Great day trip
Sandra_S, Mar 2023
Great tour, you really get a lot for your money, a ride from near Florence (20 min easy ride from center with tram), two wine tours, guide that explains some history of Florence and Chianti wine and also a stop at a beautiful fort ! Really nice trip, I had a great day. **little tip for the tour guide to get a microphone in the van so one can hear a bit better

Great trip . Our guide Anna was very informative and even though the bus was full , had time to speak with everyone.
Rachel_M, Oct 2022
This was alright. We went to two wineries but it was underwhelming. First location was rushed but second winery was better. We also stopped at a little town which was fun! However, I think you’ll be better off booking an individual tour with the winery itself.
Matthew_L, Oct 2022
We loved our half day in the Tuscan countryside. Manaz was an incredible guide and made it relaxing and fun. The two wineries we went to were very beautiful (and also had delicious wine!) Lovely photos taken throughout the trip as well. Highly recommend!
No food
Amanda_L, Oct 2022
They didn’t give any food and gave way less wine than other tours at the same price. Highly recommend booking other tour you will enjoy it more.

Vineyard tour around Tuscany
Yumi_P, Oct 2022
After some challenges finding the location the guide your Mario for that day answer to my messages and he found us at the location . It is challenging the address in Florence with google map or city mapping. My advice always ask for a full address . Thank you to the the guide tour that after his second tour he offer us a group of 45 people an excellent services .
Chianti and Tuscan Scenery! What more could you ask for?
Marita_T, Oct 2022
We loved absolutely everything about this tour! The tour guide was fun, informative, and flexible. The first winery did a great job of explaining the wine tastings and history of the Chianti region. We learned a lot! The venue itself was absolutely charming… great photo ops. Next winery was much different but exactly what you would think of in Tuscany. The views were amazing of the countryside. The winery here was sustainable so that was nice to experience. Especially the ability to taste the grapes right from the vine! The wine tastings were a bit rushed here but the scenery and opportunity to walk around the property was a wonderful experience.
Fun time had by all. Much...
Patrick_N, Oct 2022
Fun time had by all. Much longer than I anticipated Wine was good. people were friendly wish we could have tasted some of the cheaper wines
Wine Country Tour
Keisha_V, Oct 2022
Great experience experiencing two wineries. Guides were very knowledgeable and wine was good. Two negatives - children should not be allowed. We had a young boy on our tour that was running around, being loud, and distracting. Also - the tour didn’t stay on schedule. When the bus went to leave not everyone was ready and we waited a very long time. Wasn’t a huge deal for us but could have been had we relied on getting back the time we were supposed to. Others were worrying about making flights, etc.
Fun afternoon high recommend
Elaine_D, Oct 2022
The first stop where we were able to taste additional wines and make purchases with help. The staff at the winery was awesome!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Dear Elaine, thank you for choosing my tour during your staying in Italy! Was nice to serve you and we hope to have you back again and experience more tours together. Best Regards my tour
Wine tasting, yes - not much of a 'tour' of anything
jim_b, Oct 2022
Fun experience. Not sure I'd call this a 'tour' though. More of a tasting. First location did have a bit of a tour and description of what they do at that vineyard. At the second stop, we arrived, sat, tasted wines and left. The "stop to explore the picturesque medieval village of Castellina" .... we stopped, but very rushed, no time to "explore". We were told we had time to grab a gelato or drink, but had to be back on the bus quickly because our driver needed to be back for another tour. Unfortunate as the village looked nice from what we could see, and would have been great to have the time to explore it.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Dear Jim first of all thank you for choosing us as a tour operator. You had the tour Chianti afternoon, this tour ends in the evening so the driver didn't have another tour, but we respect our schedule. You have free time at all the places where this tour stops,enough to see the highlights. Hope to have you back again in the future. Best Regards my tour
Beautiful experience
apena_S, Sep 2022
Both the winery’s we went to were beautiful. Our tour guide and driver we’re both friendly. The time we went was perfect as we saw the second winery during sunset.
Response from Host, Sep 2022

No A/C on bus - Rushed experience
Kyle_S, Sep 2022
The bus had very little to no air conditioning and the driver would not or could not turn it up after many people asked. Each spot felt very rushed. We stopped at a small town and they only gave us 30 minutes. At the wineries there wasn’t much time at all to enjoy the ambiance because we had to get on the bus again. I would recommend the longer tour.
Delicious Wines!
Kasey_S, Sep 2022
This was a fun tour. The bus ride was very hot even though there was air conditioning, and it was an hour drive at the beginning and the end of the tour. The wineries gave good tours of how they make their wines, and had gorgeous views. The wine and extra virgin olive oil was very good at the first stop. The second winery had delicious wine and Valentina was great, but we felt rushed to get through the tasting. The tour guides did not give you much time to purchase anything at the wineries either. The last stop was for some shopping, gelato, and more great views, but we only got a half hour there. There was a place to taste wine there as well that had more delicious wine!
Tuscan Wineries
margaret_c, Aug 2022
The countryside is beautiful. Two different wineries made for an interesting experience along with each winery’s guide. The first was serious and informative, the second light on with information but fun and open to questions. A lovely afternoon of good wine and company.
Terrible experience
Ryan_M, Aug 2022
The whole trip was terrible until the last winery that was okay. The bus was so hot the whole trip and the first winery was nothing besides a sales pitch with mediocre wine. The only good part of the trip was the last winery. Besides that it was terrible, I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
