“The highlight of our honeymoon in Tuscany!”
Reviewed November 5, 2009

The wine tour was fantastic!!! Donatella was not only friendly, funny, and courteous, but really gave us V.I.P. treatment for the entire day. Right away, she made us feel very comfortable, and really treated us like old friends. She was very knowledgeable about the Chianti region, all the different wineries, as well as various shops in the area (such as chocolate, cheese, oil and vinegar). Donatella also helped us with plans that we made for the following day, for she was kind enough to contact the place we were going and figure out some of the travel arrangements for us (we didn't speak a word of Italian). She really helped make the trip truly unforgettable!

“A Great Day”
Reviewed November 5, 2009

My wife and I were so impressed by our tour with Donatella. Her passion for the region is great as is her knowledge of wine and the wine-making process. From the beginning to end the whole day was fantastic, whether due to the variety of vineyards visited, the fantastic lunch, or the breathtaking scenery. We never would have been able to experience anything like it without Donatella's guidance. We can only give the very best recommendation to anyone looking for a guide of the region.

“Just fantastic...”
Reviewed November 1, 2009

Donatella was the perfect guide- knowledgable, enthusiastic and completely professional. She picked us up in our hotel in Sienna and we spent an entire day visiting wineries and touring the Montalcino region. She even drove us to our hotel in Florence at the end of the day. Too bad we only had 1 day to spend in the region. I would absolutely recommend her for anyone traveling to Tuscany.

“Awesome Day in Tuscany!”
Reviewed October 23, 2009

Thank you Donatella for a wonderful day! Kerry and I feel like it was one of the best parts of our honeymoon! Our day consisted of visiting 3 winerys. The first was a very small one that was doing its grape harvest. Since Donatella knew the family, we were welcomed with open arms. The whole operation of this vineyard was family run...they only hired some temp workers for the 2 day harvest. The mama gave us meats, cheese, and EVOO. With this and the 2 other tours, we learned about the Brunello wines that are famous in the region. We also leared the difference between Nobile wines and Brunello wines. We are more of a fan of the lighter, easier drink Nobile wines.

Other events that we did on our day was to visit a very small bakery at which we sampled about 10 different cookies and cakes. We had lunch with Alberto at his unique restaurant. He only prepares what is available that day...since we were the only appointment, he prepared a great lunch just for us. The food was excellet and Alberto was a unique and wonderful guy. There were peacocks walking around! We then went to a family run Peccorino producer where we had a nice spead of cheese of various ages. This allowed us to understand how the tastes of the cheese turns over time. Donatella picked fresh figs of their trees and shared them with us. The location was gorgeous and i really enjoyed it there.

Our arrangments for meeting with Donatella were simple...she picked us up in Cortona and dropped us back off in Cortona. In between she drove us all over the map. Her ride is a modern tourning type van and is very comfortable. Plenty of big windows to marvel at the landscape. My photos of the countryside do not do it justice.

Donatella was great because as the day went on, we became friends. Her english was great so there was no problem communicating. I thoght it worked out perfectly and i would definitly recommend her to you.

Ciao,

“Worth EVERY penny!!”
Reviewed October 21, 2009

My grandmother and I had the most amazing time with Donatella - she was a fantastic tour guide and took us to the most amazing places in Tuscany - everywhere we looked was a postcard view! The wine and food were AMAZING and she even went out of her way to take us to some places that we hadn't originally planned on going - it was a fantastic day that my grandmother and I will remember forever - words cannot describe what a pleasure it was spending the day with Donatella. She treated us like family and we 100% recommend her to anyone wanting to see the best sites in Tuscany!
