    Loved the 2 vineyards we toured. Would like to not have had the 45 minute stop (for food and shopping) as all but one store was closed and we did not need to eat but would have rather had another vineyard for a tasting. Our tour guide was delightful and the scenery from the bus, fantastico! Thank you

    This wine tour was absolutely phenomenal. The right amount of time and a great itinerary, including two great wineries and some free time in two Tuscan towns. My wife and I absolutely loved it and a big part of that was our operator Marco - he was the best!! Kind, animated, knowledgeable and funny, he was everything we had hoped for. The first winery was beautiful - some of the best Tuscan views you’ll see. The second was awesome; Niko, the winery rep, was great and gave us a really thorough run through of the wines, olive oils and balsamic vinegars we tasted. The bus was quite comfortable as well, but the wifi didn’t work, which was a drag but not a big deal in the grand scheme of things. Don’t hesitate to book this tour and make sure to ask for Marco!!

    It was a beautiful day for a trip to the Chianti region. The tour guide was informative and entertaining… and the bus driver was very good. It was a lot to cover in 6.5 hrs but all enjoyable. A little more time in Greve would be a plus!

    we loved spending the day learning about Chianti and then getting to taste the different wines in the picturesque landscape of Tuscany. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and even gave us some great tips for lunch :)

    Everyone was friendly and helpful beautiful place to visit was there for our 25 anniversary and for the money well worth wine was also the best

    There were only 2 wineries that we went to all afternoon. The wineries themselves were amazing! But the rest of the experience, not so much. We went to 2 small, random towns without any direction and just instructed on when to be back at the bus. Furthermore, when it was lunchtime, the tour guide recommended a pizza place but we had less than 30 minutes for our large group to sit down, order, wait for our meal, and eat it before having to be back on the bus. Some tables barely got their food sent to their table in a to-go box before being rushed back onto the bus. I’d recommend the 2 wineries we went to because, again, they were amazing: those hosts were so nice and informative, the views were beautiful, and the wines and snacks were to die for. However, I’d recommend you take a different tour if you can. This one was just not worth it to me - only 2 wineries in an entire afternoon.

    We all loved this excursion. Nice to get out and see the countryside. Everything is well done and knowledgeable guides. Not to mention the wine was wonderful ❤️

    My wife did this tour with a group although I booked it. Two vineyards were included the first of which she did not think was very good and the second she related as excellent. The guide although she spoke English had such a poor accent that my wife felt she might as well have been speaking Italian. It should be shredded to guides that they need to speak more slowly AND more clearly.

    We had an awesome afternoon on this tour! Very well organized with interesting commentary by our guide Keiko! She was enthusiastic with good humour and professional! Sampled some nice Chianti wines with light snacks (bread, cheeses, salami). The last stop in Castellina was beautiful walk in the historic town. Note tour starts at 1:00 and returns at about 7:30pm, a good value!

    I enjoyed visiting the wineries, tasting the wine, & visiting small towns. I enjoyed the opportunity to walk around & eat in a small town.
