We had a brilliant time. Our guide Matthew was knowledgable and extremely helpful. The two wineries we visited were lovely and the lunch afterward was some of the best food we and #39;ve tasted. Also had good company with the other couple that joined us. All in all was an unforgettable experience

What a wonderful experience. We were the only 2 on the trip so essentially it was a private tour. Matteo was a fabulous guide, very knowledgeable in the area and about wines. We were first brought to Castello Vicchiomaggio where we were given a tour we actually saw the owner of the winery! and had a nice lesson from Matteo on the nuances of Chianti wines, then it was off to Nozzole Winery, where again, it was a private tour through the winery with a wine tasting of 2 of their Chiantis and the evening ended with a dinner at the Castello San Polo where we had dinner in a mediaeval castle. There was a super full moon of the Tuscany hillside. No better way to celebrate my birthday. Even if you don't like wines, I would highly suggest this tour.

What a wonderful tour! We were a very small group and Serena was our guide. She was spectacular! She was overflowing with information and patiently answered all of our questions. She was so passionate about her job and it really reflected on how she cared for us throughout the day. The ride up to the winery while bumpy was beautiful. The dinner was excellent and of course the wine tastings were outstanding. Not to mention all that you learn about the grape harvesting, the wine making processes and of course selecting a true Chianti in the Tuscan region. I felt like an expert when the evening was over. I would highly recommend this tour. Be sure to ask for Serena. She really made the day even better.

Great tour! We visited three wineries and had a nice dinner at the last one. Our tour guide Matteo was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the wine making process and answered all of our questions. We had a very nice bus driver, Elisio, he also knew a lot about the wineries and area. I highly recommend this tour! Make sure you bring your camera because you will have opportunities for some really nice photos!

What an amazing way to spend an afternoon. We went in the evening, departing at 3 p.m., and had a phenomenal time thanks largely to the excellent information from - and personality of - Serena. We stopped at multiple Vineyards, spoke in great detail about Chianti Classico and other reds. Easy and fun.

Vallerio was our awesome tour guide for the wine tour around Tuscany. This tour was so much fun, how could it not be with wine tastings starting at 10:30 in the morning! We toured three different wineries all very unique from each other and had a nice variety of tastings. Lunch was very good as well and Vallerio was very knowledgable on wines and on the area and was an all around nice guy to be with for a few hours. The bus ride was great as well and we saw a lot of interesting countryside with lots of photo opportunites. By far, this was our favourite tour while in Italy!
