Traveler Tips


Make sure you know exactly where to meet the bus as it wasn't where Google Maps originally indicated, its a bit behind the train station.
Finding the meeting point was a bit tough - read the instructions carefully!
I would bring a snack as the food is light and the glasses are heavy.

Brianna_D, Jul 2022
Wonderful half day wine tasting trip! Easy instructions for getting to the meeting spot, organized check in process, and our guides (Rafael & Alexandra) were knowledgeable and entertaining! Rafael was also a great photographer for everyone at the vineyards. This tour is a great value - visited two vineyards and sampled 4 wines at each, along with some bread, olive oil, and cheeses. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to enjoy the beauty of Tuscany with some delicious wine!
This was a fantastic...

Daniele
Peter_I, Jun 2022
The Tuscan countryside was breathtaking and each vineyard that we visited had informative and friendly staff that made the experience great. The wine that we tasted was delicious but our tour guide Daniele was the star of the show. Right from the start he was funny and so upbeat that it would make anyone smile. He was delighted to share all the interesting details about the Chianti region and you could tell how passionate he was about the process of making wine. Big thanks to Daniele, you’re the man!
Just another tourist
Aditi_D, Jun 2022
Unfortunately we did not make the trip so cannot review it. However the communication of the group was poor. My partner fell ill the night before and they declined refunding us, which made sense. But when I asked if we could reschedule to another day they stopped answering, despite multiple attempts to contact them. We felt like the communication was poor and the group was not willing to work with us.
Beautiful
Richard_L, Jun 2022
Country scenery was the best part. The first vineyard was the best by far. Much more tasteful wine and food.
Wonderful day!
Lori_K, Jun 2022
Guide was fantastic. Group size was perfect, not too large. Our group were the only people at each winery and we were given great service and attention. The wines and food were fabulous.
Wonderful half day Tuscan winery trip
Leigh_O, Jun 2022
This was a wonderful way to see Tuscany in a half day. We thoroughly enjoyed both wineries! Stefani was an entertaining driver for the 40 minute drive to wineries and the hosts at the wineries provided I sight into their wine making processes. We recommend!

Tuscany Wine Tour
Erica_S, Jun 2022
This experience exceeded our expectations. I mean … I don’t even drink wine and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I booked this experience for my girlfriend who loves wine and clearly, she had a blast. We were nothing but smiles the whole time enjoying meeting people from all over, tasting the wines and the breads with meats and olive oils and taking in the breathtaking views. 💯 # check it out. Oh! The staff is wonderful too.
THIS TOUR IS A MUST!!!
courtney_b, Jun 2022
a group of friends and I were studying abroad from the States and we wanted to get the Italian wine experience, but we only had half a day! Chianti is the BEST and we snatched this tour up when we could. Raffaelle was the most informative and kind tour guide! Our winery visits exceeded expectations, and we learned so many interesting things about wine production. We also made so many friends on the tour:) If you are looking to try some of Italy's finest wines with Italy's finest company this is the trip for you!!!!
Good experience in Florence
Stephen_N, Jun 2022
This was a great way to see the countryside and vineyards of Tuscany. Beautiful scenery and nice atmosphere at the vineyard. I definitely recommend this tour.
DO NOT BOOK!!!
Laura_s, Jun 2022
This is an expensive trip with a terrible tour operation. Be aware the meeting place is in the middle of nowhere. Felt very unsafe. Twenty euro cab ride from center of Florence or a 45 minute walk through awful areas. If you try to call your operator and do not speak Italian they simply hang up on you. Never again! Too many great experiences in Florence to deal with this!

Barbara_E, Jun 2022
The estate, view, tasting room (and formal garden!) at Poggio Torcelli were fantastic! And the food and wine experience at second winery was delightful and we learned a lot! Really enjoyed the experience.

Terrific experience. Well organized, very good wine, nice vineyards and locations. Guide was friendly and informed.
Great trip to Tuscan countryside
Leigh_C, Jun 2022
Loved seeing the Tuscan countryside as a break from downtown Florence. Great to see two different winery styles. Brought teenage boys and they enjoyed it as well.
Very worthwhile
Alex_B, Jun 2022
Our tour guide was very friendly, the group was a great size (25ish people) and the length and itinerary was perfect. Great way to spend half a day in Florence.
One of the best tours of our trip
Laura_B, Jun 2022
This was one of my families favorite tour of our trip. We took a bus to two wineries. The wine and food and sceneries were amazing! The olive oil and balsamic at Montecchio are the best we have had - my entire family bought these in addition to wine. We tried to buy more wine when we got home and found out that it wasn’t available - only purchases while there - so, make sure you buy while there! Plus, we met people from all over the world during our wine tasting!
