A wonderful experience of wine and oil tasting. Our tour guide Alex was very knowledgeable, interesting, funny and pleasant to be around. He made everyone comfortable and was very patient to answer all the questions we had. Food and wine was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The views of vineyards were breathtaking. We also loved the transporting vehicle and our driver who made us feel safe. Thank you for this lovely and totally relaxing day in Tuscany. Can’t wait to be back soon.

Our guide, Alex, was amazing! He was informative, gave us great commentary, didn't rush us and really made the day amazing. Our tours of the wineries, lunch, time to roam in Greve, all made it a magical day. One of the best we had in our week in Florence!

We visited three wineries. The food and wine was outstanding. Our driver did a great job navigating the curves and right roads to take us up and into the countryside. Alex our host for the entire trip was informative and had a great personality. My wife and I loved it. We also made friends within our group.
