Thanks to google maps and the "look for a fuscia jacket", we found the departure location easily. The bus was comfortable and full of younger people than us, but everyone was very respectable. The tour guide Renata was wonderful, friendly, helpful, and provided some information on Florence as we were driving out to the vineyards. Strongly suggest going to the bathroom before getting on the bus as the wineries only have a couple of bathrooms to use and you do not want to miss anything. I also strongly suggest bringing a bit of food and water on this tour to help if you are not a huge wine drinker. The first winery, Palagio, had a fabulous, friendly, audible guide who instructed us through the whole tour. This place provided quite a good amount of wine to taste in your glass which keeps getting refilled as you taste the various wines. They provided cheese and olive oil with cracker bread which was so good. We drove 30 minutes to the second winery and were toured by a kind, more gentle tour guide which didn't seem to keep people's attention as well but the wine was good, with less in the glass but I didn't mind that considering the generous amount I already had, and we were provided with some fennel flavoured crackers. A short drive from there to Greve, we walked to the "square" and bought a bit of food and coffee at Pasticceria Chianti which was decently priced. Back on the bus we had a nice and quiet one hour drive home in the dark. I thought it might have been good to start the tour earlier so we can drive home in a bit of light, but after the wine, everyone was good to chill. The driver is incredibly skilled, wow! Thank you for a very good tour.
Did not realize when I booked this that this would be an enormous group tour. There were 60 people on a big bus and we drove to 2 pretty mediocre wineries, and it was pretty chaotic with such a large group. Would definitely not do this again.
We are very sorry to read that you have not enjoyed the tour. We go to some of the most beautiful wineries we have in the Chianti area, in authentic tuscan style and surrounded by the notorious greenery. Here we sample some of the wines they produce themselves for letting our customers live a lovely experience, far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Apart from that the price includes the roundtrip transport and the assitance of a tour leader during the whole tour, considering all this we believe it is a good compromise.
However, just so everybody knows, we also have the private tours department that is very active.
We are always happy to customize the clients' experience and organize tours for smaller groups, families, solo travellers, you just need to pick what is the best option for you.
We hope that you will come back to Tuscany and will be contacting us so that we can organize a nice day for you!
The tour is very nice. We stop at 2 different wine tasting. One place offers 3 different kind of wine and the second place also has 3 different of wine. Tour guide is on time and very good.
We had a wonderful time on this tour. It started 20 minutes later than expected and got back an hour late so make sure you have plenty of time! The two winery’s were so nice and despite having on and off rain that day the tour was still amazing! Would do it again!
This was a joke, 64 people crammed into two small tasting rooms, you were hurried through the tastings, and the tour guide for trip, admitted he knew nothing about wine. Total waste of an afternoon and money. Too many other good wine tour choices - stay way from this one.
