This review is long overdue. I visited my daughter who was spending spring 2011 semester in Florence. After a few days in Florence, we wanted a couple days to experience touring in the chianti region and staying in a local village bed and breakfast where we could just wander around the town by foot. As we were travelling alone, and only had two days to spend, I didn't want the hassle of renting a car, getting lost, and finding our way alone. I found Enzo's chianti insideand out online, and after a few brief email exchanges, I knew it was going to be exactly what I wanted, and it was even better than we could have hoped for.
We stayed in Enzo's hometown, a midieval walled village known as San Donato. Enzo found us the perfect bed and breakfast place (Del Giglio) with it's own beautiful backyard, wine cellar, living room, dining room and 2 bedrooms, with a wonderful host and great breakfast. Enzo pointed out the local restaurants (2) which were a couple blocks from the apt, and even made sure they knew we would be coming (including ordering ahead for us) so that we received the VIP treatment..
Enzo tailored the touring for 2 days to meet our needs. I wanted to visit some wineries, cheese farm, San Gimigiano and some other small towns. Everything was terrific. We had some great private wine tours (3 in all), each with tastings, light food and VIP treatment. We had a lunch at Dievelo winery which was a highlight of the trip as it was so beautiful and we were so well cared for.
I highly recommend Enzo's touring company, and I found him to be very reasonable price wise as well, especially compared to what I would have paid to do everything on my own witihout a guide.. We actually travelled in march, and really lucked out with beautiful weather, and just before the busy touring season, a great time to travel.
Enzo also recommended our bed and breakfast where we stayed in Florence which was also lovely. He also picked us up in florence and then took us to the Florence train station for our next stop, making it so much easier for us.
I would be happy to answer any questions, but you will not be disappointed.
