This was a very good tour. From the time we met our driver, Steffano he was so informative and thoughtful. This tour was worth every cent. Starting at the 3 vineyards, tasting 13 different wines, several Olive Oils, Truffle Oil and Balsamic Vinagre, the group all had different likings dependent on each individual palate. The beauty of this group was that we all intermingled and has such a good time. Thank You again Steffano, you are a great driver, guide and even better person, GRACTZIE é CHOW

Very comfortable ride in small bus with great views. Our tour guide was Raffaele who gave us just enough information about Florence, wine, and the countryside without talking too much. Enjoyed all the wine and wineries. A great lunch! Andreas was an excellent driver too. The scenery at the last winery was absolutely gorgeous, but I understand they don’t always go to the same places. The stop in Greve was very short and not worth it, but other than that a perfect day. Highly recommend.

This was a wonderful tour through the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. We stopped at three wineries, but they were well-spaced. There was bread and olive oil at all of the wineries and a delicious lunch at the second one. We also had a short stop (about 30 minutes) in the town of Greve where we had free time to stroll and shop. The tour guide Rafaeli was wonderful and the bus driver was highly talented. I highly recommend this tour.

Stefano was a great tour guide and we went to amazing wineries! Would recommend to friends.

Highly recommended! Leo is a great guide and I enjoyed every single moment of the tour!
