You’ll also have a chance to try a Chianti Classico, a regional favorite made from grapes grown between Florence and Siena.

This is a great tour! We went to 3 wonderful wineries and learned a lot of information. The people were very friendly, wines were great and the snacks were delicious. The views were awesome so we got lots of great pictures

Absolutely recommend this wine tour! We got to visit 3 Tuscan wineries within an hour of Florence. It was so fun seeing the Tuscan countryside. Since we went in off season, it ended up just being myself and my husband on this tour. Our guide was amazing, we learned so much about the Italian culture.

Nice way to spend a day

Nice tour. The wineries were all beautiful. The wineries each gave a tour. By the last winery, it was essentially the same information in a different location. The wine tastings only included red wines. Lunch was good, but not great. We thought there would be more info regarding oil making, but there were only a couple of tastings. The guide was personable and friendly, but more of a driver than a guide. There was no history or information given during the drives about any of the areas we visited or of Florence itself other than what the wineries provided. This tour was definitely for adults, but they made accommodations for our kids.

Overall the tour was great. We learned high level wine making and saw great views of Tuscany. I would do it again if we could have had a few more glasses of wine throughout the tour but that depends on how much each vinyard wants to share with you.

Disappointing
Gurleen_S
, Feb 2020
We were really looking forward to our tour but were severely disappointed. Our driver was prompt and the car was comfortable. Our first winery visit owner was very sweet and friendly and did her best but it was clear that we were guinea pigs to test if this was a good spot because our driver/tour guide was taking pictures the entire time as it was her first time there. The entire tour was spent telling us about the winery owner‘s family. The location was beautiful but definitely not as advertised. The second stop was also severely disappointing – it was not really a tour of an olive oil mill operation, it was a closed down warehouse with a bottle of olive oil on a stool for us to take a sip of and the driver popped in a video we could have looked up on you tube. The last winery was completely cut out without telling us and we were just taken to lunch, the lunch was fantastic and the Villa owner where we had lunch was very very welcoming. During lunch our tour guide was taking selfies and drinking wine even though she was supposed to be driving us back.Definitely not worth the money and very disappointing to have an experience like this through Viator . We have used them before and have never received such a miss matched experience. I believe the experience depends on the driver/tour guide and ours was definitely far below expectations. Her name was Veronica.

The guides Marta and Claudia were great and explained all the history behind wine and olive oil making clearly. We were a small group of 6 in one van. Everyone was friendly and the wine tasting was amazing. If you are looking for a quick escape from florence into the countryside with lots of wine to drink, this is highly recommended.

A Local outing very near the Florence area.

This tour was the best one we did in the Florence area. The guides met us right where and when we were told they would. The group was SMALL. Only 14 or 15 of us total, with only 7 in our comfortable and clean van. The sites were CLOSE. No more than 30 minutes out of Florence, but far enough out to be in the hills and true country of the area. Our walking was absolutely MINIMAL, which was a real treat for us, considering that some of our other tours involved MILES of walking. The guide was very knowledgeable of all the sites and even participated in some of the talks at the tour sites. The olive farm and olive oil mill was well maintained and had a mix of old and new equipment and operating procedures. That made for an interesting look at the operation. The wine tasting portion of the tour was very well done, with some in a quaint tasting room that was a part of the storage area and another part in what seemed like a bottle storage area. Both settings added to the charm of the small winery location. Super views of the surrounding areas from these hilltop locations. Lastly, the meal was excellent. Served family style. Plenty of GOOD and FRESH cheeses, breads, oils, meats, and other antipasto dishes. The main course was well presented and filing. We were not rushed. We were not in a restaurant that felt over crowded, but rather in what felt like part of a family estate. Great views of the surrounding country side on the SHORT ride to and from the start point in Florence. If you want to see real Italy, and you don't want a lot of driving or walking, then this is the tour for you. We left about 10 AM and returned about 3 PM and were easily able to do the Accademia Gallery that same afternoon.

Our tour guide was great fun, friendly and shard a lot of information on the surrounding area, the wine and olive oil. The wineries, we visited had beautiful scenery and amazing wine. The lunch was a great way to get to know the other guests on the tour.

We had Matteo has our guide...we had such a fabulous time! He was SO well versed and very punctual. Only 8 went on the tour (4 of us) and 2 additional couples. We all bonded very well and although we went on an unusually chilly and overcast day—we were catered to with jackets and hospitality—and AMAZING photo ops! We would ALL highly recommend if you are taking a trip to Florence to ensure you indulge in this vineyard tour!

We went on this tour on our honeymoon and it was only ok....the first winery we went to was amazing and beautiful with great wine. The olive oil farm and second winery were ok but felt very rushed. We tasted wine standing by the door. The saving grace was out good group. We then had dinner which wasn’t all that good honestly. It was an antipasto and penne (not 3 course as advertised) and small plates for 6 adults to share. Again it felt rushed to leave. I wouldn’t recommend this particular tour although our guide was great.

Our tour guide, Guiseppe was great! When I booked the tour, I thought it would just be the 7 of us in a van which is what I wanted in case one of us got car sick as our group tends to.... When we got there, we found out we were with other people so I was upset but the wineries we visited were not far from Florence and because we were 12 people, we had a mini bus which we did better on than a van. Plus the other people we met were so much fun and made the day. First winery was 25 minutes away, then 10 minutes to a olive oil place then 10 minutes to another winery then 5 minutes to lunch and 20 back. It was all perfect. I thought we would be on the road for much longer. We had our kids with us and they had fun too.

My wife and I took this tour and we had a phenomenal time. The guide gave us a tour of the Vineyards which included the history and the meaning behind everything. This was a classy tasting, not a fall down drunk booze-fest.I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone.
