my boyfriend and i had such an amazing experience with this wine tour! duccio was our tour guide and did an AMAZING job explaining the history both in english and italian. i saw many reviews that complained they didn’t get enough time at each destination. duccio allowed us 25-30 minutes at each spot which is honestly more than enough. you must keep in mind that they fit in 5 destinations within a 5 hour period with transportation so the timing of it all really works. i would highly recommend this tour to anyone! food and drink are not provided (besides the wine and a small snack plate) so ensure you bring a water bottle and snacks or you can buy it at the many stops. we had such a wonderful time, thank you duccio!

Had a great group, bonded with your guide and two other passengers. Tour guide was very personable. I would say they first wine tasting needed some context as they just gave us two pours and that was it. The second was much better, though wish we could have seen vineyard.

We had a wonderful half day excursion with our guide Francesco who was so knowledgeable and friendly. He made our trip to Tuscany a delight. Superb vineyards with excellent wines, panoramic views of heavenly countryside, great company of Americans who kept us all laughing. We would recommend this trip with Francesco. Thanks for a great time.

Good tour- time heavily weighed on 2 wineries
Shelley_S
, Mar 2022
Bulk of time, over 3 hrs spent at wineries which were good, but 15 minutes for castle garden, and then negotiated up from 15 to 20 minutes for town of Monteriggioni. Other 2 people on tour had no interest in the garden or town, so it was sped thru, but I was interested in them.

Dear Shelley, thank you for your feedback, we're so sorry that you don't like so much this tour. This experience includes 2 wine tastings in 2 different Tuscan villages, these require time to know and taste the wine of this amazing region. Thank you for your feedback we'll try to improve the part about the castles' visit.

No information while We were driving . Totally silent car ride . The wineries were ok. They seemed to be more interested in selling wine rather than our experience

We really enjoyed this trip. Vincenzo was a great guide, we left Siena promptly and had a wonderful experience. The first stop at the castle was superb and we had several photo opportunities. The other passengers were very friendly and Covid-considerate and we all wore masks inside the bus. The two wineries you go to are both "classic" Chianti producers but are different enough from each other that the experience at each is unique. Would definitely recommend it!!

Francesco was our driver and guide and he was fabulous! Very informative and did well answering all our questions! The "castle" Monteriggioni was so cozy and an eye opener! Then we visited 2 vineyards in the area. Great tour and I felt we saw and learned a lot in a very short amount of time.
