The driver Maximilian was very kind. The two wineries were excellent, especially the 2nd one. Both places had wonderful wine. The views from the 2nd winery were what you see in pictures. Absolutely beautiful!

Great tour out of Siena
Melina_P, May 2023
This was a great way to get out and see wine country. It was an easy meet-up, beautiful scenery, and we visited 2 gorgeous wineries + time to explore Montalcino. Would recommend!
The driver was...
Jerry_L, May 2023
The driver was professional and friendly and while I expected a long drive, the experiences at the wineries were just ok at the first and disappointing at the second. It seemed the host had better things to do and couldn’t wait for us to leave. I’ve done many wine tastings and these were the most meager pours I’ve seen. Good wines though. I don’t think the value was there for the cost of the excursion.
Response from Host, May 2023

Do not recommend this provider and tour.
Alejandra_M, May 2023
I booked and paid for a tour with a Spanish guide for 3 (2 of us just speak Spanish). When the guide turned up it was only an English tour and he didn’t speak Spanish at all. He was actually very nice and tried to speak to us in Italian. The agency ‘myTour in Italy’ never contacted us to let us know that the minimum number required for the Spanish tour hasn’t been met. They should of told us and let us make the decision or offer a refund. My sister and cousin didn’t get a clue of the tour explanations. Still waiting for an apology at least but nothing. Viator didn’t do anything about my claim, still waiting as well.
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Alejandra, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are very sorry to hear that we could not offer the tour in Spanish. Unfortunately, due to health issues, the Spanish guide was not able to show up that day and we could not find another guide who could substitute him. We always try to ensure that travellers can enjoy our activities and tours. We have already contacted Viator's customer care to inform them about this. In case you need more details, please write us at Sincerely, myTour in Italy
Amazing day

Rough start, good finish.
Caleb_B, Apr 2023
Overall the experience was fun but you spend more time in the bus than the actual winery. The company really needs to do better at communicating and figuring out a pickup location. My wife and I spent 20 mins waiting at the “pick up location” given to us by the company only to find out that the driver was a half mile down the road waiting on us. It wasn’t only us it seemed to happen to everyone riding with us that day.
A perfect afternoon
Bob_N, Apr 2023
The 2 wineries were small intimate out of the way, and unique, and the wine was fabulous! I also loved the hill town, Montalcino. I appreciated our guide who was friendly and knowledgeable.
Lovely Brunello wine tour
Susan_R, Apr 2023
Small group of people. Very compatible. The two wineries were different. The Brunello wine was great. I was glad To sit up front with the guide who answered all of my questions. I especially was happy about his dropping me off much closer to Home than the meeting point.
Response from Host, Apr 2023

Also, we always want to ensure comfort and enjoyment, that's why we try to do our best! We wish to have you back again in the future. Best regards, myTour in Italy
Incredible Brunello Wine Tour
Amy_F, Jan 2023
The trip was fantastic! On the way over, our tour guide, Daniel, provided us with a rich history of the area. He answered our questions. He also explained the intricacies of Brunello wine. The drive in the Tuscan countryside was spectacular!! The two wineries that we visited were excellent! The sommelier at both were fantastic. I highly recommend this trip!
The whole overall...
Larry_D, Nov 2022
The whole overall experience was great, the knowledge of the winery employees, the scenery and of course the wine. Also our guide Vincent did an awesome job.
Breath taking views
Richard_G, Nov 2022
Had a hreat time. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The wineries were nice. The wine tasting was good
Ashley_S, Oct 2022
Great trip! We visited 2 wineries then Montalcino at sunset, it was perfect. The half day trip was the perfect amount of time as well. Highly recommend!
Brunelleschi wines and MONTALCINO!
Julia_S, Oct 2022
Excellent tour. The guide was informative. These 2 vineyards were small and it was a relaxed and intimate tasting.
Lovely trip!
Liz_Z, Oct 2022
We had a great group and Daniel was a lovely guide with a good sense of humor. We were able to see two wineries, catch the sunset in Montcino, and have a pleasant ride back. The pick-up was a bit late, but we were able to do everything before it got too dark out.
Great tour
Joseph_O, Oct 2022
Tasting the wines and seeing the countryside……………two really good families dedicated to making great wines
Great places, unsafe & unprofessional guide
Janielle_T, Sep 2022
The tour itself is great, the wineries are perfect and lovely to visit. The small group size is also nice. However, please inquire on who your guide/driver is either before booking or before the cancellation period. If it is Romana, I highly recommend not going. She was highly unprofessional- she yelled at the group several times during the tour for various reasons like she perceived not everyone was listening to her in the drive out for example. She also yelled at the group for making her late to the second winery when two people purchased a bottle of wine at the end of the first tour (which really brought down the mood) & then proceeded to drive unsafely to the second winery (speed on dirt/gravel roads) to the point that workers at the second winery made comments about it as we arrived and also ensured we were in fact not late and were just fine on time. Some people on our tour inquired around about her and seems like she may have a history of this behavior. Mind blowing this is allowed to represent the company. Again, the places themselves are great so I’d imagine with a different driver/guide this would be a 5-star review, however we were unfortunate in being lead by Romana in our tour. Don’t make this same mistake.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Dear Janielle, first of all thank you for choosing us as a tour operator. We feel sorry that our service didn't come to you as you expected. You can reach us at so we can see how to make things up for you. We would like to have you again in the future to experience more tours together. Best Regards
Terrible tour guide experience
Tobi_Q, Sep 2022
Romana our driver was horrific, dangerous and possibly mentally ill. She forced us out of the car in a town we did not know on the way to the first winery and almost drove away with my daughter’s foot still on the concrete because we got lost in the town and did not know where to meet her, which caused her to be angry with us. She drove way over the speed limit scaring us almost to death and causing various people to honk at her incessantly. She took my daughter to a abandoned field to go to the toilet. She told us she would take us to our car and then went wild because she couldn’t find it screaming and yelling and scaring us. She cursed, rushed us, talked badly about the price of the tour, and ruined what should have been a good experience. The wineries were wonderful but we could not relax having to get back in the car with her. She should not be employed by this company.
Wonderful way to experience Tuscan vineyards
Victoria_M, Sep 2022
Really really great experience - small group of people, and the way it’s organised means everyone gets a chance to connect. Wine was excellent, and winery owners/operators very informative. Romana was an amazing driver and guide - the best we had on our entire trip!
Must do tour for new to Brunello di Montalcino wines!
Eric_C, Aug 2022
Really amazing wineries perfectly representing Brunello di Montalcino in differing ways. Great driver and quaint visit to the city pf Montalcino with breathtaking views of Tuscany landscape!
Exellent wine tasting tour.
Helle_B, Jul 2022
I think it was a great wine tasting tour. The guide was exellent and the farms and tastings very very good. Only 7 people in a small van also made it easy and enjoyable.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Dear Helle , thank you for dedicating your time to leave us this wonderful review. Was nice to serve you and we hope to have you back again and experience more tours together. Best Regards My tour
Great friends, great wine, and great guides!
DEBORAH_W, Jun 2022
Daniel and Fabio were excellent drivers, expertly handling the winding roads. Daniel provided us with interesting details about the region, its history and the wines. Both of our wine tours were lively and engaging with large pours of excellent Brunello! We even were able to make a stop for pictures in the beautiful Val D’Orcia! Highly recommend this for your next stay in Tuscany!
