      Wonderful day outside of Florence.
      We just finished our tour with Lorenzo and Alessio and it was amazing. Lorenzo was knowledgeable, funny, and had great advice and recommendations. Loved the food and wine for lunch at a picturesque vineyard. It was nice to get out to the countryside and explores these two beautiful towns. Would highly recommend!

      Fun outing that exceeded expectations!
      Jonathan (guide) and Alberto (driver—but I may have his name wrong) made an excellent team as we went on a lovely adventure in the Tuscan countryside. They brought energy and enthusiasm to this outing—which exceeded expectations in every way (except the miserable weather!) Our various stops for food and wine were well-considered and all excellent. Thank you for a lovely day!

      Tuscany Tour
      Wonderful experience. Elena was extremely helpful in arranging a tour at such a short notice. We got in touch with her at 1900 hrs and she arranged for a tour at 0900 next morning. Alessandro was a gem of person. He was full of anecdotal stories about Tuscan region. Experiencing Tuscany with him, doubled up on the charm of this beautiful country side.

      BEST TRIP EVER
      Lorenzo and Alessio were the absolute best!!!! We had out 9 year old and our 20 year old daughters with my wife and I. They were accommodating and everything was wonderful. Do NOT miss this trip if you are visiting Tuscany. Also you MUST request Lorenzo and Alessio. I’m sure you will not regret this experience.

      Magnificent day out in Tuscany
      What a phenomenal day. Siena and San Gimignano were both so beautiful and interesting, and Lorenzo as the guide was fantastic. The Tuscan countryside was also just magnificent. Alessio ably got us around , and including the wine and olive oil tasting at lunch, this was just a wonderful day out, one we will never forget.

      We loved the tour. Alessio was very informative and very attentive to us, but it really is a tour that I recommend. The food in the wine cellar was very good accompanied by some exquisite wines. Thanks to Lorenzo for bringing us back safely.

      Fun time in Siena & San Gimignano
      This tour was so much fun! I did a lot of research to find a tour to Siena & San Gimignano that excluded Pisa and that had an excellent lunch. This tour with Prestige Rent through Expedia was terrific. Our guide Francesco and driver Alessio were friendly and knowledgeable. We went to Siena in the morning when there were no crowds. Francesco explained the Palio in colourful terms, and then we had free time. Our lunch at a local farm/winery with sommelier Giuseppe was delicious. We sampled 3 olive oils and 3 wines, ate salamis made on the farm and enjoyed pasta and dessert. So good! In the afternoon we travelled to San Gimignano where we had free time and enjoyed the world's best gelato. The bus ride was relaxing. We enjoyed our international group. The time flew by.

      What a wonderful trip! Leo was absolutely amazing. He took the time to not only explain the history of the Chianti wine, but also the history of Florence. The tour itself was also so great. We had incredible food and wine. I am so glad we picked this tour. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

    Tour description is very accurate, vineyards are receiving guests by biggerish groups so it doesn’t feel exclusive but easy to chat with others if you feel like it. Wine is good and Tuscany is beautiful. The setup is a bit commercial, you don’t really connect with owners…The highlight of the trip was Eva, a ray of Sunshine very knowledgeable of the area and always entertaining us with an interesting story. She also gave a Florence city tour with stories about many topics. The price is very affordable for a somewhat generic activity which would warrant a 4 but Eva tips the scale to 5!

    I would thoroughly recommend this tour! Although at first finding the departure point seemed daunting, but we followed the directions to the letter (even though it seems like you have gone wrong walking through the alley at the help sign and finding yourself in a secluded area at the back of the station) just keep following the path round.
    Mara the tour host was very informative and gave us a full comentary on the 45 min drive to the first vineyard pointing out lots of interesting facts along the way. Ricardo was a great driver!
    At the first vineyard we were shown the acres of vineyards from the gorgeous vantage point on the patio and explanation of how the vines are tended, we then went inside for the tasting, the somelier was very knowledgable and we had bread and cheese with olive oil and balsamic and 4 glasses of wine to taste ....... we then had some minutes outside to take photos of the stunning countryside.
    on to vineyard number 2 - only a few minutes away, but a completely different presentation, again with an excellent somelier who really knew all about Chianti. This time we went to the cellars and the barrel room before the tastings. Again 4 glasses of wine (Not a tasting a full measure glass of amazing wine! ) this was accompanied by bruschetta, bread, 2 different regional chesses and 2 different local salami - absolutely delicous - we all commented how it was more food than we were expecting and enough to feel like you had had lunch! all in all it was a great morning and the whole team that provided this experience deserve credit.

    The meeting point was cleverly chosen outside the busy center of Florence. It was a bit tricky to recognize the hosts because they did not carry the red signs/flags as indicated in the description, but we quickly found them. The only major flaw with the tour was that we were promised a small group, as mentioned not only in the the title of the booking but also explicitly in the description (max 16 p.). However, our group consisted of 30 people, almost double what was promised, making it much less personal, with the Prestige rent tour guide as well as with the guides of the two wineries. The two wineries that we visited were both exceptionally beautiful, in terms of location, explanations and serving delicious wines with the stories around them. Still, the two were very different, each adding their own things to make it a perfect afternoon. The foods served alongside were delicious as well. Getting a look in the wine cellars of the second winery was especially wonderful.

