Guide was fantastic. Wine tasting was excellent and educational. And the dinner was excellent. All in all very good value for the money!
Only down side - the cork on the Chianti Classico that we got from the vineyard was so dry it crumbled as we were opening. Not the tour company issue but maybe you could provide feedback to the vineyard.
This tour was great! Everything we hoped for. We highly recommend it.
Excellent tour - we loved it.
The tour was well organized, on time. Titsiana our tour guide was great - a little crazy, and difficult to follow in her explanations - but great fun. Our guide at Il Palagio for the wine-tasting was especially informative. Best of all was the group of people, who felt like friends by the end of the evening.
Thank you very much.
We went on this tour with another couple and both of us enjoyed it! Keiko was our tour guide and thought she did a great job showing the region and allowing us to enjoy and learn a lot! It's a beautiful area! We definitely got to taste a lot of wine and eat of a lot of food! Only complaint was our bus' a/c wasn't working too well.

This tour was fantastic! We loved the tour and the whole experience. We were with a small group and there was plenty of wine and good food! Our tour guide was amazing and was happy to answer all of our questions.
This was the best day we spent in our 23 day Europe trip! The female tour guide wish I could recall her name ! gave a thorough explanation of every small area and local landmark on the bus ride...better than many other guides we had, and she was graceful, humorous and kind to all of us. Our winery experience had another fascinating guide who explained the various wines and aging process of each. I fully appreciated the education about one of my favorite beverages, as well as many plentiful samples with snacks to offset the flavor. The dinner in the village we went to was another bountiful experience, with ample portions and wonderful table companions. We also did siteseeing and shopping in two other villages. What a wonderful, memorable time we spent!
Best day spent out of the 23 we spent in 5 countries in Europe! Bus tour guide was thorough with local landmarks and local history, graceful and humorous. Winery guide fully explained the preparation of various wines and conditions that affect them and shared 4 wines and snacks with us to compliment the flavors. Dinner restaurant provided meals customized choices given and order placed earlier in ride, ample portions and wonderful table companions. Other two villages we visited were charming and cozy views of local life and small shops with trinkets to purchase, not usually offered in larger tours.
Brilliant tour, could not recommend this more highly. Beautiful scenery, well organised and great value for money for the amount of delicious food and drink you get on the trip. Would 100 go again. Thank you for having us
This trip was everything that it promised - lots of free wine, delicious snacks and dinner, nice tour guide, and a great overall time. Price is a great value (restaurant we went to was Michelin star rated) and did I mention tons of wine? Just go, you won't regret this!
I do highly recommend this trip, though some aspects of it satisfy more than others. It's a great way to get out of Florence and into the countryside if you don't want to rent a car and brave Italy's winding byways. Our guide, Lucia, was informative and friendly, and the winery stop offers not just a tasting but a sit-down lunch of sorts with full bottles of four wines on the tables and excellent small eats cheese, bread, salamis. You get brief stops at Greve and Castellini, and that's my one complaint--these stops are really so brief as to be quick bathroom breaks or a dash into one souvenir shop. Also, we found the dinner rather underwhelming. That said, I'd recommend it--it's not expensive, and you do get plenty of wine and food for your money. The scenery, more importantly, is breathtaking.
