WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

We loved the little towns we visited. The owner of the winery was very generous and hospitable. We could see his passion in his work. He was casual, and this created a fun, relaxing environment. To us the prices of the wine and shipping was very reasonable. I believe one of the main highlights for us was the driver Andrea. We enjoyed his stories and his charisma. Totally would recommend him!

Fabio was a fantastic guide with lots of knowledge. A great tour for people who want to see Tuscany. Beautiful towns, incredible countryside and ended with a brilliant wine tasting. Highly recommend!

by Tom_E

This was a wonderful tour, a lot more than we expected. Our driver Daniel was very knowledgeable of sights, history, and wines that went with certain foods. His recommendation if it was on our to do list was Chianti Classico with a steak ❤️❤️ We highly recommend this tour and Daniel.

This is a must do if you want to see a bit of Tuscany when visiting Florence. The perfect amount of exploration and driving for a day in the countryside. The three city visit ended with a great wine tasting.

We could not have enjoyed our day more! Our driver was knowledgeable and friendly. The three stops were perfect, broke up the ride so we never felt we were in the car too long. We were lucky to be joined by a nice couple as well. The winery was lovely. It was a beautiful day!
