It was an afternoon spent wonderfully in the Tuscan hills. Despite the rainy conditions, our group of 7 had the best time touring a medieval castle and tasting the wine that was made there, as well as the best olive oil we have ever had. Our guide was amazing! Very knowledgeable about the region as well as how to successfully present the information to her group. She knew when and how to tell stories and when to let us sit back and relax. The next day we randomly saw her in Pisa and she came up and spoke with us, it was so sweet and serendipitous! We would definitely do this over again if we could, hopefully on a sunny day next time!Reviewed by: Anna G, February 2014
AMAZING Tuscany tour. It was pouring rain, and it was still one of the most awesome wine country tours we've ever taken. A castle winery in the rain, little plates of salami, parmesan and bruschetta. A knowledgeable guide who not only told us what we were seeing in Tuscany, but also on our way out of Florence. Little added side trip to Greve for more wine tasting and a visit to a meat/wine shop. MILES of hanging prosciutto. This trip is a must.Reviewed by: Laura P, February 2014
Great wine and great food...also olive oil ..really enjoyed the trip.Reviewed by: street, January 2014
Price was perfect and the tour was proper length. About a 40 minute bus ride out to the wine country. We toured a castle where they talked about wine and olive oil harvesting and processing. Then went into a tasting where we had three wines and some snacks (which were a great choice- toasted bread with olive oil, cheese, meat) . It was a nice amount of wine to taste- at least 1 glass of each depending on how many we're drinking at your table. The last dessert wine and cookie was a hit with my wife, but to sweet for me. We had 2 kids with us and it was very accommodating. The kids were behaved so it was not a disruption to the others (someone else mentioned kids were a problem and that did not distract us as you can see) . Trip back on the bus was a bit. Ore lively as you can imagine. We also stopped at a small town to do so e more tasting or touring. This was free time on your own. I highly recommend this for some nice time to the wine country at the right price and length.Reviewed by: Matthew C, January 2014
Really enjoyed the tour our main tour guide was lovely and informative. The castle was amazing. The guide at the castle was terrific and I really enjoyed her commentary and I loved hearing about the castles history and its inhabitants. The Wine was superb and the food was delicious. The country side was spectacular . Well worth the time and money..Reviewed by: Deb G, February 2014
