This tour is one of the best decisions of my life. Franco seemed to know exactly what we wanted and was quick to anticipate our needs. Had two great winery tours and a fantastic Lynch. I never worried that we were going to have a bad time because Franco was just amazing. You won't regret this trip! Simply am amazing... More

Everything was perfectly executed with Franco. Upon e-mailing him, we received a response within 24 hours, and it was very easy to schedule a tour based on our schedule. Best of all, we found the price very reasonable for what we were getting (an all afternoon...or day...if you want) private, or near-private, tour of one of the most famous wine... More

A perfect day in the company of an extremely professional and eminently personable guide. Every element of the tour exceeded our expectations, and our family could not have enjoyed ourselves more. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending this experience to anyone interested in learning about the culture and countryside of Tuscany. It was indeed a privilege to spend time... More

My family had recently the chance to book a tour with Franco Fadda. We all come from California and we have already experienced tours in our country, by ourselves with Californian companies, but, let me tell you that the quality of tours he organize are more professional and personal. Franco pick us up at the front door of our hotel... More

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
