My sisters from Canada and I (I am from Roma) would like to thank Franco (do you have his last name?) for a wonderful tour of the Montepulciano region and vineyards. Our day began when he picked us up at our hotel at about 9:00 A.M . and we proceeded with a tour of the countryside. Besides stopping along the... More

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Italy this past October for our honeymoon. The fourth stop of Italian cities was the magical Siena. We were thrilled to spend our last few days relaxing in beautiful Tuscany. Our first night, we wen to dinner at the glorious Sotto Le Fonti. The lovey host and owner Britta highly recommended Franco... More

It was raining hard on November 10 when a shiny new white van pulled up to our hotel inside the walls of Siena and out popped Franco Fadda. It was raining, and he was already trying to make certain we were prepared for a day in the country by asking the hotel desk to lend him an umbrella. From there,... More

My new wife and I had been traveling through Italy on our honeymoon for about 12 days up until this point and were somewhat worn out. We thought that a wine tour of Montalcino to learn about and taste the legendary Brunellos would be a nice relaxing day. We were blown away by what we got. First off Franco is... More

Franco Fadda created a wonderful experience for my two friends and me. We toured an abbey, wineries, visited a couple of hill towns, ate a fabulous lunch at a wonderful restaurant. It was an all day event; Franco knew exactly where to take us to enjoy the beautiful countryside of Tuscany. Franco was very informative and gracious. I highly recommend... More

We highly recommend Franco as a guide to Montalcino area. He knowledge of region, grapes, vineyards, and wine makers is impressive. His tour was comfortable, educational and enjoyable. The wine and food were superb. The wineries he selected for our visit were staffed with very friendly people and their products, Brunello, were fabulous. Franco helped arrange for shipment of our...

We decided to play it by ear on our trip to Tuscany. Happened upon Franco's website and the rave reviews and booked ourselves on the Brunello tour (September). We weren't staying in Siena proper so Franco suggested a place we could easily park our rental car for the day and he picked us up there with the rest of the... More

Had a great tour- took us to two organic wineries that were really out of the way- would've never found them on our own. One of the owners was one of the most interesting, friendly characters I met throughout my whole trip in Italy- she really made us feel like we were right at home, feeding us wine and food... More

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
