    We had a nice afternoon! The bus was very clean and our driver Mario did a fabulous job navigating the narrow and windy tuscan roads. Our tour guide shared with us some facts as we left the city but otherwise was more of a chaperone. The first tasting was very picturesque, lovely host and location, however after we left we noticed we didn’t receive one of the four wines to be tasted. The short stop for lunch in Greve was nice, the recommended pizzeria was yummy. The second winery was the highlight- we tasted not only delicious wine but also truffle olive oil and aged balsamic vinaigrette. Yum! Overall a great experience.

    Amazing views!!!! Cannot recommend this enough! I was in shock the whole time with how pretty the scenery was. And the tour guide was super nice and explained a lot about the town as well. It was fun to visit the towns on the way to the winery. The bus was comfortable. Highly recommend

    We loved all the aspects that the Tour covered, the only thing I would recommend is that the guide, who was excellent, be a little more demanding with the schedule for the meeting point of the participants because on two occasions we had to wait for the same people for more than 20 minutes, which meant that we could not visit the last Villa.
