Excellent tour guide, she was worth 5 stars. If you're looking for lots of great wine and gourmet food you may not find it here. However, the vineyard was beautiful and our guide was amazing and made the night wonderful. We were in a small group of around 8 people and we all hit it off perfectly. It made for a nice way to enjoy the culture and learn about wine. I know I'll never buy a bottle of chianti Classico without a black rooster on the label!

We had a brilliant time. Our guide Matthew was knowledgable and extremely helpful. The two wineries we visited were lovely and the lunch afterward was some of the best food we and #39;ve tasted. Also had good company with the other couple that joined us. All in all was an unforgettable experience

What a wonderful experience. We were the only 2 on the trip so essentially it was a private tour. Matteo was a fabulous guide, very knowledgeable in the area and about wines. We were first brought to Castello Vicchiomaggio where we were given a tour we actually saw the owner of the winery! and had a nice lesson from Matteo on the nuances of Chianti wines, then it was off to Nozzole Winery, where again, it was a private tour through the winery with a wine tasting of 2 of their Chiantis and the evening ended with a dinner at the Castello San Polo where we had dinner in a mediaeval castle. There was a super full moon of the Tuscany hillside. No better way to celebrate my birthday. Even if you don't like wines, I would highly suggest this tour.

What a wonderful tour! We were a very small group and Serena was our guide. She was spectacular! She was overflowing with information and patiently answered all of our questions. She was so passionate about her job and it really reflected on how she cared for us throughout the day. The ride up to the winery while bumpy was beautiful. The dinner was excellent and of course the wine tastings were outstanding. Not to mention all that you learn about the grape harvesting, the wine making processes and of course selecting a true Chianti in the Tuscan region. I felt like an expert when the evening was over. I would highly recommend this tour. Be sure to ask for Serena. She really made the day even better.

Perfect trip from beginning to end. Easy to set up. Easy to connect with the group and host. Simone was awesome! So fun and knowledgeable. Had a wonderful afternoon and have been recommending Viator to everyone since we returned from our trip. Thank you Simone!!

Great tour! We visited three wineries and had a nice dinner at the last one. Our tour guide Matteo was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the wine making process and answered all of our questions. We had a very nice bus driver, Elisio, he also knew a lot about the wineries and area. I highly recommend this tour! Make sure you bring your camera because you will have opportunities for some really nice photos!
