Franco picked us up at our hotel for a small group tour and a fantastic lunch. We had the opportunity to learn about the Tuscan region, see beautiful hills, towns, and people. He took us to two winery's, a local deli, and a local restaurant. Our day was full of exploring and interacting while visiting two well respected winery's. We... More

We booked an afternoon half day wine trip with Franco, and as we were the only people on the tour, it made for a very personal experience. Despite the terrible weather we really enjoyed the trip around Montalcino, and both of the wineries we visited were excellent. Franco was knowledgeable and friendly throughout the day.

My husband and I finished our 9 day tuscany tour with a day of wine with Franco. We had a fantastic time! He has a lot of energy and he was willing to include us on a tour at the last minute. We visited two wineries and had a fantastic lunch. We would definitely use him again!

My 2 daughters and I went on a wine tour with Franco in early April 2015. We were treated like special friends and treated to much information about the culture of Italy as well as some EXCELLENT food and wineries. The winery proprietors made us feel so welcome and so special and so did Franco. Thank you again Franco for... More

I didn't read any of Franco's reviews (my girlfriend did and booked a tour last minute) so, I didn't come in with any preset expectations. I must say I pretty well enjoyed my time with Franco and think the tour was well worth the € we paid. We toured two medium-small wineries in Chianti - met both the head wine-makers... More

Franco was awesome. He told me when I was booking the Brunello di Montalcino tour that I wouldn't be disappointed. He was right. Of the two weeks my family and I were in Italy, our time with Franco tops the list of things we did. Franco is passionate about wine, and it shows. The two wineries he took us to... More

We are so glad we booked a winery tour with Franco Fadda! This was easily the highlight of our two-week trip to Italy! Franco is such a fun, friendly guide who wants nothing more than to give you the best experience possible. He speaks very good English, and was a helpful translator between us and the vineyard owners who spoke... More

We had a great tour through some of toscanys amazing wineyards and winetastings, summer 2014. Learned a lot and had a great time with Franco. Will recommend his tours to everybody who likes wine and want to get to know toscanys wineyards and tastes :) Best regards Christina & Eirik, Norway.

My family and I really enjoyed the Brunello wine tour. Franco was very informative and took us on a tour that we will never forget. He made us feel like one of the locals with each stop we made. I would take another one of his tours in a heart beat.
