This was beyond amazing!! Chiara went above and beyond to make our tour special. We came here on our honeymoon and shared the tour with one other couple, so it was very intimate. Chiara was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of background on Florence, wine, and history on our ride there. We made a few stops along the way to probably the cutest little towns we've ever seen!

The wine tasting itself was incredible! The owner is great and gave us a tour of his vineyard and explained how he produced olive oil and wine. We then sampled the olive oil and 5 wines along with cheese and cold cuts specifically paired to the wines. I was stunned at how delicious the olive oil was, and we almost took a bottle home! Highly recommend this tour!!

Had a wonderful and relaxing time away from the crowds in Florence? Loved every minute of the drive to the winery where we were told about the area and wines. We are not red wine drinkers but enjoyed the tasting on the veranda watching the sun set

Our guide was friendly and accommodating. She made sure we caught the sunset along the way at a great vantage point along the way. The vineyard we visited was a very small family run business with delicious snacks that complimented the wine. My friends bought and shipped several bottles home to enjoy later. Greve is charming and we could have spent more time wandering the main piazza. But theres never enough time on vacation.

There were 7 family members so we had the van to ourselves. It was a great experience, very relaxing and enjoyable. The stops along the way to the winery were just as interesting as the wine tasting. Wouldn't have changed a thing.

High recommended!!!!! Great driver who gave us a lot of details while taking us to different places. The stop before the vineyard was delicious and the vineyard was amazing!!! The family is super sweet and welcoming. The driver didn't rush us out even though it led to us going a half hour over.

This ended up being a private tour, as there were just the two of us. Our guide, Alessio, was very knowledgeable of the area, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Chianti vineyard/farm. Samuela of Altiero was a wonderful host who showed us around, and served up delicious jams, olive oil, cheeses, and meats to accompany the wine tasting. We were able to purchase the jams, oils, and wines to bring home. The views were incredible, and was definitely the highlight of our trip!

Mr Alessio is very knowledgeable about the wine, the history, the sights of the chianti classico area and he definitely know much more than just these. He is also very friendly and easily approachable. We can see his passion and professionalism during the entire trip. We wanted to have another trip with him but it's a regret we didn't have time.

The winery/farm also produces awesome wine and jam that are easily affordable, with beautiful scenery to offer.

The trip is very enjoyable and is definitely an eye opener for us. Highly recommended to everyone out there!

A wonderful tour with an extremely knowledgable guide. The Vineyard is beautiful and run by a lovely family, the olive oil and jams that they also produce are almost as good as the wine. It was nice way to get out of the city and see the beautiful tuscan villages.

We had two guides because one was new to this tour company. Both were pleasant, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable, and went out of their way to accommodate several special requests that our group had. A minor complaint is that when the driver spoke from the front seat while driving it was sometimes difficult to hear her. Also the tour should have started a little earlier because by the time we got to Greve after the wine-tasting it was very dark.

Really enjoyed our time at the Vinyard tasting wines and homemade jams. Would have enjoyed more time tasting at individual vineyards but did like seeing the the cute Tuscan towns.
