Lover all of it; great guides, fun and informative. Ricardo was great, Alessio even greater—we all wanted to take him home!! Flexible about time and where we went, it was great. Monica, the owner, also helped us out a lot for transportation from our villa which was a bit off the beaten path!

Sunny Tuscany was a quality experience all the way through. The booking process was simple and efficient: you make a request online and they email back a suggested itinerary. Once you're ready to book, you submit a credit card number on a secure site to hold the reservation and then they email you back a confirmation. Note that you don't have to actually pay until the day of service. Now for the tour itself. Our tour guide was Riccardo. He was right on time and picked us up at our hotel in the center of Florence. Before we made our way out of the city, we made a quick stop at Piazzale Michelangelo. There are amazing views of Florence from here. As we snapped some pictures, Riccardo provided us with interesting facts about the city's history and architecture. Our next stop was at the Florence American Cemetery and Memorial, located about 10 miles out of the city. It honors Americans who died fighting in WWII. I didn't know this existed but it was very interesting to learn about .The grounds are immaculate and the staff is grateful that you passed through to honor those who gave their lives to our country. Now onto the wine. As we got back into the van and drove through the countryside, Riccardo gave us a tutorial on the Chianti Classico region - the history, grapes, government rules around labeling, etc. (this background would prove to be very helpful as we did the various wine tastings throughout the day). What I appreciated most about Riccardo was his ability to keep things conversational. He didn't just blast us with one-way information as some tour guides tend to do. Our first winery stop was at Casa Emma. We had a quick tour of the grounds and then did a private tasting of 5 different wines. Our host also gave us a plate of cheese and bread, drizzled with their locally produced balsamic vinegar. Nice people, nice grounds. Nice wine, too, although it didn't knock my socks off. The second stop was at Poggio Amorelli. We spent the most amount of time here, as we had our wine tasing over lunch. The tasting/lunch was outdoors on their patio overlooking the vineyards. We had so much food and wine. Our server was great, taking time to explain each wine and each plate of food. We liked several of the wines and ordered a mixed case of wine to ship home. Our final stop was to I Balzini. I'm not sure what third winery was on the original agenda, but after I mentioned to Riccardo in the van that morning that I loved Supertuscan wine, he called over to this winery and arranged for us to stop here in the afternoon. The host at this winery was very dynamic and we loved the wine here. Another case of wine now on its way to the U.S. The tour from start to finish was about 8 hours. Overall, this was one of my favorite days of our 12-day trip to Italy. I definitely recommend Sunny Tuscany if you're looking to explore the countryside.

We had THE BEST experience with Sunny Tuscany, and our guide, Massimo! He was SO knowledgable and FUN! He joked with my mom the entire time! We are still quoting his jokes because he was so funny and fun! He drove us to the town of Sienna, then to a beautiful long lunch and wine tasting at Poggio Amorelli winery (HIGHLY recommend that place too! The Mazzarini family are wonderful! Ask for Gloria!) Then we drove through the countryside and although the main center of Greve was closed due to setting up for a festival, we didn't mind. We had a blast and it was a highlight of our vacation. If you're going to Tuscany you NEED to do this trip, and ask for Massimo! You won't be disappointed! (note that I had to choose family with teens below, but we did not have anyone with us under drinking age)

We went to a half- day tour - San Gimignano and wine tasting with ‘MY TOUR TUSCANY EXPERTS’. Excellent!!! The tour guide Laninia was very enthusiastic while telling us about the history of places we visited. Wine tasting experience is unforgettable - you learn HOW to taste a wine. And of course, thanks a lot to the driver Maurizio who is an expert to drive these crazy Tuscany roads.

We had a walking tour of Florence with Riccardo, who took us everywhere we needed to go, and was able to skip the ticket line to see David. Splendid, fun days with him, as we also had him as our driver/guide in Tuscany for the Brunello wine area tour. As a sommelier, he answered our questions along the way, and took us to some great wineries!
