Great day, beautiful scenery, 2 great wineries a dan very knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend.
What a great day, our guide was quite a character and certainly helped to make the day enjoyable. The two wine tastings were fantastic, couldn't have asked for a better day. Glad I chose to do this small group tour, would certainly recommend this day trip to everyone.
This was a fabulous day trip I would recommend to anyone. Khan, our enthusiastic and skilled driver and guide, picked us up at our hotel door on time. There were seven in the group, four Texans and us three Scots. Hit it off immediately and spent an enjoyable day together. Khan is a real asset. He drives well on frequently twisty roads, has a bright and happy personality, goes out of his way to consider his guests' needs and and he knows his Tuscany. A perfect day from start to finish. Twelve glorious hours in a spectacularly beautiful part of Italy.
The first stop, in Montepulciano, was to have a look at the town itself and then to visit the underground winery and former torture chamber! of the Ercolani family. Second son Niccolo showed us around and then led us through an excellent wine-tasting session, with tasty local specialties to try with the various wines. A generous amount and type of wine and food!
Second main stop was in Montalcino, where we visited a larger-scale wineyard, where a simple but enjoyable lunch was again chased down with a selection of the various house wines and a visit of the actual factory.Once again, the guide was very interesting and knowledgeable and it was much appreciated, even if some of the scenery was starting to slip out of focus as a result of generous pourings of sample wines. On the way back we visited Pienza for a brief stop and walk around.
I would certainly recommend this day out. It starts at 7.00 am and lasts a full 12 hours, but ti didn't feel long at any point. The offical stops were well chosen, especially in Montepulciano. I'm sure all the drivers are good, but I would certainly ask for Khan again, if available.So helpful and friendly.
Amazing tour! Excellent tour guide! Great food, great wine! A memory that will last a lifetime!
The guide/driver was fantastic! Really genuine person, very dedicated to providing a pleasant trip. He took us to a couple hilltop towns, and recommended the best way to spend our time. This tour was a great value and a very enjoyable day-trip!

I would recommend this day trip to all who would love the wine County. We enjoyed our guide who was with us all the time and gave great instruction were to meet up and about the area we were driving through. Fantastic trip!!!
I was picked up on time at my hotel in a very clean Mercedes minivan. I think our tour guide's name was Max and he was very nice, polite, knowledgeable and funny! We stopped at several beautiful places for pictures and visited 3 different villages. The vineyard we visited was so beautiful. We had a tour of the vineyard and then they served has a delicious lunch and we sampled 3 different delicious wines. The drive to Tuscany and all the places we visited is breathtaking! I had a wonderful time on this tour!
This was a great tour. We were picked up at the hotel we had spent a lot of on taxies, so this was a nice feature. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny and a great driver. There were 5 of us and he made everyone comfortable. The winery was a terrific experience. Tuscany is a beautiful area. The villages were also interesting. I would highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic stops. Our driver was very informative. We had a wonderful day
What a terrific day! Small group allow for meaningful interaction with the guide.
This tour was fantastic. Not only did we get to experience some wonderful wineries but experiencing the little villages. The scenery was breath taking. Our tour guide Max was so knowledgable about the regions. Tuscany is a must whilst visiting Rome
Loved the tour, but the tour guide was rude and creepy! We didn't feel like we could ask questions because the tour guide would give us snarky answers or be downright rude. The tour itself is amazing!!!!!

Wonderful scenic tour. Thoroughly enjoyed the Tuscan countryside. Enjoyed the winery! Nice to be in a small group throughout the day, gives more individual attention. Just one of the stops had a very steep climb to meet the Guide. Just needed more of a warning about the steepness for people who may have health conditions that a climb like this can affect.
We had a fantastic time on this tour! Beautiful countryside and the small towns are very cool. The driver picked us up right from the hotel without issue. He was very friendly and wanted to be sure we had a good time.
They could upgrade the van. Counting us and the driver, there were 9 people in the van, which was the capacity. Initially, we were up front, which was very tight. Luckily, we were with a family, so they could put two older children up front. Again, the driver noticed this and made the change without us having to say anything.
This time of year, many of the shops are not open. Still plenty to see and do though.
The trip was beautiful and informative. I would have liked more time with the wineries and learning about their grapes, types of wines they are known for, etc. A perfect getaway from Rome central and a very worthwhile adventure. Recommend.
We got to see a lot of different little town's in Tuscany. It was a beautiful tour, just wish we would have tried more wine!
Although the drive is long it was interesting and scenic. The wine tour was good though not the best I have been on. You get quite a lot of time on your own in the villages which is nice, although left to my own devices I would not have spent as long. Driver acted as guide - great sense of humor and made many interesting comments
Bit rushed with four elements. Suggest dropping either the brief wineryy stop in Montepulciano or the visit to Abbey sant Antimo to give more free time in Montepulciano, Montalcino or Pienza
Got picked up on time don't forget to contact them the day before so they know where to pick you up from We were with 3 other couples and found the very back seat uncomfortable and not a great view out the window the front seats would be the best Loved the first winery we went to, but the 2nd was just ok. The hill top towns we visited were our main reason for choosing this tour and they didn't disappoint.
A good tour, but the long van ride was crowded and our driver/guide was not very talkative. He did answer questions when asked but we would have appreciated more information as we didn't always know what questions to ask. The drive was fast, the trip was safe, and we loved every stop we made but would have liked more time in each of the old cities we visited.
