What people say about this tour on Tripadvisor:
"What a brilliant tour! Just a short drive from Florence to Chianti I had some of the best wines of my life and certainly one of the best wine tours I've ever been on. The wineries you visit are stunning and run by gorgeous locals, the food is delicious and tour guide Daniele was relaxed, knowledgeable and entertaining. Great opportunity... "
" Great way to top off my tour of Italy. Couldn't have been better. We got some lessons in wine tasting, saw some of the country side in Tuscany, learnt some local history, got to see San Gimignano and met some great people all in one day."
