My husband, my 20-year old daughter and I had a wonderful day! Our guide Illaria was charming and funny and was very knowledgeable about the gourmet foods and wines from the region. She met us promptly at the Church in Siena in her clean black Grape Tour van and we headed out. We learned about what goes into making the best chocolate, how fine balsalmic vinegar is made and we visited the quaint medieval village of San Gimignano. We dined on a delicious hot lunch featuring saffron at an organic farm, and learned all about how the delicate spice is grown and harvested. Best of all, we were taken to an amazing family-owned organic winery/vineyard - Cappella Sant' Andrea. The scenery was breathtaking and all of the steps from the planting of the vines to the bottling of the wine was carefully explained. We especially enjoyed a special wine tasting of their red and white wines. We came away with a lot of information and pleased with having tasted so many wonderful things. We would definitely recommend this tour to everyone!

While in Italy my husband and I did the chianti classico and castle wine tour. It was amazing. Our tour guide Ilaria was an extremely knowledgeable, funny and personable tour guide. The different vineyard and farms we visited where picturesque. Our lunch was exquisite. All in all it was one of our favorite things we did on vacation and the day went by too fast. I highly recommend this tour company to everybody.

Our guide, Ilaria, was most knowledgable about wine, food, and their production. Fantastic wines. Delicious foods. Most beautiful scenery.

We did the Montepulciano day tour and had a great time. IIaria, our guide, was fun and very knowledgeable. We tasted delicious pecorino cheese, had a big savoury lunch and drank some great wines always in good company. It was an awesome experience. Thanks again IIaria!

Went on this tour with a group of friends. The wine school is in the old part of Siena, which is very charming. We learned some basics about wine and then departed for some tasting and lunch. The lunch was incredible! Especially the roasted pork and potatoes. Of course the wine was great too. We all had a really nice, relaxing time and would recommend this trip to others.
