WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
Amanda_J
, Sep 2021
Had to miss this tour due to itinerary changes and travel difficulties in our trip. With no cellular service, we were unable to communicate with the tour guide and team and unable to cancel our reservation/ request a refund. The tour guide/Viator team moved our reservation to the following day, without our permission and responded via EMAIL only that there was no refund available. No communication available with the team and no flexibility with reservations- WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

Our driver was very knowledgeable with information on the way from Florence to Tuscany. Both wineries did a wonderful job explaining their wines and the wine making requirements and process.

The wine tour with Daniele and Antonio was great! The meeting location was easy to find and Daniele talked about the region and interesting facts about the wine we were going to experience the whole way to the first winery! The second winery had amazing views and a wonderful meal that paired nicely with the wine. The group was small and a great opportunity to meet others visiting the area. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence and looking to experience some amazing wine and see a bit of the country side.

Beautiful scenery
Anne_D

I actually had booked a sunset tour that was cancelled last minute so I was scrambling to find something to replace it where I could experience some wine in the Tuscan hills. Unfortunately I am not a fan of red wine so it wasn't a perfect fit at the first winery stop but the scenery was stunning. The second stop featured wine more to my taste and the setting was beautiful. My only critique is the acoustics at the second stop made it almost impossible to have a conversation. Nonetheless it was a lovely, smaller group with a fun guide and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend some time in the country outside Florence. The transport vehicle was clean and the driver was very cautious. I'd definitely recommend taking this tour. Especially if you like red wine!!!

Hello Anne_D and thank you very much for your wonderful words about the scenery, the setting, the smaller group, the fun guide, the transport vehicle, etc. Obviously, we are sorry to hear you are not a big fan of red wine, but being the 2 wineries both located in the Chianti Classico area, famous for red wines, primarily made with Sangiovese, the tastings are focused on red wines, as clearly specified on the tour details, (Wines tasted: reds typical of the Chianti region ( normally Chianti Classico, Riserva, Super Tuscans, Gran Selezione, etc.); sometimes, depending on the time of the year, the production, etc., you also have the chance to taste some rose or withe wine, as a plus. Thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again, maybe for a private tour focused on withe wine. Best regards, Prestige Rent staff.

Clear expectations and a relaxing day
Nicole_L

Perfect experience. Very good expectation setting (precise timing and what will happen). Daniel was engaging and enthusiastic about the wineries. The cadence was set up well. The first winery has a lot of education about the wine and then the second one had even more natural beauty around and you drink 4 more wines and relax and have snacks and look at the astonishing landscape.

Dear Nicole_L, thank you for the great feedback. We try really hard to provide the best possible experiences at Prestige Rent here in Italy and are really happy to hear that you enjoyed it! Obviously, we will share your comment with Daniele. Hope to see you soon, Warm regards, Prestige Rent staff.

Efficient, friendly, non-spectacular wines
Peter_L
, Sep 2021
Nice bus, friendly guide and beautiful wine yards. A very effiecient tour, perfect for a long weekend in Firenze. However, the actual wines and appetizers served were not spectacular in any way.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear Peter_L, thank you for your appreciation about the bus, the wine yards and the tour. We are sorry to hear, “wines and appetizers were not spectacular” and a little bit surprised too, because as you can see from the hundreds of previous reviews, the quality of the wines, the olive oil, the balsamic vinegar, the snacks and all the tasted products are greatly appreciated. Obviously as we normally do, we will take your opinion into big consideration, and we kindly ask you to contact us directly, in order to receive extra info and be more specific, when we will forward your comment to the wineries. Thank you again for your time. Warm regards, Prestige Rent staff.
