Our day with Franco was absolutely amazing. He is such a great guy and very fun to be around. We learned a great deal about the process of making wines. He took us to a wonderful winery where we had a huge lunch that was so delicious and we were so full at the end. If we ever are lucky... More

Franco’s Wine Tour is like Italian wine itself: passionate, complex, and memorable! Touring Tuscan hillsides on Franco’s Chianti Classico Tour was THE perfect complement to our recent Italy trip, as my wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. While he shares his expertise on wine, Franco also exudes a love of Italian family customs. We visited two wineries and two... More

We had a fabulous day with Franco and three other couples on the Brunello di Montalcino tour. Originally I had been looking for a wine tour that would be willing to pick us up at our hotel which was well outside of Siena. Franco agreed to this for a minimal price- and we lucked out. As mentioned by other reviewers,... More

We were 8 women who rented a villa in Siena and had 2 cars and lists of things to do, but our best day was when Franco took us out for the day to Montipuliciano. We had a great breakfast, visited a butcher, drove through the countryside, and had the best lunch and wine tour. Franco knows the local people... More

Franco was absolutely amazing. My husband and I were looking for a wine tour that was personal and he delivered. We visited 2 amazing wineries (one of them had under ground tunnels dating back to 1200 A.D.), saw amazing sites and had an incredible lunch. Franco cares about his customers and treats them like family. This was a fantastic day... More

He also took us into Montalcino for a visit. He went the extra mile and worked very hard to make our day special. We had heard from others he was fantastic and... More

My husband and I visited Siena as part of my 30th birthday trip to Europe and went on the Chianti Classico tour with Franco. He was great! We loved him and both agreed that this was the best tour we have ever been on throughout all of our travels. I highly, highly recommend this tour for any couple or group... More

We booked on the Chianti Classico tour with Franco and had a perfect day. Franco picked us up at our hotel and we were on our way into the Tuscan countryside in no time. We visited 2 family run vineyards and met wonderful people. Some people on our tour had cancelled so we joined another small group led by Angela,... More

Franco made out trip through Tuscany complete. After hearing family friends rave for a decade about Italian wine, my boyfriend had been dreaming of tasting the illustrious Brunello di Montalcino. Franco delivered! Without planning, we called Franco on a whim the morning we drove into Siena. Not only did he call us right back, he rearranged his pick-up plan for... More

We did a daylong wine tour with Franco in the Brunello di Montalcino area and it was a phantastic experience! Franco is a very pleasant guy, knows everything and everybody in the area and is though able to adapt a tour spontaneously to individual wishes and interests. The wineries and restaurants we visited were great and interesting to visit We... More
