This is a must do. We had a wonderful tour guide - funny and informative! Experiencing what you have likely seen in the movies first hand is unreal. Tuscany is beautiful not to mention the wine of course. They gave us plenty to sample from and the last stop provided food as well at the sit down tasting.
I could not recommend this tour enough! Stefano took us to two absolutely beautiful wineries and also provided us with great commentary on our way there. The wineries themselves provided very generous tastings and also delicious olive oil tastings with bread cheese and salami. This was definitely a major highlight of our Italy trip, do not hesitate to book this trip it’s worth every penny.
While our visit to Florence we choose this tour to see the countryside and enjoy the wine tasting experience. It did not disappoint. The two wineries were wonderful and exceeded our expectation. The one small issue was finding the starting point and the bus. The directions could be clearer. If you are lookin* for a wonderful 1/2 day tour away from the city and enjoy wine...this tour is for you.
We absolutely loved the wine experience and highly recommend it. The group we had was great; our host (Guiseppe) was solid and we had an amazing time at both wineries. The grounds were absolutely amazing; the wine was wonderful and our guides at each location were both knowledgeable and personable. We would definitely recommend.
This was one of the best experiences during our 4 day stay in Florence. Quick bus ride with a small group - 10-15 people (mostly English speaking). We learned a lot, frank even more (7 glasses ?), tour guide was awesome and funny. I would bring a snack as the food is light and the glasses are heavy. I also would buy some of their wine / olive oil / balsamic to bring home. 5:5 review
Freddy was our guide and you can tell he really loves Florence and the surrounding history. We had a really nice 50ish minute drive from the departure point. However it seemed to go by quickly because of the facts and stories our guide shared during that drive. The first winery was beautiful, plenty of time for conversations with other tour participants and photos of course. Second winery actually included more in-depth tour of the barrels, and large metal vats used for aging. The properties both are STUNNING and I personally enjoyed the Florence countryside more so than the city, just my experience! If you like wine and different varieties of it, I have a hard time picturing you not enjoying the tour. We also ate nice cheeses and meats at location 2. Location 1 was just bread and balsamic vinegar. Because of the amount of wine you are set up to have, if you feel that you would need it I would recommend eating prior to the tour! Enjoy.
A perfect way to immerse oneself with Tuscan culture. A must-visit for wine lovers regardless of race. The tour guide's personal approach plus a hefty serving of wine ended with a party inside the coach. Our driver who resembles Rocky Balboa made sure that we had a safe travel back to the station.