    Dear Christian S, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are happy you appreciated the wineries visited on our Small-Group Wine Tasting Experience in the Tuscan Countryside. Happy you enjoyed the wines and local appetizers provided. Regarding the group size, as you can read in the tour description our tours run with 25 people. To be honest, your group was 26 people because a family of 3 people booked the wrong date and we allowed them to join the tour so they wouldn’t waste their money. We have minibusses for our small group tours, so it would be impossible to make a group of 30 people. Thank you again for sharing your experience, hope to have you back with us! Kindest wishes from Prestige Rent staff

    AMAZING experience! The driver/tour guide are literally personal photographers, willing to take so many photos with different angles at every stop. I was so pleasantly surprised to find that at both wineries they had gluten free options for my husband as well. We were able to ship wine from both wineries back home to the U.S. The shipping cost is 60-100 euros depending on how much wine you get. It came out to be about $30 a bottle, which I feel is more than reasonable for amazing Italian wine. If you’re wanting a Tuscan winery experience this is it, cannot say enough good things! Probably the favorite tour of our whole Italy trip!

    This was a great tour. Our driver was very nice and very informative (expert level). The mini bus was nice and had WiFi. I'm not sure if they go to the same vineyards on each trip. If they do the first one was great but the 2nd one was off the charts. Incredible views and grounds. Very good meat and cheese (large portion) and amazing wine. I rarely buy wine on a tour but I had 6 bottles shipped back to the states. We took the morning tour (afternoon was sold out) and it was a great way to start the day and still be back in Florence by 2:00

    I highly recommend this tour, after a little bit of an anxious start where we thought we might be able to find the pick up point we headed to The Chianti region. The guide was knowledgeable & shared loads of interesting information about the sights we passed in Florence on the way. We visited 2 lovely wineries and tasted 6 different wines, the servings were generous too. There was some traditional Italian meat, bread & cheese on offer too, enough to keep us going until we returned to the city for lunch. This tour was one of the highlights of my stay in Florence.

    Amazing time on this wine tour of Tuscany. We had trouble booking online and so called the contact number provided and somebody WhatsApp’d us immediately so that we could make our booking. Our guide was so friendly, helpful and gave us a lot of interesting information about the wine in the region. The wineries themselves were delightful. Tasted a good selection of wine and ate a wonderful selection of breads, cold meats and cheeses all with olive oil and balsamic. Highly recommended.

    This was a great wine tour to learn and taste several Italian Chianti wines! Definitely go with the small group tasting, which is ~25 people, but it was actually a great size group to meet other people. I’m usually not one to chit chat with others as I’m a shy introvert, but I thought meeting others during our wine tasting was a lot of fun! The tour starts in town and a nice tour bus with A/C will drive you up to the countryside which is about ~45 mins. We were taken to 2 different locations with breath taking views of the winery. The first stop, we were able to take pictures and then we were taken into a dining area where we were grouped together for the tasting. We tasted 3 different wines and were served cheese and bread with their homemade olive oil with truffle and a delicious balsamic. The wines were great and they are heavy pours!! Usually at tastings it is a 1 oz pour, but these were quite generous. The second stop was a beautiful vineyard and again brought into a dining area and grouped at a table with others. We had another 3 wines to taste and a charcuterie platter. It was fun getting to know the other visitors and tasting the wine. They gave us a quick tour of the winery where they age the wine in clay pots. This was the ~4.5 hour tour which i was debating whether i should do the 11 hour tour. The 4.5 hour tour was plenty of time!! After 6 chubby glasses of wine, i was done and slept the whole way down on the bus ride home! I guess I didn’t have to drink the entire glass of wine, but hey…it was there in front of me so why not drink the yummy delicious glass of wine!! For $96 / person, this was a great value and highly recommend to get away from the busy town in florence to the peaceful country side!

    Raffaele is a wonderful guide, genuinely careful to making the most out of the few hours you'll spend with him and driver Antonio in the Tuscan countryside. Many interesting pieces of information on the 45 min trip to the 2 wineries through gorgeous vineyards, olive and cypress groves. We had a total of 8 glasses of wine, paired extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and bread, as well as local specialties (pecorino cheese, olive spread, prosciutto...). The locations were absolutely beautiful, two specialists greeted us and introduced us to the wines in the two different wineries. Great for rookies as well, you'll leave feeling like you know everything about Chianti Classico wines. Highly recommend this tour if you're looking for a fun and peaceful way to discover Tuscany in one afternoon!

    Leo was an incredible guide and bus driver! He told us all about Florence and Chianti wine on the way there ! He was very funny and he really set the mood for the tour! Not to mention the man serenades you with songs while you finish up the wine tastings ! Both wineries were amazing! Beautiful properties great wine! We learned so much. 4 hours is just enough time. We are a younger couple and we didn’t want to be tied down to a 7-10 hour day like the other wine tours offered. It was the perfect amount of time!
