Our private hiking tour through Chianti Classico vineyards in Tuscany was everything we hoped for and more!!
Silvia was an exceptional guide with tons of information about the area, the vineyards and the city of Siena, especially loved her recommendation for dinner!!
The hike is a bit more strenuous than we expected but Silvia was very patient and we went at a comfortable pace... The scenery was beyond spectacular and lunch was Amazing!! Especially the Chianti!!
Unfortunately we had a downpour during our time in San Gimignano but we still enjoyed the town.
Highly recommend Tuscan Escapes!!!
This was quite simply a wonderful day in the Tuscan countryside. We stayed in Siena for a number of nights but wanted to see the picture postcard landscape which is associated worldwide with Tuscany and we did just that. This trip gets you out among the vineyard and olive groves so you really experience the colours of Tuscany. There is really no one else about but you, your guide and every on often you come across someone working among the vines. The terracotta rooftops, the citrus trees and of course the poppies all help to leave you with images of Tuscany you will never forget. Our Guide Silivia was great and very attentive. She prepared a wonderful picnic after our walk which was a wonderful way to finish the day. Book this trip. I've read all the descriptions of the other trips on offer around the Siena area but this one is something different and does not disappoint.
We had a great day with Jacopo. He tailored the hike to what we were interested in doing. Milo showed up with a great picnic lunch. Very enjoyable!
Milo picked us up at the arranged meeting place near the fortress in Sienna and drove us out to where we stared the beautiful walk through the vineyards. We chattered easily as we walked with Milo who enjoys good food and wine as much as we do. He was also able to give us an outline of the history of the Chainti area. Following our walk we drove to the scenic spot amongst the olive trees where Milo set up our picnic lunch. The afternoon visit to the two hilltop medieval villages gave us free time to explore and taste even more of " the worlds best gelati".
