This half day was so much fun, I definitely recommend for anyone who would like a relaxing day in Tuscany wine country! My family and I had a great time and our tour guide was great. We met a lot of nice people, too!
Most wonderful tour! Our guide, Constantino, was terrific and carefully explained each winery to us. He was fun and thoughtful. Although rainy, our family loved seeing the Tuscan countryside, and our busdriver, Giovanni, stopped in a few spots so that we could take pictures along the route!
A good variety of wineries and tastings, and a quick-easy way to see the tuscan region. However it was a large tour group being bussed around... if you dont mind large groups then it covers a good variety in a short time one afternoon
The instructions say meet at 2.45pm, our group of 6 arrived there at 2.30pm and about 5 minutes later a man appeared with a placard and told a member of the party to get down to the end of platform 16 go down the ramp as the bus is leaving in 3 minutes go now. When I asked him to repeat that, he said I have already told this person now get down there the bus is leaving.
We are all in our late 50's and quite honestly he expected us to run down the lengthy platform, I thought he was the rudest person I had come across. However once we got down there the ticket girls were fine and nobody was going to get left behind.
The trip itself was fascinating and tiring, yet very informative. Although repeating everything twice after English ie Italian and French meant we were missing sights as we passed them.
However after all that tasting the many wines with the nibbles was a fab experience and well worth the price of the ticket. Please do go on this trip as the Vinyards are quite amazing along with the landscape surrounding them.
Very fun. Left around 3:00 PM and returned around 8:30 PM. Toured two wineries and had a chance to stop and view a castle. Would recommend if you're only in Florence for a few days and want to spend an afternoon wine tasting.
My family and I had an amazing time on this tour. We enjoyed the first winery best mainly because it had food, olive oil and balsamic vinegar! All of which were amazing! The scenery during this trip was breath taking. Definitely worth the money!
We had a great time on this tour! You had 2 separate wine tastings and the opportunity to walk around the castle in Monteriggioni. You also get to see the beautiful Tuscan countryside, which is gorgeous. You will enjoy yourself so much, you may come back with a few bottles or even a case of great Chianti wine. Highly recommend, especially if you have limited time in Florence/Tuscany.
