    Great wine tasting trip in picturesque surroundings
    Lovely trip to two wineries close to Firenze. The first winery was at a beautiful estate in picturesque surroundings. Tasty wines and olive oil. The second winery had a great guide who took us through their wine making process, and we go to taste the wines with some local ham and cheese. The guide on the trip was very friendly and entertaining- and we got to experience some beautiful scenery as well. Highly recommended.

    Tasty wine and the view, sublime
    The meeting point was very easy to find. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The first winery we stopped at was a wealth of information on both wine and the differences in the wine making process in the region. Their wine was top notch and the balsamic vinegar is the best I’ve ever had. The second winery had the most delicious white truffle olive oil. You get to see a lot of countryside, experience the roots of Tuscan wine, and it is a very comfortable trip.

    Wonderful and Welcoming guides!
    Antonio and Lorenzo were absolutely wonderful! I loved the tour, and it made our stay in Florence memorable! It was very easy to find them and they were very welcoming. Lorenzo was a wonderful guide and gave us a lot of history. I also appreciated how he gave us a 20 min warning before the bus left which allowed us some time to take pictures or purchase items if we wanted to. Both vineyards were absolutely beautiful, they never pushed products on us, but of course we got some because everything was delicious and we’re happy support their business. Would definitely 100% recommend and they are a treasure.

    Great tour out of the city.
    This is a great trip, it takes you out of the city into the beautiful Tuscan Countryside. Our guide was Leo and he went above and beyond to make sure you were enjoying the tour. He is very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Both vineyards visited were great and the hosts were informative. The wine tasting was great along with the olive oils. The second winery also offered cheese and hams.
    Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience – highly recommended.
