Full description

Immerse yourself in the nature of the Florentine hills on this unique tour. Enjoy a transfer from Florence city center to an equestrian center on the Chianti hills, where you will be paired with the best equine companion for you. After a quick riding demonstration, head out on a 1-hour ride across the Tuscan countryside, among vineyards and olive groves. Afterwards, drive to one of Tuscany's most celebrated and historic olive oil estates. Learn more about ancient and modern olive oil production techniques and how the estate combines both tradition and innovation to create the best possible extra virgin olive oil. 

Learn how to sort out quality olive oil through a guided discovery tasting: sample the cold-pressed, organic-certified extra-virgin oil and appreciate its intense perfume.

At the end of the tour, savor a typical Tuscan lunch with fresh local products, cheeses, bruschettas, and coldcuts, all accompanied by Chianti wine. Enjoy your meal in the rooms of the estate or outside on the terrace while immersed in the Tuscany countryside.

We enjoyed this excursion so very much.! The hoses were well trained and the views on the trails were spectacular!! The olive grove tour was so interesting and the olive grove is beautifully maintained. We enjoyed a light lunch and purchased a bottle of olive oil!!

Had the best time riding through the Tuscan hills and had wonderful guides. Not too strenuous, was just fine for a first time horseback rider. The olive oil tasting was interesting and fun and lunch was lovely. A great laid back activity.
