  • This tour was a good way to spend an afternoon but frankly the driver, a gentleman named David as I recall, drove so badly it was difficult to enjoy the Tuscan views. The two vineyards we visited were wonderful with knowledgeable staff and lovely wines to sample. We saw a castle and walked around the small town, but there wasn't an actual castle tour.

  • Small comfortable van, great guide and beautiful countryside. Worth the time it took to get to the first stop

  • Loved everything about the tour. Both wineries were informative and generous with tastings. The castle visit was short but great, just enough time to get a feel for the village. The driver was great. Recommend

  • Awesome time!

  • Our driver Adel was great. And Marco from the winery was great. The Cianti Classico and truffle oil were both amazing. I like that we got to see a small winery and was able to easily ship them back to America, so I didn't have to deal with putting wine bottles in my luggage. The castle was cute. The winery we went to was called the Famiglia mazzoretti I think. Small, charming with a nice family. And then we went to another winery. I'd go again for sure. Bring your camera! Thank you Adel the driver!

  • A beautiful afternoon in Tuscany! The driver was pleasant and friendly. It was lovely to explore Montereggioni and Castellina, and the vineyards were also a treat. We learned a lot about Chianti and have a new appreciation for the wines.

  • Vittorio was a great driver! He picked us up from our hotel and there were only 4 people in our group, which was perfect. We visited 2 castles and 2 wineries. Great picks for the wineries where we received a personalized tour of the winery with taste testing. Learned a lot!

  • Poorly organized, driver who thought he was a comedian, did not even go to the castle.

  • Excellent guide/driver! Very informative and able to answer all of our questions. The wineries were incredible. Wine was amazing! Would recommend to anyone wanted to spend a little bit of time tasting wine. Not overwhelming or time consuming.

  • Visiting the small towns was beautiful and the wines were fantastic. Our tour guide Francesco was very friendly and knowledgeable.
