Best tour of the entire trip. Had no idea what to expect out in the country. Siena was a beautiful old town with a round city square. A stop by Monteriggioni for lunch was fun. The drive through Tuscany was filled with beauty. Highly recommend this private tour so you can spend the time you want along the way!
Our driver Alessandro was outstanding!! He was so knowledgeable about the region and especially the wine. In addition to our visits Siena and San Gimignano, he helped us pick a great winery for lunch.and was able to squeeze in another winery stop for a tasting on our way back to Florence. He also took us on a backroads tour through the Chianti Classico area so we really were able to see and appreciate the amazing area rather than just driving in and out of a winery.
Alex was amazing, nice, very easy going person. He made you feel right at home providing all the information you needed. It was a nice trip away from the big city. Definitely would do it again especially with Alex as the guide!
This was the perfect experience. Our guide, Alex, was engaging, informative, and focused on meeting our specific interests for our tour of the Chianti region surrounding Florence. He chose beautiful and off-the-beaten path villages and wineries which were marvelous.
We had the most wonderful day with Alex touring the countryside. We like to avoid the crowds so Alex tailored our tour to see more of the countryside and small midevil villages. He also took us to a small vineyard where everything is organic. We had a private lunch with the most wonderful wines and balsalmic. The day could not have been better. Alex was very knowledgable about the wines/vineyards and countryside so we learned a lot. We took several private tours and while they were all very good, this one was by far our favorite. Thanks so much Alex for a great day!
The best lunch we had in 3 weeks! Alessandro gave us a couple of options we choose farmhouse lunch and winery. This was best experience ever. He did a great job explaining the region and very accommodating. We didn't leave much time for San Gimignano, but loved Sienna
Alessandro was the perfect guide for this region - not only was he knowledgeable about the area, but also VERY knowledgeable about wine and food so we foodies ourselves were able to have really interesting conversations about the region, terroir, locavorean trends, the wine business, mushrooms, cheese, how the area and customs compare to our in California, food recommendations in Florence including the market and the best trippa cart... a foodie soulmate! This also led to his fantastic recommendation of a small production winery high up in the Chianti mountains which also made amazing balsamic vinegar, olive oil, pork products, honey and more for a delicious and leisurely lunch and tasting. We toured the grounds, met their boars and peacocks, saw the apiary and toured the cellars where we learned about vinegar and olive oil production, the house and its owner who stopped by to chat during lunch.
Near the end of the day when we were heading back North, Alessandro also asked if we were up for visiting one more winery, and despite some unexpected traffic he was able to ask them to stay open for us and we had our own private tasting there. And yet that still didn't completely wrap up the day he took some nice side roads to avoid the highway traffic so we got to see more of countryside at twilght, and even stopped up at Michelangelo Square overlooking Florence after dark since we hadn't been up there before. Absolutely stunning day and we would unequivocally recommend that you ask for Alessandro specifically to take you to the wine country.
