The family also booked for this trip was a no show - but the tour guide did not let this stop us and I ended up on a private wine tour. Very knowledgeable guide. I recommend this tour when visiting Florence! It is great to get outside the city and taste the culture! Also wonderful views of the wine country throughout the drive and at the wineries visited.Reviewed by: Jennifer C, January 2014
Fun way to spend a day. Views were lovely, wine was good, and it was interesting to try the different ages of cheeses, or types of honey, along with tasting the wines.Reviewed by: Heather J, January 2014
My husband and college-age son had a fantastic time on this tour. Our guide (Jon Luc - sp?) was delightful. His passion and knowledge for wine and the lifestyle were infectious and made it interesting and fun. The setting was stunning and wines delicious. We liked the small size of the tour, and it was fun to meet new people. We met honeymooners from Brazil, a family from Bolivia living in India and some fellow Americans. We spent 10 days in Rome and Florence over the Christmas holiday. The trip was fantastic, and our day on this tour was the favorite day for all of us.Reviewed by: Katherine D, January 2014
This tour was my favorite. I was by myself with 3 other couples from around the globe sharing our love for wine and the Chianti region. The tour guide was very passionate about his work and the food we had for lunch at the second vineyard was over the top. I highly recommend this tour!!Reviewed by: Walter M, December 2013
Fabulous tour!Reviewed by: Patricia B, November 2013
This tour was a highlight of our honeymoon. Mateo was a terrific guide and the two vineyards were terrific. We met 4 other great couples and the entire day was very informative, laid back and fun. We not only tasted great wines and olive oils, but enjoyed great food as well. Thank you!Reviewed by: GENA C, November 2013
We took this tour Monday, October 28th with our tour guide and Sommelier, Mateo. We had such an amazing time and the scenery was breathtaking!!! We visited 2 beautiful wineries, had informative tours at both sites, tasted many delicious high quality wines and olive oils, and finished the day with traditional tuscan lunch. We also had a great time with the other people on the tour (6 people total including us). Highly recommend!!

October 31st 2013Excellent day. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very patient. Picked up on time...a small group with 3 other people.
The first tasting was very good, although we were tasting wine..I have never tasted such wonderful olive oil. The second tasting and lunch with the Baroness was excellent. Cheese and honey..a first. Lunch was bread with oil and garlic, pate, mixed meats, cheeses and an introduction to truffle oil. The wine flowed..each glass better than the one before and each wine described brilliantly by our guide. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the typical Tuscan countryside..sipping good Chianti. Bought bottles of wine and oil from both tastings and each were packed in boxes that went into the suitcase and arrived home safely. Would highly recommend this trip if you want to escape into the countryside.
This was one of the BEST parts of our visit to Italy!!! Very knowledgeable guides and such wonderful food and wines. We would do more of this on our next trips.Reviewed by: Edward A M, October 2013
The wineries we visited in this tour were absolutely amazing. They are beautiful and historical. Great tour if you are a wine lover and want to know more about it and of course, try different wines. Our guide was very informative and friendly. I'd definitely recommend this tour to everyone.Reviewed by: Sandra, October 2013
