host was charming and engaging. We were educated on the history and development of each wine we tried. MATTEO our guide was even better. He is a highly trained sommelier and genuine nice guy. Witty and knowledgeable without arrogance. Rare find and so worthy of high praise. The afternoon lunch was delicious as well. Our small group got along well and shared many stories. I would reccomend this tour!

Small-Group Truffle Hunting and Wine Experience from Florence with Lunch | Nov 2019
We had a great day hunting mushrooms and wine tasting with Hillary. She was so informative and knew so much about Italy. Her knowledge wasn’t limited to just the Tuscan region. We learned a ton about Italy from her. She went above and beyond to give us a special day.

Sublime Experience

Small-Group Truffle Hunting and Wine Experience from Florence with Lunch | Aug 2019
How many people can say they have hunted for black truffles and then enjoyed the fruits of their labor? My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed going with the truffle hunter and his dogs as they meandered through the woods in search of truffles. Along the way, we learned about the unique conditions required for truffles as well as the condition to get them. We brought back five truffles. We were then treated to a simple but thoughtful lunch that incorporated truffles in every course including dessert. Afterwards, we traveled to a lovely vineyard where we learned about olive oil and wine and enjoyed tastings of each. Our guide Paola is a sommelier so he had a tremendous insight and passion for the subject at hand. Overall, this was an amazing experience that will be a memory we cherish.

Small-Group Truffle Hunting and Wine Experience from Florence with Lunch | Jan 2019
This is great trip to see the Tuscan countryside. You get to find truffles, eat the local cuisine, try and learn the wines produced in the area. Our local guide (Matteo) was great, his english was excellent, conversations with him were lively and interesting. Also his driving was excellent. On the whole it's worth it. You get an awesome adventure while being wined and dined. It's an awesome way to get over jet lag.My wife and I are planning on doing it again.

Private Tour: Prosecco Wine Tasting Day Trip with Lunch from Venice | Oct 2017

Tour guide was attentive and shared hidden 'local' small town restaurant for the included traditional lunch. Both prosecco tasting experiences were great and offered different settings: beautiful country hillsides and a small town event location. We were rushed out of the 2nd due to an event going on. We even stopped at a wonderful local cheese shop/factory for cheese tastes, though we were told later that we needed to pay 3euro for this special stop. Rating would be 5 stars and tip higher if cheese stop was an added/covered touch.

Small-Group Truffle Hunting and Wine Experience from Florence with Lunch | Jul 2017

This was the perfect excursion from Florence! In our small group of 6 (3 sets of couples who didn't know each other before the day began) we melded well and had fun exploring the Tuscan countryside, wine and food together. Hillary, our guide was exceptional and was a font of Italian history and knowledge.

The entire experience was wonderful. From the start of the tour, the drive to the farm, the friendly farmer, his super dogs, his way of explaining all aspects of truffle hunting...followed by an amazing lunch...all was superb.It was followed by wine tasting and learning the nuances of wine making...also par excellence.
All in all, we had a wonderful day......a memory for a lifetime

What a great tour! It was wonderful to explore the countryside, a more remote cathedral and to spend one at a beautiful Tuscan villa. The vineyard we visited was great and we are excited to receive the package of wine that they are shipping for us. I highly recommend this tour!

Private Tour: Prosecco Wine Tasting Day Trip with Lunch from Venice | Nov 2016

Our guide Marco was very informative and really knew the area and the wines. All 4 of us totally enjoyed the day with him. He took us out to the Valdobbiadene I believe that's the right name wine region. Had a great lunch at a local restaurant in a small town, the food was fantastic. We were very lucky to make the last tour of the season. One day later and we would have missed it. It is definitely a must do while in Venice. Once small complaint was that the directions from Viator to find Marco at the Tronchetto were not that clear. We did of course find him and he was there waiting on us. It is really a great tour!!.

Our guide Marco was super in arranging our wine tasting to two wineries and the Lunch was memorable because it really was local cuisine with homemade real Italian foods. The owner chef provided high quality food with really so much to eat and the bottle of wine was great with the meal. This was an all day fun filled tour which we will remember always.

Private Tour: Prosecco Wine Tasting Day Trip with Lunch from Venice | Sep 2016

This was a really wonderful tour. March was very informative and we had a lovely day. He was very patient with our broken Italian that we were practising on him. The two wineries we visited were very nice and we risked being overweight in our luggage by buying a couple of bottles of prosecco which we cannot get at home.
Would not hesitate to recommend this tour and being personally guided by Marco was a treat.
