What people are saying about Siena

Great Wine Tour to the Chianti region. Visited 2 wineries tasting 3 wines at each stop. Lots of good information about the production and the stages to wine tasting, colour, aroma and taste! Shame we had such poor weather as it meant we couldn’t be outdoors very much. We also stopped and explored the little town at our 2nd stop, had time for a coffee and cake before returning to Florence. Our guide and driver were excellent. Would recommend the trip.

Beautiful experience. For the money, I didn't think so well organized. The guide very well prepared. The wineries visited were very nice and the staff were very knowledgeable. If I were to return to Florence, it would be a tour I would definitely do!

We had a really great time and the wineries were much better than we expected. Radda is a charming town and it was a treat to be able to have some time there to wander.

Interesting hints. Enough time to linger. Individual care. Extensive knowledge of the tour guide.

Great option if you don't have an entire day to dedicate to wine tasting and exploring.
