What people are saying about Montepulciano

From the beginning of the trip the tour guide Valentina was very welcoming and ensured her guests were treated with the upmost respect. Valentina was very knowledgeable from the history of certain areas of our trip to her recommendations for food and sites to see after the tour. The overall experience of the locations visited we’re breathtaking. The additional tour guides were also welcoming and informative. If I were to visit Rome again I would highly book another trip with this company to ensure I get the best experience during my time in Italy.

Beautiful tour inside this historic cellar located in the heart of Montepulciano. Ron gave a nice, engaging tour, and made us discover the history of this beautiful (and small) winery.
