Our group of 4 had a fabulous day in Montalcino with Franco! We picked up some cheese and salamis in a small shop, and then visited our first winery. We toured and sampled wines, honey, and olive oil. From there we had lunch in a fantastic little restaurant, with the two sisters working in the back of house and the... More

It's been a number of years (the website made me click a date when i visited but the furthest option they gave was feb '14...my trip was in '06) since I hired Franco for a day tour in Tuscany, and i still can't recommend him enough. My trip was a 14-day visit to Italy, and after spending a day with... More

If you are in Tuscany, do yourself a favor and spend a day with Franco as your host! This was my first time in Italy and Franco's wine tour of Montalcino was THE highlight of many highlights of our trip! My sister and I took the Brunello wine group tour...there were 8 of us...and from the moment Franco picked us... More

This was the 3rd time my wife and I have used Franco for a wine tour. Great English speaker. Franco knows our tastes now, and tailors our tours to our particular wine tastes. We always get full days with Franco, which always includes lunch at fantastic out of the way places that are extremely authentic Italian, and would be almost... More

My husband and I were part of a group tour. Originally we thought we would want to do the private tour, but we had so much fun meeting all the people in our group and enjoying the wine tasting experience with them. Franco was very thorough in his explanation of the wines and you could tell his knowledge of wine... More

We booked a private tour with Franco and we were extremely happy with our wine tour near Siena. We were travelling with two 4 year olds but didn't want to miss out on the experience, and Franco did everything he could to make sure we all had a very pleasant experience. Two car seats were arranged, and initially we were... More

My mother and I went on a Brunella wine tour with Franco and it was such an amazing experience. We truly felt a part of the Tuscan wine country. I agree with the other reviewers in that Franco takes you to places you would never get to on your own. He has built relationships with the wineries that allow guests... More

We took Franco's Brunello di Montalcino wine tour in Tuscany and we had the BEST day. It was one of our favorites out of our entire honeymoon. Franco has such passion for his tours and for wine and you feel it from the minute he picks you up at the door of your hotel. He treats you like family for... More
