Great insight and access from Franco. He showed us all the inner workings of these family owned and run wineries and very insightful discussion along the way. Great food and wine. Would recommend to family and friends. Thanks Franco!

We went with Franco Fadda and another couple from Boston on June 3. What a wonderful 11-hour tour we had with Franco. He is so knowledgeable of the entire area and he understands, and explains, the wine-making process from start to finish. We toured two local wineries not open to the general public so that made our day extra special.... More

Quick summary: Franco is fun and knows everything about the area, its wine, and food. A tour with him as a MUST if you are in the area. You will learn a lot, your taste buds will thank you, and the memory will last a lifetime. We had an absolutely amazing day in and around Montalcino with Franco. Our first... More

Franco's tour was fun, informative, friendly and packed full of experiences you can only have in the company of a local. He picked us up from our accommodation and was extremely hospitable all day - even ensuring that dietary requirements were met. Free WiFi in the van, great selection of wineries and food, and the tour even went 2 hours... More

in my opinion was very good. My wife and I really don't have much experience with wine besides drinking a glass at wine at dinner ... We were looking to learn something on the tour and thought we did about the wineries Franco brought us to. The scenic drives were amazing, the wines were excellent... The only complaint I had...

Witty & outgoing, Franco picked us up at our hotel in Siena where we headed south to Montalcino. We stopped along the way for Franco to pick up cheeses & meats he had ordered for our picnic of snacks to enjoy at our winery stops. We navigated the little streets of Montalcino, stopping to do a little shopping & to... More

My wife and I arrived in Tuscany for our honeymoon. We stayed in Montepulciano. This was our first time in Italy. We set up a private tour with Franco which would include 3 wineries and lunch at a local chef's home. Franco picked us up in the morning right in the Piazza just outside the apartment we were staying in.... More

This was our second tour with Franco and he didn't disappoint. I learn something new at each winery and Franco finds some of the best wineries to visit for tastings. Truly and enjoyable day I look forward to doing again.

First time visiting Italy, and I knew I wanted to see Tuscany and the amazing wineries (and what better way than to be driven around with a personal tour guide?!). I did some research and found Franco via all of his great reviews. He did not disappoint!! He picked us up at our hotel, and brought us to three wineries... More

I cannot rave enough about this wine tour and more importantly our tour guide, Franco. From the moment he picks you up (wherever is most convenient for YOU!), it feels immediately like you are being welcomed by a good friend. Franco has an intimate knowledge of not just wine, but also the local wineries and the winemakers. On this type... More
