Fun afternoon tour of Chanti-Classico region and wineries. Cheeses and meats provided at the winery was huge and excellent.
This was an amazing trip with an amazing guide, Carlo. My husband, myself and our 2 friends booked the early excursion first thing in morning. The 4 of us were the only ones who booked this tour. Carlo drove us through the Tuscan countryside where we stopped to take scenic pictures. Next we stopped in a small town called Greve where we did some shopping. Finally we arrived at Montecchio Vineyard where we watched olives being crushed into oil and paste, and down into the wine cellars to see the making of wine. Grand finale the wine tasting! We can't say enough about Carlo and how he answered every single question we asked. He is very knowledgeable on the history of Florence and this made for a dynamic tour. Also Lodovica at the vineyard was so informative about the whole process of making olive oil and wine. This tour will forever be burnt in our minds and now that we are home we continue to talk about it. Thank you Carlo and Lodovica!

This tour was the perfect half-day trip. We highly recommend it!
The tour was great, countryside was beautiful and the wine amazing.. I left my cell phone in the restroom and didn't realize until later in the tour.. the driver and company could not have been more helpful. It was found and i received emails letting me know the driver the next evening would bring it to me. I was sooo greatfull. Costomer service an A
We met at a designated spot and were transported to a winery about 45 minutes outside of Florence. We had about 15 people in our group and traveled in a comfortable van. On the way to the winery our guide/driver gave us information on the sights we were passing and also a lesson on the wine making of the region. Our tour of the Montecchio vineyard was wonderful and it was followed by the opportunity to sample some wine. We were seated at lovely tables and served bruschetta, bread, cheeses and meat with our wine. The bottles were left on the table, so we could have a little more of the wine we liked. On the way back to Florence we made a stop in a small town in Tuscana for about 30 minutes, We had lovely service at a restaurant called Greve ni Chianti. Our guide and the group we were with made for a very enjoyable day.
Awesome excursion, we were only a group of 8 and had a wonderful drive through the Tuscan countryside with highly knowledgeable and professional driver Carlo. Our tour of the winery was very cool, we got to sample 3 amazing wines and lots more food samples than we had expected, all very tasty. The countryside was beautiful, the food and wine excellent - 10/10 would do again.
I had a fantastic time. I will recommend this tour to my friend.
LOVED this tour! The winery was beautiful and the tour was very informative. The wine was excellent. We were treated to some great appeatizers in addition to generous pours of wine.
Our driver, Carlos, made this trip very enjoyable. He was friendly, very knowledgeable of the area, and took us through the countryside so we could enjoy the Tuscan scenery. First stop was in the small town of Greve for cappuccino and pastry, then on to the winery. The tasting included three wines as well as very nice appetizers to compliment each wine. After tasting, we were taken down into the cellar to see how the wine is aged and processed. It was a most enjoyable and relaxing day!
We really enjoyed our afternoon. Knowledgeable guide and a well organized tasting.
This tour was amazing! The guide spoke english well and had lots of information to share on the way to the winery. He talked about the history of the towns and about different wines. When we got there we had another guide that taught us how wine is made then we sat down for some great food and wine
Should try...Tuscan countryside is worth the visit...charming and relaxing with wine tasting on the side.

The trip was very enjoyable. We were with one other couple and our helpful driver.
The small village we stopped at was charming.
We enjoyed the tour and wine tasting.
All went well. We had a great time
This tour was perfect. We got to taste amazing food and wine at a very beautiful Winery. Our tour guide and Driver were great, even stopping for extra sights along the way. Getting to stop and Greve was wonderful. I absolutely recommend the tour to everyone!
Excellent tour. Very informative, fantastic guide Carlo, beautiful countryside, great wine. More than met our expectations.
This small tour takes you on smaller roads in Tuscany that the big tour buses cannot make. Definitely worth it. Our driver Carlo was quite knowledgeable about Tuscany and did a great job.
Nice drive through the countryside, quick stops along the way. Vineyard was lovely. Wine and food delicious!
One of the highlights of my trip! We were a small group, and our guide was great. Drinking Chianti in Chianti was cool, and the vineyard staff showed us around the rooms and poured some delicious wines. I shipped some back home they were so good. I learned about about the region and Chianti and Super-Tuscans. Then we went to a village and tried another Chianti it was free time, our decision. Just being in the countryside was relaxing. I highly recommend this tour!
Our driver was fantastic - very knowledgeable, friendly, and took the time to show us sites along the way. The property itself was beautiful and our guide of the winery was also very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend!
This was a fantastic tour! I registered and paid then received a call saying the booking came in too late they had already completed the financial transaction and asked if we could do a different tour or the same tour on a different day. This was our last day in Florence and we couldn't adjust. Through several back and forth conversations and a threat to provide a poor Yelp review, the tour company added another vehicle and we were able to go on the tour. The small group, the driver, the winery and the scenery made this an awesome experience!
We absolutely loved this tour, the driver was very nice and accommodating to our needs. The drive up the to vineyard was absolutely beautiful. I had an idea of what the Tuscan country side should look like but reality was way better.
Highly recommend this tour to any one who wants a taste of wine and a taste of what the less crowded Italy looks like.
The tour was great. The winery was beautiful. The tasting came with multiple glasses of wine with multiple appetizers. The tasting was followed by a tour of the cellar. The visit to Greve was under an hour but was sufficient.
This is nice escape from Florence. Beautiful drive into Tuscany. We sampled wine from one vineyard and they served appetizers with each sampling. Nice tour of the vineyard. We had a small group in our van. The driver spoke English and was very informative about the countryside.
Thank you to Carlo, our excellent tour guide! My Mum and I had the most wonderful day driving through the Tuscan countryside and Carlo went out of his way to show us the best sights. His knowledge of all things Tuscan is incredible and we felt so lucky to have him as our guide. Montecchio wine estate is breath-taking and the guide at the winery had perfect English and was able to give us plenty of information. The wine wasting with local produce was perfect and I would highly recommend this tour to anybody wanting to explore the regions wines - definitely a day to remember! Thank you!
