This was a five star tour. It was exceptional in every respect. Franco, not only knows the wines as a sommelier, but also know the wine makers that he introduced us to. We received detailed personalized tours of the vineyards and the wine making process and enjoyed four and five star wines with the winemakers themselves. We have seldom spent... More

We were in Siena in early September and after reading the fantastic reviews Franco had we decided to book his tour. We ended up being the only couple on the tour that day so it was extra special. Franco promptly picked us up at our hotel and took us to 3 wonderful wineries. We loved the wine we tried so... More

We (and a lovely couple from Ecuador) spent a day with Franco doing his Chianti Classico wine tour. We visited 3 wineries and a castle in the Tuscany countryside. Franco was very professional, informative and had a great understanding of the history and wine-making of the area. The scenery was amazing and the visit to the castle a highlight. We... More

If I could give Franco 10 stars I would! We had such an amazing time on his Montalcino Brunello tour. The wineries were very unique and offered a very personalized tour and tasting experience. Between winery visits we had one of the best meals I had in my entire 4 weeks in Italy accompanied by more wonderful wine. Franco is... More

You will always remember your wine tours with Franco! He knows everyone and he knows wine. He lives on a farm outside Siena and he picked us up at our Siena hotel. Franco shares the history of the region, he knows wine country and the winemakers, the cooks in the kitchens, the shop owners. Prepare for a full day tour,... More

A few days before departing Siena, my wife and I and another couple travelling with us decided it would be fun to have a tour of the Chianti region with a guide. We contacted Franco, who promptly responded to our email confirming a tour for us with Angela. From the moment we met her, we knew this was a great... More

We booked this wine tour with my fiancé and two couple friends - we did the Brunello Dal Montalcino tour. Franco picked us up at our hotel in the morning and we went off in his well air conditioned van. One of our friends mentioned his love for beer so even though we were on a wine tour, Franco stopped... More

My husband and I spent 12 days in Italy recently and Franco's wine tour (it is so much more than that!!) was definitely a highlight. He picked us up at our hotel and then we picked up 7 more people - who were all together but never made us feel like outsiders. We started the day by sampling several different... More

My wife and I had a fantastic day with Franco. We did the Brunello di Montalcino tour. Neither of us had ever really heard of Montalcino before; I'm not sure it's that well known in the UK. In any event, Franco was the perfect host balancing an encyclopaedic knowledge of the subject matter without boring anyone. We finished the day... More

My husband Marcus and I did the Montalcino wine tour with Franco today on Wednesday, October 8th and it was wonderful!!!!! I could go on and on about how fabulous the day was from start to finish. Both of the wineries Franco took us to were run by individuals who were friendly, accommodating, generous, and knowledgable. We sampled delicious wine... More
