One of the highlights of our entire trip. First it was nice to get away from the city for a while and enjoy the beautiful Tuscany countryside and Sienna. The skies cleared and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset on our way to the winery. The winery served a delicious dinner and, of course, their outstanding wines. Many bought bottles while there and some also had wine shipped back home. Great guide and bus driver. Highly recommend this tour!!
This was the highlight of our 8 day trip to Italy! The guide was very informative and friendly. The Wine host and his wife were welcoming and her lasagna was outstanding. We learned so much about wine and how it was made. We made lots of friends in a short time. Thanks for such an enjoying experience.
One of the best things I and #39;ve ever done our guide was amazing she had such a passion for her hometown Siena was beautiful and great to see ... The main aim of the tour was the winery the dinner was top class and the whole tour was great the owner was really proud to show everyone around very funny man
We really enjoyed this trip! Siena is a cool place to visit. The tour guide was nice and had the driver stop at a great location to take photos. The winery tour and dinner including wine tasting were great! The food was good typical Tuscan cuisine and the glasses of wine were abundant.
There were only 6 people on this tour and it was very good. Siena was a gem and the church was fabulous. Make sure you check out the small library as this is nothing short of amazing. You do waste a bit of time purchasing the entry ticket. The trip through Chianti is great and the guide arranged with the driver to stop for us to take some photos. The meal at the winery was good, local and rustic and matched the wines. The short winery tour was informative with the wine maker being a wonderful talker of his local product. Our guide, Antonio, was excellent. He had extensive knowledge and kept us informed throughout the trip.
Great trip to take vineyard tour and dinner outstanding. guide as well as vineyard owner first rate.
I recommend this tour for red wine lovers. The Tour guide was extremely sweet and knowledgeable on our journey to Siena . The vineyard dinner was a highlight of the trip.
Fantastic scenery, Siena is wonderful and the vineyard and meal were superb. It is a wine tasting meal and not a wine drinking trip so do not expect large glasses of wine, but the meal and staff cannot be faulted.
Food was delicious as was the wine, a fantastic trip but be careful, some of the roads are a little tight and bumpy so if easily car / bus sick then be prepared.
excellent value. Had 1hr 45 min in Sienna, just long enough to see the Duomo and have a coffee in fhe square. The wine tour was fun anx informative. The dinner was excellwnt as was the wine. A fun afternoon/evening. Excellent value.
This was a wonderful experience, Antonio our guide, was very helpful and knowledgeable. The wine tasting and food was very good, I was able to buy and ship back some wine very simply.
We had a really great time on our tour. Our guide was amazing. She spoke several languages which was very impressive, but you could tell that she was clearly passionate about the area. The dinner was beautiful and so was the scenery. We'd definitely recommend this tour - you won't regret it!
An excellent guide and tour.Because our group was fifty people it was too large to move swiftly and it meant along time serving dinner. There was no dessert, only biscotti which was a disappointment considering the cost.We arrived back in Florence after eleven PM.The driver of the bus was excellent in tight roads on the way to Chianti Country and exiting the vineyard.A very pleasant evening but the size of the group was too many.
AMAZING!!! The trip to the farm was the highlight of our trip to Florence--Carlo's passion was palatable and shined through in his food and wine. This trip is well worth the cost and I highly, highly recommend it!
We would definitely recommend this tour. It was fantastic and organised very well. Big thanks for our tour guides they were fantastic, driver was lovely too.
We loved the wine and Sienna. The only thing that was missing is they said desert would be tiramisu, but we only got a shot of really strong clear grape drink and some plain biscuits. Other than that A+++

Awesome tour! Really nice guide and the dinner at the vineyard was just soooo delicious!
Very enjoyable experience in Siena and at a small winery in the Chianti region! We loved our tour guide Antonio, who was friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the different places we visited. We started our journey near the train station in Florence, leaving right on time in our nice small bus which even had wifi!. Our first stop was the charming city of Siena. We felt that we had the perfect amount of time there -- about an hour-and-a-half -- to explore the expansive Christmas market, the sanctuary of St. Catherine of Siena, another Gothic-style church, and to wander the buzzing streets near the main piazza. We then made the hour-long trip to a small winery in the Chianti region called Panzanello. We were treated to a brief but interesting tour of the winemaking process by the welcoming, friendly sommelier for the winery before being seated for our four-course dinner, each course paired with a wine. By the way, they do offer a vegetarian option for the meal, when requested ahead of time! Each of the four wines and the grappa! were excellent. The food was decent, although perhaps not at the same caliber as the wine although we might have just been spoiled by some exceptional meals on our vacation in Italy!. We left very happy with our experience and would recommend it to others, especially those with limited time or transportation to Tuscan wineries! We enjoyed being able to hop on board the bus and let Ciao Florence the tour company take care of us. One small thing to keep in mind--- we loved seeing the sunset in Siena, but some might prefer an earlier tour that would allow them to see the Tuscan countryside on the approach to the winery. Enjoy! Ciao!
Siena is absolutely gorgeous!! The dinner at the winery is good. The wines were very good and the staff very friendly and informative.
Muy bonita experiencia, lo mejor la visita al viñedo y la cena excelente.
This was a great tour a perfect mix of guided and free time. However I think some of the magic was lost due to the time of day. I think in winter it needs to start earlier as it and #39;s totally dark by the time you leave Siena so you miss the views on the drive to the winery. Otherwise a spectacular day
Loved Siena,it was so chilled and relaxed and the church was beautiful. Spending time doing our own thing around the town was great. The winery was nice and meeting fellow Aussie who shared friends we knew was great.
Be warned though I booked this expecting to get lovely sunset Photo's but we did not, sunset was lovely as we drove to our winery location, but the winery was located down the wrong side of a hill and was not really photogenic. There where a few of us on the tour who had booked with the thought that we where going to get beautiful sunset photo's. The guide did respond to a complaint and some of us where taken to a vantage point to get dusk photo's the sun had set over the beautiful Chianti hills. For me this saved the tour as the disappointment was huge. The food was lovely and the evening eating getting to know fellow travellers was very nice.
The word sunset in my opinion needs to be taken out of the title as the expectation is set right there, if I was booking something like an Afternoon in Siena with dinner in a Chianti winery, my experience would not have been tainted.
With limited time to see the sights outside Florence, but wanting to get a taste of Siena and Wine country this was a great way to do it. You are basically driven to Siena and have time to explore and relax there, followed by a trip to a local winery. The dinner and wine tasting was great and the owners were very welcoming. Due to the time of year we were there October it was unfortunately dark for a good portion of the drive and once we arrived so we didn't get a chance to see the beautiful Tuscon scenery.
Good enjoyable tour with a relaxed atmosphere and excellent guide and driver. Meal at winery was barely up to standard
