October was a beautiful time of year to visit this Tuscan region. The colors had changed but the days were still nice and sunny.
The owners of the vineyard gave the tour and had a good overall history of each vineyard. The olive oil pressing was very interesting and of course the wine tasting was wonderful! Our Viator driver and tour guide was knowledgeable and fun!

Absolutely incredible! Highly educational, perfect amount of people, and kept things moving on time. Both wineries were gorgeous, the wine and food were out of this world. I highly recommend this tour, you won't regret it!

This was a fantastic small group tour. Our bus driver was excellent and informed us a lot about the country side. By the way which is breathtaking. Our first wine stop was very long because the local wine owner was so passionate about his wine and explained everything in detail before we got to taste. It was very interesting. We tried 3 wines and had a little bite to eat. The next winery was also very good but had a lot more food to help soak up all the wine. We bought some wine and really enjoyed the day and met some lovely people too. We would highly recommend doing this tour.

This was a wonderful tour! I enjoyed the city, but this really made me love the area-the countryside is so beautiful-don't miss it! The wine was delicious. There are options to buy during the tasty but I did not feel pressured and you can ship if you want too. The food was generous at our last stop and we got to socialize with the other travelers as we soaked in the view. A great guide with a trip!

This trip was fantastic! The trip was just the right amount of time, and the two wineries were really great. If you are a fan of wine you should really take this trip.

Carlo, our driver/tour guide was excellent!!! Highly recommend this tour. Both wineries were enjoyable with delicious wine. Beautiful Tuscan countryside shared with interesting enjoyable fellow tourists. At the second winery we were able to see the process of producing olive oil. I found that extremely interesting. This tour was a highlight for my husband, daughter, and myself.

We will met at appointed time at the Railway Station and taken to our awaiting mini bus it was a luxurious minibus actually! My thoughts were that we would be driven to our first vineyard and then the driver would just wait for us. How wrong was I?? From the outset our driver, Carlo, was a huge part of our experience. He was hugely informative and as passionate about the wine and olive oil as those we were about to meet. Both vineyards were in beautiful settings but the experiences were different,.We felt the second one was more relaxed and the cheese and meats delicious. Would defintely recommend this trip

We went to 2 wineries. The first was great and informational. She spent a lot of time showing us how to tell if the wine is good quality and how to swish the wine in your mouth. We ordered 1/2 case of wine that actually arrived today! Less than 3 weeks to arrive. The second winery was bigger and they served cheese and salami with bruschetta. It was delicious! A lot more food there and she refilled your glass of wine constantly. This tour was definitely the biggest highlight for me!

Such a great experience! Carlos was an amazing and funny tour guide! Gave us bits and pieces of information before we got to the vineyards about the vineyards.

This was one of our highlights on the trip. Carlo our driver made the whole experience just so much fun and very interesting. The wineries are well worth the effort. We really enjoyed the CASA SOLA winery. They are much more intimate and boutique. But the food at the second was just wonderful. We drank wine and bought wine and had a blast. Our group was great as well...probably a lucky coincidence! But we had a fun mix of young and old from all around the USA. This type of thing is a must if you are in Italy. The Tuscan region is just beautiful and you can feel that magic of the wine making when you are there.

A lovely afternoon in the Tuscan wine country. Our driver and vineyard guides were knowledgeable, approachable and informal. The scenery was beautiful, the tours informative and the wine was excellent! Generous pourings and one vineyard provided a selection of snacks to go with the wine. I would highly recommend this tour.

The tour was so much fun. Lots of wine, meat and cheese. The driver was very nice and informative. We got to see beautiful spots in the Tuscan hills. The guide was very easy to find. Wish we could’ve had more tours like this.

Wonderful wholesome experience for those who have never been to Florence or looking for a half day excursion on their 2-3rd day in Florence. Carlo was our tour guide who was amazing and extremely informative. We had a fairly small group, so we were able to ask more questions about the Florentine history and spend a little more time with the hosts at the wineries. He gave us fun facts, was really competent, easy going and had a bucketful of stories to tell. Great guy!
We ventured to two wineries: the first one taught us how to drink wine without looking pretentious. You get a quick 101 on how to appreciate wine and how it's not to be just gulped away. We ended up ordering some wines and olive oil to be shipped. Their shipping charges were reasonable. The second place was on a beautiful hill with the best smelling cypress trees and flowers. Fun facts here! During the wine tasting, they presented very generous amount of wine to taste paired with cheeses and cured meats. Both places were unique and had their own story to tell, but were both Chianti wines.
It's a lovely tour done the Italian way.

Everything promised in the tour description was delivered.
Our driver, Carlo, provided a nice introduction of Florence before heading out to the Tuscan countryside.
Both vineyards gave us a tour of their property's cellars and an overview of their production facilities.
We then enjoyed bruschetta, a variety of olive oil and rustic breads with our wines in their respective tasting rooms.
Super generous pours at both vineyards. We enjoyed the tastings so much that Carlo had to gather us together to make sure we made our reservation tasting time and got back to destination on time. The vineyards gave us enough time to take photos, purchase and thoroughly enjoy the wines. My only wish was that there were more vineyards to visit and an all-day tour available.

Had a great time on this tour!! Wasn’t too long that it took up your whole day and it was a nice ride out to the hills of Tuscany. The wineries were very informative and after a few glasses of wine at each place we were all laughing, joking and becoming friends on the ride back. Definitely recommend

We visited two wineries during this tour. Both were Great and a bit different. I've grown to love Chianti Classico after this tour. We were inexperienced wine tasters, but, that didn't matter as both places made it enjoyable for all! The driver was great giving us some commentary on the way to the wineries. The sights were awesome and a thouroughly enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in the Tuscan Countryside.

We had an amazing experience on this trip! My parents and I did the 2:15 tour from Florence. The van was spacious and perfect for our small group, and the driver, Carlo was phenomenal. He was very friendly, knowledgable, and informative throughout the entire day. Of course, the views were incredible and the wine even better. Guides at both vineyards were funny and informative, and the food at the second winery was great! Going to just the two wineries allowed us more time to explore and ask questions at each. Could not recommend this tour enough.
