    Great half day

    One hour there, one hour back and I was miserable with motion sickness from the winding Tuscan roads and hills. Be careful if you get motion sick easily! Besides that, the tour was great and we enjoyed it very much. Good information and great wine tastings. I would highly recommend!

    The first winery was good and fun, the second one lost power but only in the tasting room. Then they took us to a castle that was basically closed and said come back in a half hour and there was nothing to do there but sit around and wait, such a disappointment.

    Such a great tour! The wine and food were amazing, the guides were incredible, and the views are spectacular!

    First off the tour operators tried to pull together several small groups who spoke several languages on the same bus. The leaders seemed overwhelmed and were anxious to get us back. The tour left Florence late, which left us racing thru the second wine tour and then to see the Fortress at night. Only 25 minutes to walk up long hill and stairs and back on the bus. Felt sorry for the elderly couple that had a tough time walking...the operators didn't seem too care...only about getting us back on the road. On a positive note, the first winery was fantastic and the owner who led the tour and tasting was really passionate about what they do. The wine was great as well. Next time we will use a different source to schedule wine tours. Of the three tours booked for our trip, these tour guides were NOT well prepared and didn't engage with the group.

    Went to 2 wineries in Tuscany. Both were good-plenty to taste and great information on each. Snacks were provided at both. We ordered wine and vinegar and had shipped home from Fattoria Lornano. About 6 hour trip in all. Last stop at Castle-1/2 hour only to view-dusk by then and quite a hike to the top. About 40 in the group.

    Excellent wineries with knowledgable experts at the two wineries explaining their wines and olive oils. Visit to Monteriggioni was good but short and the climb to enter the City was too much for elderly. Not sure what can be done about that since tour went 5 1/2 hours anyway. Tour guide on bus was nice but not very informative. With a bus full of tourists and a relatively long ride he could have talked more about the region, mabey some fun facts or history. Overall good value for the cost, and enjoyed the experience.

    Where to start? Hotel pickup was late. Whole bus waiting. Late start and instead of getting back at 6:30 as expected, it was closer to 9 p.m. Thus missing all the beautiful scenery on the way back because it was dark out. Thank goodness that was not the night I had my theater ticket. I took two of your tours, and would NEVER take another. They were rushed, impersonal, no sense of fun or adventure. Just let's get this darn thing over and done with. Thanks for the chance to review - I hope this will spare others.

    The tour started an hour late and we arrived back in Florence two hours later than billed for return. Wine tastings wee rushed and snacks unsubstantial and served on plastic plates. The only good feature was the fabulous tour guide who spoke 5 languages

    Tour left 1/2 late. First winery was excellent. Very informative. Delicious wines. Second winery was nice, wines were good there too. Stopped at a fortress was very dark and we really couldn't see anything. Was a 10 minute walk up then you had 10 minutes in the fortress and then a 10 minute walk down. Only the gelato place was open. Tour is longer than the mentioned 4 hours. Was 5 1/2 hours from start to finish.
