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.
Had a great time!

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!
