Great personal wine experience
Rachel_M

This experience was very good. We loved how the guides at the wineries were right there to greet us off the bus and provided a very personal experience. Our guide, Violeta, was very knowledgeable and fun. She gave us fun facts about Florence that we hadn't heard before and a lot about wine making. It was.a great day!

This was a highlight of our two-week vacation tp Rome, Florence and London. Highly recommended. The logistics were simple and top notch. The wineries were beautiful, informative and had great wine and food. I have a case of wine being shipped home as a result. I suddenly have the desire to retire to Tuscany.

We enjoyed today's (3 July 2022) wine-tasting tour with our tour guide Rosanna and our bus driver Antonio. We visited Casa Emma and Fattoria Montecchio. Although there were 4 items listed under Entry/Admission in the description of what is included, the tour only goes to 2 wineries. We sampled 4 wines at each place, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and an assortment of local sliced meats and cheeses from the region. We were pleased with our tour.

Wonderful half day wine tasting trip! Easy instructions for getting to the meeting spot, organized check in process, and our guides (Rafael & Alexandra) were knowledgeable and entertaining! Rafael was also a great photographer for everyone at the vineyards. This tour is a great value - visited two vineyards and sampled 4 wines at each, along with some bread, olive oil, and cheeses. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to enjoy the beauty of Tuscany with some delicious wine!

The Tuscan countryside was breathtaking and each vineyard that we visited had informative and friendly staff that made the experience great. The wine that we tasted was delicious but our tour guide Daniele was the star of the show. Right from the start he was funny and so upbeat that it would make anyone smile. He was delighted to share all the interesting details about the Chianti region and you could tell how passionate he was about the process of making wine. Big thanks to Daniele, you’re the man!

Unfortunately we did not make the trip so cannot review it. However the communication of the group was poor. My partner fell ill the night before and they declined refunding us, which made sense. But when I asked if we could reschedule to another day they stopped answering, despite multiple attempts to contact them. We felt like the communication was poor and the group was not willing to work with us.

This was a wonderful way to see Tuscany in a half day. We thoroughly enjoyed both wineries! Stefani was an entertaining driver for the 40 minute drive to wineries and the hosts at the wineries provided I sight into their wine making processes. We recommend!

This experience exceeded our expectations. I mean … I don’t even drink wine and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I booked this experience for my girlfriend who loves wine and clearly, she had a blast. We were nothing but smiles the whole time enjoying meeting people from all over, tasting the wines and the breads with meats and olive oils and taking in the breathtaking views. 💯 # check it out. Oh! The staff is wonderful too.

THIS TOUR IS A MUST!!!

a group of friends and I were studying abroad from the States and we wanted to get the Italian wine experience, but we only had half a day! Chianti is the BEST and we snatched this tour up when we could. Raffaelle was the most informative and kind tour guide! Our winery visits exceeded expectations, and we learned so many interesting things about wine production. We also made so many friends on the tour:) If you are looking to try some of Italy's finest wines with Italy's finest company this is the trip for you!!!!
