Was my first time in Italy :-)
Came across Italy on a budget for the Florence 3 days and 2 nights tour and and was one of the best tours I've had before. The tour guide Veronica was professional and fun she was always willing to answer any questions that were asked and she made the experience great. The wine experts were exciting in there delivery of knowledge made the tour really worthwhile. I also met people from different parts of the world in the tour, who were good to bond with and shared good moments with.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anybody who is an explorer and has a great interest in wine.

Fun and delicious tour of Tuscany and Siena wineries. The tour is popular, especially amongst 20 and 30-somethings. Regardless, everyone is really friendly, and you’ll find yourself meeting and speaking with interesting people from all over the world as you sample delicious bites and (some) incredible wines.

Tour begins at a meeting point in Florence where we boarded a coach for a 40 minute ride through the Tuscan countryside to the first winery. After the first winery where you’ll sample amazing whites and reds along with breads, meats and cheeses, you’ll be onto the next winery in Siena. Before you depart, you will be hard-pressed to not buy wines and Olive oil and balsamic vinegar, so plan accordingly. Second winery has a few more wines and bites and, of course, enjoyable company. The final stop is in a beautiful and scenic city atop a hill for lite dining and shopping.

Great tour. Giulia, our guide, was energetic and pleasant along the tour providing both historical and anecdotal stories. Definitely recommend this to be part of your itinerary while in Florence.

Me and my spouse had booked a day trip for wine tasting in Tuscany.

The trip began in Florence, where our tour guide, Elisabetta, gave us a warm welcome and picked us with a van. After a short ride, during which Elisabetta shared local tips and recommendations, we arrived at San Gimignano. Since it was off-season the small town was quiet. We went up Torre Grossa (great panoramic view!), had tasty gelato at the the place Elisabetta recommended and local pastries. Then we visited a rustic vineyard which had a nice view of Tuscany's rolling hills, got a short tour for the bottling process, and eventually tasted 3 local wines – all of them wonderful. Next up was a visit to a posh winery where we learned about wine tasting and tried 6 different wines. Finally, in the evening Elisabetta brought us back to Florence. Everything was on time and attentive, while the necessary COVID precautions made us feel safe. We gained lots of new knowledge around wine making and wine tasting.

Thank to Elisabetta's attitude, positive energy, humor, kindness and friendliness we had a wonderful experience and a memorable day. Highly recommended to book the day trip and to ask for Elisabetta as your guide.

Absolutely one of the best experiences imaginable. Our guide Dom was hilarious and engaging, he brought the group together and made it feel like we had all known each other for years instead of just minutes. The wineries were lovely and the tastings were plentiful! Also loved stopping in San Gimignano and having free time to explore the city. The bus was nicely air conditioned too which made all of the difference. The friends we made on this tour will stick with us for a long time! Would recommend this to everyone!

The day before our long before booked tour I was contacted to say that they had been overbooked so we would have the option of taking a 1hr train ride (each way) instead (or cancel). Francesca picked us up at the train station in a van, and drove us from vineyard, to village, to vineyard, then back to the train station. She was lovely and tried her best yet we think she was juggling driving around other groups and was stressed for time. We ended up rushing through our last stop (and the food/wine pairings) to make the train back. We also ended up with a “private tour” which was slightly awkward for us, as we prefer to hide in a smaller crowd. Francesca did the best she could yet the day was slightly strange: slow in the beginning and rushed at the end. We’re still glad we had the experience though, beautiful places to have explored.

We had a great time of the tour with Carlotta. I should first qualify my review by saying we visited early February and there were only three of us on the tour (usually it’s a minimum of 4 but two didn’t show up) so I expect our experience is quite different to the large groups (up to 50!) in summer. At the first winery we did the tasting in a private room. We tasted 6 wines with meat, cheese, two olive oils, balsamic vinegar and biscotti with the sweet wine. It was delicious and much more than I was expecting (and generous glasses of wine). Our host Neil was fantastic and very entertaining, telling us about the wines and how to taste them. At the second winery we had an outdoor tour of the wine making and ageing process and then did the tasting on the terrace, with beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside. We tasted three wines with bruschetta. We then had about 1 hour 45 in San Gimignano - not long but enough time to climb the tower and visit the cathedral. I’d definitely recommend this tour during the winter when the groups are smaller.

Great wine tour. The host at the first stop was amazing and provided just enough detail about the wine and how to taste it. The second stop was more hands off and had beautiful views. The little city they took us to was beautiful. Transportation was nice and cool and comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Would 100% recommend doing this tour. It’s a small group of usually 8 people and you get to meet and talk to other travelers in a very laid back atmosphere. Our guide, Emma, was great. She’s a very extroverted person, knows a lot interesting things about the region and Tuscan wines. Talking about wine… the wineries we visited offered exquisite regional wines. We tried in total about 12 different wines, accompanied with local meats, cheese and bruschetta. The tour also includes olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting (spicy oil and truffle infused oil and a 30 year old balsamico). Then we got dropped off at San Gimignano and had about and hour and a half to explore the town. Amazing views. It was a great experience.

When we arrived for the tour today it was just me and my boyfriend so it was basically a private tour (post COVID means everything is a lot more quieter and difficult for the tourist industry). Emma was our tour guide she was very personable and friendly and great company along the way, making conversation and answering our questions. We visited the first winery called Torciano we tasted 7 wines , 1 dessert wine and 1 glass of bubbles (enough to feel drunk depending on if you have eaten beforehand). This was a family run winery ,the family was lovely and the lady explaining the wines to us was really engaging (although we didn’t catch her name) but she made it really enjoyable. She explained each wine in detail, the differences between each and taught you how to spell, drink and taste the wine. We also had a platter of food to eat with our tasting and we tried different products such as olive oil, truffle sauce & balsamic vinegar (the best balsamic is the best I have tasted in Italy so far). We did end up buying a bottle of the white wine.
The second winery we visited was again family run called Pietraserna and we was shown around by the owners wife. She was very informative and explained the process of how the wines were made (white, red & rose) and gave great knowledge of each process and the differences between each. We tried 1 wine of each (red, white & Rose). The views from this winery were amazing overlooking all the fields.
We then visited san Gimignano , this was a lovely little town and looks like it is stuck in the medieval times times and hadn’t changed. Emma told us where to get the world award winning ice cream and we had around 1 hour 30 to walk around (enough time I would say unless you want to visit the museums).
It is definitely worth the money and we got exactly what we wanted from the tour. Could not recommend this tour and tour guide enough.

Absolutely seamless wine tour! Veronica was extremely responsive and helpful leading up to the wine tour, even allowing our group to add on additional guests the day of. We went to two beautiful wineries on a very comfortable coach bus that picked us up from our villa and ended in the beautiful town of San Gimignano. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to do a big group tour!
