My fiancé and I took Franco’s wine tour of Montalcino in early April 2014. This experience was more than just a tour and tasting of the local wine and vineyards, Franco introduced us to the true Tuscan lifestyle. Franco grew up right outside Siena so he was able to explain its history and development over the last few decades. The... More

Our November Tuscany wine tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy. Initially we had a little trouble confirming the tour with Franco but the arrangements went without a hitch and Franco (who speaks very good English) provided an interesting & educational day in the beautiful countryside. The Brunella vineyards we toured each were unique and the wine spectacular.... More

We were a group of 7 persons from Hong Kong, including 5 elderly, hiring Franco for a one-day guided tour in Tuscany in 2013 in April. We visited family wineries, olive oil and vinegar factory with great quality and small quantity in production, beautiful and small hilltop village, as well as a lunch with authentic local cuisine. The whole itinerary... More

Our winery tour with Franco was the highlight of our trip to Italy. He truly loves what he does and is so knowledgeable about wine and the region itself. We stopped at two beautiful wineries, one of which we got to hear about wine-making from the owner herself! Franco brought cheese to pair with the wine and made a few... More

We had such a great time on this tour. Franco was a perfect balance of graciousness and fun. We really liked the other couple on the tour, saw 2 wineries, the countryside, and stuffed ourselves with some the best food and wine we've ever had. We're still talking about how much fun it was.

My wife and I took the Brunello tour with Franco last week. It was the most memorable and enjoyable day of our entire trip in Italy. Franco was very knowledgeable about the wines and the region and a great guy to spend the day with. He really knows his stuff. The wine tastings were very good and the tour was... More

Franco's tour far exceeded our expectations. His knowledge and passion not only for wines but the Tuscan region gave us a true local experience. Highlights of the day included a visit to a local cheese and meat store with products fresh from the farm, two wonderful wineries (one was an organic wine producer), olive oil tasting and a fantastic four...

This wine tour is not to be missed! Franco picked us up promptly at our Siena hotel and were off on our Brunello wine tour. Our first stop was a small cheese and meat shop with food directly from the owners nearby farm. The store was filled with local people all very friendly. Then we were off to the first... More

Having lived as an American in Italy when I was in college so many years ago, I can say my most memorable times were with local friends taking us to places off the beaten path. This tour felt much the same. Franco is like an old friend taking you to his favorite places in an area where he has lived... More
