We had a great time horseback riding through the vineyards of Tuscany and our wine cellar and dinner tour. The sun setting over the mountains while on horseback in the vineyards was spectacular and worth the trip alone. Matteo ?,our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We would highly recommend this tour.
Great,relaxing tour. Our guide was informative,and the country side beautiful!
A very unique way to experience the Tuscan countryside. Really enjoyed the views and our guides were very knowledgeable and nice. The only thing I would have changed ,and I understand safety and the experience of the group comes into play, is that I would have loved to have done a little more than just a very slow walk on the horses. All in all a great experience and I would do it again!
This experience can't be beat! Horseback riding in Tuscany followed by a vineyard tour and lunch with wine at a beautiful ranch. Giuseppe, our tour guide was fantastic! Pickup was easy, we met our group in the city center, and then we took a van to the countryside. Highly recommended.
A fabulous way to spend a beautiful morning or afternoon! We rode along wide trails in the national park after being fully briefed by both our driver, Juan, and our guide, Alex. Alex had us practice everything we'd need to know in the arena before heading out on the trail, and both he and Juan made sure we had plenty of photos of our memorable morning. Brushing the horses before and after our ride was relaxing for all, and the Spanish omelette Juan prepared for lunch while we were out was delish! So was the Spanish tomato toast he taught us to make. The horses were both beautiful and well behaved. This is a very well run outfit - a great mix of professional and relaxed attitudes ensures that riders of all abilities are catered for and have wonderful experience!
This was one of my favorite days in the Florence area. In fact, after this tour I wished that we had stayed outside of Florence more, or maybe as a home base. Anyways, the tour itself was great. The horses, you could tell, were very well taken care of, healthy and happy and well behaved. The views were amazing. It was great being driven around the narrow and rolling hills, where we visited two vineyards and had a wonderful lunch on a lovely terrace. Vegetarian friendly too! The only thing that would have made this trip better is if we had the chance to taste and buy wines at the first winery.
This was a great little tour - lunch and the winery were both good and it was nice to get out into the open on horseback. Different and fun way to see a bit more of the chianti region!
A great tour... Eliseo our guide for the day was wonderful and fun to be around. He was also very knowledgeable about the local area. The women that led the trail ride spoke between themselves almost the entire ride but the beautiful views made up for that.
Loved It! The country was beautiful and lunch was great the driver was very nice. It was something different.
This was an amazing tour!!! I had been to Florence 4 times before and wanted to see things outside the city. The horse back riding was nice. Our tour guide wasn't allowed to go with us so the gals that took us did not speak english very well. In fact, they spoke to each other in Italian during most of our ride. They took us to see olive trees and through a vineyard. The scenery was great and the horse seemed really nice - I hadn't been on a horse in over 10 years!! I don't like a lot of wines so I tried a couple and then called it quits. The lunch was really nice. Our tour guide was wonderful - Daniella - thanks
Eliseo was a very good guide, accommodating and was nice enough to track me down and return my sunglasses. Only issue was did not get to visit a winery.
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!
