Stefano is a highly knowledgeable and friendly guide who is passionate about sustainable tourism. He is a sommelier and handpicked three wonderful wineries in Chianti Classico for us to visit. We did a gentle hike through the incredible countryside (about 10kms total over the whole day) which was interspersed with wine tasting and lovely food. We met some wonderful winemakers, who are clearly passionate about Chianti Classico and their wines. Wear good walking shoes, bring a hat and be prepared to have fun; it was an unforgettable experience.

A wonderful experience! Luciana was a wonderful guide, thank you very much! We absolutely recommend this as a tour - comprehensive and fun! We really appreciated being in very small groups (we were 2!) And the really wonderful wineries, with the owners who transmit the passion and love of their wine and the territory. Thanks Luciana, we will be back soon

I really enjoyed the tour not only because of the different tasting ( one is located in a really beautiful villa ) but for the small amount of people it's made with at the same time - 1 up to 4 according to the guide. Hence you have the possibility to get to know the guide and ask more questions to the different winemaker

We had a wonderful escape from the touristy Florence centre with the lovely Luciana! The tour was very well organised while still leaving some time for impromptu stops for gelato! We had a small group of six people which was perfect. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a picturesque escape from Florence!

Excellent driver

Simon was excellent driver and allowed us to customize our activities and events. This is not so much a guided tour as there is no information imparted during stops, but is a prsonal driver and comfortable Mercedes van
