This was definitely a highlight of our time in Florence. Our guide, Mateo, was terrific. The whole day was very well organized and the wineries visited were very welcoming. The lunch was outstanding. Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful tour with our guide, Simone. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out many aspects of wine-making to us at the wineries. He kept us engaged and answered our questions, and was helpful and friendly. The visits to the wineries were very well organized and clear. The small-group format is excellent and I would highly recommend anyone interested in this tour or similar ones that visit wineries to consider the small-group format. The food served was excellent. We sampled several wines on our visit and were able to compare the different types of wines as well as understand how good quality wines should taste. The minivan we rode in was air conditioned and comfortable. The meeting point in Florence was close to Orsanmichele, very convenient. The tour was run very well. The restaurant was another treat - with a cellar and also a small gift shop.
This was a really enjoyable day out. Our guide Serena a sommelier was delightful, very knowledgeable on Chianti and obviously loved her work. With the resurgence in popularity of Rose' and Chianti in many countries it was interesting to learn a little more about the Chianti variety. The wines were outstanding and the three course lunch was plentiful and of a high quality. There is definitely no pressure to buy wines however we couldn't resist and are saving this bottle for a special occasion.
Great wine tasting! Learned a lot about wine and the region. I heard some negative feedback about the large group tours and was very happy we booked this one instead :
We had a great time! The tour guide was excellent--he knew his stuff about Chianti!
We had 2 Mateo's for guides. Both new the area and a lot about wine production. The 2 tastings were very well done and the Tuscan lunch was great
our small group tour was fantastic. good company. tour guide was great, friendly, informative. great locations visited, great wines and great food. an all round excellent experience.
Fantastic food and wine, lovely locations - Matteo was an excellent and informative guide.
Our wine tour with Serena was excellent ! She was very knowledgeable of the region and being a sommelier she had exceptional knowledge of the wines we tasted and how they differed. She was also fun to be with and kept things very interesting. The food on the tour was great for lunch. I would highly recommend the tour and Serena in particular! Thanks for a great time! Jonathan
Very entertaining. Not too long. Wonderful wines and staff. No heavy sales or hidden stops. Absolutely worth the money and we would take this tour again.
Our guide, Serena, was very knowledgeable. From the start it was obvious that she loved sharing her love of wine with others. The scenery was amazing. The meal at the end was amazing. Oh, did I mention the wine? The wine was amazing. We saw and learned so much about the wine-making process. I would highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic tour Marta our guide was amazing - friendly, informative and passionate about wine! One of the best tours I have been on. Thanks Marta
We loved this tour. Our guide Matteo was very knowledgeable and was also a sommelier so we knew we were getting the best information at all times. The wine was lovely and the tours of the vineyards were extra special. Lunch in the old cellar was lovely. Would definitely recommend if you have the time and want to see the Tuscan countryside.
Our guide Valentina was excellent and her helper Veronica was also very good.
We enjoyed our day very much and we recommend Valentina to anyone who wants an
excellent guide of the Duomo.

This tour was definitely worth the money. Our tour guide Mateo did a great job teaching us about the Chianti wine region and we explored some beautiful wineries. Overall, this was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Italy and we are looking forward to doing it again on our next visit.
This was a very enjoyable tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. the trip to the first winery included a stop along the road to see actual vineyard. Was not rushed at any of stops. Both wineries that we did tastings at were very very nice. The lunch included in the last stop was also the wine tasting which i thought was nice Food was authentic and delicious Wish it had even been longer. Highly recommend
The group was small, Damiano was engaging and very knowledgable, the countryside was beautiful and the wineries impressive- a wonderful day. I highly recommend the tour
Matteo was a fantastic tour guide and sommelier. Good mix of modern and ancient wine making methods with a delicious lunch. Put this one on your bucket list!
Really enjoyed this day. Our tour guide Christian was very knowledgeable and interesting. Since we were all Americans, he made a quick stop along the way to show us the U.S. Memorial cemetary dedicated to those who died during World War II it was a mini Arlington. Enjoyed the 2 wineries , one was an old style , the other newer. Lunch was good
Brilliant day. Excellent tour guide. Very informative and good value. Interesting wine tastings and very nice and generous lunch. The country side and scenery is stunning. Good value and highly recommended tour.
Very knowledgeable tour guide Mateo and a wonderful experience.
The best tour we went on in our visit to Rome, Florence and Venice. Absolutely fabulous.
