I have been to a lot of wine tastings but this had to be one of the best! The guide was informative, entertaining and VERY well versed on the subject matter. Whether you are an experienced wine expert or new, this tour is a "must" when you come to Italy.

I have never taken a food and wine tour before but will not hesitate after this wonderful experience. Franchesca was such an informative guide. We sampled coffees, truffles, wines, balsamic, gelato...and the list went on. Everything was wonderful and it was so nice to have a little "insider" information. I highly recommend this tour. It was just 4 of us... More

Livio explained clearly & "tastefully". The company was fun and the wines/cheeses/salamis/olive oils tasted were excellent. Well worth going!!

Franchesca gave a wonder, insightful tour. Her knowledge of wine and specifically Montepulciano was enjoyable and will provide memories that will last for years.

A great experience and a "must-do" when in Florence. Yes there are a lot of steps but the views from the top make it all well worth it, even in the rain! The queues of people that hadn't booked were ridiculously long, so if this is something you want to do, book in advance and "skip the line". Valentina was... More

We had a wonderful time with our guide, Valentina when we walked up the Duomo in Florence! She was most knowledgeable of the church and Florence in general. The walk up isn't bad at all. Valentina stopped at all the floors and gave us information which allowed us time to stop and rest. It wasn't at all what we expected... More

WOW! I'm not going to lie to you... I was nervous about the steps. I'm a typical FAT American and I didn't know if I would make it or even fit. I DID!!! and it was worth it. I'm not going to say it's not hard. It is. But not so hard you can't do it. There are places to... More

My wife and I attended the cooking school and had a wonderful day. The class was fun, as well as informative. In the end the food we food we prepared, ultimately cooked by the staff, was fantastic. Paul and Julio were fun and entertaining. We would definitely recommend the class.

This is a cute little Enotica next to the leather market in Florence. Livio is extremely knowledgeable and pair some great local wines with regional meats and cheeses. Just a word of warning - don't do what I did and start enjoying the food or wine when it is served - Livio will describe the wines and foods and discuss... More

My family (mom, brother, and myself) had booked a small group tour in July, and in our favor, the other portion of our group tour did not show so we had our wonderful tour guide (Valentina) to ourselves. She was PERFECT! My mom was nervous about the stairs, and she was so supportive and compassionate, and beyond that she provided... More
