My wife and I took a wine tour with Franco from Siena. We've been wine tasting in lots of places from Napa to Champagne. The mileage always varies depending on the guide and of course the group dynamic can make or break the day. No doubt, this one was a great day. Very friendly tour group and everyone got on... More

Franco's wine tour in Siena was truly the best wine tour we could have imagined. We went to two tucked away wineries and tasted several different Brunellos. He picked us up in the center of Siena, drove us into the countryside(you will see the most beautiful views you've ever seen!) and gave us a great history of the areas and... More

I got in touch with Franco after I found his reference here on TripAdvisor and requested a wine tour for the following day. I had contacted several wine tour operators with no luck, but Franco was very accommodating and agreed to take me out for a half day trip even though there was no one else scheduled to go. Franco...

Franco's tour was one of my favorite experiences during my recent trip to Italy with my husband. The winery tours (three!) were all fabulous - the wine was wonderful and we got to actually meet the wine makers at two of the vineyards. The lunch was HUGE and completely delicious (and more wine!!). And it's hard to beat the views... More

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

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
