The whole experience was excellent. The guide was perfect. The total time of the trip is just perfect. You have time to see all the vine yards through the bus, a very lovely guy explains the Chianti wine at the first winery, and you can test the 3 wines. Then in the traditional village, you have the time to see and explore the area and in the same village, you taste the second round of the wines.

We were more than thrilled to support an organic vinery, it did not disappoint. Beautiful property, amazing view and the delicious wine! Our guide was very knowledgeable which made this experience exceptional. I would highly recommend it.

Very beautiful experience! The guide was polite and the landscape of Toscan was really amazing!

It is worth it! Beautiful town and charming Radda, and taste wine at two wineries is worth it!

Great way to see the beautiful scenery of Tuscany while we were staying in Florence
