My husband and I were staying just outside the walls of Siena and decided to do our first day in Tuscany with this Tour. All I can say it was the best decision we made. Franco is amazing and so knowledgeable. He created the most amazing tour day unlike anything we have done before. Early we set off with Franco... More

Franco is simply the best guide. Our tour started with a fun surprise tour of a barley coffee roaster, where we sampled some coffee and learned about roasting. Then onto the first winery & olive oil producer, Patrizia Cencioni (Solaria); we toured the cellar and fermentation room, and then sat for a tasting served with fresh olive oil & focaccia,... More

We booked with Franco at the very last minute. However, he was very prompt with his replies and even helped us change our tour type the day before with no complains (we switched from chianti to brunello). Our tour was nothing short of amazing, we thoroughly enjoyed both wineries visited as well as lunch. The families living in these wineries... More

Franco was very prompt responding to our booking request. He picked us up promptly as scheduled in a very new and nice van. Not only was Franco very knowledgable about the family owned wineries and their products he made sure we were very well fed. Delicious bruschetta and antipasto prepared by Franco was excellent. The luncheon prepared by a chef... More

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
