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

We saw the great reviews on trip advisor and we contacted Franco. We are wine lovers and we wanted to a day visiting the country wine areas with a local and let me tell you that he is the right person to be with. He has good prices, my friends and family was very happy to spend a day out... More

As a female solo traveler without a car I needed to find a way to experience the wineries of Tuscany during my stay! I called Franco last minute and he fit me in two days later! Two other small groups cancelled leaving just me on the tour. Despite the fact that there is NO WAY that was profitable for Franco,... More

When we were planning our vacation in Italy, we sought out Trip Advisor for the best wine tour near Siena. We booked with Franco Fada, based on the reviews on the site. We just returned from the most fabulous wine tour with Franco! He went out of his way to give us a true "Tuscan" experience with the wines of... More

We booked a wine tour for the day with Franco's Wine Tour Experience and weren't disappointed a bit! Our tour guide, Sergio, was amazing! He picked us up at our apartment in Siena and off we went to the first winery on our stop, Poggio Rubino Winery Montalcino. This winery was amazing and the staff know their stuff! After visiting...

We booked for a small group tour but in the end it was just my daughter and me. We visited Montalcino with Franco who told us a lot about the local area and the wines. We visited two small family wineries where the families were very hospitable and informal and it was like visiting friends. We tasted quite a few... More
