Amazing! Our guide was fantastic, she even got us a private wine tasting so we didn't need to wait for the rest of the excursion because just a few of us booked the dinner which was superb! I highly recommend it and make sure you book with dinner and with steak!
Definitely a must do when in Tuscany. The wineries were nice and the dinner was in a very small town. Food was good, however I would recommend that you get the beef/steak dinner.
A perfect tour that from Florence. We visited 3 magical Tuscan villages and 2 wineries. Our tour guide Barbara was knowledgeable, spoke perfect English and took an active interest in everyone's welfare. At Poggio Amorilli, Barbara arranged for a separate wine tasting. Dinner and setting was sublime.
Absolutely awesome tour!
Loved the wines, the beautiful scenery, knowledgeable tour-guide and the dinner!
Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!
Everything was excellent. From the wine tasting to the visit of the villages. Highly recommend it.

Worth every penny, our guide was great, the wineries were amazing, I would absolutely recommend doing the dinner. We went to a restaurant in Chianti that had received a Michelin star for 10 straight years and the food was better than any other food I ate while in Italy. Great experience.
Another fantastic day in Italy. Not crazy about bus rides - motor coach - but I wouldn't want to attempt driving my self. We visited two wineries whose approach to the tour was very different. The first more informative if you are really interested in the making of the wine and the second more fun. The dinner afterwards was fantastic but be prepared to do some uphill walking. Again, would have loved more time in the small villages. I think the joist of this trip has been that you get a wonderful taste and want to stay for another monthOur guide, Barbara, greatest.
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.
Excellent trip. Knowledgable guide. Enjoyable tour and tasting at vineyard. Dinner very tasty especially the steak which was too big to finish.
Great way to get out of the hustle of the city center of Firenze and into the country side! Food and wine were great, as was our wine-farm host
This tour was by far 1 of my top favorites if not thee favorite! Great way to see Tuscany. Chianti was fabulous with great wine tasting along with cheese, bread, olive oil and jam tastings. Afterward I can pretty much say we all bought multiple items to take home (airlines usually allow 2 bottles of wine per suitcase or they give you the option to ship items home too). We stopped along the way in great little quaint towns where we had additional time to shop, take pictures and drink more wine. Lastly, we finished off at a cute cottage like tuscany restaurant where we drank more wonderful wine and plenty of food to go around. Overall we were very pleased with this tour. I will note that the roads are very windy so keep in mind if you might get bus sick. Also bring mosquito spray!
A thoroughly enjoyed half day tour that I would gladly do again. We visited a beautiful winery where we were welcomed by a lovely lady that showed us their property which was once a castle, created into a farmhouse. A very knowledgable guide who informed us everything about wine. Then we sat down and enjoyed 3 different wines with a selection of cured meats, cheeses and breads. It was a really good idea to put each wine with a selected piece of food in order to appreciate both things more. Everyone was so impressed, that each person bought something at the winery! We travelled to Greve and Castellina, spending 40 minutes in each Chianti village for free time, before arriving to a small town for our 3 course meal. The food did not disappoint, each meal was delicious and impressive. The two pasta dishes were amazing, and the main course included multiple side dishes too. Dessert was a yummy tiramisu. Would definetely reccommend this tour for anyone wanting to spend time in the Chianti region and learn about the delicious wines. Thank you Viator and CAF tours for organising a great tour!
What a brilliant day out!! From the views you get to see travelling from one place to another, to the wonderful little villages you get to visit, it was fantastic. The wine tour around the castle was extremely enjoyable and informative and the wine tasting was of course wondeful.
I would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys wine and wants to see the beautiful countryside of Tuscany!
Booked this tour months in advance and was not disappointed. Everything was perfect and together with a coach load of people from Aberdeen to Adelaide my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
The guide was excellent and very informative and the format of the trip well designed and conducted at a pace suitable for all age groups.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip to anyone who has an interest in Italian wine, countryside, food and culture in general.
