Spectacular trip --do it again in a heart beat
Wonderful private tour of Chianti and Montalcino. This is a private tour and gives you the flexibility to do pretty much whatever you want. My wife and I wanted to focus on wineries and Belki pretty sure I misspelled his name was wonderful. He took the time to set up the tours, and even added one after he picked us up. He was also very knowledgeable about the region and Italy in general. Highly recommend spending the money for this tour if you're interested in good wine and seeing sights off the beaten path.
What an incredible tour! Absolutely beautiful countryside to see, very knowledgeable and friendly driver, and we even had some flexibility to improvise along the way. Oh, and what amazing wine we tasted!! I highly recommend to anyone considering this tour.
Our private group so enjoyed our day with Marco. As others have noted, he is punctual, can answer almost any question you can throw at him and showed us some amazing sites along with the end-of-day wine tasting. It's more than that, though, that I want to say about our tour. It is because of Marco that three old friends will have a memory to stay with us forever. Guides make the difference in a tour and we all felt we had the best in Marco. Not only is his English conversational, but he also has a very good sense of humor and understands a lot of our American peculiarities too. He listens to what you want to see and tries to include that in the day. After learning more about you, he makes suggestions on the fly too. Our lunch stop was just so perfect as he chose it for us. The bottom line is that a private tour does cost a bit more than doing it in a big bus, but the value and experience far exceed anything done in a big group. The Mercedes van was extremely comfortable and gave us all a little spread out room too. We look forward to another opportunity to book with Marco as he does arrange tours to almost any place in Italy. Marco clearly enjoys showing you his Italy and you benefit from that gift.
Our driver Marco was great. Clean car with internet !!, bottled water. He gave us introductions to the places we will be visiting and was very flexible to accommodate our special requests regarding the itinerary. Would highly recommend using him and his company again.
Leonardo was a great guide. Safely escorted us as he provided interesting history. Spoke English very well.
Very beautiful and enjoyable day. Driver/guide arrived on time in a beautiful luxury van. He was very proper and polite. The wine tasting was lovely. The villages were gorgeous. The only advice is be prepared to spend a lot of time in the car. The villages are extremely far from Florence and from each other. at least 4 hours were spent in the car. It was beautiful but not sure if it was wort the drive.
