    My wife and I enjoyed the experience. If you want a hardcore wine tour, this is not for you. But if you want a tour of Of beautiful Tuscany, see San Gimignano and Montalcino, and check out a couple wineries, this is perfect.

At september 14 morning the bus pick up us (was late like 30min, they arrived from Florance, i guess the traffic was crazy) Had a wonderful day with our tour guides- she was soooo informative and spoke 3languages- first stip Montalcino. Drinking wine, had a little.... little! snack. Than heading to Pienza. Try some pecorino there,goes around the town(we had like 40-50 minutes) :( and travelling to our last stop to Montepulciano. Over all, trip was fine, good weather, nice wines (take food with you or prepare yoursef to eat quick at these towns’ reastaurants) Thanks for everything!

Great company although we didn't know each other; driver-guide (Carlo) courteous and helpful. visited two different wineries but with excellent hospitality and excellent wines. Clear presentation. Close-knit and fun group. San Gimignano beautiful and fascinating, short time but only 90 minutes. Montalcino also a beautiful town adequate time for the visit.

I don’t normally consider myself a tour person, but this one was great. Saw some beautiful countryside, Franks some great wine, and had a bit of time to wander and shop in montalcino.

I loved this trip! It was very worth the money! I wish there was more wine tasting however. I was expecting to visit several vineyards, but only wen't to one.

Excellent wine tasting in Montalcino!!!! Lucia’s knowledge of wine and history was enlightening!!! Best tasting ever.
