I took a Chianto Classico wine tour with Franco while staying in Sienna, and had a really enjoyable, relaxing day. Franco is friendly, personable and flexible and it was wonderful to feel neither rushed nor pressured. I hate tours which seem designed to get you to purchase overpriced tourist items, and there was none of that here. Franco met us... More

I learned about Franco's tour through family, who had fantastic things to say, so I decided to splurge and do it when I was in Siena. It was a fantastic trip! Franco treats you like family and really makes sure you get the most out of the experience. He picks you up from where you are staying and drives you... More

Franco gave us an unforgettable experience on his personalised wine tour. From cheese tasting at a local deli, to wine tastings, to an unique Italian lunch! Franco even went the extra mile to drive to a local pharmacy while we where busy tasting wine, to buy my husband, that had ear infection at the time, ear drops which was much... More

This was one of my favorite days on European trip!!! Our family of 3 did the Chianti Classico Wine Tour, this included my husband, 15 year old son and myself. What an AMAZING day we had with Franco Fadda! He picked us up our hotel, right on time and started the tour with giving us knowledge of the Chianti Region,... More

Franco did an excellent job showing us the sights of the Montalcino region of Tuscany. He provided a look into the operations of two wineries and vineyards and was quite knowledgeable when asked of questions regarding the region in general, and all in some of the best English I've heard in the 7 days we've been in Italy. Through his... More

The Franco Wine Tour was one of the best experiences of my Italian getaway. Franco is an incredibly hospitable and kind human being who made me feel like I was on an exclusive and private tour of Tuscany. His knowledge goes beyond just the wines. He really knows the soil and the climate and the delicate needs of the delicious... More

2 august 2014 I joined the Chianti Winetour. I can recommend it. Franco takes time for his guests and offers good service. He knows a lot about wines and the country. His English is very good. I would book this tour again :)

I felt comfortable touring with Franco after his prompt attention and reply to emails. Once in Siena, Franco picked me up promptly at 9:00 for my Chianti Classico tour. There were 7 in our group and all were captivated by Franco's knowledge of both the wine and history of the area. What impressed me the most is how much everyone... More

Franco's Wine Tour experience was fantastic. He was very receptive to any dietary needs or requests to stop for pictures. He stopped for bread and cheese in town and allowed us to try the cheese and ensure that we liked it for the wine tasting. He bought all the food, including a bottle of water on our request to have... More

We traveled to Tuscany with four of best friends and stayed at one of the most beautiful villas outside Arezzo. We contacted Franco Fadda to arrange a tour of the different wine regions of Tuscany and from beginning to end we had the best time. His knowledge of the region and the wineries is excellent plus his great personality made... More
