This was an excellent tour and I would definitely recommend this day trip from Florence for anyone who likes wine, or even just likes a drive through the hills of Chianti and into the area south of Siena. Our tour guide, Luca, was a delight, and very knowledgeable. He was very pleasant and personable, and was outgoing and friendly. We stopped at 2 outstanding wineries - one in Chianti Castellina and another near Montalcino. We also stopped in Greve and saw the main square of this typical Chianti town. Luca was a great driver and was open to doing whatever the group wanted. He never tired and kept all of us very engaged. There was never a dull moment -- everyone on the trip a small group got to know each other, and we had a great time as a group, and a great shared experience with Luca. The wineries we stopped at were wonderful - and it was such a treat to sample wines that would grace the tables of fine Florentine restaurants. Our hosts at these wineries treated us like family and were clearly professionals at making wine. These wineries were family run, and had a charm that only a family organization can give. But these wineries made top-flight wines, and a lot of wine.
My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much. Our driver, Tomasso, was great. The wineries were excellent, the scenery beautiful, and Tomasso made sure we had plenty of opportunities to stop and take photos throughout the day. There was a flea market going on in the town square in Greve-in-Chianti and a flea market/carnival in Montepulciano which we felt detracted from the charm of both towns. We did this tour on a Sunday which may account for these distractions. Nevertheless, we would certainly recommend this tour.
I loved this wine tour! First off, Sergio, our driver and tour guide was wonderful. Not only is he very knowledgeable about the wine areas, he is such an interesting person, with an amazing personality. All of the people on our tour where American, 6 of us total, and Sergio spoke perfect English. We traveled across several wine regions, 4 town stops including Greve to walk around, Castellina private tour and wine tasting, Montalcino private tour, lunch with 4 bottles of wine to share/taste, and then our last stop was Montepulciano...where we had 1.5 hours to walk around and explore. We are from San Francisco, and spoiled with all the many beautiful and famous wine regions. If you are staying in/around Florence, Tuscany is not to be missed! The drive alone, all along the rolling hills, castles, hill towns, made this trip 100 worth it. I loved every bit of it! It is a long day, with many curvy roads beware for those that get car sick and a perfect tour if you want to see all that Tuscany has to offer. Ask for Sergio...you will not regret it! I hope to make it back again to explore more wine regions in Tuscany. Ciao!
This tour was amazing!
We had a really lovely day touring Tuscany, and Walter was an excellent tour host. We stopped in Greve, had an amazing tasting at Poggio Amorelli, a delicious tasting and light lunch at Carpazo in Montalcino, and ambled around Montelpulciano for a bit. We wish we had more time in Montelpulciano, but that was our fault for staying so long in Montalcino! Overall it was a great value and a memorable day- recommended.
