O passeio foi ótimo! A visita às cidadezinhas e à vinicola do Sr Mario em Montalcino foi bem legal! A degustação é bem servida tanto de vinho quanto de queijos, além de escutar o Sr. Mario que é muito engraçado! Nossa guia brasileira Lilian foi DEZ! Super simpática e preocupada com a gente! A outra visita à uma adega subterrânea em Montepulciano também foi legal com degustação de vinhos nobres e queijos. No passeio não está incluído almoço, mas se come bastante nestas visitas e ainda tem tempo em uma das cidades para passeios a pé e almoço/lanche. Deixem para comprar vinho Brunelo de Montalcino e Nobile de Montepulciano nestas cidades por mais que em outros locais falem que eles vendem mais barato realmente é mais barato nas cidades de Montalcino e Montepulciano.
We took the tour with Duona and it we had a great time! The tour group was big.. probably about 25-30 people in a coach bus.The cities we visited were beautiful, and the wine tastings were fun. Perfect tour to take if you want to get to meet fellow travelers as well.
Positives: got to see 3 wonderful Tuscan towns and visited a legend of wine making in the region.
Negatives: super rushed, and the tour guide was not engaging - he was more like a bored chaperone than an actual guide. Everywhere we went, we had less than an hour to explore. I realize that we covered a lot of area, but this tour could have been designed a lot better and it was a shame that we didn't get much time to spend anywhere, nor had much time to grab a decent lunch.
Amazing trip and absolute money value. A long trip, but packed with interesting things to see and taste. We were really tired at the end, but really satisfied with beautiful Tuscany countryside, ancient towns and delicious wines.
Tour guide Edward was fantastic. He was super knowledgable, lively, and kind. We really enjoyed having him as our host for the tour. This trip was perfect for our needs. We only had a few days in Florence and really wanted to visit more of Tuscany. This trip allowed us to see Pienza, Montepulciano, and Montalcino. For those expecting to spend a long time in each of those towns, please note this is not the tour for you. Packing 3 towns into one day is a feat, one this tour covers well, but you will feel rushed. We had under an hour in Pienza, for example. The tours of the two wineries though, especially the on in Montalcino, made the tour. They were generous with the wine tastings and the accompanying food. And you learned a lot. I'd recommend this tour if you want to get a taste of Southern Tuscany accompanied with a guide who really knows his stuff!
Totalling 12 hours, this trip left us with exhausted smiles on our faces. Our guide Fabio was professional, run everything smoothly and had a good command of English. The towns we visited were beautiful and the local produce is excellent. And I will always smile when I remember the owner of the first winery, Mario.
