    This was a great tour! We went to two different vineyards and two small towns in the Chianti region and we loved all of it. We tried 7 different wines along with different foods and oils which were delicious. The staff at both vineyards were great and welcoming and at both of the towns we got extra food and drink that we enjoyed. The tour guide was great and the bus was wonderfully air conditioned. We also had a great time getting to know the other travelers on the tour with us! It was a super fun group that ended up hanging out with later. Overall a great experience!

    The Chianti Tour was a delicious change from the hussle and bustle of big cities with it’s pricy food establishments. Sorry to say this but one had to be careful not be fleeced alive . A can of Coca Cola sold at €7 is off the board ! So yes the Chianti Tour was professional , we had a very experienced driver and Anna our guide was wonderful! The two wineries we visited were great and the wines and oils and balsamic served were great ! The surrounding countryside crowned all of this ! Yes definitely recommend it .

    My family of 4 did the tour and had a great time seeing the beautiful plains of the Chianti region. Our tour stopped at 2 tasting didn't enjoyed the first stop, the other was better and really nice views of city with the vineyards. We got free time in Greve to shop and also the town of the Chianti Classico and got to see the roaster. Our guide pointed out some main historical spots and was very informative about the region. Please eat before going on the bus, you're not allowed to eat on there, you can eat when you get into the town of Greve, but then if you need to shop there will not be enough time to do both. Overall the tour was okay.
