Informative + Decent amount of wine + Friendly Hosts!
Lavina_H
, Jan 2022
Violeta was very friendly and pointed out historical landmarks along the way to the wineries. The staff at each winery was also very informative and answered any questions we had. The charcuterie board at the second winery was a nice touch. It's a decent amount of wine you get as well!

We are glad our Small-Group Wine Tasting Experience in the Tuscan Countryside was informative and you were happy with the quantity of wine and friendly hosts.

Great way to spend half a day in Tuscany
Allan_P

Violeta the guide and Antonio the driver were a lot of fun and made the ride too and from the owners a lot of fun. The group we had was also very friendly and we all had a pleasant time. The wineries were beautiful and the guides at both were very engaging and knowledgeable. The itinerary moved pretty quickly at both places but there was enough time for pictures and shopping at the wine shops. The wines were good but not great and they also had Olive oil which was excellent.

The tour was what was...
Elisabeth_H
, Nov 2021
The tour was what was advertised. The guide was very friendly and the size of the tour was perfect. The food was limited and mostly bread and a bit of cheese/meat. Bring snacks. My only suggestion is that the directions on how to get to the meeting point are way more complicated than they need to be. Also there was never anyone who came to the parking lot to meet us. We just happened to see the bus and walked to it. Very confusing for tourists especially for people who may not have a working GPS or phone.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Dear Elisabeth_H thank you for your review and suggestions, we always try our best and look for improvement. First, we are glad you appreciated the limited size of our small group tour and your friendly guide. And as you say and read in the description, the tour includes some local snacks (bruschetta, pecorino cheese and salami) to pair the wine with, it is not a complete meal. Second, we are sorry to read you had difficulties in finding the meeting point. In additional to the information provided by the booking platform, we always send detailed directions (picture, GPS link, description) prior the tour in order to help our customers to easily reach the meeting point. However, the meeting point is a bus terminal right in front of the parking lot, not inside: that is why your bus and guide were waiting for you along the street. We happily take your suggestion and thank you, and we’ll try to improve our direction details for our future customers. Hope to have you again with us, all the very best from Prestige Rent staff
