This was an amazing trip. It far exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Keiko she did an amazing job. We decided on this tour to add the dinner stop option. Do it, you will not regret it. Eating at an one star Michelin rated over 10 years in a row for this ratingrestaurant Antica Trattoria La Toppa was amazing an the setting on a hill top tiny village was beautiful. When booking this tour take the option for dinner and pre order the T-bone steak as that option I think it is only available in advance.

This was a amazing day and would do it all over again. The wine tasting experiences were great and informative, driving in the hills were beautiful.

For the price of this tour, it is totally worth it. We were able to see two towns in the Chianti region and visited two wineries as well. The wine tasting was great experience and we learned a lot from the somellier. The wines were good and pretty affordable compared to the Napa Valley wines. It was amazing to be able to see Tuscany and the vineyards. Just a truly great experience. It was all worth it.

The wineries were very good, particularly the second one. The tour guide was okay but didn't seem to have much energy for what she was showing us. Beautiful countryside would love to go back.

When I signed up for a wine tour, I expected an actual wine tour. Instead, the first stop we got two tastes of 4 different wines, learned nothing of the wine process and got maybe 10 minutes to”tour” the vineyard, aka - walk outside and try a grape. The second stop was at a very small town where we were told we had 30 minutes free time. The tour guide told us very little about the town and made no suggestions as to what to see during our 30 minutes. Most of the places were closed. The 3rd stop, Poggio Amorelli, was great! We actually learned a good deal about the wine process and the vineyard host did a great job of telling us all about the wines and balsamic vinegars we tasted. I did enjoy this stop. The last stop was another town which was better than the first. There was a bit more to see. If you’re looking for a “wine tour”, this is not it. I would not recommend this tour.

The stops for eating and shopping were not long enough, traveling with elder disabled and was disregarded when taken to Greve for a long walk uphill to be quickly returned to bus.

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

Great tour for those who want to experience a short wine tasting tour and visit beautiful Chianti. You visit 2 wineries and 2 small Chianti towns. Had a great time!

Was well worth it to see Florence from a whole new angle.

You can't go to Florence without seeing its rural side! and this half day tour is the best way to do so if you have limited time in the city. The views are spectacular, the tasting is fun and educational, and the wine is great!

I can't believe so many people rated this tour as highly as they did. The tour started on time at 115 in a bus that was air conditioned. This AC did not work well enough for the beginning of July. Everyone on the bus was miserable and we were honestly worried about some of the older people on the bus with how hot it was. We had multiple stops with 30 minutes rides between each location on this hot bus. The first stop, we did a quick tasting and they didn't even let us buy a glass of wine, case or even walk around. We were basically herded in and out of the tour just to get to the next location. The wine was good and we would have liked to buy a glass. Then we had another 30 minute drive to the next location. They then dropped us off at a square and said, you have a free 30 minutes to do whatever. We went and bought a glass of wine on our own since we were supposed to be wine tasting - others grabbed food, but everyone wanted to go to another winery. We then all got back on the bus for another 30 minute ride to a true winery. We actually did a fun tasting, were allowed to buy a glass of wine and bottles to ship home. THIS WAS THE ONLY GOOD PART OF THE TOUR. We then got back on the bus, took a 30 minute drive again to another little town, walked around with zero end point, got BACK on the bus and drove to drop half of the group off for dinner and then close to an hour drive home for us. We didn't get back until 830PM without dinner or food. I would NEVER recommend this tour to anyone. There is easy ways to improve this tour- like actually just visit winerys and prepare everyone this is basically a full day tour. Good luck if you go. Especially in the summer.
