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.
