This was money well spent. Even though our driver spoke limited English, he was able to communicate points of interest along the drive to Tuscany. He made a point to stop at a small town on our way back as we had some extra time, and was kind enough to point us in the direction of the best treats there! The wine tasting was excellent and the staff at the vineyard were passionate, informative and kind. It was beautiful and was THE highlight of our time in Florence.

I cannot say enough about this tour and our guide Luciano. We arranged for pickup at our villa outside of Florence for a small additional fee. Luciano brought a great balance of history, humor and love for Italy that was contagious. The wine tasting was fun and Luciano brought us to the beautiful town, Greve in Chianti, the center of the Chianti region and arranged dinner at a fabulous restaurant. This was one of the highlights of the trip to Italy.

Where do I start-Marzio our guide was absolutely amazing. We knew it was going to be amazing when he started out with my family is 7 generations Florentine We cannot say enough about the tour we had. We can say that it wouldnt have been the same without Marzio. If you have the ability to ask for a specific guide we highly recommend Marzio. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

From the minute Marzio picked us up at our apartment in Florence, we began our lessons on the history and people of not only Florence, his native city, but the rest of Tuscany as well. We have been to Florence many times, but we actually learned quite a bit that we didn't know on this tour. Marzio speaks excellent English and is very entertaining - it seemed as though a friend was driving us around, showing us his countryside. The wine tasting itself was wonderful, too - we thoroughly enjoyed the lessons on Chianti wines and olive oils and tasting those delicious products as well as having the chance to order bottles to be shipped home. This is a wonderful excursion and very well worth the extra cost. Highly recommended!

Our private tour was amazing! Our guide, Alejandro was excellent. He spoke great English and provided us wonderful information and background throughout the tour. We booked the tour with only a couple days notice and it was on a Sunday yet VIATOR organized a personal tour of one of the wineries still (most are closed on Sundays). We got a tour from the actual wine maker where we started with a few white wines, did the tour, and then sat down (outdoors) for more wine, cheese, and meats. The dinner at La Tappas was fabulous. Would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get outside of downtown Florence and truly experience some of the Tuscan region!

This was a last min booking. We were in Florence and thought it would be great to get out into the countryside for the day, and my husband did not want to rent a car! So, the night before we're looking online for a tour, of course everything was booked up, and then we came across this tour. It was a little more than we wanted to spend, but we thought why not, and boy am I glad we did. We were met at our hotel, right on time, in a beautiful clean, comfortable car by our driver, Guido Laschi. I cannot say enough great things about him, his English was impeccable, he was knowledgeable about the area, he showed us things that we would have never found on our own, it was like touring around with an old friend, he even made dinner reservations for us at a restaurant we had been dying to eat at, but unable to get reservations for. He definitely made our trip, and the money we spent worthwhile.

Our driver was English speaking (from the UK). He picked us up at our hotel in a beautiful Jag. We tasted wonderful Chianti region wines at a very small winery. They also served us cheese and bread and showed us where the wine and olive oil is made. We then drove to a small town for coffee and to window shop. It was very romantic.

This was by far our favorite tour. Our winery hostess, Nadia, was not only informative but very entertaining with her personal stories of working in the wine and grape business. We had so much fun learning about Classico Chianti and tasting the winery's selection. Our dinner at La Toppa in San Donato was also delicious. The setting, hospitality, and weather were everything you can image for this region of Italy. This tour is a great break from the hectic cities of Florence and Rome.
