Simone our guide was fantastic. As he had a degree in viniculture, we was great in sharing his knowledge about the Chianti area and the winemaking of the region. After the ride, we had a lovely wine tasting at an organic self sufficient farm, and then onto lunch at a former winery. Overall a great day out and well worth it.
This tour was amazing! I would recommend it to anyone traveling to the area. The horseback riding was peaceful and the most beautiful views of Chianti. Wine was fantastic and so was the food (my favorite from all Italy). Eliseo, our tour guide, really made the expierence complete. He was awesome!
Enjoyed the horseback riding. Three guides were provided, one at the front of the line, one in the middle, and one at the end. The trail took us along the side of some grape vineyards and then through some olive orchards. There was a section where the trail took us up a hill, but as a first time rider, I felt very safe with the guides coaching us along the way. Recommend the morning ride as it gets quite warm. The only thing missing was an opportunity to take photos of the beautiful views during the ride. Next stop was at an organic chianti producer. Beautiful views. If it were up to me, Id eliminate this piece in favor of more time at the stables or at lunch. End of the trip was lunch at a castle. The food was absolutely awesome, simple foods but sooo good. Got to sample a number of olive oils and balsamic vineyards. Wonderful setting. Our guide Valerio was excellent.
Loved this. We went riding first, then to s vineyard for a quick glass of wine and pictures, then to another vineyard for a tour and lunch. Our guide Daniele was very friendly and knowledgable. It was a great way to do something different in Tuscanny.
I want to take this tour every day. The tour guides were amazing and helpful, the horses were beautiful, and the views were out of this world. Some of the best parts were just drinking wine and having great conversations with the group and guide. And dinner was just fantastic. Absolutely loved it!
My boyfriend and I had an amazing time on this tour with our guide, Serena. We met the group 5 total, plus our guide at the tour office, easy to find. We took a beautiful van ride up to the Chianti region to the horse ranch, and rode for about an hour. Everyone was very fun, professional, and helped put my first-time-horseback-riding boyfriend at ease. The ride had amazing views, and the horses were all friendly and easy to ride. Serena took us to a cute little vineyard to describe the wine-making process. She is incredibly knowledgable - a sommelier who really knows her stuff! Next, we went to the castle where we were treated to a delicious home-cooked meal and wine tastings from the vineyards we had visited. Overall an excellent experience, and one of our favorite excursions of the trip! I can't recommend Serena and this tour enough :
Great tour, really enjoyed the small group size and the very friendly guide. The horse riding was a lot of fun, had riders of all levels and ages and everyone enjoyed it. Great scenery and perfect weather topped off with a lovely meal! Highlight of our trip of Italy.
This was a fun and beautiful trip into wine country. Riding horses through the vineyards was very picturesque and our guide, Serena, was very knowledgeable about wines and the region.
Excellent all around - our driver / assistant was a lovely, personable young woman. The ride itself was great - all that gorgeous Tuscan countryside. The dinner was great. Only complaint - they skimped on the wine.

This tour was absolutely the best! We were a small group, guided by the best tour guide we've ever had, Eliseo. The horse riding in Chianti was a unique way to see the beauty of the countryside. We then went to a small, family owned winery, followed by a great lunch with the most beautiful scenery ever! We did this tour on our last day in Italy and it was such a wonderful way to end a great trip. I would give this tour and this tour guide more than five stars, if that were possible!
Tour guide was awesome and the activities were so much fun! Probably one of my favorite days in Italy. Definitely recommend this tour!
What an amazing day, the staff were excellent in particular Christian our driver who was attentive and a great host.
If you do go on this tour try to go on a Saturday. Then you get to visit Misha's farm. I really think that the tour operator should have a new tour an afternoon with Misha. I know that I would sign up in an instant!
great tour good horses, nice guide and great lunch good value for money

Detox from the crowds and hustle and bustle. If you have ridden horses in Mexico, this will stun you with the difference. The horses are beautiful and clean. They know where to go and what to do. Just relax and enjoy the scenery. Olive trees and vineyards make for a postcard ride. Enjoy the ride. Not for children. Great winery tour and lunch. DO this last on your Florence trip as a reward to yourselves. Oh and remember that Max the dog is really in charge.
We had the most amazing time! Our guide Francesco was excellent - so knowledgeable and happy to answer questions and help. We virtually had a private tour because there was only the two of us. We would use this tour company again if we were in Florence.
By far one of the highlights of my trip to Italy. This was a great experience and lots of fun.
This was an amazing experience. There was a little bit of delay right at the beginning but I guess that was also because of the group. The horse riding was a very lovely experience and it was enjoyable by the whole group. The wine tasting was also good but we would have liked a few more varieties to try out. The dinner was very good but maybe a few more varieties would be better appreciated.
This was a great trip.our guide,Franchesco, spoke great English and was very knowledgeable about the region. I am glad we sat in the front seat because the van was not equipped with a microphone or speakers and the people in the back seat had a harder time hearing what he was saying.
the tour was very enjoyable. We had an excellent guide, the horseback riding was fun, the winery tasting was good and the lunch was delicious.
our guide was fantastic. Debbie her name was. informative and fun. our horses were great and well behaved. the dinner at the winery was excellent.and our guide was very knowledgeable, I forgot his name but he was funny and friendly. the whole day was well woth it. I would've like a bit more time for dinner so we could've had time to digest and enjoy a little more relaxation before we went back, but it was great none the less.
Loved every second of this tour, just do it!! This was the highlight of our trip to Florence, in fact it was the highlight of our trip to 9 different countries!!
this trip was cancelled due to the weather but it was arranged for another day and was pleased it was as it was a great day out.
Do it!! We had a great time. My daughter said It was a perfect day. So much fun, very professionally run, the horses were beautiful, the food during the lunch was fabulous, the farmhouse beautiful, the people were gracious and lovely and lastly our tour guide Eduardo was so funny and sweet. Just fantastic. We would do it again and have been telling everyone we know about it. The only thing I wish was that we had a wine tasting available if we wanted it at the Ruffino vineyard. But that is really stretching to find something not perfect about this tour or our day!
