This was a great wine tour outside Florence. The departure location was a little out of the way but easy to find with their instructions. The tour guide Violeta was engaging, funny, and knowledgeable and we learned a LOT about Chianti wines on the ride out there. The two vineyards we visited had great wines and really beautiful views. I'd recommend this to wine-tasting newbies and wine lovers alike. This is Chianti country so all the wines were red except one, so maybe not recommended if you don't like red wines. The "snacks" offered at the second winery were more like a full lunch. Delicious local meats and cheeses, and great olive oils.

John the driver and Alex the guide were great. We learnt so much and drank the best wines. The views were outstanding, a great day and well worth the admission!

It was awesome. Great in autumn. The vineyards glow in all colors. Guides were super nice. Wine was great and the food was a treat.

everything left on time… ..well organized …… enough time to visit the places… ..comfortable trip… ..

Had a great time on the bikes seeing Lucca. Highly recommend.
