What You Can Expect

Sunset Siena and Chianti Wine Tour with Dinner from Florence

Enjoy your time in the Chiani region!

Your evening excursion will begin at Florence’s Santa Maria Novella Station. Join your guide aboard a comfortable coach and start your journey through the olive groves and green hills of the Tuscan countryside.

Arrive in Siena and enjoy 2.5 hours to explore independently, checking out the central Piazza del Campo or the Duomo, a stunning Gothic cathedral with interior frescoes and alternating stripes of white and black marble.

After watching the sunset, hop back in your coach and head to the region of Chianti, made famous by its ruby-red wine. There, you’ll visit one of the area’s prominent wine estates, set amidst a Tuscan farm. Take a guided tour of the cellars and learn about the production and aging process that gives the Chianti blends a world-class flavor.

Then settle into a table in the main farmhouse or, weather permitting, outdoors for a 4-course meal (sample menu can be found below). Pair your dinner with up to four glasses of the estate’s wine, learning about the characteristics of each from your guide as you sip.

After your evening of wining, dining and sightseeing concludes, you will be returned to central Florence in your coach.

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide Chiara was informative, pleasant and helpful. The drive through Tuscany and Chianti were nice. It took about an hour to get to Siena and we spent a little less than two hours there. We visited the Duomo and Piazza del Campo as well as walked around the city, getting some coffee and snacks. The we proceeded to the Tenuta Torciano winery in San Gimignano. Dinner was good with lots of wine tastings included. Wine is expensive, but good things are. We purchased some wine and balsamic vinegar, which is actually going to be shipped to us in the US. We were back in Florence at about 8.30ish. Overall a great value and experience.

If you dont have much time to spend in Tuscany this is a perfect tour to take..not too long on the bus to Sienna with enough time to look around the town. The wine tasting was very good and the dinner was delicious. I would highly recommend this tour.

Amazing experience! Our guide was Brando, and I highly highly recommend getting on a tour with him. He was fantastic. The whole tour was awesome, but Brando was the best guide you could ask for! It's a beautiful tour, and great wine at the end.

This tour was so much fun, due mostly to the enthusiasm of our guide, Brando. He was informative, helpful and overall, just a lot of fun. The tour was outstanding. The sunsets in Tuscany are not to be missed. And, the dinner was great -- especially the excellent wines we were offered to taste. Highly recommended.

We always book tours ahead of trip, but this was a last minute decision while there. I'm glad we decided to take this tour. A bus took us to Siena, we heard some history from our guide then had time to stroll the city and tour the Duomo. It is much more ornate inside than in Florence and I would recommend going inside. We then drove through beautiful Tuscany and it's rolling hills to the Panzanello Winery. The only downside was it got dark quickly and we didn't get to see much. The tour should be started earlier to get more daylight and hit sunset when arriving at the winery. Instead of driving and arriving at dark. We didn't really see what the Winery grounds looked like. We had a tour and had a wonderful intimate home cooked meal and tasting. The owner was friendly and funny and it was an enjoyable evening. We purchased a case of wine which they shipped home and we gave bottles as Christmas presents. The food was amazing and the owners wife did give a recipe of her Tuscan soup to me through Facebook later. We did arrive back pretty late, we were full and happy!

The tour was great. Brando (our guide) was fantastic and he really made the trip special. Sienna was lovely and the vineyard was a fun experience. Good food and good wine.

After a one hour bus ride from Florence, we arrived in Siena. We were lucky as our date in Siena was on the eve of the Palio. Siena was crazy packed with people, police, and parades. Our experience in Siena was probably very different than the other 360 days in the year. Once in a lifetime opportunity. We wandered around for an hour. Found a very beautiful cathedral. Another short bus ride took us to the vineyard. Dinner at the winery was very delicious. Enjoyed sampling 6 wines. Our winery hostess was very entertaining. Our tour hostess bus guide was very knowledgable about Italy, Siena and the Tuscany region, but she could've eliminated her commentary about global warming.

Absolutely one of the best tours I have ever taken. It was a small group in a nice bus and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Siena was fabulous and then the Chianti organic and delicious wine tour at the winery was wonderful. A ride through Tuscany topped off with a fabulous wine tasting, tour of the winery, and an exquisite 4 course italian meal. The people at the winery are very charming and fun and the winery is impeccable and the grounds and sunset are breathtaking. I highly recommend this one!

Siena was beautiful but it did not compare to the dinner and hospitality at the winery. It was my favorite meal in Tuscany and we truly enjoyed the group atmosphere. The wine was also incredible as we had to buy some to ship home.
