    Fabulous tour with Daniel, his knowledge and humor were unbelievable. He made our tour so special. Highly recommend Tuscan Escapes for your tours.

    Our tour guide Elio did an amazing job. Lunch and the wine were also very good. We saw 3 different castles and had a great tour.

    Bravo Danielli. Very informative and entertaining tour. Danielli has an intimate relationship with the vineyards we visted and deep knowledge of winemaking and Toscano. Fantastic tour.

    While this was our first time taking a guided wine tour it was not our first wine tour we're from the SF Bay Area, close to hundreds of wineries. It was a fabulous tour. We tasted wine, olive oil and incredible food. We met owners, makers, growers. We learned about the industry, the history of wine in the Chianti region, visited enchanting small towns, touched the vines and the soil, saw artwork, villas, estates... The five of us were overwhelmed with charm, information, food, wine and the richness of an informative tour guide. We'll be back.

    An excellent tour of the Chianti region. Our guide, Daniel, was absolutely terrific. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. The small size of the tour was very imitate.

    We loved this tour so much we booked another one to a different wine region the very next day. My husband and I wanted to do a wine tour but had no idea where to go and driving your own car in the Sienna area is no piece of cake.
    We got online and found this tour through Viator.Com . It is an all day adventure from 9:30am to 6:00pm. We met our guide at a church in Sienna called San Domenico Basilica. We were greeted by Elena, our guide. There were 8 people booked for our tour but there ended up being only 6 of us. We rode in a spacious van that easily accommodates 8 plus the driver.
    On our way to our first destination, a huge castle on the hill, Elena stopped far below the castle for a picture opportunity. We were awestruck by the beauty of the Tuscan valley in all its glory.
    Next stop was wine tasting at Castello di Briolo, same name as the castle above it. You can ship wine back to the US most states, anyways from this winery.
    We were then on the move again through winding hills and amazing scenery on our way to the small town named Radda. There we strolled through the narrow streets taking in the wonderful atmosphere and doing a little souvenir shopping.
    By now we were all starving but not to worry. Once we arrived at the winery of Ristoro di Ama we were treated to the most delicious lunch. From a impressive menu we chose the roasted pork, gnocchi, and salad. It was all amazing and the people who ran it were most gracious. We had 3 wines to taste here. They also ship wine to the USA.
    Our last stop we visited the winery of Il Poderino. Here we were given a tour of the wine making area. We also tasted 3 wines here and the owners were also so very hospitable. Again, they also ship wine,
    From here we ventured back to Sienna to end our most delightful tour.
    Elena, our guide, was great! She was delightful from start to finish and really made this tour top notch. We would highly recommend it to anyone coming to this area to visit.

    It was a wonderful trip. Daniel the guide was very knowledgeable about vine making and we lernt a lot from its basic chemistry up to the vine politics. He also showed us the beautiful Chianti region. On in all it was a great experience.

    Outstanding day with a great tour guide who knew how to get around and the luncheon was magical at the castle. The wine tasting was exceptional! The small group environment was perfect and we had a chance to meet some very nice people!

    Great tour led by an exceptional guide. We met in Siena at San Domenico and rode the minibus out into Chianti for a fun outside tour of Castello Brolio and its vineyards. We enjoyed tastings at two wineries and had lunch outside in a beautiful Tuscan setting. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and kept it interesting all day. Highly recommended!
