    This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. Our tour guide, Angelica, was just about the nicest and friendliest person I have ever met. Our horse back riding guides were incredible too. The views from the horse trail was amazing. They don’t just have to sample a quick sip of each wine. We got about half of glass of everything we were trying. After all the wine tasting, they feed you. And they really feed you! And of course, serve you more wine! This was a great tour. I will warn though, if you are someone that gets car sick... the drive to and from in the van is pretty brutal. I recommend taking a motion sickness pill prior to leaving to avoid any sickness. Other than that, this was an amazing tour and I am so happy I went!

    Great way to spend an afternoon in Tuscany!

    The tour was fantastic, Daniele our guide was very informative and friendly and our small group of 8 was a good size for the activities. The horse riding was really fun, even for someone who has never ridden a horse before and the wine and lunch at the end were delicious. Highly recommended this tour!

    This was an amazing time, with great food, and great service!

    We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The horse back ride is through a seperate company and the guides for it speak very limited English. However, we just looked at it as making it a little more exotic. All in all, this was a great time with excellent food and wine, and we would recommend it to anyone in the area.
