We don't really know a lot about Italian wines, but we knew enough to want to go Tuscany and get a first-hand experience. The title says
Was well worth it to see Florence from a whole new angle.
Had a really great day on the wine tour, visited a couple of lovely vineyards and a picturesque small town. I went along as a single traveler and really enjoyed the day, you soon get talking with others after a couple of wines. The tastings are pretty small but you can also buy an extra glass of wine at each vineyard if you wish. Great way to see the countryside.
We went on a tour with Eugenia. She was extremely knowledgeable and provided so much information. She was even able to answer some unrelated questions about the local vegetation. Very impressive.
We toured two wineries. The first one was small and quaint. (The wine was priced cheaper at this one!) The other was much larger. Both beautiful and provided really great tastings.
There were two stops in the middle of the tour in two small towns. The stops were very short. Be sure to have lunch prior to the tour!
Overall, well worth the money. Beautiful views that we wouldn’t have been able see otherwise. It was about an hour drive from Florence to the wineries. And our tour was amazing. She was so approachable and knowledgeable. She even walked us to catch a taxi after the tour was over. We had a great experience!
This is a good value half day tour as we had a good 7 hours. Both of the wineries were great. The second one was made even more enjoyable by our host, Jean Luigi who kept us well entertained. The bites of local produce were also well done. There wasn’t much at the two places we stopped and you certainly don’t get much time to explore but it was nice to stretch the legs. Kudos to the coach driver for getting around some of those turns! Met some nice friendly people and the host was informative without overdoing it. Would recommend if you want to dabble your toes into Chianti
This was one of our favorite experiences while staying in Florence! The tour was excellent and the sights were amazing! Definitely recommend this!

My husband and I were very happy with the tour company. The driver and guide was fantastic. We never felt rushed and yet we got to see a lot more than we expected.
Pretty fun tour. The guide was funny, and we definitely got to explore Tuscany. We went to two wineries, both were super fun, and we saw two charming towns. Great taste of Tuscany.
Kind of late by 2 years, but this was a wonderful tour of a few wineries.... the view is amazing once you leave Florence.. it was more then a half of day.. almost an entire day.. had alot of fun tasting and purchasing wine...
Great day. Our first wine tour was at Poggio Amorelli, it was awesome. The second tour was at Risecolli. Villages of Castellina in Chianti and Greve in Chianti were visited. You only have a short time for visiting these villages.
Please be aware if you are thinking of shipping wines to Ontario... Firstly, to Canada, we had to purchase 6 bottles of wine. We knew there would be some duty to pay. For personal reasons, we were unable to carry bottles that would be exempt of duty or only approximately 40 customs duty when declared upon entering Canada. Upon receiving notifications of shipping and customs information, we were surprised in the extra to be paid. The LCBO charge is 102.2 of the receipt which you have to send to the brokerage company, plus 50 brokerage fee, plus HST.
