Our private tour was amazing! Our guide, Alejandro was excellent. He spoke great English and provided us wonderful information and background throughout the tour. We booked the tour with only a couple days notice and it was on a Sunday yet VIATOR organized a personal tour of one of the wineries still (most are closed on Sundays). We got a tour from the actual wine maker where we started with a few white wines, did the tour, and then sat down (outdoors) for more wine, cheese, and meats. The dinner at La Tappas was fabulous. Would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get outside of downtown Florence and truly experience some of the Tuscan region!

This was a last min booking. We were in Florence and thought it would be great to get out into the countryside for the day, and my husband did not want to rent a car! So, the night before we're looking online for a tour, of course everything was booked up, and then we came across this tour. It was a little more than we wanted to spend, but we thought why not, and boy am I glad we did. We were met at our hotel, right on time, in a beautiful clean, comfortable car by our driver, Guido Laschi. I cannot say enough great things about him, his English was impeccable, he was knowledgeable about the area, he showed us things that we would have never found on our own, it was like touring around with an old friend, he even made dinner reservations for us at a restaurant we had been dying to eat at, but unable to get reservations for. He definitely made our trip, and the money we spent worthwhile.
