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

What a wonderful day we had! Franco picked us up in his van at 9:15am at our hotel. So convenient that we didn't have to go into Florence or Sienna to pick up a tour. We found Franco to be kind,very hospitable , accommodating and very knowledgeable about wines, olive oil and practically everything Tuscan. He also has a great... More

I contacted Franco on very short notice to go on a wine tour. He was very kind and accommodating. Franco responded quickly and was easy to communicate with. He arranged for my friend and I to join a half day tour. We visited two exquisite wineries and learned so much about the making of wine, history of Sienna and Tuscan... More

I really enjoyed our wine tour of Montalcino with Franco Fadda. Franco is very knowledgeable about Italian wines and wine growing regions and is a pleasure to listen to during the drive through the Italian countryside. The tour included a stop along the way for coffee, two wineries and lunch with wine included. The wine tastings were private including only... More

I can say that this was the highlight of our 14 days trip in Italy! Worth the money, firsthand interaction with the owners of the winery and we got to taste the wineries reservas just because they know Franco. Franco is easy to talk with, very honest and genuine, he has carefully hand picked the wineries and we were so... More

My friend and I were very happy that Franco worked so hard to make arrangements to include us on his 1/2 day tour on such a short notice. The tour was very educational and fun. We learned quite a bit in a short time and visited 2 wonderful wineries. The tastings even included a white wine which surprised me for... More

In June 2014 my husband and I took a second wine tour with Franco Fadda and we were just as impressed with this tour as the previous one. The first tour with Franco was to Chianti producing wineries with our daughter and son-in-law. Though our first tour was in 2011, it is still a frequent topic of conversation--it was the... More

Our day with Franco was the best day of our Italian trip. We saw Franco's great reviews, and we booked him for the Brunello tour. It was absolutely incredible. Franco spent the entire day immersing us in the local culture -- Small towns, beautiful landscapes and breathtaking views, fresh cheeses, amazing olive oils, fresh breads, and of course the amazing...

We spent few days near Siena and wanted to attend to a wine tour, but we had only two possible days that worked for us and we were doing last minute searching and read some great reviews on Franco's tours. As we were running on a tight schedule we gave a call to Franco himself and despite of great customer... More
