This tour was absolutely perfect. Visiting Cortona and Montepulciano was wonderful and the tour guide was one of the best I have ever encountered. She was very informative and kept our small group engaged for the entire day. Enjoyed the tour of the Contucci Winery and meeting our host, Adamo, who is quite the character! Lunch at the farm was a delightful experience. Will definitely take another tour to Tuscany on the next trip to Rome!Reviewed by: Linda, December 2013
Traveling to two mountain villages in Tuscany gave me a flavor of old Italy. Our guide was excellent and gave personal attention to any concerns of her visitors. Restaurant hoteliers were not friendly and came across as we were a bother. Also, dessert, sodas were extra costs. Not acceptable.Reviewed by: Katherine G, November 2013

This tour was not at all what we expected. This is more like a bus ride to Cortona and Montepulciano, with not so good food samples. My husband and I made the most of it, because we were already there but in hindsight, we should have enjoyed our last day in Rome walking around. There was no food tour. It was just a sampling at the restuarant prior to lunch, with three pieces of bruschetta, a piece of cheese, and a tiny glass of wine. If you're looking for a food tour then I would recommend the Rome Food Walking Tour. The wine stop in Montepulciano was a brief 30 mins. Overall this was not worth the time or money.Reviewed by: Michelle L, October 2013
