Piaggio (sorry for spelling your name wrongly) was a great driver and Luciano was a wonderful guide who explained everything very clearly and was very patient with questions. The wine stop was very good and there is a long history attached to it. We had just enough time in Pienza and Montepulciano and the bus was very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Lovely and unforgettable experience with this tour! Our tour guide Luca was very accommodating and was able to highlight each place in Val D’Orcia we went to. We enjoyed wine tasting in Montalcino, exploring the beautiful towns of Pienza and Montalcino. Would definitely try this again and recommend to others as well. Thank you!

Yesterday we did a splendid tour to taste Brunello at Montalcino, then on to the pretty town of Pienza with ample time for lunch, then to the famous hilltop town of Montelpulciano, including a trip to the depths of a fascinating underground cantina. The tastings were very generous and at all the stops there was plenty of time to explore. Along the way we made a bonus stop to take photos of the unique Tuscan countryside. Our guide LUCA was exceptional and his knowledge of the history of the wines and the area were terrific. His English is ideal. Complimenti Luca and his driver, a great day. Charmaine and Ted
